Pantry Before/After and Sweet Stuff

I accomplished something on my long to do list. 

Pantry Before

Pantry After

I feel so organized now!

I threw out two bags of trash and discovered I had 3 cans of vegetables and four boxes of popcorn.

You can see where my priorities are.

Once I realized what I didn't have, I made a trip to Target.  Michael's is next store so I popped in there first. 
 I found the sweetest valentine rag wreath.

It makes me want to make one or five for other occasions.

I also found the last bag of Halloween candy in the pantry. 
Mom and I tested it out to make sure it was still good.

It was.

Have a sweet day!

Waiting On The Snow

It's raining.

Two days ago it was almost 70 degrees.

We are waiting on the "Arctic Chill" or "Blue Norther" as we call it here.

The greens have been covered with tarps.

In preparation for the snow that is supposed to start around noon.  The temperature has dropped to 33 so I'm expecting to see some snowflakes soon.


Actually I dropped my camera on the kitchen tile this morning and broke part of the flash.  I wanted to see if it still worked.  It does!

While I was testing it out mom spilt her coffee on the Sunday paper. 

We blamed it on the paper boy.

This klutz curse is in our genes.

One time I knocked my glass of water into my dad's dinner plate.

He didn't even blink or say a bad word.

It's that common.

On my first date with Tom at the movies.

I dropped my biggy coke.

He didn't even blink.

He got up and left.

I thought forever.

But he came back with another coke.

We were married 4 months later!


It's Snowing!

Meet my new neighbor Hootie

We're still in the getting to know you stage.
