Good morning. Wow, taking a day off on purpose is not as easy as I thought it would be. All morning, I was having "bloggy withdrawal". Go ahead, laugh. This blog has become such a big part of my daily life. I started my blog six years ago, on January 18, 2008. My hubby had recently passed away, and this was a way for me to keep my mind busy and hang in there.
Throughout these past six years, I have met and made friends with some of the most awesome folks, and even got to meet a couple of you in person. During these same years, I've learned so much about scrapbooking and designing, and digital art. I've also grown a bit with my photography, and been able to share ideas with so many of you. I've definitely been blessed.
Yesterday, Deanne and Jasmine went to Connecticut for a weekend competition in drama and musical arts. I just have to share with you an awesome photo and to say that I am so proud of our Jazzy Girl. In this photo, she and her group are performing Bohemian Rhapsody. She was only in one number yesterday, but she and her group took first place and a platinum trophy. (the hightest one you can get) in their musical theatre category.
They were also nominated for a broadway star but did not get it. However, another group from her theatre did get it along with a first and platinum. Both mother and daughter are having a great weekend. Congratulations Jazzy, I love you and I'm very proud of you. (That's our Jazzy, third girl from right, back row)
Yesterday we had a mixed bag of weather here in our little part of New England. Early in the morning, it looked a bit gray, but upon looking out the window I found it was pouring rain. Lots and lots of puddles every where. "Oh well," I said to one of the dwarfs, "at least it is better than snow." I should have kept quiet because in just a short time there was lots and lots of snow falling from the skies.
It was coming down at a pretty good clip, and before you knew it, everything in the yard was completely covered with white stuff. The flakes were big and wet. Here's a few photos to show how quickly the snow was building up on my car. These photos were taken just a few minutes apart. The last time I looked out later in the afternoon, there was at least six inches of snow on the ground by my car.
Well, that's my news for this morning. I do have a new photo of my little Pogo, but I shall save that for tomorrow. So, till then, Y'all be safe and have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
