Being productive...

     It seems as if the productivity level has risen here that last few days.  Lots of little things being done. Everyone feeling quite accomplished, even if for a short while.  There were colorful edgings being added onto long forgotten items so that someone's desk could look complete and finished.  A bit of experimenting with a long forgotten pattern book has turned out some pretty fabulous table pretties.  Even if the experimenting created a lot more work than necessary with working with two colors.  So many little tails of yarn to deal with during the project.  But well worth the work once the project was done.

     The girls had been patiently waiting for today to come after keeping a close eye on the forecast the past few days.  Snow was coming and they couldn't wait to see it.  There was the usual raking of leaves and blowing leaves off the roof the other day before the snow fell.  A quick job with everyone pitching in on the last 40 degree day around here for a while.  It was a bright sunny day for all to enjoy.  Then afterwards a big pot of yummy soup was created with the help of everyone.  Gotta love beautiful Fall days like that.

     This morning found two people getting up earlier than usual just so that they could see the snow start falling.  It was quite pretty to see it in the early morning light.  They did their school work at their desks just so they could watch snowflakes fall outside.  I even found myself up in my room sitting in front of the window just so I could stop and watch the snow every once in a while.  Such a gorgeous day really.  Everyone doing their thing in a quiet house enjoying the peacefulness of the snow outside.  Every once in a while a little one would squeal "Oh my gosh it's so pretty outside!".  It did put smiles on all our faces.

     Hopefully more projects can be finished the next couple of days being that the weather will be about the same.  Snowy and cold.  Everyone knows that when it is snowing outside I don't go past the sidewalk out front.  I stay in and hibernate as much as possible.  I didn't even have to shovel snow today because the girls just had to do it without any help from me.  I do love days like today.  Good things do happen when it snows.
