It was so nice...

...to stay home all day! I made ice cream and baked bread yesterday morning, so I was able to devote some time today to making several "Thank you" cards to send to the friends I/we visited while on vacation.

Before I could begin making cards however, I decided the card making supplies were far too disorganized (really, they were!), so I took everything out of the storage container and cleaned it thoroughly. After finding a nice basket to put the loose stamps in, I went through the loose pieces of paper I'd saved and discarded the ones that were bent and cut beyond use. At long last, there was a place for everything and everything was in its place. :)

My parents went to Bismarck for the day, so it was just my brothers and I at home. Andrew spent most of the day building up his computer with the new parts that arrived via UPS and Jacob did his schoolwork and then watched Andrew. It was snowing and blowing outside and yet warm and cozy inside, so it was nice to just have a relaxed day without too much going on...

As the saying goes, "Praise God for normal days, for there are far too few of them!"

Sounds like you had a wonderful day!

Oh and about you're liking opera... Doesn't sound too odd to me. We love opera too! :-)
