That is the only word for it. I went to bed last night to pretty clear skies, and I woke this morning to 10+ inches of new snow on the ground!!! It will be a white Christmas for sure. We are expected to get blasted again on Christmas Eve.Charlotte stuck her ruler in the snow on the patio table....it measures 10.5 inches!! You can see the inch and 1/2 sticking up out of the snow.Zach played Math Blasters (a treat for acing his math test this morning), but has since bundled up and is outside playing in the white stuff!I had a nice visit from the mailman yesterday. Sweet Donetta sent me a set of beautiful earrings, which she created herself! They are just gorgeous! Thank You Donetta! You are such an inspiration to me! I owe Donetta a PIF gift and have been working to get it to her. I am hopeful she will get it before the end of the year!I also received a pretty package from Cheryl.Inside were 3 wonderful dishcloths, made by Cheryl (I LOVE her dishcloths!), a set of note cards with photos by her daughter Dani, (the girl has talent!), and some kleenex holders (which my kids snatched up!) Thank You, Cheryl. Your friendship has been the most amazing gift of all!I was able to get all my holiday sewing done and even put my sewing room back in order. It was so neat and clean that the closet stood out like a sore thumb!In no time I had it all organized and cleaned out.Now I am ready for a new year of sewing. Those 3 boxes are full of scraps and strips, ready to cut for my log cabin quilt, plus I am doing a project with Winona....Harvest Sky, by Aunt Em's Quilts. I am excited for a new year of quilt making. Along with the 2 new quilts, I plan to finish up some UFO's hanging around here.
I just have to mention one more time how much I enjoyed Biggest Loser! The new season starts on the 6th of January. If you do not watch it, take a look at this....the winner lost 110 pounds! She went from this.....to this..... And she was such a nice girl. Now you might be saying, "But she is so young and weight is easier to lose when you are young." That is true, but look at her MOTHER.....I get so inspired by weight loss shows...wonder why??
Now I mentioned that Michelle (the winner) was a nice girl. What does that have to do with anything? Well there were a few not-so-nice people on the show. One of them was Heba (though she was nicer than the wicked one), and Heba was the biggest girl to start out. In fact she lost the most percentage of body weight than anyone and would have won, but America had a hand in voting her out. Still you gotta see her transformation....from this....to this....Maybe she will be nicer now that she does not have to battle the scale! We can only hope! Ok, so I will stop blabbing about Biggest Loser....until January!
