I have a bit more time to daydream about my lotto tickets. In case you've been living under a rock the Powerball lottery is up to $1.5 billion dollars. That is $1,500,000,000.00 That's a whole lot of freaking zeros. We don't normally play the lottery, but decided to let ourselves get caught up in the excitement and the daydreaming of what that much money would be like. Our discussions have been pretty fantastical and fun the past couple of days. Everything from the practical like hiring lawyers and financial advisers and setting up trust funds and donating to humanitarian causes to the more fun things like opening up a B&B with horses or building mansion overlooking the city. We've joked about personal chefs and buying all the lego kits. The girls said they'd redecorate their room and go on vacations. It sort of feels like Christmas did when we were kids. All that excitement and potential of what could be under that tree the next morning really is pretty fun. And who knows, maybe, just maybe our ticket beats the odds of one in 292 million... in the meantime, I'll be daydreaming...

And Maddie made homemade granola bars, modeled off the Larabar brand. They came out delicious, we had to keep tasting and adjusting the recipe because at first they were a bit bland.

I checked the forecast before heading to bed on the 2nd and it said, some snow by 3 pm tomorrow. We woke up Sunday morning and the entire porch was covered in a blanket of snow. I was planning on going to the grocery store that day, but not first thing. Even so, I got dressed and booked it to the store before conditions got worse. That early there was hardly anyone out and it was just snow, no ice yet.
