It sure started out to be a pretty morning,
the colors were amazing and I was lucky
to catch the shot when I did. In a matter of minutes
the colors fade away as the sun makes it over the hills.
Regardless, it would be short lived.
Yet another winter storm advisory
Rain to Sleet to Snow by nightfall,
expected accumulation 3-5 inches by morning.
So much for finishing up my shopping.
I worked from home in the morning and
took 1/2 day vacation in the afternoon for just that.
So, what did I do instead?
I changed out the dining table
from Thanksgiving to Christmas.
My thrift store Funky Santa made his 2013 debut
along with new friends
Mr. Snowman Tea pot and cup
and Ms Penguin coffee mug.
They make a nice trio on my
S'Noel table runner.
After baking some brownies I grabbed
my apple peeler/corer and two bags of apples.
I had an entire bowl of peels and cores left for
the critters this evening. They'll make a nice
treat when everything is covered in snow.
I gave the slices a lemon juice/water bath and
laid them out on the dehydrator sheets.
Then shaking my head, I realized that when
this is all said and done I would have prepped apples
for about an hour, with several more hours in dehydrator time,
only to have my husband gobble them down in no time flat!
A friend stopped by a bit ago and reported
that the roads are starting to get pretty
slushy. Until it stops raining there's no use in
putting down the salt and having it run off the hillside.
I guess nature made sure I had plenty of quilting time
tomorrow- I need it! Deadlines approach.
