Being iced in for several days means more posts! It also means that we are getting a little stir crazy! So, we took twenty minutes to bundle up this morning just so we could spend about twenty minutes outside. Twenty degrees outside with a real feel temperature of seven is ridiculously cold, and my Texas born body is not made for those temperatures.
Since it is solid ice with a little snow mixed in, it is really hard. That means no sinking feet when you walk across it, no snowmen, and no snowballs. So, we took our watercolor sets outside to paint on the ice! Even Pluto loved it! He breaks off chunks of ice to eat and likes to run and slide down the hill!
