Oh, The Weather Outside Is Frightful

January 20, 2019

Good morning.  Hope you're not dealing with the nasty stuff that Harper is dumping everywhere.  It snowed here most of the night, then sometime during the night it all changed over to rain.  So this morning we can't use the snow blower.  All the wet snow has to be shoveled. 

It's quite a sloppy mess outside.  Joe has been outside for about an hour an a half trying to shovel the wet snow out of the middle of the driveway and away from the stairs.  Meanwhile, the rain is coming down and making it rather uncomfortable for him.  To make matters worse, we've discovered that we don't have any ice melt.  So maybe if one of the guys goes out today, they will pick up a few bags of it for me. 

Temps are 32F degrees at the moment, but tonight they will go down to 4F degrees.  Tomorrow's high is supposed  to be 5F degrees.  Yup, there will be ice everywhere!  Not a good day for anyone to be out on the roads.

Let me show you what I was up to yesterday.  I kept thinking about that memory wire that I bought recently, so I dug out a lot of beads to see what I could make.  I made four bracelets, although they are not finished.  I couldn't find my round pliers, so I could not finish off the ends.  I went online and ordered a new pair of the pliers. 

Meanwhile, I took some photos of the bracelets as they are now.  I'm thinking I'll pack up the wire and some beads and take it to Florida so that we can all make bracelets together.  (me, Beth and Audrey) Here are the four bracelets I've already made.  I've taken a close up of each one so that you can see the beads better.

I'll have to go through my bead stash to see what color combinations I have that I can pack up for vacation.  I'll be taking one or two yarn projects too.  I like to have things handy to keep my hands busy.

Today I have another new quick page for you.  This one is quite appropriate for the weather this weekend.  See the fun that the wildlife are having, playing in the snow and ice.

Here is your download link:

This afternoon, I want to work on my laptop for a while and make a few more new quick pages.  I also want to make up a big pot of pasta and meat sauce.  I want to make sure that we have meals prepared for a couple of days just in case we lose the power.  I have plenty of bread, peanut butter, jelly, lunch meat, canned soups, etc.  I already cooked up two days hamburgers for Pogo, so he's all set too. 

Now I want to do a bit of blog reading before starting the meat sauce.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.  Stay warm and safe! 

Hugs, Edna B.

Good morning. we are at 36 degrees this morning which is cold for us. I wouldn't want to be in your town. If I was I would be like a bear...hibernate til Spring. I haven't been anywhere in 2 weeks here. I was planning on going to the Grocery store today but I think I will stay in a few more days. I keep lots of food in my 3 freezers. I was beginning to catch a very bad cold with fever also. I love those bracelets. They look better than those you buy at the store. Very good quality. Stay warm and Keep Pogo under his blankets. Have a very blessed Sunday.

You really got hit with the storm. I woke up to rain and by this afternoon it had stopped and all the wetness had dried up. No snow at all. And it looks as if there won't be any ice either. But that cold weather is sure here. We will be a little warmer than you. 8* tonight and 15* tomorrow.

I love those bracelets you made. They are just gorgeous.
