I am thinking I am in bad need of a hobby this winter. I got up this morning when my cell phone rang with Josh calling. Josh is Jason's best buddy and like a step son to us. He had called to make sure we were all OK during this ice storm. He lives in a mid size town about an hour from us with his wife and lil boy. They were iced in and waiting on the road crews to clear the roads so they could get out to work. I think the guys had all wanted to deer hunt this weekend but that wont happen. A deer could hear ya coming a mile away on the crunchy ice. So for now they are all safe. So I set about to finish up the candy making to get a package ready to ship out to Rob and Amoy the first of the week. Got that done and sat down at the computer to check emails and such. Then I got started playing a stupid online game. Oh my, I have wasted a whole day on that thing. Not like I was going to do much anyway. But gees, I can see how people can get hooked on those things. I still have not picked up my knitting that I had intended to learn this winter. Nor the crocheting either. I think I need to put my time to better use going thru the seed catalog trying to figure out what kind of seeds we need to order this year. I usually do try to get my seed order in early in the winter so I can have time to plot and plan how much and where I want everything planted in the garden next spring. But its supposed to be cold and nasty all weekend so maybe I will get that done. The temps today were around 30, just below freezing so I have stayed in. The ice is still hanging around for now. We shall see what the weekend holds for us. Maybe I can do something exciting tomorrow to tell you about.
Till next time, blessings from the McGuire homestead.
