I couldn't resist, we got some snow Sunday night into Monday morning. It actually started out with rain and thunder and lightening Sunday night; that was weird. Then moved to snow sometime in the middle of the night, so everything was icy the next morning and snow day for the kids.
But I couldn't resist. Quail in snow........
Last time we spoke, I mentioned we put an offer on a house. We actually got what we wanted (minus the fridge, but the realtor says always to ask for the fridge, so we did) and then we turned down the deal. Mainly because the house didn't have a carport or a garage. They had converted the garage into a family room; a nice one, but there was no covering for cars and with the extreme heat in Phoenix, plus the hailstorms they get, we feel a carport or garage is necessary and would want to add at a minimum a carpot and when we added up costs, we decided to pass on it.
Then we found the perfect house late last week. Great location, price, etc. Went to the open house on Saturday morning, us and half of Phoenix I think (I exaggerate just a little, but believe you me, there was a lot of activity at that house). Bottom line, we made a really good offer, more than the asking price, etc. There were multiple offers on the house. We didn't get it. It went to someone who offered cash and a short closing time. The seller was an elderly man who wanted to move closer to his children. Closing would be in a week instead of the 4 weeks we would need to fund a loan.
House hunting again this weekend.
Signed up for A/Z this year. Due to a wonderful case of insomnia, I found myself awake at 4 a.m. the morning of signups. When I finally realized sleep was not going to come that night, I got up and went on the computer. Saw the signups so I signed up; #41 on the list; my best starting number so far. If interested, sign up here.
We are on baby watch. Due date is 02/16; our daughter in law just turned 38 weeks yesterday. Could come at any time! Anything after 37 weeks is considered full time, so when God is ready, so is my daughter in law!
And finally, remember that Sesame Street game when they would have 3 items that belonged together and 1 that didn't and the kids would have to guess what didn't belong there? There was even a cute song that went along with it.
Well, definitely one of these things certainly doesn't belong in the picture below. But they all get along fine (the quail scatter the small birds and doves away, but leave the bunny perfectly alone).
Until next time :)
