We had another huge snow storm this week that dropped more than 12 inches of snow on us. That resulted in an early release from school on Monday and then a snow day on Tuesday for me.
My poor husband still had to get to work at the hospital though, so this is him clearing the snow from the driveway at 4:45 a.m. 😫
Since I was home all day alone, I used my extra time to finish up many of the projects I started on the previous snow day from the week before! 😂
I put the finishing touches on this special project, which will be featured on the DIY Blog Hop next Sunday, February 7, so be sure to check back then, and I’ll show you how I made it, and why it’s so special to me. 💕
I finished my Vintage Button Heart on Reclaimed Wood project for round 2 of the Valentine’s Day Blog Hop yesterday.
I had fun arranging my sweet vintage dishes from my grandmothers, mom, and mother-in-law into a pretty display for Valentine’s Day.
I finally decided on a rug for my kitchen and got it ordered. But, it was too slippery and the edges would not lay down flat, which is bad, since this is a high traffic area in the kitchen. So, I orderd THESE rug grippers for the corners, and they are fabulous! The rug stays in place, but can be easily lifted up for cleaning, too.
Plus, I’m just so happy with this rug. It took me a long time to find one that was the right color, pattern, length and style, but this one is a keeper. My husband said, “Leave it to my wife to be able to find a rug that looks almost exactly like our granite counters.” 🤣 I hadn’t noticed, but he’s kind of right.
And finally, I baked some banana bread, using my mom’s tried and true recipe. Seriously, I’ve tried a lot of banana breads, and none are as good as this old standby.
Clearly, snow days are my jam. I’ve been getting so much done! I’m not sure why a snow day is any different than the other 1,345,920 days we’ve been trapped in the house due to a pandemic, but apparently it takes a blizzard to motivate me. 😂🤣 ❄️
