SNOW DAY!


Waaay down here in the south we don’t know what to do when it snows. Some businesses don’t open, schools stay closed, shopping is done ahead of the of the inclimate weather. All that because southerners typically don’t know how to drive on ice or snow. It is fairly foreign to us. The novelty of it wears off in a couple of hours after the white stuff blankets our still green grass and blooming sasanquas. I have to admit it is a pretty sight, but trust me, after a couple of days being stuck in the house, I’m ready for a few degrees of warmth outside. I’m one of those chickens who prefers to stay inside rather than brave a wind that bites. “I’d druther” a more gentle sweet smelling breeze and the warmth of a southern sun.

So, what to do while I’m stuck in the house? Well, I had a mind to get into making rosaries. I’ve been slacking off lately and need to catch up. But, guess what? I don’t have enough wire on hand to do much with. It stinks, because I’m NOT going to town. I had to come up with a new plan.

I decided to put together all the components to make rosaries, store them in the appropriate color organza bag until I can renew my wire stash to finish them. I’ll be ready.

So far I have put together kits for 12 rosaries, 18 car rosaries, and 8 baby baptism rosaries!

I’m tickled to pieces to get all organized and such. I was able to use some of my new components, some beautiful pieces I picked up in south Louisiana.

It is supposed to be in the 50’s. I can’t wait.

One thought on “SNOW DAY!

  1. Don’t feel bad about not knowing how to drive in the snow people in the beautiful PNW don’t know how to drive in it either. But I had to laugh when you said you don’t like the biting wind – because that is what we have been dealing with lately but it helped blow away the fog. We have had a very mild winter – very little rain (which has been nice) which means unfortunately very little snow in the mountains so unless this turns around we won’t have a lot of water this summer. This week-end has been awesome little wind and a lot of sun but the rain is on its way so I am trying to enjoy the nice weather which probable means I should get off the computer and go for a walk. The only problem is that I have lost a lot of my insulation (better known as FAT) so I get cold a lot faster and it is only 45 degrees outside. I use to think that was warm!!!

    Thanks for sharing your life with us. Love you!!!
