The break between classes for me actually falls on spring break this year, so I finished one class last night, next week is spring break and the week after I start class on Thursdays, I actually get almost two weeks off. Not so between the next two. Then it is finish on Thursday and start the next one the following Monday.

Hey, Vikki Jo -- I'm fresh out of brownies. Can I chuck blueberry muffins at you instead? LOL!

Sorry to be so absent lately...the job that supports my habit keeps getting in the way of the addiction!

Just a reminder....VSN is THIS WEEKEND! Marathon stamp night....YAY!

It was Kelly's idea to change our avatar each month to one of our cards.
I do my monthly cards all the same so that choice is easy for me.
Those who do them all differently have fun choosing just 1! LOL
I could never pick a fave. aThankfully I do not need to do that!

Hey Vikkijo - Are trying to make us wish we had had a winter here in Wisconsin? We only shoveled five times all winter. We have no snow and all the spring flowers are about 3 inches tall already. This better not bring winter to us NOW! - Really that is beautiful! Thanks for sharing! Rita

Gorgeous winter scene Vikki Jo! I need to finish my DD's birthday card (for tomorrow) before I think about Christmas cards again. She loves my cards, but commented a few weeks ago how she loves all my bicycle and cat themed cards, so now I am racking my brain for something different.

Vikki Jo, that's more snow than I've seen all winter. Did we even have a winter here? I'm ready to see some green, though. I'm tired of brown.

Guess what I woke up to this morning. SNOW! Nice wet snow. It looks like it's going to snow all day. We do need the moisture. It's not going to stay on the ground long. It's supposed to be back into the 50's again tomorrow.

OMG! Wow! It was too warm down here to have any hint of snow. Of course with all the rain we have been getting, they are now saying that our drought is officially OVER! We've got more storms on the way this evening, all day tomorrow, and into Wednesday. Not going to be very good for the next couple of days.

That is such a beautiful scene. I hope I can work on mine this week. We'll see. I'm getting ready to have some friends over on Saturday to do some stamping.

We ended up with more snow today than we had all winter. Kind of fitting for the last day of winter. It was so wet and heavy it knocked out our power and phone lines for 8 hours. I ended up not having to go into work tonight. We do have power now, but the lights are starting to flicker again. We'll probably lose power again. At least it stopped snwoing.

Usually at this time of year, our average temperature would be around 40 and it would freeze at night enabling people to collect lots of maple sap for syrup. Well, it got up to 73 degrees today and I spent all day cleaning up my flowerbeds and lawn. And tonight it will only get down to 52 degrees. Just in case you don't believe me, here is a shot of me raking the lawn. It's hard for us to believe too! And it's going to get even warmer the next two days....up to 81 on Wednesday.

I was just stunned by the little bit of the National weather coverage I heard this morning as I was getting ready for work today. We have LOTS of rain today and some of it was frozen on my way to work today. At least we didn't have snow, like we have the last two Tuesdays. We had enough the last two weeks to delay school (only on those Tuesdays though). Very strange!

We ended up with a foot of snow yesterday. Some farmers reported more than that. I was happy to have our power stay on after we got it back. It was flickering a few times. Some areas were still without power this morning. To look at the trees today, you wouldn't have known they were almost breaking from the heavy snow. It's 45 right now so you can imagine the slushy mess we have. It could have been worse.

It's the crazy jet stream! It dipped way south in California and Arizona but the rest of the country is below it. Above it, you're cold, below it, unseasonably hot.

Remember last year? One friend was saying how they had tons of snow days for her kids last year - missing school - and this year ... none.

A friend and I drove up to southeastern Oregon last week from the Bay Area, and we drove through TONS of rain. And I know the area of northern Calif. from Eureka to Crescent City had very high winds and a bad storm last Monday. My friend and I had originally thought about going across from 101 to I-5 but the snow in the mountains between dashed those thoughts!

As it was, it was cold even when it wasn't raining.

Amazing that the week before was in the 70s here in the Bay Area. Normal would mid-60s.

Snow days are almost unheard of here since it usually snows a lot anyway. The only time school is closed is if there's a power outage like yesterday. The power went out around 10 a.m. and the schools didn't let out until noon.
