Needed: strong back. (that's more than two foot of snow out the back door)
Needed: big shovel. (that's more than two foot of snow out the front door)
Needed: one horse.
To pull my sleigh...
Another foot of snow came and visited over night -
only a few more inches expected today.
I'm glad I'm working from home!!!
Making up some samples for a class I'm teaching this weekend
at a retreat in south-central Indiana.
That's if I can get to south-central Indiana.
It's only supposed to be a four and a half hour drive.
Another storm front is headed this way for the weekend, so we'll see.
Speaking of driving...Sweetie was involved in a road closure last night. He sat in his vehicle for over 6 hours on a local interstate! He had driven north for work, did his job and headed home. Clear and dry in northern Ohio. But as he got to within an hour or so from home it was white out conditions and LOTS of the white stuff on the ground.
Over 40 cars and semis had spun out and were blocking the highway. Thankfully no one was seriously injured. But over six hours sitting in your vehicle with no forward movement, no food, no drink (which was probably good as there was also no bathroom) and intermittent cell phone service--Boring!!! After enough people realized that they were going no where fast, those that were able started back up the entrance ramp the wrong way and created enough space that Sweetie could do the same. So, first things first: bathroom stop, fuel stop, and wind the way home on the back roads. Back roads that also had a new foot of snow, but at least they were moving! That was at nine o'clock p.m. by then. By midnight they had one lane re-opened. Glad he could make it back up the ramp to use the back roads and didn't wait for the re-opening of the freeway! Also glad to know he was safe and there were no major injuries.
So, back to the retreat that I am supposed to be teaching for this weekend...
If I find a horse to pull my sleigh,
how long will it take
with one-horse power
to make a trip
that would normally be
a four and half hour drive by car???
And will I be able to get
all my sewing paraphernalia packed into that sleigh???

random thoughts about family, quilting, stitching & designing, cooking and things that make life interesting! I married my high school sweetie and have two great children, an equally-as-great
d-i-l & three grandbabies. You'll find me playing with fabric or wood (it's a textile thing), trying new recipes and playing with my food, a little gardening, reading, making my HQFusion hum, and laughing with friends! I think that sometimes it helps to sort through your thoughts by writing them down... creativity flows, the mind calms & the body smiles. A tangled thread runs through it all...this is just my unraveling of that thread: quilting, cooking, friends, family, and whatever else may strike my fancy.
