I just heard from Vonna that she received a little Christmas package that I put together for her. I really wish I could have stitched for ALL of my stitching friends, but we all know that time would never allow for that! But, I did get something together for Vonna. Vonna has been a tremendous help to me - really, nothing short of being my right arm for me - with the Neighborhood Round Robins, and I really wanted to show my appreciation to her. And, Vonna has been the sweetest ear and dear friend to me all year long. Thank you Vonna - Merry Christmas, dear friend! (I chose Prairie Schooler as it is very obvious she loves PS as much as she loves LHN!... and it had to be a pinkeep ornament, as nobody loves pinkeeps more than Vonna does!)
And, before I zip off now to start my SBEBB Frosty Friends exchange...
...here is what it looks like outside my front door as of only a few minutes ago... this is about 5 storms' worth of snow, but I think this whole snow thing is getting old already... and winter solstice does not even start until Saturday...
And, you can barely even see my mailbox - near upper center of the photo at the top of my driveway.. can you see my driveway? Mike is out there plowing now... (not in the photo).... the plow almost took the mailbox down today - it always gets knocked off by a plow at least once per winter.
And here is what a portion of my back porch looks like - this gives you a good guage of just how high the snow is!
How did Mike and I cope with this today? Well, since it has been snowing steadily since I drove home from work yesterday afternoon (24 hours ago)... I was not taking it on again today. Tomorrow was supposed to be the start of my holiday break, but if the roads and skies clear enough, I will work for a while tomorrow to make up for today... But, after a trip to the post office and out to breakfast, we went to the movies and saw I Am Legend. Mike likes snow days - you get stores and cinemas and such to yourselves. We were the only ones in the theater for I Am Legend :-)
