I'm taking one. I have to say, taking a sick day is hard for me. Anyone else? But I'm certainly under-the-weather, like the little drummer boy is playing inside my head.
Pa Rum Pum Pum Pum!
So I'm all tucked into my room (at least until the girlies are out of school). But I can't just curl up and do nothing. I'll most likely spend the day cozied up with my laptop on my lap. That's what it's for, right? To sit on my lap, keeping me toasty.
And warmth is what I need right now because it's Jack Frost freezin' out there. Just ask the hummingbirds. I truly wonder how these sweet little guys don't turn into little birdsicles when it's this cold. Yesterday when we woke up to a white world, the feeders were covered with a good couple of inches of snow and the hummingbirds couldn't get to their food. Once we got it cleared, they went wild. This morning, their food was solid ice and the poor little guys were having a fit. We couldn't see them, but we could hear them clicking away.
The snow meant that building a snowman was a must. Well, I didn't build one, but the girlies did. And it was no ordinary snowman. He had to be a character; have some personality. So, they built a snowman outlaw. This picture was taken before he had his stolen bag of rocks...I mean bag of money.
That lasso reminds me of our December La La goals. Hope you're all doing better than I am!
Here's the snowman outlaw later. I believe this one was captured just after he left the saloon.
Here's to staying warm and healthy, friends.
