I Think I'm Ready

So, we have more snow in the forecast.
Thus I went to the pantry shelf and determined that we have more than enough mac-n-cheese, Vienna sausages and Ski soda to make it through a few days of being housebound out here in the sticks.


I have a loaded Kindle, so I am set.

It's possible that I should have brought the Christmas air horn back from my parent's house. I might need it to break up a few sibling arguments during our time together.
*Disclaimer* Dad if you are reading this, I really don't allow the children to exist off of mac-n-cheese and Vienna sausages. The Ski is reserved for me. Love, your one and only, favorite daughter.

  3. LOL! Love the note to dad. And love the 2nd use of the air horn. That would probably be put to better use at your place than w/ jack russells. :)

  6. I am so prepared for the next two storms coming our way in the next few days they are probably going to pass us. Two and a half freezers full of food plus the pantry. Will this winter never end!

  7. If we don't get a snow day or two out of this I am going to be truly unhappy - and I want a really big one, too! Of course, our local station is saying the bulk of it will be south of Nashville...just my luck :(

  8. Oh to be stuck at home for a few days. Sounds like heaven to me!

    Have fun! ~Andrea~

  9. You sound like my hubs...if he has his Kindle, he's all set. I'm not even sure he'd need the food! LOL!
    We're supposed to get more, too. We already have a fresh layer of snow from the last two days. It's so beautiful!

  10. Seems like everyone in Blog Town is gearing up for some type of storm. We are getting snow over the next three days, which is good -- we need the moisture.

    No kids here to blast with an air horn, although the dogs do get rather figgety after being in the house for a few hours.

    Stay warm!

  11. Mac and cheese and vienna sausage sounds good... so you wouldn't need chocolate to survive? I'm afraid I'd have to have some sort of chocolate in the house. The pictures are beautiful. Keep warm and enjoy!!

  12. no snow here...but it is cold. still fighting the post-holiday slump...where is that cookbook?

  13. There are times when a little snow sounds good to me here with our tropical warm weather. Enjoy your snow and don't eat too many vienna sausages. :)

  14. December 2006 that last I saw snow. What a joy it must be living at that place. Love the pictures much. Please have you all a good new week.

  15. Nothing better than being "snowed in" in the country! We are supposed to get ice and as long as I have electricity - the pantry is stocked and we're good to go. If we lose power - well, Vienna sausage sounds pretty good to me!

  16. We got sub zerp now but no new snow. Methinks Mac and Cheese soulnd more than adquate for survival food. :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. more snow days for you??

    oh...just buy 30 lbs of potatoes and you'll be set for food :)

    have a great week!

  18. Glad you are prepared....you can jazz up the mac 'n cheese many different ways...haha Enjoy the snowfall!

  19. Farmchick -- I'm snowbound too with lots of food on hand. I learned from the ice storm that we had a few years ago that a larder of food is necessary in the winter. The uphill road to my place has turned into a great sledding hill not fit for my little truck to navigate. Maybe I should buy a sled. -- barbara.

  20. I read your profile. I grew up in Chicago and now live in a SMALL TOWN too...your so right about the fish bowl!! I thought i was the only one that felt that way...LOL! love your blog!

  21. We are expecting that storm by Wednesday! The city probably has the snowplows already standing ready after all the criticism it got last storm...us cranky New Yorkers...lol Send the kids out to build snowmen while you Kindle :)

  22. A really strange thought for us the idea of being 'housebound', and this happens even at few hundred miles from here, in Northern Italy.
    What's wrong in mac-n-cheese and Vienna sausages?

  23. Sorry to hear about the bad weather approaching, but loading the Kindle is a good move.

  24. The note to your dad is great :).

  25. Sounds like you're set!

    We haven't had any snow lately and our snowy landscape could use a little freshening.

    Our plan is to head north to our cabin in northern WI to go snowmobiling next weekend so we'd love some fresh snow up north, too. The cabin is about an hour south of Lake Superior and believe it or not, that's close enough for us to get lake effect snow up there.

    Hope you don't have to use the airhorn too often... ;)

    Blessings on your day!

  26. We're supposed to be getting some snow here as well...but not as much as our last snowfall. I hope you don't get too much, but if you do I'm glad you're prepared.

  27. I like your music. Made me feel my oats for a second or two. LOL

    I like the old fence posts and wish there were more of them around. I don't much like the snow and just learned we are due for more -- 3 to 5 inches.

  28. What fond memories of my childhood your post brings to mind. I remember one winter in particular, about 1978, that we were snow and ice bound for around three weeks. We exhausted the pantry, deep freeze and anything else we could dream up. We were without electricity for 2 weeks so Mama cooked soups and stews over the fireplace. Those were our "good ole days".

  30. LOL....
    I made sure I had all the ingredients for chili before this snow fell!!!! And oh it smells good in the oven!
    Hope you don't have to use the air horn/ha

  31. The pictures of snow are beautiful but it has caused enough disruption for one winter now... is it not spring soon ? !

    ReplyDelete
  32. Too funny - us KY gals can never be without SKI! Not me anyway! Happy Winter!

  33. I also made a quick stop at the local packaging store. Have you tried Seagram's Dark Honey? It is soooooo good, and I figured I might need some extra anti-freeze! It is also good for dealing with little girls who are going stir-crazy (a little bit soothes the nerve just dandy!)

    Here's to snow!

  34. Great shots! Lovin the mac and cheese idea! Stay warm.

  35. My neighbor drives down to Kentucky just for Ski!! I am in Atlanta and snowed it hoping to head to Indiana late tomorrow. Crossing my fingers!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I am visiting downtown Atlanta right now. I am sure Kentucky is handling this snow better than Atlanta. The city is just shut down which is not good when there are no restaurants open. Today was the first day of what seems like in my entire life I went WITHOUT coffee. I'm ready to get to my "normal" snow on the prairie!

  38. Paul - The pictures were taken here on our farm. It is a beautiful place.

  39. We were snowed in for a couple of days, then iced in for a couple more. Glad I prepared ahead, too.
    There you go with those fencepost's again. LOL Love them!
