The Mayor and a little snow

Our daughter Jennifer won the election with 56% of the vote.

She is the new Mayor!

I am certain she will do an excellent job, she has been a councilwoman for a number of years so she knows her way around her little town.  We are very happy for her and very proud!

We have been gone on an adventure. (more on that in the coming days) We returned late Tuesday.  We came home a little early because snow was forecast.

We are happy to be home!  Chance is too although he is a wonderful traveller.  He gets a bit bossy sometimes…he wants to play ball in the motel room at night and will bark at you so of course we play ball with him so he won’t bark.  Our last night in a motel he quickly claimed a bed by laying right across the pillows all stretched out.

We unpacked and I am doing a mountain of laundry.  We headed to the grocery store to fill the larders again…and spent some time returning phone calls, answering mail and turning our clocks back.  We voted absentee this year since we knew we would be gone on election day. 

This is our third snow.  I understand it snowed last week while we were gone.  I suppose this snow will stay…or more will follow shortly IF it melts.  The small ponds were frozen over this morning.

  5. Congratulations to your daughter on becoming the Mayor of your town. What an adventure this is going to be for her and the rest of the family. She has learned from watching you her parents being community minded all these years. She will be a good public servant.
    We have a Boston Terrier, male, who blackmails us with barking if we won't surrender and play ball with him He is a real tyrant and yesterday I had to be very strict with him to avoid playing ball all day. I want to keep that up because getting worn out with playing fetch and tug of war. Enough is enough!
    Here in MPLS they say we might get some "slush" tomorrow. Nothing like what you already have there.

  6. Yea! So glad she was elected. She even looks like one to serve the people well,although having been a public servant, it is no piece of cake. Hopefully she can stand her ground for what she believes to be the right things to do. Love that Chance....knows how to get your attention!

  8. If you have to have snow - the best kind to get is "while you were gone" snow!

    Congrats to the Mayor!

  17. Sometime I will be glad to see the snow and to be out in it when it is quietly snowing and it looks great. Right now I don't think I like the looks of your snow at all.

  18. Congratulations to Jen! That is wonderful news!

    Too bad you had to cut your trip short, but hey, this is November. I was wondering how snow would figure into your plans. At least you are home safe. Now to catch up on everything you missed. There is no such thing as a vacation!

  19. Congratulations to your daughter the Mayor!
    Our snow is here to stay, cold weather and more snow predicted soon. I like a snowy winter so "bring it on"! But an early Spring would be nice too!

  24. Congratulations Jen and to the proud parents! LOL! What an accomplishment and like her Mom at the museum; contributing greatly to the welfare of her community.
    Snow, where does the time go? It seems like just yesterday you were mowing the lawn! Time to hunker down! We are getting that arctic blast along with you this coming week so yes, fill the larders, get out the long underwear and make sure the wood is piled high. Oh, and bake lots of cookies in case the electric goes out. LOL! That' me anyway....I have to have my homemade cookies! lLad you had a great adventure before Winter sets in...just in case it's a long one.
