Too Cold For School

Or is it? Yesterday, it was -4 when I checked around 9:30 in the morning. My kids had the day off. Today, they are again off. The temp, when I checked around 2, was 8 degrees. I remember going to school when it was in the single digits, so I suppose they could go. But, I am glad they didn't, all the same. They are having so much fun just getting to flop here at home. Plus, it has given Boot a chance to show me things he thinks are funny on the internet (and why they think Lady Sovereign is scary...I still haven't figured it out, but Boot thinks the video he showed me should be all the explanation I need) & Pie the opportunity to sit and have tea with me. He loves to make tea for us & serve it in his lovely floral tea set. He has his own stash of tea bags that he keeps in his room. The room is a funny amalgamation of Boot's football stuff and Pie's beloved kitchen wares and vases. Plus, Star Wars everything.

I think I may use the cold weather as an excuse to make chocolate soup with animal crackers for our snack! Mmm...

MMMMM... Chocolate Soup. I didn't think that ANYTHING could lure me to Cleveland in this weather... any chance you could smuggle a little of that down here in a thermos next time you come down... Sprout would love you for ever. Chocolate is her favorite food group.

Hmm, I think I could figure out a way to come over and make it for you girls sometime this winter. In the meantime, see www.lunacooks.blogspot.com for the recipe.
