One more gift done last night

Thank You Priscilla!!!



I came home to a nice surprise package on the counter waiting for me, I just couldn't wait until Christmas even though she wrapped it up for me and everything!! I envy the knitters, I have tried and I just don't get it, you have a great talent Priscilla, THANKS again

My drive to work this morning






Yes I took these as I was driving. I know probably not smart considering the roads were slippery but I had to go slow and it kind of kept me occupied rather than thinking I was going to slide all over, plus I had Rays truck, no worries!



Snow day kept me inside painting yesterday...


I cut this shelf out of some scrap wood to look like the one you can buy on line from Viking wood crafts, mine free, theirs probably $25, I have not checked but that's where the book tells you to buy the shelf

These are both from John Sliney books, he's my favorite! I hope the recipient likes him too.

Lots of Baby Molly Fish


I got some more plants and a fake Alligator scull, those alien looking things hanging there on the right are lights for the dark, little spot lights



Steve the fishman came over the other day and said I had a pregnant fish. What??? I said. So I got one of these little net hatch baby holders and put the mama fish in there, and lo and behold I woke up to a whole bunch of babies!!!

Cleanup....


Harley came out to watch, he was a little jittery, there is still ice on the tree's and when it falls, watch out, you can get hit in the head and yes it hurts, both Ray and I got hit, hard hats are required...

This side of the yard is going to take forever, but I think Ray may have hired some help to come today

My favorite tree was not able to be saved and as you can see it was rotten in the middle, I think it was about 25 years old and kind of in a wet part of the yard

He helped for about a total of 5 minutes, whats wrong with Teenagers today?

More of the poor maple

Bye Bye Maple

All the neighbors have dragged sticks to the street, we think the town may come by with chippers

The house that goes with the pond





I tried to snap a picture of the house as Ray drove past, he did stop and let me get out for the pond!

Ice Storm video

Phew, we finally got power...


This is June Shew's pond, I just love her property, Ray took me for a drive yesterday afternoon to look at the mess the storm did

This is our front yard, Ray said he was up all night listening to tree's falling, it sounded like someone was shooting guns off and then a huge crashing noise. I sleep with ear plugs due to his snoring, so I didn't hear a thing.

Another shot of our front yard

The back yard, I lost my favorite tree

Sun setting yesterday afternoon, the clouds were moving in warp speed last night

A road just barely passable

It doesn't look like you could make it but we drove through


Crew's are all over the place trying to restore power to us.

My sister Lois lives right near this pole

My favorite tree is gone :(


This is the road we live on, you couldn't get in or out

A new use for an old rolling pin





I have a magazine with the idea to paint an old rolling pin. I picked it up at a junk shop for about $4 and painted it tonight.


$23 to fill my car last night and I was darn near close to running out of gas when I got there

gas price was $1.58 at food bag if you paid cash, this is at Cumbies and the price is the same cash or credit

Guess what I made in this picture
