Yeah, it's finally snowing here in good ol' New Hampshire.  I have forgotten what that white stuff was.  Imagine, it was in the 50's yesterday, and the roads were clogged with bikers and motorcycles!  And now, the lawn is blanketed in white. Winter, finally?

Good morning.

Lu Anne, have fun planning and arrainging. You sound so excited. ☺ ☼ ☺

Gmakitty hope you shoulder gets to feeling better. 

Good for your fellow residents on raising those funds. Cancer is a terrible disease.

Janice I know you will have fun with your good friend.

Hopefully I'll actually get some sewing done today. Yesterday I had good intentions of getting in the sewing room but went to the grocery store and made a side trip to the cell phone store. I took the plunge and bought a smart phone. So, of course, was trying to learn a little about it. Thankfully the store was able to transfer the old phones contacts and stuff. He also showed me how to answer it if it actually rang. LOL

Next week I'll be going to my niece's wedding in Cancun, Mexico so don't worry if I don't post then.

Have a happy. ☺☺☺

Happy Friday Ladies!!!! Hope you all have an amazing day. I am hoping to get my sewing area set up this weekend so I can start working on some projects after work during the week. Everything right now is at my MIL house because that is were we do most our sewing but she is moving this weekend and I am going to try to start doing some projects at home. I am excited to get working.

Good Morning

I hope that all is well

With you I am not too

Bad but didn’t have much

Sleep wasn’t tired so reading

Until nearly 2 was tired this

Morning but once awake

At 6 didn’t really go back to sleep

Up just after 7

We been & got the shopping

This morning I had a couple of

Phonecalls to make one was

For my phone/broadband company

They set me a bill which was for

Over £12 more as they didn’t add

The discount I had negotiated

So got it sorted also had to confirm

My MRI scan for next Friday

I hope that I may sort out

What I want to sew I must say

That with my eyes it a bit difficult

As at least with reading I can enlarge

The font or move it but you can’t

When sewing

Well have a Blessed Day

Take care

Hugs Janice
