Saturday

It has been teasing us for weeks, flurries here, 1/2 an inch there, but finally we got some real snow. A whopping three inches. To us here in Georgia that is a good snow. It was all gone by mid afternoon, but the kids had a blast. We might be looking at some more wintery stuff in the next couple of days.


While the family was out in the snow, I baked another loaf of bread, caught up on some episodes of TV programs on the computer. If you haven't checked out www.hulu.com please have a look. You might find something free to watch. I also crocheted a couple of more washclothes, and three coasters. Tonight was our church's annual Valentine's Banquet. Grace was asked to be a server. She had a really good time and got $15.00 in tips. We decided to skip the banquet this year and went out for a quiet dinner for two at our favorite Mexican restaurant. Our heat is still out but we are doing just fine using the wood stoves. I have two birthdays for men coming up in the month of March. If anybody out there has any ideas for gifts that I could make or thrift, give me a hollar and let me know. I am trying this year to make all gifts or thrift. Purchasing nothing new if possible.

We finally got snow today too! It was a treat. Glad Grace enjoyed the Valentine's Banquet and you got to have a dinner for two. Sounds wonderful!

How breathtakingly beautiful it looks with the snow all about.

Beautiful pics! We are also in GA and enjoyed the few inches of snow we got. And I also enjoyed the fact that it's already gone. :)

Please don't let my husband ever find that Hulu site...we may never see him again... ;)

Crocheted or knitted slippers or scarves or hats?

How about a coupon book? A batch of homemade cookies of their choice, a day off from chores, a date with mom (or wife), etc.

Men are hard to make gifts for! lol.
