Another snowy Saturday!!

Hello all! Well, I woke up to yet another snowy Saturday! Winter is just about to wear out it's welcome around here! Come on Spring!!! I haven't been outside of the house since Wednesday and I am about to go stark raving mad!!!!! Hubby is only working half a day today so maybe he will take me out somewhere when he gets home. Although by the looks of these pictures, it might be safer to just stay home!!

This pic is one of the rocking chairs on my front porch. This is snow that has fallen since around Wednesday, I think:

Here's another, wider view of the porch. The bench in the middle was made for me by my uncle. It has a wedding chapel bird house on it and a welcome friends rock plaque on it although you can't see them for all the snow!! LOL!

And finally, a pic of my poor little car that hasn't been out of the driveway all week! We have an incline for a driveway and even though it's snow covered right now, underneath that snow is nothing but ice! The tires on my little purple "gangsta mobile" aren't in the best shape and just won't go up the incline when it's icy!

I don't have much on the agenda for today. I was hoping to get to the library in town to check out a couple of books I've been wanting to read. Doesn't look like that will happen though with all this bad weather. Looks like a good day for crafting, don't you think?? LOL!

Well, that's it for now. Try to stay warm and cozy today!

Until next time. . .



  1. Oh yes definitely a great day for crafting! I understand what you mean about the snow wearing out it's welcome...come on spring!!! We are taking the kids to the movies tonight so it'll be nice to get out for a little bit! I am cleaning & hope to fit in a little crafting today as well. Well enjoy your weekend!

  2. Hi Donna,
    Oh my look at all that snow!!! And to think Ive been griping about our 5"!!! LOL!!
    Winter and snow has worn out its welcome for me. I cant stand COLD!! So yes, Come On Spring!! Give me green grass, flowers, birds chirping, bees a flying, I'll even welcome the dandelions!! :)
    Have fun crafting!! Be safe and warm!!

  3. Great day for crafting! We look just like you Donna and have that ice underneath too that makes it so much harder to get around! Hang in there, you will probably see Spring long before we do! Cindy

  4. I feel the same way...we did go to dinner last night though. A good day to stitch I guess if I can get off this computer:-)
    Have a great day!

  5. Looks like a real good craft day to me Donna! I know I wouldn't want to be out driving in all that snow and ice.. We still have some snow here and there in Oklahoma, but nothing like you're having. We've been having the real cold weather here... It was 8 degrees out this morning.. Gosh, take in the temperature with the wind chill factor, and that would make it be soooo very, very cold! We don't usually have the cold temps that we've been having... Can't wait till spring arrives neither!! I like having the warmer weather a whole bunch more!!

    Have a good one!

  6. Thank you for stopping by my blog, it's great to meet new people, especially with similar interests. The stuff you have made are amazing- I especially love the little sheep and I am so envious of the wooden items your hubby made!! I am working on gameboards this weekend, wow, this is so addictive isn't it? Visit soon, ~Shazy x

  7. I hear you about the weather. I work for a school, so my boys and I were out of school for 3 days this week, due to weather. Our windchills yesterday were -30. Brrr.
    Have a great weekend.
    Stay warm and stay safe.

  8. Stay warm and stitch - good motto for this time of year!

  9. I love the snow but not the bitter cold temps.
    I was hoping to get to the library today too but it didn't happen. Maybe another day.
    Stay warm!

  10. Oh my, look at all that Snow! It's so pretty!!

    Thank's for stopping my blog today.

    Your blog is just fabulous! I've been checking out some of your older posts and tomorrow I am making the potato soup recipe. It sounds great and I have all the ingredients! I have signed up to be a follower and can't wait to see what you're doing next.

    I'm off to see your 2009 posts.........


  11. Brrrs! It looks cold in your neck of the woods. Strangely, I love winter so send the snow my way. I hope you and your sweetie made it out of the driveway and to the library.

    Joyful Blessings!

  12. BBBBRRRRRRRR !!!! Tooo much snow!!!! Stay warm, read a book, relax and .... keep us updating!!!

  13. Hey there, just stopping by to say hello and keep the snow at your house... we have about 2 inches and I really dont care if it snows any more the WHOLE winter (but Im sure that is wishful thinking) Hope you got lots of crafting done.

  14. I feel like you Donna....completely snowed in and loving it though! I have so many things to keep me busy.
