I'm baaack - I think.

I can't believe it's been most of a week since I posted here. So sorry. What can I say, I've simply been overwhelmed with the snow!! In less than 7 days, we were inundated with just shy of 4 FEET of the white stuff !! I'm up to my neck (or at least my chest) in this junk. (All of the pics I posted were from the first storm. The second dumped another 17 inches on us.)
Picture after the SECOND storm!

The bad news is: they're calling for more of this stuff on Monday. Hopefully, only a few inches. We've shoveled "flurries" in the past so I'm not so sure about believing these guys. As for us, we'll stock up on some groceries again and plan to settle in.

Realistically, we were lucky. We never lost power but our phone and internet service was interrupted for a short while. Inconvenient but not a big problem. I had more computer interruption by The Big Guy being home with me. The nerve of him. He expected to use the computer - often for hours at a time!!

I spent a lot of time reading, cooking, photographing stock for my etsy shop - Splashin, and even doing a puzzle. I've polished off nine books!!!! (Okay, nothing epic - mostly some Janet Evanovich and such. These are usually quick reads but it does give you a sense of accomplishment when you complete a book every day or so.) I made real meals for dinner each night (got to keep those shoveling men fed!).

I've had a whole pile of things to get listed in the shop and needed to take time to take photos and write up descriptions. I finally did that and will be adding to the shop on a daily basis for a while. (I don't add everything at once so as to give things a chance to get seen on the front page or In the new listings.) Listing in the shop can be very time consuming because of the background work. So, with that done, I should be able to roll right along with these new items.

What I didn't do was make anything new. I just wasn't very inspired. I find snow soooo depressing! I didn't just develop that opinion. I said that way back in the hot. sticky summer. I didn't even like snow when I was a kid!

So, that's what I've been up to. How about you?

We got three feet and may have more and I'm about to cry just writing this!
