Today, the dogs and I took a before breakfast walk. A long one and the first one in a long time. Since the big snow. The sun was shining, temperatures were rising, and things were thawing. It felt good. I was not the only one who felt this way. Honey was having more fun than she would chasing a squirrel. There was a gentleman outside who went out of his way to say good morning and chat about the weather. I'm glad it's over, hopefully, but can't help think fondly on it also. So I leave these as evidence of the time passed when it snowed in a place that doesn't get much snow.
Luckily, the girls arrived the evening before the first snow, so we woke to the dusting and went to breakfast.
There was much snuggling
a project started, the gutting of the bathroom
A Beatles Rockband tour
Difficulties finding a spot, so a spot was made
And more snoozing after all the shovelling.
Snow on the beach.
The girls were able to make their way home safely and we were done, until the next forecast was made.

Shift sleeping and an unmade bed for a week. The National Guard was called into duty and My Handsome Prince worked nights and slept days (while I shovelled)
I alternated my time between sewing, knitting, cooking and shovelling. The Wurm hat I made to keep my head warm and prevent my head from looking lumpy while wearing a hat.
The lounge pants I made from fabric and trim I had. I figured if I was going to stay inside for a week, I'd make some comfy cool pants. Because of the pans of cinnamon rolls and other cooking and baking, I couldn't get my fat arse into them and they became Audrey's, who said they were cute and dorky. Cool, dorky, same thing right?
Use what you have cooking, diced tomatoes, italian sausage, pasta, cheese, and wine, along with the Artisan bread dough in the fridge. It pays to have that dough constantly going in the fridge.
I love almond flavoring and made this cake. Glaze not necessary.
And more snow
By the time storm three hit, forget it. I did not take any photos except this one
