I ended up with another day off of school on Thursday, but daycare was open. Lydia had awful cabin fever by this point, so I took her and William to school. I have no shame in admitting I returned home and did some cleaning and had some lazy time on the couch with Molly, who wanted to sleep in between my legs.
My lunch group does a potluck meal every once in awhile and we did one on Friday. We had planned to do it Wednesday, but due to the school closings, we moved it. I made one of my favorite dishes, grape salad. Don't be fooled by the "salad" part, because it is anything but healthy. It is a mixture of grapes, sugar, cream cheese, sour cream, and brown sugar.
My parents came to visit for the weekend and we had also invited my sister and brother-in-law to join us for dinner on Saturday night. I was getting impatient because my sister was running late, so I sent her a random assortment of pictures. This one of Lydia and me is probably the least ridiculous.
It was beautiful outside today, so we spent some time playing in the driveway. I had been commenting all weekend that we hadn't seen Oliver in awhile. Oliver, as a reminder, is our neighbor's cat who often ends up on our front porch, especially when we have visitors. Lo and behold, I looked up at one point and saw him running across his yard to us. Even though his expression in the picture may say otherwise, I think he was happy to see me.
