This is what it looks like out my front door this morning. They are calling for a major winter storm from last night through tomorrow morning. When I woke up this morning, I thought maybe the weather man was wrong because the road was clear and it seemed to be not so bad.. However, in the last few hours weve had freezing rain and sleet an now the snow is coming. I'm hoping the county has to shut down tomorrow so I dont have to go to work! I so hate driving in the snow! Were supposed to have blizzard like conditions at times. such fun!!

I prepared well for the storm though. I went grocery shopping Friday right after work, and then to get a few things at walmart. Then yesterday Little TOny (yay! my son is graduated and home from Arizona!!!!) and I went shopping all day and into the night. We got a lot done.. but I still have quite a bit to do this week. I also still have 4 more bears to make and 2 to finish up today. I'll post pics later of the order that I'm finishing today. I also have to make a miniature horse before Christmas eve!

So I've done a little more unnecessary decorating this morning.. put up two more garlands, and some more lights.. put greens and berries around the candles in the fireplace and hung the stockings (with care, of course!)

Now, I need to decide which to make for dinner, lasagna or homemade soup and bread (in the bread machine). I think I'm leaning towards the soup and bread...

.... Its quite a while later since I started writing this entry, since then , Both Jennifer and Tony have gotten their cars stuck in the snow! I'm not going no where!!
And lookie here.. My kitties go outside to go potty.. I hate litter boxes! they hate snow! he's done doing his business and ready to come back in!
Doesnt he look a bit desparate?

First of all - I want to see the little horse that you are making! Second of all - pass a cup of soup over here...(as if I need to eat any thing else the rest of the year!) and last but not least - stay safe and warm!
