I learned last year that this is the toughest part of the year here. I'm quite thankful for the new computer distraction... learning new things on this site will help me perservere until spring. Last year I decided I should be scrapbooking and doing all kinds of crafts during these still cold months... and guess what, I have done none of it so far. I do have some skiing to look forward to, though! Our plans for getting to AZ next week are looking very iffy... A bunch of snow predicted for the entire week, we've learned not to drive the motorhome in the snow. Oh, and did I mention that we just discovered a whole bunch of broken water lines in the motorhome? RV guy is working on it now...
Oh! I think we are going to try making your roasted tomato soup as a special at work! I will be sure to name it "Dan's Roasted Tomato Soup". I'm thinking some sort of mini grilled cheese dippers as a side. What do you think? And, do I have your permission to make it at work?
Hi Brenda! I came over to see you. I was getting invitations from some old friends on the photos forum and I just had to join up. Snow here, too. Snow likely all week. Glad to see you're doing o.k.
Well, Dan, I grew up in a rural town outside of Buffalo, NY... winters here are far, far easier than winters there. Mainly because we get a lot of sun. In Buffalo, it is grey from Oct. till April, pretty much. Here, we get on average 246 sunny days, in Buffalo it is about 55 sunny days per year. Yet I will tell you very honestly, snow makes almost everything more difficult. It is very fun to go to the snow to ski and play, it is not as fun living in the snow. Though, I do love the seasons here.
Oh, my goodness! You have got some snow there, Brenda! It is so funny that you grew up in upstate New York because my husband is from Hamilton, N.Y. Santa Fe is our compromise spot. I grew up in Tempe, Arizona. I'm freezing all the time and he is too hot.
LOL! Me too... Tony can't keep up with me, most nights I want a fire in the fireplace and the windows open!
I'm glad you're here, Penny. Is everyone else boycotting because of what happened with Pajarito on DG? I've been invited to the Garden Outlaws, and have visited a bit, but I really like having everyone in one place (or two...).
I'm not very clear on what other people want to do or are doing. I think Dahlianut is here somewhere but I'm not sure where. I'm running around all over the place trying to keep up. I do think it would be fun to have you there but I like seeing you here, too. I think things are beginning to settle down. At least I hope so. I've been spending way too much time on line these days. Tomorrow I'm going to a 3rd grade class play. It is about Noah and the Ark and my friend who is nine years old, has the main part! I'm going to bring a book because I'm there with his parents and will have to be early and stay late. Real life takes precedence sometimes!
