I'm wishing, really really wishing for some snow... Let's see, a good Noreaster would do right about now, and say dump about 5 feet of snow here... Yup, that would do it for me!

I don't know if she'll want to drive friday morning in the snow but at least I might get tomorrow off from driving her to work. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!
Your mom is still in my prayers as are you - take care, made! I hope you are having a GREAT DAY, too!!!

Since everyone's ringing in with their forecasts---they're telling us we might see plowable snow again this weekend. Third weekend in a row. xmastidings, this one's for you, if you want to come up and take a load back to Maryland ... the wind we had with it last Sunday should have blown it all the way to you!

As we were slowly moving along with traffic, I noticed two Christmas-style guard figures (not Nutcrackers) standing outside a store. Then, between them there was a wreath on the door that said "Merry Christmas!" Could it be? Then I looked up at the signage and read "Tinseltown." Yes. Ottawa now has a year-round Christmas store! I wanted to exit the bus immediately. Tinseltown was calling my name! I cannot believe that I did not know of this store's existence until yesterday. After doing some research, I have discovered that it opened quite recently (sometime last year). I informed Kim of my discovery and we agreed that we must go very shortly. I think I may need a little Christmas (store) fix.
I envy you your Christmas store!
With all the "war on Christmas" hype, it's nice to know that there's enough Christmas love out there to support year-round Christmas stores, especially recently opened ones.

I want snow too!

We got some sleet this morning but nothing more than rain and chilly for the rest of the day. It's a good day to stay in, get some cleaning done and watch a movie!

Sorry for the delay, but yes, I think you do need to come to Ohio to have a California pizza. I'm sure they aren't as good in CA!


MADE - keeping your Mom in my prayers! I hope they figure out what happened quickly & she has a complete recovery!


Happy Pines Day everyone! What crazy weather we have had this week. Monday I went to the lake, walked the bike path, grilled out for supper & by Tues morning it was so blasted cold & windy you couldn't stand to be outside more than a minute! Bone chilling! Gotta love Ohio! Today is miserably cold too! It has been snowing & blowing off & on all afternoon! Very pretty - from the inside, looking out!

Hope you are all doing great! See you at the Pines!!!!
