Season to Season

Not all taken in the exact same spot, but pretty darn close!  Those are the south view of the mountains from the farm.  I love to see the difference in the view from season to season.  I think they make for a wonderful view, no matter what season we are in.

Hope you are having a great week.

The Life

The sun can still be reasonably warm, when it is shining, even when the weather is cold.  At least the cats think so.

I am back down in Jersey for the week.  Working on getting used to using quickbooks.  I bought a workbook that I can learn with.  It is helping a lot.  Now if I can remember what I learned long enough to apply it to my own business version of quickbooks.

Not a whole lot going on.  Just trying to get through the winter and getting ready for tax time.  Yuck, not one of my favorite things to do.  Once I get done with quickbooks, I have to get all my data into it for the weaving and the farm.  I will be pretty busy for the next couple of weeks.

The last time I came down to NJ, I rode with the hubby and we saw a car upside down on the guardrails, and this time, when we came down, we saw a SUV that was on fire!  I told him that I don't think that is a good omen!  I think I better stay home the next time he suggest going with him ;-)  

Hope you are having a great week.

Almost done

This is a better picture of what the blanket will look like when it comes off the loom.  It does mute the blues, but it will still be very pretty.  I think my dad will love it.  I still don't know if I will do the second one the same or not.  Still debating.

Snowed this morning, it was fluffy and then, the wind had to pick up and make it blow all over.  That makes for very nasty driving conditions on our road.  That is how the daughter wrecked her car, the snow drifted over the road.  I had to drive her to work this afternoon.  Went to the chiropractors and I almost drove the car!  I am glad that I decided to take the truck, when we headed home from getting grocery's the roads where covered and blowing.  You had a heck of a time seeing the road!  Welcome to the northeast!

Hope you have a great weekend.

I would not of wanted to be the chicken that laid this egg!

Went today and picked my ring up from the jeweler, because I had it made bigger.  I go get my hair done and get home to notice that it is missing a small diamond on the side!  Needless to say, I was not a happy camper.   I trust this jeweler, so I am sure they will make it right with no problems.

Was a reasonable nice day.  The sun was shining and no wind.  So, even though it was only in the twenties it wasn't too bad of a day.

Have a great evening.

 The ice icicles won't  be melting anytime soon.  The deep freeze is back starting tomorrow.
 I was hoping the picture would show the sparkles on the snow.  Maybe if you click and make it bigger, you will be able to see them.
 Coming out of the barn from weaving, I had to take this picture of the sun below the horizon.  Sure makes you cold just looking at it.

Hope you are having a good week.

More snow.

This is pretty much what it has been doing for most of the day.  We didn't get a lot in accumulation but still a nuisance.   It hasn't been quite as cold the last couple of days as it has been.  We are supposed to get cold again then back up close to the thirties this weekend.

Not much going on.  The daughter went and looked at a few suv's to buy this weekend and picked one out.  It is 4 wheel drive and that is going to be good for the winter months.  If you are going to live in the north it is always good to have 4 wheel drive if possible.  Her car was ready to be replaced.  Never is it a good thing to wreck your car even if you do need a new one ;-)

Hope you have a great week.

What a day.....

It is running like the guys wanted it too.   Now they are in the process of getting another to play with.  Then the next thing is getting a trailer to haul them on to do shows this summer.

It has been one heck of a day.  First, had to have dish network come out and fix our dish.  Then the daughter was in a car accident.  She came out of it fine, but the car wasn't so lucky. The roads get pretty bad when the snow blows all over the road and for the amount of state taxes we pay, you would think that our roads would be clear!   She has had a rough week.. I told her it was a good thing she is still living at home.   I feel bad for some of these college students that can't seem to find decent jobs in their career fields.

I have been making bread for the week.  I go through 4 loaves a week.  We usually end up giving one loaf away and the hubby takes one with him when he goes to work for the week.

Have a great weekend.
