Finally, that 4 letter word. And we had enough to close the school. Snow Day! Hopefully we can get outside before the rain comes and washes it away. Off I go to play and shovel.

Have a good day!

It's that time again to hop on the train. Lisa is our wonderful host for the One World-One Heart event. It is a blog-wide giveaway event. The original idea behind this was to bring bloggers together from around the world who may never ordinarily meet. It closes the gap of the blog community and enables us to interact, discover new and wonderful people, and in the process possibly win a prize or many prizes along the way. Last year I participated and made some wonderful friends. This year, the participants are way over 500 already!
Because of all the participants. Instead of one prize, I will be having 3 prizes!
Prize #1 will be......a pattern for a table runner. And of course some sweets to help you work on it.

Prize #2 will be......

A pattern for a "Winter Wonderland" wall hanging. Plus some sweets.

Prize #3.........

A pattern for a beautiful "Flowering Vines" quilt. Plus, don't forget the candy!

To enter, all you need to do is leave a comment on this post. Everyone is welcome to enter, just be sure your comment takes me back to your blog. If you are not a blogger, than make sure to leave me your email address so I can contact you. On February 13th I will draw the winners.

Good Luck !!

Brrrrr! It's cold outside. Bundle up and make sure your hat and mittens are on. We are expecting some snow. Yeah! Maybe the little one will be able to use that snowball maker. lol Gosh, whatever happened to just putting a ball together and throwing?? Pick it up and pack it. Did you see the igloo maker ? We dug a hole in a mound of snow. What about those nice sleds, some are just beautiful? I remember having a Flyer, or sometimes used that brown box. We were outside all day. Didn't care how wet our gloves were. Didn't care that you we were cold to the bone. The best part was the hot chocolate when we came in. MMMM! Gee, life was good.

Stay Warm!

Finally getting back onto this computer after it being in the shop for a couple of weeks. Last Christmas the same thing. Thankfully, its up and working. While I didn't have it, got much needed work done around the house. You can say, I cleaned out 2008 and 2009 is looking good. Scrubbed, scoured and cleaned from top to bottom. Figured, once I got the computer back, I wouldn't be doing anything around the house. Does that happen to you? Sometimes I get glued to this machine.

I received some ornaments this week. One was postmarked 12/14. I have one that went out overseas before Christmas and still hasn't gotten there. You pay so much for what. Its the luck of the draw, maybe it gets there, maybe it doesn't. Last year, the in-law Christmas packages didn't arrive till Feb. They didn't put any tracking or insurance, who knows where they were.

One of the packages I received was from Andie. My snowman swap partner. What a wonderful package she sent. She made the sign herself from a tile. Very nice! My son took the book and the snowman blanket. Says he wont give them up. And we've been enjoying the different teas. Thank so much Andie, it was a pleasure to swap with you.

Off I go to start my day. Suppose to get some snow tomorrow, so need to go food shopping.

Happy New Year! Wishing you all a happy and healthy New Year.
