Yes Virginia....


it IS January! After having 65 degree temperatures here in Northern Virginia on Tuesday, to wake up to this today was a bit of a shocker - LOL! It had been extremely cold out - around 20. And they said we would get a "little" snow in our area. Well, it was snowing when I got up this morning, and it is still coming down. We've shoveled the driveway twice - and cleaned off the deck three times, and they are just about covered again! We forged out, however, and ran some errands - got gas, went to Wal Mart - went bulk grocery shopping. And then stopped for a late lunch at Olive Garden - which was quite empty - ha! Our meal was warm and yummy - and then we started the long slow trudge home on the snow covered slippery highways.... It felt soooo good to be back in the house - comfy and warm!

We actually have snow where we live, but it stopped after 2". But at least we get to experience a real winter this year. The Olive Garden lunch sounds fun and yummy! Stay warm!

Lucky you! Enjoy the snow. :) Perfect weather to sit in and stitch.

The weather that you're getting in your area is just blowing me away! Isn't the second bout of snow that you've had this year? And here in Michigan we've gotten just about nothing. Obviously winter decided to take a holiday down in the southern states this year!

That sounds like a good day. I know most people don't like the snow, but I really do. I hate driving in it because of everyone else, but I love to sit inside and look at it or to go sled riding. I am the same way I love to get cozy at home.
