The area roads are looking good…well except for the dirt roads…they are a tad messy.
We are in some kind of Winter Storm Watch, they keep changing the forecast so who really knows what will happen…rain, sleet or snow and how much of each.
I guess you never really know what life will toss your way.
Yesterday we headed to Moorhead for a benefit for long time friends Lynne and Jim. They are both amputees. Nice to see so much support in the community for our old friends. Their children had the benefit to help out with medical expenses and to make their home more handicap accessible. Jim lost his leg years ago to a staph infection in the bone and recently has had a multitude of health problems, Lynne lost a valiant fight through 14 surgeries to save her leg after a fall from a chair. (She was reaching up to hang a plant on a hook and fell.) Between them they have two left legs…or two legs left. Both still have a sense of humor.
It was a nice day for a Sunday drive. Chance enjoyed a game of ball along the way.
We returned home to some mud and brown. My guess is that March will go out just like it came in…miserable. March 1st it was –40 F wind chills.
March 1st I made some goals for the month.
I hope to work out the kinks in a new Christmas ornament design…and then decide if it is possible to do
65 70 of them. R & D is complete, it is possible. I have purchased the paint and the string to use for hangers and Far Guy is cutting out the rough shapes and we have begun carving them. Each ornament has six pieces so it is no easy project. We are starting early enough that we should be able to complete them in plenty of time and perhaps even sell a few…in my humble opinion they are beautiful and will be hard to top next year.
Finish the afghan I started as a 2013 Christmas Gift for Jen. In progress. I ran out of yarn, purchased another skein of yarn and it is the wrong color…darn florescent lights anyway.
Have the annual snow stick contest on the blog. The carvings are done. Just waiting for the snow to melt at the snow stick!
Work on Far Guy Military Scrapbook…it has been on my desk since New Years. My part is completed, everything is in the scrapbook, he still needs to write down some memories before he can’t remember. It felt so good to get it off my desk!!! Yeah me!!!
I am not sure what goals I will set for April…time will tell.
