Today it's snowing... til Thursday when the temps fall to 1F. The grocery stores were shopped out. Drew said people were in a panic over lack of jalepeno's ! We wanted broccoli.(it was gone too)
Good thing I like to quilt and paint inside. Worry about Drew trying to drive in to work, and happy we moved close to work now.
It's a soft not blowing snow at the minute, drifting down steady and white. Tall Fir trees are already iced, the brown grass accumulating white patches already. Milo is wearing his sweater all the time now, I think the mums are done for as 4 days in the garage is a lot. I'm considering making soup. I opened our halloween candy, different that previous years... this one is full of chewable sweet tarts and lemon heads which smell wonderful from the bowl, but maybe no kids will be out in the extreme cold.
The plumber returned from Florida to fix our kitchen faucet, two leaking outside pipes, two broken (from the washer debacle) toilets, yesterday. He said, just keep your heat on! He fixed frozen pipes for a couple from CA who didn't. We finally have a new, again, washer but I'm afraid to use it but must today... there's a story about that too. The delivery guy, young and inexperienced almost fell down the stairs with the washer.
I think hiding in the house might be a fine idea.
Oh, I got out last week as the last snow storm was finishing up on Thursday, to go to a library comedian event, met a friend from a town way south of there (met in the middle) and after visited Trader Joe's like a normal person. I'm so afraid to drive here I seldom venture out. I remembered all the places I've lived and never felt nervous driving in... but the roads here are not good, and people are VERY aggressive, and the GPS never seems to know where we are, so I stay home a lot.
Hope the wet rainy start to this storm didn't leave a layer of ice under the pretty snow... guess it's about time to walk Milo.
It's nice to not hear the drip drip of the kitchen faucet, but the new one is tall and shiny, cleaner than it'll ever be again. The coffee cooled in our cups quickly this morning and I feel a bit like we're camping out.
I have many library books here at the moment, my diamond dot's Halloween project to start, the halloween quilt ready to quilt, paper to paint on, some old project boxes to sort in the studio, laundry to do, shows on the dvr to watch.
I found a series on Smithsonian channel last night, on the real lives of monarchs, so I could see how Louis the 14th really lived in Versailles. I also found a hilarious and historical show on youtube (BBC) with two comedians (the show is The Supersizers eat...) who show us what people ate in ancient Rome, Mideval times, etc
My book on cd in the studio is engaging and I care about the characters. My night time reading is the next in the tea shop series by Laura Childs, and I have another one waiting in the wings to read.
We have left overs from yesterday's take out, and lots of good food from Trader Joes like apple cider donuts, and turkey meatloaf, and sour cream spinach dip to go with crackers. I plan to roast the sweet potatoes today, purchased last weekend,. as it's a good day to run the oven.
that's the way it is... as I leave you to it, remember be strong
