The snow was a lovely fluffy type that plows and shovels pretty nicely, and squeaks when you walk on it.
Felix, Matthew, and I spent time working on the clean up and we had it almost done by 1pm.
My job is to sweep the cars and move them out of the way for my plow-boy and hubby, Mr. Felix! I sure did have my work cut out for me.
Miss Emma Lynne was our enthusiastic cheerleader! She rarely paused for a photo.
The temperatures climbed way up to 30°F, so break out the bikini's!!!
Years ago, I laughingly named our steeply inclined driveway, "Easy Street."
It always gives me a chuckle to see the State of New Hampshire sign (that I purchased from their corrections department) sticking out of our mammoth snowbanks.
The lower driveway to the shop building is pretty level.
The walk to the mailbox is way too slippery, so I asked Felix to stop his plowtruck and pick up our mail at the mailbox at end of the driveway.
We both roared with laughter later when we opened the mail and I found a small package containing 1½ yards of Kona Snow fabric that I'd ordered from an Ebay seller. Too perfect! So, I can't count how many inches of snow we got today, LOL!
In the mail, I was also thrilled to receive a gift from a friend of the pattern for the quilt, "Trail Mix" by Mabeth Oxenreider. Thank you, Stacey! I've hoped to do it since I received all that gorgeous Civil War fabric from Wendy's giveaway over at The Constant Quilter.
Waiting for the snow to end, I discovered a bag that held my end-scraps of the borders for a quilt that I made last summer that I called, "Twinkler Garden." It was made from Jan Patek's "Crossroads" line from Moda. Gosh, now it seems so weird to see that green grass photo way back when the lawn needed mowing!
I hopped to it and sewed up a few HST's for my newly started Scrappy Jacob's Ladder blocks.
Soon I had 22 made and pressed.
Maybe I'll do a small lap quilt with them? They are so pretty with that Jo Morton tan!
Not sure yet, so I'll give it some time to cogitate. In the meantime, I'll keep building blocks.
We were blessed to keep our power for the whole storm and I know someone else besides me who was very grateful for that. It would be Miss Tanner on her electrically heated pad out in the garage.
Thank you, Ila, for the gift that keeps on giving to my outdoor kitties! Mr. Tipper had been there, too, but he's camera shy and runs off.
I could go somewhere right now. I'm not going to go, but I could if I wanted to. That's a nice feeling!
