I have not posted any snow pictures, although dad put a couple on his picasa site. I guess at this point I'm getting more anxious about the snow than enjoying it. I am halfway ready but have several errands I wanted to do, and don't know if I will do them today or not. Last night when we came home from Steve and Sandra's there was a little drifitng in the driveway, even though Tim had kept it open by shoveling several times during the day. This morning there's a good 8 inches in front of the garage door which would need shoveling to get the Sante Fe out.
I am feeling just the teensiest bit housebound. It's really not bad, the snow is beautiful to watch. I had thought about going out to do a couple of errands, but after shoveling the berm out I lost the mood to go out and just enjoyed staying home the rest of the day. Susie has done a more than adequate job of showing the snow here in the area, so I won't post any pictures tonight.
Tomorrow night we are going to (another) Christmas Party at Tim's house (Tim's boss). Yay. It is a brand new house, so that should be interesting.
So you can see the weather this morning and: (the picture is blurry but you get the idea)
1) Be lonesome you're not up here 2) Be glad you're down in SLO 3) Both
It's very pretty to see the snow. Dad had to go buy shovels for the guys this morning and bring them all the way up to the office! In spite of asking them this week if they had shovels and they said yes, he got a call during the night that they didn't have any shovels.
The only reason I'm going to go out today is to go to Albertsons for a few minutes. It's a perfect day to stay inside.
Dense fog today - it feels like you're walking through a wall of moisture.
We had a wonderful time with our two workers last evening and this morning. Jenith is probably 60ish - actually went to tech school in the Cities years ago, so she knows lots of MN people.
Tim and I just finished having a massage. He had been having some neck trouble after holding the chain saw above his head to cut down branches from Diane's tree. The chiro fixed it and then a massage helped.
Some of the ladies publish things they appreciate about their husbands, so I thought I would add a couple: - I said I wanted to plant some herbs on my windowsill and he made me this lovely cedar planter.
- Every year for my birthday he gets me a gift certificate to a quilting store - which is exactly what I want the most.
- He clears the counter and loads the dishwasher every night after supper
He never complains about what I cook and never says he dislikes something.
That's it for starters.
We had a lovely birthday celebration yesterday starting at Red Robin and finishing up at Jeff and Susies. Susie had made a lovely ice cream cake with mint oreos in it. Thanks, Susie! After which Hunter provided us with some entertainment. We forgot our camera.
I want to figure out how to make this blog wider - I know you can do it - I just have to take the time to read up on it - half the screen is wasted.
Here are the potholders, Carissa, that I made for the girls, as well as the grocery store bags (Ginny, you will probably recognize the fabric). I got them from that U-Handbag site from your blog. I made a few changes. I put a stiffener in the bottom and did the handles slightly different.
I see some of the girls add an old picture from time to time for amusement, so I thought I would share this one. Long before the current generation had thought of making faces at the camera, our boys had already invented it - haha.
