Let it snow!

  • Yesterday it snowed all afternoon. We had a fire in the wood burning stove and our small family (3) had an early dinner. TheKid had to work last night so he was gone by 2:00pm so the rest of the afternoon it was just CarGuy and me. A pretty quiet Christmas. I spent the majority of the afternoon knitting a Jibber for Finn.
  • I'm feeling a bit better. It's just a slow improvement every day.
  • An off hand remark I made about inventorying Auntie's books and knick-knacks by hand, netted me a new laptop for Christmas! Now I need to set up a database for the inventory. I love my new laptop (except for Vista). I used a neighbor's WiFi yesterday to download AVG Free Virus protection.
  • Funny thing: every one in the family but me received slippers. And I need them too!
  • We have more cold and snow predicted for tomorrow. Brrr.
  • And to make this post quilt related, I got the Winter 4 Seasons Quilt top finished and basted! Woo Hoo! It's ready to quilt. I'm on a roll.


  1. Does the snowman offer include shipping and handling? I'd like 3, please *s*

  2. What a great imaginative sign! LOL

    I also have AVGFree and really like it a LOT. No more Norton for me!

  3. I forgot to mention, we actually received snow - a bunch 5-6 inches. Seems it usually looses it's punch before it gets here, but not this time. It was a lovely surprise Christmas morning.

  4. Ha!! Love that sign!! I am glad you are feeling a bit better, just takes 10-14 days no matter what sometimes...

    I am so glad you are knitting for Finn!! I think she will so enjoy that.


  5. Oh - a new computer! Just what I need. Although Jim promises to fix the computer today! I got slipper though :)) Which I really needed.

    Glad to hear you are feeling a bit better. Happy New Year!!!

    Can you send the unassembled snowman up here and we could put it together for New Years - LOL!

  6. Cute Cute Cute Sign! We did not have a white Christmas :(

    I too got a new laptop for Christmas. I haven't had any issues with Vista yet, but we can certainly commiserate if you need someone to vent at re: Vista LOL.

    I am just having issues getting EQ6 loaded. EQ5 was no problem at all, but the upgrade is not liking me LOL.

    Enjoy your new laptop :)

  7. Your snowman sign is hilarious! We had a snowfree Christmas. Our weatherman was very disappointed, since so much of the country did receive snow.

  8. What a great sign...very funny!!!

  9. Ah, snow. It's hard for me to imagine what that must be like.

    Hope you continue to improve. Happy 2008!

  10. I didn't mean to imply that I had never seen snow, cause I have. I just can't imagine my garden all covered in it when I look out the window or walk out the door. My garden would have to be so different to with stand snow dumping on it. Our climate is very different.
    Cheers !

  11. Love the sign but would hate that much snow!
    Hope you're feeling better.

  12. I would two snowmen please.

  13. Great sign-lol
    even my teens got a big laugh from it :)
    And nursing homes are full of theives :(
    when dh's grandfather was in one things would go missing all the time...sad but so true.
