It really snowed!

We actually got some real snow. It hasn't really snowed here since 2002. Last year, they closed schools because of a big snowstorm that never came. The kids stayed home on a sunny day. lol So this time, I ignored the weather and they were actually right. I woke up this morning to lots of snow and it is still snowing. Of course Blockbuster is open, so I had to take my daughter to work. I slid through a couple of stoplights but it wasn't too bad. They haven't cleared the roads at all. Blockbuster is next door to Food Lion and they were packed! Blockbuster is closing at 6, so hopefully it won't be too bad picking her up. I don't want to be on a dark, icy road. Today I am going to work on my quilt block. I joined a block of the month at the quilt shop. I need to finish January's block so I get February's next week. Then I am going to get busy making some Annies to put on my site and for the fall shows. I am going to be prepared this year.

Appomattox, Va

Please keep Appomattox, Va in your prayers. It is such a beautiful place. I have family there and it has always been my dream to move them when hubby retires. Everyone knows each other and it is a great community. Eight people were killed there yesterday. It happened right down the street from my aunt's house and they are all devastated. My thoughts and prayers are with them.

Brrr it's so cold!

I really hate cold weather. Last month is was so nice and now I am freezing. It is in the 20's. I know some people would love to have it that warm. lol I love sunny 70's weather. I have gotten back to crafting. I made a couple of Valentine items. I would love to show them, but they are for some swaps and I don't want to spoil the surprise! I started my mouse for the Mouse swap. I was almost done, then decide I didn't like the head. So now it has no head! Don't worry Sandy, it will have a head when you get it. lol
Hubby is doing so much better. He is back at work and now I can finally get this house clean again. But I'd rather be doing other things. I had the house really clean when he came home from the hospital but haven't gotten much done since he got home because he is always in the living room. So today it is sparkling clean. I got the Christmas decorations down yesterday. I had so much help from the cats!
