More birthday loot and an extended weekend!

Before I get to the news of the day, I have to share the most fabulous gift that I got yesterday from my Grandmother.  Is this not the most adorable cross-stitch?  I love it.  It already has a home in my dressing room.  I also got two new books from my mom and dad.  Can’t wait to try these recipes, especially the desserts!  And Trigiani is one of my favorite authors.  I’m looking forward to this book.


I also got a package of “teasers” from my bff with a very cryptic note about having to go to Florida this summer to get my real gift as it was too “fragile” to ship?  Hmmmmm.  I have an idea of what it might be, but I’m not absolutely sure.


Now, to the news of the day.  Just take a look at the picture.  This was taken at about 7:00 a.m.


Oh yea!  A snow day.  I am very worried about all the plants that I just planted.  I hope that they don’t all die.  I can’t believe this!  My husband is still trying to get to work in Denver (he’s been on the road for about and hour and has made it all of 30 miles!  Looks like he will be working long hours next week. 

On the bright side…I have the day off.  Woo hoo!  So, plan on seeing some crafty pictures today.  I’m feeling like getting my hands to work and producing something.

  1. Wow, Snow I can’t believe it. Guess I won’t complain about the rain and wind at least it isn’t snow! What the heck happened to Spring?
    Love the cross stitch pic. How cute it is, It really turned out nice with the frame.
    Stay in and stay warm. Happy crafting or perhaps reading, cooking?

  2. Erica, I can’t believe that you got a snow day yesterday. I was complaining that it was so cold, rainy, and windy here, and then I read your message and saw the picture of the snow and decided that I wouldn’t complain the rest of the day. I hope your plants survive, and that you had a great day anyway. Maybe Spring will get here soon. Have a wonderful weekend. Thanks for posting a picture of the cross stitch picture I made you, I wanted Uncle Bill to see it, and he told me last night that he had.
