First things first. I had to wake Snowflake in her basket to do the choosing for the giveaway.
She heard Jan cooking in the kitchen and ran out to see what was going on. She was much more interested in the piece of onion that had dropped on the floor.
Silas couldn't figure out what all the commotion was about and decided to help Snowflake choose. Silas chose Joyful Quilter. So be sure to send me your snail mail info so that I can mail your package out, just as soon as we can get out.
We got a TON of Snow! This was the view from my front door Saturday morning. (The date & time on the picture is wrong.) One of my friends who lives about 10 minutes away said it was 3 feet. She lost power Friday and just got it back this afternoon. Can you imagine, no power for 2.5 days with a blizzard blowing? Luckily she has a gas fireplace and a gas stove.
Jan & I had a sew in and watched episodes of the Tudors. I finished all the unsewing and have started going fowards again. Yay!
Jan has really been a good sport. Wednesday it snowed, so she was not able to go out to the Smithsonian as she had planned. The snow had cleared enough by evening, so that we were able to go out. We had tickets to the Kennedy Center to see Shear Madness.
I've know Jan longer than anyone. We used to run around together in our 20's. I used to be envious of Jan. She had a small waist and wore hip hugger jeans and little bitty tops. I had a thing for high heel shoes, the kind that people called "f***me shoes". Then she joined the service and saw the world. Mom used to say we were "bad girls". "Girls, just want to have fun".
Here we are at the KenCen. Now, we are fumpy old ladies wearing sensible shoes.
When I was a teen, I used to go to a friends house and we would close the drapes and listen to rock & roll. We thought we were really doing something scandalous! Is that silly or what.
Jan is supposed to leave Wed but we have more snow predicted!
Leave a message, say hello and your name will be entered in the drawing. Snowflake has fallen down on the job today, but one of the Mainers will be up to the task.
