Ice and Wind = Not a good driving combination

Here's my weekly installment of Garden Spot Sampler, the SAL I am doing on Tuesdays with Jo. I was able to stitch a couple of colorful motifs and get a start on the large flower that I have been dying to start since this SAL began :-)

As today's entry title says, ice and wind today - I think it will be icy tomorrow morning too. What a lousy combination - trying not to slide on ice while the wind is gusting at you. That summarizes my commutes today - both to and from work. With "W" having done his State of the Union address tonight, the news is delayed - I am anxious to see what kind of ice is forecasted for tomorrow's drive in to work... Come on Spring!! LOL

I am "and a half today" - my half birthday :-)

Of course, it is New DVD Release Tuesday yet again - a very fun one for us this week, Tim Burton's Corpse Bride

Got this from Amanda's blog:

'A very happy half birthday to you, to you' (sung to the Disney version of Alice in Wonderland).
I wish you well in your travels too. Just when we had some nice weather, old man winter veers his ugly finger our way.
Take care and happy stitching.
