The Weather Outside

We've actually been inundated with rain--and then ice when the temperature drops. Not a fun drive. And the driveway isn't much fun either! The other day I needed my 4-wheel drive to get up my brother's drive and, when I tried to activate it, nothing happened. So I parked at the end of the drive and walked in. Then I tried several more times under other circumstances and still no luck. I finally figured out that it was not hooked up! Apparently when I had the engine replaced in April, the mechanics never reattached it...and I didn't need it until now, so never discovered it...until I needed it. So verrrrrry early tomorrow morning I will be at the shop to have it fixed. I feel absolutely naked without my 4-wheel drive!

These are actually pictures from last year...or maybe the year before. Anyway, I thought it would be a good reminder of what we could be having!

I'm still in favor of calling a moratorium on gift-giving. A couple more friends have boarded my bandwagon and you can feel the stress level lessening each time we agree. There's still time for you to do this with your family and friends--or make the suggestion for next year!

Green Thumb for Everyone applique block of the month classes tomorrow at Calico Gals. Only four more teaching days for 2009--the year sure has flown. And, for those of you keeping track, I've almost doubled my blogging in 2009!

Night, night!



  1. Hello again! I hadn't been keeping track, but "doubled' is GOOD! I hope that they fix your four wheel drive without any problems, and that it doesn't cost an arm and a leg. You have four more teaching days and I have eight more school days before Christmas. Oh yes, we're counting! Big Hugs, Jay

  2. Sharon,
    The light display is beautiful but what about the picture above it? Is it a painting? Is it stitched? There must be a story about those women.

    Happy holidays!



Don't be shy! Leave me a's so lonely without hearing from you!
