This is what our drive looked like before Todd started the snow blowing at 10pm... an hour and a half later he's still out there! He have a HUGE snow drift in the middle of our yard. I'll have to get pictures of that in the morning when there's light outside.
Despite my dislike of winter, you can find beauty in it. Jack frost has paid us a bit of a visit, leaving artwork on some of our windows.
Now all of you who think this is just wonderful and beautiful all this snow (I know you're southerners!)... those of us who live with it from one year to the next just aren't thrilled by it at all. It means hard work getting our driveways passable and walkways cleared. If you live on or near a main road you may be lucky and your roads will be ploughed. If you don't you'll be lucky not to get stuck. I know I'll have to leave early for work tomorrow, and I'm sure my 20 minute drive will probably be more in the realms of 60 minutes. So far none of the school boards in the city have called a snow day... we probably won't know into the wee hours of the morning, I think my board usually makes that decision between 4:30-5am. Even once a snow day is called I am still supposed to make my way into work or the nearest school in our board... which for me means the school I work at! With Todd clearing out the drive now I can't see why I won't be able to make it into work... just take my time and not worry about being late.
Today I did manage to get that Sens jersey mounted. I have to say it took me several hours, and my hands and especially my thumbs were sore for most of the afternoon. I never did get around to getting my beads into watchmaker cases. After finishing up mounting the jersey I just vegged out with my laptop, reading a few blogs, commenting, and changing the format of my wish list. Previously it was an excel file you could save from my webspace, but I've found out that this doesn't work for everyone. So I started up a second blog with my wish list... there is an entry for each designer then I've listed the design(s) I'd like. This should be more user friendly now... I hope. If anyone has suggestions for improvement be sure to let me know!
This evening during the Survivor finale I finished up the ornament I started late last night, and started a second one.
