I have not done much online lately, except watch movie from Netflix! So far, I have seen the following:
Pride and Predjudice (1980) Jane Eyre (1983) Mansfield Park (1983) Persuasion (1995)
I really like these period pieces that take place either in England or America. I do like the English ones better though! And of all these movies that I have watched, I have only read 1 of the books, and that was Jane Eyre!
Well, not quite. But I do LOVE not going anywhere in this weather. It's cold(We are under a Wind Chill WARNING until tomorrow), and it's really snowy! I really like telling kids that I don't have a car during the day and can't go anywhere. It is supposed to warm up some next week, so that will be nice. Maybe then we will be able to shovel some this snow. It's just to darn cold right now!! I did go do some shopping on Monday night in advance of the storm, so we were set for food for a few days, including tonight. Hubby and I will have to get out tomorrow and do some more grocery shopping for the coming week.
Don't worry, I have stepped outside to get some fresh air, so no cabin fever here! Although when it does warm up, I will enjoy going out to do stuff. But for now, I am perfectly content to stay put!
I hope everyone had a nice New Year's Day. I fixed a traditional New Year's dinner of Blackeyed Peas and Cornbread. It was yummy!!
I did not make any resolutions because I do not/cannot keep them. So this year I said the heck with it, not gonna do it.
Hubby went back on the day shift at work today. I have enjoyed not having a car. I had told everyone that that was going to be the case from now on. So what happens this morning? One of the kids calls my cell, Kid: Mom do you have the car? Me: No, what did you do, miss the bus? Kid: yes So, needless to say, she was late for work. NOT MY PROBLEM!! I gave them all enough warning
Back to not having a car during the day, we did this partly so that I will quit driving so much. This brand new car, only 5 1/2 to 6 months old, already has over 12 thousand miles on it. NOT GOOD!! Also we thought my husband would be getting a different job, ( the lead tech at a different location). He did not get it. Very disappointing, but he thinks it may be a Blessing in disguise. I hope he is right. Anyway, back to the car, again. We are also hoping it will cut down on the gas consumption also. Anything will help at this point. I'm tired of being a taxi!
And with me being home all day, maybe I'll actually get off my duff and do something. Maybe.
We are supposed to be getting more snow on Wednesday and Thursday of this week, so I have to have hubby take me to the store this evening to do some shopping for the rest of the week. That way I can stay in the house, which suits me just fine, because it will also be very very cold, like below zero cold.
Over Christmas we got about 6 1/2 inches of snow, then more snow over that weekend. Hubby's oldest daughter came down from Omaha on Saturday, and did not leave until this morning because it snowed over this weekend. We had the 3rd snowiest December since the city started keeping records. 15 inches of snow all together.
