Japanese Restaurant

We have a new Shogun Japanese restaurant here in town. Vince and I went there for lunch today and it was really good. The sun is trying to shine today; the snow is melting. Most roads have at least one lane open. In July, I'm betting I will be wishing for snow! :)

The White Stuff

Goodness, almost 20 inches of snow is a LOT of snow. It began snowing early on 12/22 and snowed all day and half the night. Then the wind blew and we had some really huge drifts. Pictures of the snow. Try getting a mini-doxie to go outside in 20 inches of snow . . just not gonna happen. We didn't have mail for three days, haven't had trash pickup and have generally been hostage inside the house. Today it began getting above freezing so finally the snow is beginning to melt. I am very thankful that this happened over the Christmas holidays or the kids would have missed a whole week of school. Our area just isn't equipped to remove this much snow. During the time when Vince was home, he was able to install the Circle Lord on my longarm and I'm very happy to have that done. I also got the instructions written for three patterns and am sewing on one of them to test the directions before giving the pattern to my testers next week. The wheels of progress are slowly turning.

Numb Feeling Kinda Day

Chad is gone to his dad's for Christmas. The news is awful, it's cold and gray. Christmas just isn't Christmas when I'm away from my family. We're waiting on a big snow storm . . possibly 10 inches tonight. Not much for those who are used to having lots of snow but it will shut this whole area down for days. It doesn't matter to me though . . Vince is off til after Christmas, I have plenty to keep us busy if the electricity goes off, plenty of quilts to keep us warm . . I guess. I've never spent much time in zero degree weather without heat. Guess this could be my first and last post if I turn into an ice cube! :) Poor Vince! He stopped at the grocery store, not thinking about the forecast. You'd think everyone in this town had to go to the grocery store when there's snow in the forecast. Thankfully, my pantry is full. Vince keeps reminding me that I am the one who can't wait for the first snow each year. Maybe this will be the year that breaks me of this anticipation.
