Before I get into the fact that we have had more snow this week than we did all last year and I'm tired of it already, I actually took some pictures of the snow on my new digital camera and downloaded ~ or uploaded , however you want to look at it ~ to my computer. I'll insert them so you can see. Aren't you proud of me! I did it ALL BY MYSELF!
The first picture is taken from my kitchen door looking at the firehouse across the street; the second picture is looking in the opposite direction. On Thursday we had 9" of snow on my front stoop; when I decided to feed the birds today and tried to go out my kitchen door, I had to shovel away 10" of snow.
It's been a busy day. I've got a box ready to send to you, Scoots, and I have another one that I'll ship at the same time to Donut at her office. I've still got stuff to finish before I head to Illinois, so this won't be long. I've baked today - 8 of Grandma's cherry cakes. I also plan to do a batch of her datenut bread. I'm going to need a day off to rest up from today. I was planning on taking a nap this afternoon, but that's not going to happen.
Back to the snow - It didn't start snowing until very early this morning, but it made up for it. We were only supposed to get 3" - 6" today. My yardstick is getting a workout. I knew the storm was coming in so I got as much done yesterday as I could. I didn't even plan on going to church, I just started in knitting and baking when I got up. To hear the media this morning you woulda thought we were living in Tampa and the storm was hitting there. This is New England, folks!
I like your pictures - especially the camel. When are you going to ride on one? Actually, it's good to see you post any message on the blog. Keep 'em coming - even if it's just to say hello!
Well, knitting and wrapping are calling. New England Patriots are beating the Jets - AGAIN! Maybe this will shut up the Jets. I don't want to get too cocky - I don't want to jinx the Pats. They're playing here in New England. It bet it is COLD at Gillette Stadium.
Well, Scoot, you can brag to your buddies that your technically-challenged aunt figured out digital camera transfer all by herself! To the rest of you - WATCH OUT! I ALMOST called Ben, but decided to be stubborn enough to do it by myself. And I won. HOORAY!
Be well, be smart and KYHD! Let us know if you or any of your friends need anything.
