Yep! Joe and I went to my parents' house this weekend...they live 15 minutes north of Myrtle Beach, SC. It started snowing last night and it was still there this morning. The road were clear and almost all of it melted as soon as the sun came out. It was still frigid though. Crazy weather.

no snow here either! But I can see some on the mountains nearby. A few weeks ago, we had a cold snap and some lingering precipitation from a storm, and my phone app actually showed snowflakes in the forecast. But they never actually appeared. I was so disappointed!
Soul lunch today. Ride out to the rickety Old Bayport Inn on Pine Island for a nice sunny lunch on the deck and then a walk around Bayport Park. Good for my tummy. Good for my soul. 88 degrees here today but windy as all get out!
Jean, that sounds like a lovely day! And I agree, we can come up with a holiday to celebrate every day! It is sunny here, too, but windy and only mid 60s for temp. Still, I'm always happier when the sun is out!
I spent the morning straightening out one of my craft cabinets. I really need to stop buying stuff that's non-essential. Also, how much of a 6x6 patterned paper pad must one use before it's OK to toss it out? I am not very good at getting rid of stuff.
I am basically planning to spend the weekend cleaning (and purging, if I can force myself to!) and stamping. I figure, clean a little, stamp a little!
Tomorrow I'm going to make fondue while I watch the Oscars as my reward. I haven't made fondue in ages and it's one of my favorite things. Not the most exciting weekend, but I need some down time, I think.
Mmmmmmm, fondue. Cheese fondue? With crusty bread and veggies. And fruit. You're making me drool, Michelle. I giggled at the 6 x 6 paper. I threw some old SU ones out a little while back. I said I was going to stop buying them, but then yesterday I found one I just couldn't leave behind at Michael's. It's all essential, Michelle! Just came in from laying on a blanket in the yard. Amazing cloud formations and they're speeding by today.
yes, cheese fondue - cheese, white wine, a splash of kirsch. With ham (or actually, I think I'll use canadian bacon slices) green apples, bread, maybe some broccoli and red peppers. Some kind of arugula salad on the side. Now I am getting hungry!
I've been working on and in my craft room today too. I'm afraid to throw out papers most of the time. Especially papers in 6x6 pads that match other papers. I'm afraid one day I'll need them. So see, they might all be essential.
Nice day here, but mostly cloudy. Very windy here as well.
I'm all for naming days after cocktails. We have holidays for everything else, why not?
Between the Sheets is an interestingly complex cocktail that is also referred to as a Maiden's Prayer. Try substituting either apricot brandy or peach schnapps for the brandy for a fruitier flavor.
Prep Time: 3 minutes
Total Time: 3 minutes
Yield: 1 Cocktail
3/4 oz brandy
3/4 oz light rum
3/4 oz triple sec
1/2 oz lemon juice
lemon twist for garnish
Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice cubes.
Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
Garnish with the lemon twist.
I had one of these one time at "Willie Lump Lump's" in Fort Lauderdale and I tell ya, after it, all I wanted to do was get between the sheets and take a nap!
