Snowmageddon

Posted in Journal tagged , , , at 9:13 pm by Jenn

Well today was the day.  No putting if off til tomorrow.  It had to be done.  I got out of bed, bundled up and got ready to shovel….let the pain begin.

It was bad, but not as bad as it could have been I suppose.  Last night we were lucky enough to be visited by a kind man in a front loader.  He dug out our street…..our street that usually doesn’t get plowed.  There were 4 of us out there moving snow today so it only took a few hours to clean off the driveway,  and space for the mail truck to get near the box.

Here’s a few pics of the snow

Max was bored by the whole thing.

So the driveway got finished and Dad ran out to do a few errands, you know….BEER RUN!  He also stopped by the hardware store to pick up a few things for Heather to stain her new spinning wheel.  She bought an Ashford Traveller, unfinished and is now staining it a pretty honey oak color.

She started dying fiber yesterday and that process carried over to this afternoon.  Here’s a pic of what she did yesterday.

Of course I can’t resist dyeing fiber so I got in on the act…..here’s a few pics of the process

It was a very productive day.  I even managed to whip up my borscht.  Here’s a picture of the finished product.  It tasted as good as it looks.  I’m pretty impressed with myself.  Those cooking lessons from Olga paid off!

Now I’m sitting here watching the halftime show and getting ready to do a little bit of knitting.  Back to work tomorrow.  Hopefully the nice front loader man will come and do the rest of the neighborhood tonight.  Dad said 301 was a mess so it should be a fun commute!  Note to self, remember to take some Aleve.

    The soup was super easy. I was pleasantly surprised that it was so good. Not quite sure why I was doubting myself! Enjoy the blog.

    Hope the commute wasn’t too painful today! Spring is only a month and a half away 😉 (yay) Your yarn colors are awesome and the borscht looks good!
