Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow. It Did!

February 18, 2018

Good morning.  During the night, I could hear the plows going up and down the street, but I didn't bother to look outside to see how much snow we were getting.  This morning I looked and we got quite a lot.  Five to eight inches had been forecast and I think we got all eight inches.  However, it probably won't last very long because it's not cold outside.  And, this week we are supposed to see a couple of days with temps that hit sixty.  Woo Hoo.

Well, last night I feel asleep super early, and then I was up at 11:30 for the night.  After feeding my hungry little fellow, I decided to see how much I could get done before falling asleep again.  I guess I did pretty good because I didn't go back to bed until 5 a.m.

I started out by paying a couple bills, and then I needed to print out my travel itinerary.  While printing the itinerary, I came across a couple of items on my desk that caught my interest.  One was some fascinating information about my ancestors while they were in Holland so I put this in an envelope to mail to my friend Kyra.  I thought she might be interested. 

While I was at my desk PC, I opened some of my music files.  Of course, I had to listen to quite a few of the songs.  Afterwards, I checked out a few of my favorite scrap designers and picked up a few more scrap kits. 

By the time I finished playing on the computer and shut it off, I looked down and voila!  What do I see but my new carry on bag that I bought last year while I was in Florida.  Then a bell went off, and I knew where my missing small laptop was hiding.  Yup!  Yup!  I looked inside the bag and there was my little laptop, it's mouse and it's charging cord.  This is good because I really didn't want to have to bring my regular laptop with me on vacation.  Today I will check it out to make sure it's okay.

Yesterday afternoon I spent a couple hours making new quick pages.  This is just in case I don't get a chance to do this when I'm in Florida.  Then I set up my new envelope "Travel Papers & Information."  This is where I keep all our important stuff for the trip.  Otherwise, I'd probably lose most of it.  I'm an expert at misplacing things.  Especially if I've put something away for safe keeping.  No one will ever find it!!  (not even me!)

Getting new glasses will have to wait until after I get back home from vacation.  At that time, I'll have to make them and the taxes my top priority projects.  I don't really need the new glasses, but the ones I'm wearing are really old and getting a bit fragile. 

Joe has already been outside this morning, and shoveled and "snow blowed" all the snow out of the driveway and parking area.  He even cleaned off my car and my steps.  It looks pretty good out there now.  And, the sun is shining.  What a beautiful day!!

I do have a new quick page for you today.  This is another of my "nature" themed pages.  I hope you can use it. 

Here is your download link:

I think that's enough of my babble.  Now I think I'll get a fresh bottle of cold water and do a bit of blog reading.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have an awesome day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Hi Edna,
Your QP's are getting prettier and prettier each time. I just love the Nature ones that your doing. All are gorgeous but I really love nature.

I am so glad that you found your little laptop. It will be easier traveling for you. I am glad that you will take it as your going to be busy giving me some lessons!!

It was nice of Joe to help shovel and blow the snow. That is really a lot, but glad that it will not stick around for too long. I know how treacherous that it can be. I hear that the west is really in for it. My friend Pasty is dealing with high winds and sand storms in the California desert.

I have been having family time with my kids today. Now I am off to spend some time with Jonathan. We are going to sit down and watch a movie. Have an awesome day!!! xxx Hugs, Beth
