Baby It's Cold Outside!

It's 35 degrees outside right now. Tonight it's supposed to be 13 degrees and tomorrow night it's supposed to get down to 9 degrees.

Now for my friends up north, you're probably about ready to reach through your computer screens and give me a virtual smack upside my head. Especially FarmChick ! Check out her blog and look at the pictures of "The Chair" and the amount of snow she's getting!

I am really really looking forward to our first snow. Sunday's forecast for this area of NC is calling for a 30% chance of precipitation, but I doubt it'll be snow.
All I know is I'm ready for some SNOWCREAM! I absoluetly LOVE it! My mammaw used to make it for us when we were kids.

I remember one winter, while I was at Mars Hill College, living in Fox Dorm, I got the craving for some snowcream. I was sitting in the dorm room with some friends, and we decided to make a trip to the grocery store! After finding out that the roads were way to dangerous to drive on, we decided to walk. Please understand that it just wasn't a little bit of snow, it was a dern blizzard almost. It was freezin' cold!! I couldn't find my gloves or a scarf, so we tied towels around our hands and face, and put my coat on to head out! My friend Aimee D. also made the trip with me. We went just to buy a few items needed for snowcream! Stupid, I know---but it was soo worth it!
Here's our recipe for SnowCream
2 cans evaporated milk
2 cups regular sugar
1 tsp vanilla flavoring
Mix all this in a large bowl. Add CLEAN snow and stir. I promise you won't be disappointed!
Remember that joke about yellow snow? I just went back in time, in my mind, and heard my Pappaw Fred bellerin' laughin' after telling us never to eat yellow snow. He was so much fun!
I googled snowcream and found this picture with lots of sprinkles added too! Yummy!
We're scheduled to be out of school this coming Monday for Martin Luther King, Jr.'s Holiday. I have so many things on my "TO DO LIST" for that day.
You probably could care less, hahaha, but for me to be held accountable, I'm going to let you in on my plans:
1. Clean out my closet--donate stuff I haven't worn in awhile to our local Goodwill.
2. Clean and organize my craft room/computer room. It's a horrid mess!
3. Get laundry caught up.
4. Decide to scratch #1-#3 above and finally watch those 2 movies on the top of our TV from Netflix that have been there for about 3 weeks while Lil R has a great day at daycare.
I'm thinking #4 sounds the best!
But...if I get those things done, I'll be so proud of myself!
If you're off of work on Monday, what are your plans?
Enjoy your day today!

Hi,

I wandered over from Tardevil's blog because she tagged me too (she's the best) for the photo fun. I love your blog layout it's so cute.

Have fun with the snow ice cream. We haven't had a lick of snow yet in Maryland.

Right now it's 21 degrees here and the low tonight is 7. High tomorrow is in the single digits with windchills negative!!! Madison County schools were out today. Brrrr. My bones are cold :)

My husband and I did a closet clean a couple of weekends ago and ended up with 8 trashbags full of clothes to take to goodwill. It was really nice getting rid of things I never worse because now I feel like I have more to wear because I can find it!!!
