4 to 8 inches of snow expected

I know my friends in Canada and Minnesota will laugh, but everyone here is in a tizzy over the forecast 4-8 inches (10-20 cm) of snow for us here in Mississippi. We generally only get a whopper like that once every decade. If it does get that bad everything will be shut down.

One of the benefits (drawbacks?) of home schooling is that we don't worry about snow days. We can still have lessons. Of course, the girls get to play in the snow (when we have it) whether schools are out or not.

We'll try to keep warm here. You all do the same in your cozy homes.

We now conclude this Mississippi weather announcement and return you to your regularly scheduled furniture rearranging or quilt piecing.

Happy New Year!

Wow! Last post was in March. That can either be interpreted as nothing having happened or too much going on. Either way...

I would like to post more often, but I won't make any promises.

Plans for possible blog posts include; my garden (sorry you missed that this year. It went well.), my hobbies (right now quilting, tatting, crochet, knitting, and photography), my daughters (ages 13, 12, and 10), my wonderful husband, my falling-apart house, and whatever else comes into my head.

One of my resolutions is to take at least one photo every day to document 2011. If I manage, I will try to remember to post then here.

Other resolutions include losing weight, being a better teacher, and getting back to my writing. We'll see how that goes.
