Natasha and I were held hostage in the apartment this past weekend.
Wisconsin had an April blizzard that left around 21″ of wet, heavy snow in Appleton, under which was water and ice.
Tons of white winter fun!
So, we spent the weekend cooking, baking, watching TV, surfing the internet, sewing, playing with the cats, laying around, etc. Natasha braved the awful weather on Saturday to follow her daughter’s car and make sure she made it home safe. Natasha is such a good mom, or “sheepdog” as she calls herself.
Saturday night, when all of the other nonsense was done, the couch called to us and we settled in for a movie. Our choice was “The Greatest Showman,” a musical that told the story of P.T. Barnum and company. We weren’t sure that a circus musical would entertain us, but how can you go wrong with Hugh Jackman? I mean, Hugh Jackman!
When the movie was over, we headed off to bed. I was in my bathroom when I heard pound-pound-pounding from Natasha’s bedroom.
I poked my head out the bedroom door and asked,
“Are you hanging pictures?”
Natasha responded, “Ha! No, I’m (blah, blah, blah).” (I didn’t understand what she said.)
“What? You’re doing the dishes?”
“No, I’m trying to get my window open.”
Natasha sleeps with her window cracked open during the cold weather, but the snow and ice from the blizzard had made it hard to push the window open by hand. She used a hammer to give it a nudge.
Creative use of a heavy object…
This, too, shall pass, the winter-like weather. The polar vortex plunge will head back toward the north pole, the snow will melt (slowly, we hope), the land will return to real spring and warmer temperatures, and Natasha will stop hanging pictures in her pajamas.
