Snow Day Sew Day

Good morning!

It snowed here Sunday night…finally! I know that the rest of the world is sick sick sick of snow, but we haven’t had any to speak of all winter. And…I’m one of those who likes snow. A lot.

I worked Sunday afternoon appraising a family collection in southeast Kansas. I was a little concerned because the weather folks were predicting a LOT of snow and I was afraid I’d get caught out on nasty roads. All was well, though. The family had the quilts spread out on two big tables for me and we moved through them quickly. The quilts ranged from the 1930s to the 1970s, and all were clean (many unused and unepwashed, so just like brand spanking new). It was a good afternoon!

Things were pretty much shut down around town yesterday. There was ice under the snow so it was a bit messy, and it snowed off and on all morning. All of our plans were cancelled. The roads are better today but it just happens that I have nowhere I have to be. I got up early and took care of laundry and all those other have-to-do things that you can never escape, and have thrown stuff in the Crock-Pot for supper, so I’m off to my workroom for the rest of the day.

The stew I started the other day is still stewing, but I started something new yesterday. This is a crazy, fun time. I am working on a gazillion things all at once and wake up with more ideas in my head every morning. Does that happen to you?

So, for today, I’m off to tackle some ideas! How are you spending today?

    I’ve been playing with paper getting tax work completed among other things in the stacks. CPA this pm and then I can play — hooray for snow days. Finished my arm knitted scarf last night before going to sleep. Would have been finished earlier if I hadn’t kept going to the door to check on the beautiful red fox sleeping on my deck.

      A fox! How interesting. We don’t see too many of those. I’d have watched it too!
