The words for this week here in Virginia are SNOW! and COLD!
Anticipating the snow Tuesday evening, I pulled out the crock pot and filled it with chicken. By the time the snow arrived the chicken and dumplings were ready. Oh and how good they made the house smelled. I opened up a handy roll of Grands biscuits and popped them in the oven while I dished out the good stuff in bowls.
I set the table with, what else, snowmen. I love my snowmen napkin rings. I wish I had gotten more than two but that was all that was left when I found them a few years ago. Notice too, my cute Thirty-one Carry All. It's perfect for napkins. The snowmen pattern was only available for a short time.
I love snowmen but I do not love snow or cold! I will be staying in and working from home until this mess goes away.
Even my snowman flag is dressed for the tropics.
The chicken and dumplings were good and warmed us up. We had some apple cake for dessert. No pictures of that. Gobbled up before I remembered to snap a shot.
Stay warm peeps!

|See my bundled up girls in the window? They came from Target. Remind me|
of my girls.
|Here's the bench from Pier 1. I'm suddenly loving trays. I picked this pretty|
one up at Goodwill before the holidays for under $3.
|Only got 4 of these dishes at Cracker Barrel last year. |
Wish I'd got more pieces to the set.
|My daughter gave me this cute sign for Christmas. It matches so well!|

This is our sweet Sugar during the holidays. She was very sick last week and had to have surgery. She may be an old lady, but she came through the surgery like a champ and is feeling much better!
Hope everyone has a good start to the week. We are getting ready for record cold temps here tonight.
