Don’t do that at house

This skilled roofer needed to go retrieve some icicles for a few keen kiddos!

With all that ice, now we have to maintain heat in some way!

The Solo Range that we obtained final yr has proved worthy of its value. We’ve been utilizing it a lot as a result of it’s simply transported round. (Our outdated low-cost fireplace pit was not possible to maneuver with out two individuals.) 

Burning ice = a lesson on the states of matter!

Staying Heat Via Sports activities

One of the best ways to heat up is to maneuver your physique! Severely, typically I’m freezing inside and go stroll on the treadmill for 10 minutes simply to heat up my core. Works even higher than a bathe! Pump out some biceps when you’re at it.

Nonetheless tremendous enjoyable to play on the turf, and my group crushed our first sport 12-3. I saved my masks on the entire time as a result of it saved me heat – lol. 


Guess who taught who to play chess? Mazen taught ME! And he beat me 5 occasions in a row. It’s been a enjoyable exercise to do collectively. I had no concept chess was such a fast-paced sport (perhaps I’m doing it improper…!).

Then we obtained to play a number of rounds of Jaipur!! That is the BEST two-person sport that my pal Ellen launched to me. It’s a little bit strategic and a little bit card sport. You play three rounds and better of three wins. 

Within the morning we ready a pleasant brunch to take pleasure in in our quiet home. JM Inventory biscuits (from our freezer), half an omelet, grapefruit, grapes. I’m consuming ALL the grapefruit this time of yr. 

Take a look at these snuggle boys who had a lot enjoyable on the grandparents’! They’d pizza for dinner and French toast for breakfast and apparently slept like logs.
