Blizzards and hot food

I know that I should be doing something today, but it has been blowing snow all day! I am thinking that since it is cold out baking might be the thing to do. I am trying something that I normally don’t use … a mix for peanut butter cookies. I have yet to find a recipe which I feel soft enough for the hubster, so I thought I would try this form. Anything to get the place a bit more cheery and smelling great.


Snow? Of course!

We went to my therapy session today and it was snowing lightly on our way up to N Dakota. The therapist said I was doing great (even though it hurt a lot. When I got done my husband said we had to go straight home since the snow was coming down harder and faster.  I think I agree with him that their predictions of 5 – 7 inches is not far off, maybe even more!

Heading out to the studio, need to dig out so I can work out there tomorrow.  Not sure in Carol will be working tomorrow, but I hope so. I desperately need another trim. Short hair is fine, and it may look good, BUT it takes several trips to the barber to keep it short and neat (at least on my end!


According to the weather aps, we are on a storm watch with an expected 4 – 8 inches by tomorrow.  Normally I love the snow, but I have an appointment out of state tomorrow. I don’t drive in inclement weather.  I could be out in my studio working on perfecting my baskets and doing the cards! But, NO! I am stuck doing mundane things in questionable weather. Just hope it passes us up so I can get up to the appointment and back safely!

Hot and sticky today

I know it says 91 today, but it feels more like 120! There is a touch of humidity in the air which lends to some stick clothes and uncomfortable situations when it comes to being out and about. The problem is that it is suppose to be getting hotter into the weekend and on into next week. Just wish I weren’t working in a dreary cave like  building tomorrow … sure it is cooler in there, but the place is dark and depressing! Oh for some greenery and water features to help not only cool one down but which lends a wee bit of calm into the mixture! But I guess when ones lives on the prairie one should expect that of ones environment.


It is the cool water which feeds and refreshes our souls, brings the plants into a new life and cleanses the air.  When it falls it gives the parched earth a well deserved drink.  It can be gentle as a lamb or as wild as a lion.  It can be unpredictable and arrives without much warning staying on for days on end, or comes silently and swift.  I enjoy the feel of a gentle rain and hope it remains gentle and steady helping the farmers and others who need it in their lands.  May we all be blessed with just enough to care for our needs.
