Let it Snow


I have had enough power outages in the past few years to last a lifetime. As I sit here watching Sandy start to roll in, I am bracing for yet another couple of nights in the dark. To keep my mind from fretting or dreading, I am trying to look on the bright side. At least if we have snow, I might be in more a Christmas mood. At least if the power is out, I will have time to work on things other than school. At least my cupboards are stocked, we have the means to stay warm, and we will be together.

I will list some of these sweeties on the Etsy site as soon we have internet again. For now, stay dry and warm!
