This has been a crazy 10 days.  Sometimes it seems like everything that could go wrong, does.  Money is tight with us on a good day. On a bad day it gets right down scary.  Projects we thought would ease the $$ problems fell through.  All of which leads to depression.  The problem with depression is it paralizes the mind.  It is like novacaine.  You can't think, therefore you can't make anything happen.  I just wanted to let you all know we are still here, hanging on by the bare teeth. I can't even get into my ETSY accounts.  They changed the sign on screen and the card I have for the sign on and password is hiding from me.  I managed to get Rose cottage up, but I am still having problems with Fabric's 'N Stuff and Southern Gothic Whimsy.  Oh well.  I am even having problems with Farmville (one of the games I play) on facebook.  It just doesn't end. 
I hope everyone has a nice weekend. 
God Bless You,

Well to paraphrase an old song ~ Snow flakes keep falling on my head.  My little neck of the woods finally caught up with the rest of the world.  We have snow falling.  Right outside my back door !!! Oh my gosh it is really snowing.  Right on time. Exactly as the weathermen ( and women) said it would.  Give the folks a hand.  They got it right this time.  Right now there isn't ice out there.  Well not yet.  Part of this is melting ~~ But not all of it.  Big ole fluffy flakes.  Finally.  While the rest of the world has been getting snow since Christmas ( and I mean as close as 10 MILES from us), we haven't gotten nary a flake ~ just ICE.  Here are pictures as of 7:30PM CST in central Alabama halfway between Montevallo and Alabaster.
 You can even see the flakes without enlarging the picture.  I told you all something like this would happen when my sister-in-law Mary Eliz. got here from Alaska.
She always brings crazy weather with her.  I can hear her now saying "You have more snow than Alaska does" !!!!
The day she flew in it was colder here than it was in Wasilla Ak.  They really have not had much snow this year and what has fallen has been melting rather fast with weird warm up's they have had.  Probably means that when it should be getting warm there in May and June it will probably be snowing.  Have to just wait and see. 
Til my next post with more pics.
May God bless you.

Well, here we go again.  Sunday Don was walking around in the yard in Bermuda shorts and today we have ice on the deck and no one is going out the door.  Thank goodness I had the get up and go to go to the grocery store this morning early instead of waiting til lunch time to do it.  Didn't have to get much, mainly Advil and toilet paper, but I would have been hurting without it.  And news bullentin here, my sister in law, Mary, from Alaska is flying in Saturday (that is if her connecting airports in Minn. and Atlanta are open).  I can promise you that we will have weird weather while she is here.  One winter when she lived in north Alabama, every time she came down between Christmas and Easter it snowed.  Didn't matter what the weatherman said it would do, it snowed.  By the third visit and I got up early that morning and looked out and guess what?? snow on the ground, I called her mom to find out what time she got there.  It was supposed to be sunny and WARM that day and low and behold the snow didn't melt. Of course, in the summer time it usually means hurricanes and tropical storms.  The first date she had with my brother we had 4 tornadoes hit the area.  Should have known then what we were in for.  I love her to death and wouldn't trade her for anybody, but she does have this weather thing. Oh, by the way yesterday was their 37th wedding annivesary.  That day (the day they got married) was sunny and 70 F and we were wearing high neck, long sleeve blue velvet bridesmaid dresses.  I nearly melted.  In a pudddle.
I will keep you posted about the weather and Mary's visit.
God bless us all.
