Snow Day

It has been snowing since last night.  Daughter and I have been out snow blowing once today and of course since the roads are bad I had to run to the store to get some more cold medicine we ran out and I couldn't think to do it yesterday before the storm hit.  NOPE I had to wait until the storm hit and the roads are really bad.  The city hasn't been out to plow or salt/sand yet today.  Must be waiting for the storm to subside which it won't do until sometime tonight.  Its been snowing since early morning and we will end up with at least 7 to 8 inches.  The Winds are blowing terrible and it feels much colder than it really is.  So we will be out to snow blow again later tonight.  The beagle is enjoying the snow and running in it the jack russel not so much.  Hes shorter and is trudging through the snow whereas the beagle is taller and longer legged so he doesn't have issues with the snow build up.

I have been crocheting and doing some cross stitching today.  The tree is up and lights are outside in the new house we don't have nearly the room for all of our decorations that we use to have in the old house.  So we have lots of stuff still packed away.  I need to sort though all this stuff and perhaps give away more since we don't have room for it.  I miss the fireplace mantel that held lots of the Christmas stuff and the huge entertainment center that we use to have which also held lots of the decorations.  But this house being smaller is more affordable for us to heat etc.

Making Christmas cookies tomorrow got the apricots to cook the filling since I had to go out.  Pictures of work coming up soon.
