Weekend Wind-Down

I am more than R.E.A.D.Y. for this weekend!  It has been a very long week in our home.  My husband and I have had colds all week.  Though they are only colds, it's been rather exhausting for day-to-day needed household activities (like dishes or dinner).  Only two of our three children have colds, and they are quite mild.  The kicker of the week has been the lack of school.  Monday was a snow day.  Tuesday both Brother (preschool) and Big Sister (first grade) had a two hour delay.  Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday no school due to widespread (86% of our county) power outages, downed trees, blocked roads, and ICE.  We are extremely grateful to only have lost phone and internet for 36 hours.  Some are still without power, and this is winter in Pennsylvania.  

Though I was without internet, I had a few posts scheduled and they went up without any problems.  You can see our chicken farm visit, tips for making applesauce with kids, and our favorite pizza crust recipe.

If you are joining our Weekend Wind-Down Party, be sure to take a minute to meet the hosts and follow the rules. Check out the favorite featured posts from last week.
