Well, it looks like we'll get a "glancing blow" (as the weather woman calls it) as the Nor'easter comes barreling up the coast. They started by saying that we would get all rain, now they are calling for snow 3-6 inches. Who knows what we'll end up with. I do know that it won't be as much as our friends in Boston are supposed to get.
And, when is this snow supposed to get here? Last report was during our rush hour trip home of course! I love it when it snows as long as I don't have to drive in it. I also worry about Mr OP and the kids driving in it too. My Mum called to see if we have groceries in. Hello! Doesn't she know who she's talking to? I've always got enough food, plus supplies on hand to bake and make soup!
While going through some of my Gram's things this week (I've had the storage box for a few years), I found the cute little heart shaped wooden create. How funny is it that Valentine's is a week away? I decided to give it a quick little makeover - first by painting it in a soft white then covering the ends with pink paper.
I also found some pieces of her costume jewelry. It makes me smile to remember her wearing some of the pieces to church. She always wore those screw or clip on type earrings every Sunday. She complained about them pinching her ears as she was struggling to get out of her girdle and control top panty hose:)
Gram's been gone for almost 13 years, but it seems like yesterday that she was giving me advice. Our Fireman and Flyboy were so lucky to have had her loving influence in their lives. They were 16 and 14 when she passed away.
Wishing you all a warm and cozy weekend!
