Another beautiful day in Maine with turkeys on the deck........




Went to the gym this morning for my work out and of course had to stop at Jo-Ann Fabric on the way home. I don't care much for their fabric but they have all the other tools that I use for sewing in abundance and of course they have a great scrapbooking section. I needed to pick up some extra seam rippers for my quilt class as I know my beginners will be doing a lot of tearing out until they get the hang of things. I still have days that I tear out things, some projects go together beautifully and others it seems like everything goes wrong and you have to rip it out. Oh well, keeps it interesting.




We went out snowmobiling last night after dinner. It was probably -20 wind chill factor but we dress accordingly so weren't cold. In the woods it is much warmer and with the ice on the overhanging branches glistening in the moonlight it was like going under a beautiful sparkling arbor. Forgot to take my camera but there will be another time for that.




Just finished up the yummy dessert I got from Tina at Palm Tree Fanatic. It is the one with double stuff Oreo's, cream cheese, powdered sugar, Cool whip etc etc.. It is just delicious and I'm sure it's calorie free........




Going to try one I picked up over at Susie's Space next, it is a Strawberry cake with strawberry jello in it plus frozen strawberries, eggs, frosting, oil, etc etc another one of those calorie free desserts. Ahem...... I knew I was going to like blogging and meeting all kinds of interesting people but I didn't know I was going to gain weight in the process!




It's beautiful here today, the sun is shining and the snow is fresh and clean. Cold weather is a middle age woman with hot flashes dream come true! Sometimes I feel like going right out and rolling in the snow to cool off when one of those power surges hit. Suppose the neighbors would call the men in the white jackets to come get me if I did that?

Your description of your snowmobiling experience sounds absolutely wonderful. I long for the cold weather...today it was sunny, in the 80's and it felt like one long hot flash all day long. Give me cold winter weather any day!!!

i would have loved to go out snowmobiling in the moon light like you discribed it, It sounds wonderful. I don't thin i have been on a snowmobile in about 12 years, how fun is that. All that dessert sounds so yummy.. ~sigh~ I'm trying to lose 20 pounds though to get to where I was before I had kids 11 years ago. I would be happy if i could just seem to lose those 1st 5, I am no good at sticking to any sort of healthy eatting and exersize plan but eatting yummy desserts.. I'm very good at that :)

Snowmobiling - how fun!!! We never get to do that here!!

My husband took some guys fishing this weekend that were here from Buffalo, NY. He had on ski bibs and bundled up....one of them had on short sleeves and was laughing at him the whole time.
