The snow is on it's way . . .

Well according to the National Weather Service, the snow is finally headed to our part of NC! I have had fun looking at everyone's pictures of the snow in their neck of the woods but haven't had any to share myself. They say that it will start tonight around midnight (I will have to take their word for it, cuz I will not be up to see it!). We don't see much snow here so when they say we may see some snow, everyone around here goes CRAZY! They flood the grocery stores and stock up on the essentials, breads, milk, eggs, things like that. The problem is, we only have snow for a few hours, then it melts. We have never been snowed in or came anywhere close to what a lot of you have. I think if you guys came here and seen our little snow, you would laugh at the craziness! I went to pick up a dozen eggs, just because we wanted breakfast for dinner. This lady acted like I had taken her only child! She was so upset that there weren't more eggs. I thought we were going to get into an all out brawl over a dozen eggs! I try to be a nice person but I went home with my eggs. (Kind of mean of me not to offer them to her huh? Oh well!)

This weekend my daughter and I decided to spend the day together. It is strange but as she gets on up in teenage years, she WANTS to hang out with me more! My son had made plans for all day skating at a local indoor skatepark. It is a great place where kids can go skate with their skateboards without having to be out in this weather. We went from noon to 10 pm. My legs would have been jello by then but he's only 12 so it doesn't affect him yet. The hubby decided to go mud bogging. Yes, mud bogging. So my daughter and I spent practically the whole day by ourselves.
We started the day by grabbing some lunch. We rarely ever go eat without the guys joining us! It was a great time to gossip and chat. We then went to Curious Cat which is where I have a booth. Let me just say that I love this place! There are so many great vendors and everyone has their own niche. The gals are always so nice and helpful too! I recently had some things to sell so I needed to update the booth a little and bring in some of my latest goodies. My daughter, Miranda was such a big help. We worked on the booth for a few hours until time to head to the movies. We decided we wanted to go see "Bride Wars". What a great time! There were a lot of her friends there (it seems like she knows everybody) and she didn't seem to be embarressed by hanging out with me! How great was that!
Since it has been so cold, I started working on a few Valentines items for my booth. I made these cute hearts out of red ticking. It seems weird to be working on Valentines and Spring items with the temperatures around 15 degrees! I hope to start on a stitching or two this week also.
I also finished up a new batch of primitive sachets. These have great scents and look so prim!
Well, I am going to go cozy up with a blanket and thumb through some stitchery patterns. I hope you have a great day!

9 friends had to say:

I should go out and take pics of our snow piles. Some are taller than the one story buildings they sit next to. I'm sooo ready for spring!!

Love the hearts and sachets! I've been wanting to make some hearts to put out for Valentines, but I still have my snowmen out because it has been cold and snowy. Maybe if I put them away...warm weather will come. lol...

Love the hearts and sachets too Nicole.

Well, I was in hopes of wakin' up to some snow on the ground, but there ain't even enough out there to call it a dusting. It's still lightly snowing, so we'll see what we get through out the day.

Hope y'all get more than we did..

Have a good day. Hugs, Tammy
