February 9, 2013


Yesterday was all about the snow! This is how the day started and it never let up, not a little, not for a moment.  It was actually incredibly beautiful and outside got incredibly quiet, though I know I can say all this because I was able to stay indoors and look at it from my windows and doors. Though, of course, Justin had to get out into it! He really enjoyed going for a walk through our 'hood in the snow!


Snow Day! When I woke up early it was snowing. Then I made tea it was still snowing. Later I made lunch.... it was still snowing! When I went to get the mail... still snowing! It did *not* let up all day. What a crazy one. I'm so glad I didn't have to go outside in this crazy weather, they are saying it's the biggest storm since 2000 (when the army came in) and I believe it.


Yay! My box of treasures from Jamie arrived yesterday! I love that I was greeting with this fabulous photo of us Jamie. Totally made my day and as soon as I saw the beautiful photograph of spices on the box, I knew it was from you. I also wanted to say that those gifts you got Mom of us almost brought tears to my eyes. It's so us. Thanks for brightening my day in so many ways.

LOL, Shannon, I love the way you tell the story of the snow day. That's exactly what it was like.

Suzie, YAY for presents! I'm so glad that you liked everything and that I was able to bring a smile to your day.

Weren't those stickers amazing? As soon as I saw them I knew that I had to get them for Mom. I'm glad they touched you too. ((hugs))

I love seeing the snow-covered roof tops! And it looks like it finally let up although there is still lots of snow out there. I can't believe Justin went out in it - crazy man!

And YAY for getting birthday treats Suzie, that is so delightful! I'm glad you got to see the stickers for Mom too. YAY for presents!! Now that's a good arrival over snow, any day!

Oh that looks very familiar to me, all that snow! We're getting snow non-stop until tomorrow aft and we're almost already snowed in.

Absolutely Jamie, was a total joy! Yes, love those stickers, meant so much to me too, they really do say "us" which is awesome.

I saw the traffic in Toronto on the news, man, no one was getting anywhere yesterday. Guess we're lucky it's happening on the weekend.
