Another snow day! Yippee! We even made the national news this morning on The Early Show, they were talking about the storm and that it was going to go all the way to Bangor Maine. Actually it’s going further then that, the whole state is going to get clobbered and on into Canada. (Hi Pea! I wanted to share some of this snow with you!) We could get up to 14 inches of the white stuff so schools are canceled again today. The poor kids will be going to school into July if this keeps up.
I have a new washing machine. It plays music. Now what’s up with that? My old machine breathed it’s last breath last week, I’m sure its premature demise was brought on by the heavy king size bedspread that I was always washing due to the fact that it is white and Noodles likes to sleep on it…….
Sooooo…yesterday they delivered my new machine with a bigger tub to accommodate heavy loads I discovered it plays music when you turn it on or off. I prefer to pick my own music but rather then wash our clothes on a rock in the brook I will put up with it. It’s only for a few seconds anyhow but why do they think we all want that added feature? There is too much noise in the world as it is. I think I will check the directions book and see if it can be turned off. (Slow blog day when I have to write about a washing machine.)
We are getting clobbered with snow! We have about 20 inches and it’s still coming down. It has been wild with white outs all afternoon. I didn’t leave the house all day other then to go out and shovel my path to the birdfeeder on the back deck. The turkeys weren’t around or the deer, they tend to yard up during a storm but they will be out tomorrow.
My kids, g-kids and Cousin K just came and got my snowmobile as they needed an extra and are out for a ride. It will be beautiful out there tonight with all the new snow. I have invited them back for spaghetti after their ride. I’d like to make a cake that I saw on the Food Channel yesterday but everyone seems to be watching their weight lately so I guess I shouldn’t tempt anyone.
I finally found a bedspread and curtains for Mr. D’s room here at the house. I have been looking for some time and found this pattern in a catalog so with his approval I sent for it.
He has always been intrigued by pirates so I guess this fits the bill.
We are supposed to have some of the coldest temperatures that we have had in 2-3 years next week. 30* below in some areas! Ouch! It’s the kind of weather that when you breathe in through your nose your nostrils stick together! Now just picture that!!! :o)
