I had to switch to the New Google Blogger and, well, I am not so pleased. Matt assures me it must be all in my head-but I can't be disuaded. I think "it" has something against me. I am having a HARD time posting pictures...hard meaning-impossible. What will happen to this blog if I can no longer post pictures, I ask? That will be no fun at all. I might not even bother!
So-here is a boring word post, terribly void of color and visual personality. Ah well. Perhaps tomorrow I will get on "it's" good side.
I should have plenty of opportunity!
The weather gods tell me that there is a winter storm warning starting tomorrow and ending the following evening-where Sleet and Snow will marry, be fruitful and multiply, creating little Hazards. By the end, we should be seeing 6 inches to a FOOT. Argh.
For this reason, as well as another, the children and I headed uptown-AGAIN. Mondays are typically our shopping days (when we don't go to bible study on Wednesdays), but this Monday I had to be doubly sure that we were prepared for being snowed in for a while. Of course, we are in the midst of birthday preparations as well.
Tomorrow, is the big day. Matt will have been given to the world for 30 years tomorrow. That was the OTHER reason we had to head to town...for ONE last present, cake ingredients, and the goodies to make a special birthday dinner. The cake will be the same as it is every year (per Matt's request)...White cake with Peanut Butter frosting. Each year it gets nicer looking though! As for dinner, I think that that will be a surprise! ;-)
The gift that we got for the Papa today is pretty large, and I am anxious to start the GIVING (as Matt, I am sure, is anxious to start the GETTING!) I will probably let him 'open' the one from today, well..TODAY! :-)
It seems I have been 'shopping' a lot, this family has been sick alot, and I have been lazy a lot. These things melded together make a dangerous combination, to be sure. While the open areas of the house are tidy and nice, the rooms that can be hidden behind closed doors have gone by the wayside. FAR off the road and into a cornfield. I think this snow storm is just my motivation to get moving on those things. It will probably take several days before I can be finished.
But on a brighter note-I have not been ENTIRELY lazy...at least, my FINGERS haven't. I have gotten several new crochet squares done for my quilted afghan! I have photos to share, if ever I am able. I am pretty excited. My skirt is all done except for the zipper, Nancy said she would teach me a TRICK to get the zipper right, and so I await her instruction on that one. Lots of little projects in the works, none have yet to come to fruition. What a grand day that will be! :-)
