Another Snowy Monday

Yep, it's another snowy Monday.  It snowed over the weekend (surprise) and the weatherman is calling for another storm to come in this afternoon.  Will this snow ever end??  I have my doubts, so when I rescheduled my drs. appt. last week, I made it for May 11.  Hopefully our driveway will be clear by then.  I think I heard the snow plow just plow it closed again.  Thanks, guys.

We had a really nice weekend.  Friday evening Kris and Izzy, Pat and Pam, and Krissy and Bubby were here for dinner.  We ordered fish, shrimp, clams and, of course, chicken tenders from a local tavern for dinner.  Don't know why I was so hungry for seafood, especially with Lent rapidly approaching, but I was.  Mary and Jimmy had gone furniture shopping, and I asked them to leave the kids here.  After all, how much fun can furniture shopping be for 6 and 9 year olds?  Then Saturday night, Pam and Pat kept the kids while the parents went out for Valentine's Day.  After taking Izzy to her Nunnie's, they brought the other two here for ice cream sundaes.  Who knew that they make sugar-free hot fudge and caramel sauces.  The grandkids brought me a bouquet of flowers for Valentine's Day.  We put it on the top of the bookcase with the flowers that Rod had gotten me earlier that day.  I love flowers, and prefer carnations to roses.  The carnations last longer it seems.  One bouquet has carnations and daisies.  The other has carnations and white bells (don't know what they are).  They look so pretty.

But Sunday -- that was a day for just Rod and I.  We spent a lazy day watching the Olympics and playing on Facebook.  Then for dinner, Rod grilled steaks and baked potatoes -- yes, outside.  The jury is still out on whether he is sane or not.  But, I have to admit it was a welcomed taste.  For dessert, Rod had bought a cheesecake assortment on Saturday when he went shopping (don't you just love a man who will shop for groceries).  We snacked on that all weekend.  The wonderfully lazy day ended with a concert on our local PBS station by Celtic Women.  I love their music, their voices, their orchestra.  Hope your weekend was just as wonderful.
