Snowy weekend & give-away.....

There's still time to join the give-away.  You have until midnight tonight & I'll draw tomorrow morning.

It snowed AGAIN on Friday night so lots of fresh snow .  The g'kids were with me from Friday afternoon to Sat. afternoon so on Sat. we pulled on the boots and all the "stuff" one has to put on in this weather.  We shoveled, fed the birds, made forts, slid down the hill and various other winter activities that almost did g'ma in.  This was the only outside picture we got -- too difficult taking pictures and entertaining kids.
We made cinnamon crescents out of a can but Phoebe didn't have enough.  We decided to mix up some biscuits and try making our own.  She didn't like them as just biscuit shaped so she decided to roll them like crescents.  Not quite the same but she liked them.

Today I'm going to try to finish my curtains for the front room.  Just need 2 more panels but they seem to be stuck on my table.  Can't seem to get through the pinning stage.  They're lined so I'm hoping they'll keep the room warmer.  Anyway, for sure it will look better.  I've had this Waverly fabric for so long that I don't think it's still available.   I still love it and I have a companion piece as a slipcover on my couch.
It's a cold, wintry Sunday but the sun  is shinning.  After a couple of really cold days this week & another light snow, we're supposed to start warming up.  Think I'll get on Baker's Seeds website and order some arugula seeds so I can stick them in the ground the first sign of spring.  Can't wait!

Watch tomorrow for the winner and you'll have to let me know where to send the lamp & shade. 

Have a good week!

Yum! Arugula sounds so tasty right now. We are definitely missing our own fresh veggies. We can and we freeze but it still isn't fresh. Stuff from the grocery just doesn't do it!
We, too, got more snow last night. Looks like you had some that enjoyed the day! Aren't grands the best? :)
