We are now a Level 3 Snow Emergency.....


that was a lot of shoveling and of course the snow plow plowed us all in at the end of our driveways......over 3 feet deep in at least a 10-15 foot section I had to move


my snowman that stands 3 feet got completely buried after this last snow pass moved through....I tried to shake the snow around him off.....



There is a bush buried under all this snow on the corner


Noah is a little over 4-1/2 feet tall.......he is right about the height of the snow to the right of him

P1150315 at least the mailman will be able to get to my mailbox!

Level 2 snow emergency here so far.......and it is still snowing....

I have not had time to post more about my Vintage Valentine Swap.  I will try to do that later.  I also wanted to share what I received in the DECK OF ME give-a-way prize I won in the drawing at the end of the project.....but I also have not had time.  I PROMISE to get to that soon as you will never believe all the goodies Dianna sent me!  It even made me cry!  BUT a good cry.  SO I will get to those posts and pics soon! 

As far as my Creative Every Day and 12 Secrets of Highly Creative Women projects.....I have been creative in areas of cooking and such recently.....and some other artwork for a job that I cannot share......but I will be posting some other things soon and my thoughts on the last couple of weeks readings in the 12 Secrets project.  I feel bad I am a bit behind, but things have been a bit stressful and chaotic here.

AND now it is snowing!  A LOT!  I love it and am thankful we can stay home safe and sound.....soon I will have to try to get outside in the back and clear off a spot for the birds and give them some food and water.  Anyway....I posted some SNOW photos on my photography blog.....  if you want to check out more.....her are a couple though:


Mr. Snowman, who is about 3 feet tall, would have been buried under the snow, but I could not bring myself to covering up his head!



AND for an update on JOE the dog...the Humane Society did email me back saying they went back out to the house....the dog had food....had a heated water dish....and looked healthy and had been to the vet regularly.  The owners also told them the Humane Society has been out at least 4 times now and they reportedly are working with them to rectify the dog situation.  I emailed back asking about the LIVING conditions which is the whole thing I have been upset about to begin with that they never seem to far no word back on that.  Like telling the owners to clean out the dog poop.....make a safe place for Joe to be outside........etc.  I doubt I ever do hear back on that.

Saturday night I made a lemon meringue pie and homemade wheat bread.....

I have been super busy lately. I sometimes don't know if I am coming or going....but I think I have been doing a lot of both. Saturday I stayed up and made a lemon meringue pie and homemade wheat bread to take to my mom and dad's house for dinner Sunday.....the pie looked better than it tasted. I love lemon meringue pie but this time I used the pudding mix for the filling instead of making my own and it was just plain nasty. The homemade crust and meringue was good....but that was about it! The bread was pretty had sunflower seeds and flaxseed in it as well. VERY good warm with butter. BUT a bit too strong of wheat for my taste and I love wheat.

Been shoveling a lot of snow..moving Christmas stuff out into the garage.....trying to homeschool Noah and work full time too...and be "creative" when I can. I now get to tackle redoing this office area.....that is going to be a project!

More later.....Super Bowl is coming up on Sunday...should be fun to watch!
