This is our road after the grader went through. It doesn't look too bad right now, but two tractors tried to get through it with blades on and couldn't. This isn't the worse part of our road. We have 3 sections much worse than this to go through.
We had a drift past Kevin's waist in front of our door. He was glad we put the scoop inside the porch door. He had to scoop in order to even get out. Here is the pile just outside our door.
Well enough about our winter storms. We have been spoiled with mild winters the past few years, but this year we are just getting a regular winter. I don't like it! I am so ready for spring.
I got a couple of nice gifts in the mail from friends in the past couple of weeks. Here is a wall quilt that Bren made for me. Isn't it beatiful? She knows what kind of colors I love.
Look at these tiny quilting stitches. I hope I can quilt that tiny some day. I love hand quilting, but I think I am actually better at sewing on my machine. But then again, I have had over 30 years of doing that, and just really started quilting about 3 years ago. (grin) The first picture shows the colors better. The flash washed out the color on the second picture. Thank you, Bren. I love it!
My friend Ann sent this candle holder to me. I was amazed. She said her husband made it. I believe he is a blacksmith. I love it. She also knitted and felted the two hotpads shown here.
Please excuse the mess behind this and to the side. I have been busy sewing and always make a mess when I sew. I need to take a day after the holidays and just clean up. LOL
Now I am going to wrap this post up, but I will be back, hopefully tomorrow. But before I do, I want to introduce you to our newest granddaughter, Madison Nicole. She is 5 months old today, but I have never posted a picture of her. For shame on me! She is our son, Isaiah's and Lori's daughter. Look at those round cheeks. She has the bluest eyes and dimples in her cheeks just like our boy. She is so loveable.
Here she is with her proud daddy holding her. I was holding her in the above picture. I wish she would grin so you could see those adorable dimples. So now we have 3 granddaughters and 2 grandsons. (grin)
Well, that is enough for now. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. I am sure ours will be once we get to have it. LOL It is good to be back among my friends. I have missed you all. November and December are always very busy times for me, so I don't usually have much computer time. I am going to try to change the look of my blog again. I have tried several times on Firefox, but it didn't work, so now I am going to try changing it on IE7. Everyone have a wonderful day. Thank you for visiting. Hopefully, I'll see you tomorrow.
