Neighbor's barn (I love this barn)
Our side yard with birdfeeder
Snow after plowing
Snow on the trees
Our driveway looking over across the street
Our road, nice huh?
Our house surrounded with snow
Miss Martina hogging the bathroom, she's always in there when I have to go!
What's happening - We got a nice little snow storm on Thur. the 25th. I think we got about 10 - 12" total. But then started the blowing, and drifting. School was canceled on Fri. as was everything else in the state of NY. My husband didn't even have to go to work! He spent 2 1/2 hrs. plowing the driveway and sidewalks. Late morning we walked uptown to get a cup of coffee. We talked about how much fun a snowstorm is when you don't have to be anywhere at a certain time and you can just stay home and play. If I had to clean my car off and drive somewhere to go to work, I would have hated this! But since I had nowhere to go and I didn't even have any kids(the parents all stayed home) I really didn't mind it.
American Idol - UUUGGGHHH, I am so mad Tyler went home! I thought he was one of the best singers. OK so here's my pick -
Girls - Crystal, Didi, Katelyn, Lilly
Guys - Lee, Casey (Duh!), Michael, Tyler
Lost - OK so now I am more lost than ever! Each show gets me more and more confused! Did we know that Jack had a son? And what's up with Clair, didn't she die? I'm so confused.
Amazing Race - Sad that Grandma and granddaughter had to go home last week and the two "Moms" went home last night. Both groups seemed like very sweet people. My favs - the cowboys! They are definitely the team to beat.
Survivor - Yeah!!! Every show - intense, intense, intense! This is deffinately the best and most intense one yet! I have never found myself screaming at the TV so much (except during the short track in the Olympics and Steelers football) Not surprised that Randy went home nor am I upset about it! What I am upset about is that he had the nerve to write down Boston Rob's name!
UGH! Canada beat the US in Hockey! Well I would rather it be Canada than anyone else. It was a good Olympics this year, I really enjoyed it!
Knitting - I have started a sleeveless sweater for myself. It is gorgeous! It is from some of the yarn I got at Fingerlakes Fiber during the big yarn sale. It is silk, and possibly the softest yarn I have ever felt!
Books I have read - "Whistlin' Dixie in a Nor'Easter" by - Lisa Patton
I don't always post the book covers of all the books I read (only on the official book reviews) but... I just love this cover! It is one of my favorites so far. I gave this book a wonderful 5 stars! I loved this book! It was so funny, I had to keep stopping to read out loud to my hubby.
It is about a Southern Belle (from TN) who's husband suddenly decides to buy an Inn in VT! They have never lived up north before, boy are they in for a treat! I don't want to spoil the end but - husband turns creep and Leelee has some decisions to make. NY is right next door to VT so everything she wrote about in this book is true for NY. This book reads very much like a memoir even though it is fiction. I thought the Author - Lisa Patton did a wonderful job! Can't wait to read more from her. I instantly fell in love with the main Character (even though she is a southerner! she is very likable, LOL)
I am sure this is going to be on my top ten list of books for 2010.
I am not giving this book away... yet. But if you would like to borrow it let me know.
Contests - Wow, no new contests! Except my own - scroll down to the previous post to enter my giveaway of Double Trouble by Susan May Warren. I will be announcing a winner next Mon. (March 8th).
