Ice Storm and Weekend Plans

Well folks, we will wake up to ice everywhere tomorrow. I may not be able to post due to expected power outages but I wanted to stop by and say hello.

I've had a tiring week. I had a couple of good interviews for two different jobs, a few doctor appointments (that time of year) and worked outside Wednesday and Thursday while it was relatively warm cutting some small trees down and clearing out some huge honeysuckle vines. Today was house cleaning day for my friend, so I am wiped out.

I've been blog hopping tonight and also printed out a few embroidery patterns just in case I can't sew on my machine tomorrow. At least I'll be able to do some hand stitching. After all the hard physical labor I've done this week, not to mention the emotional labor of job hunting, I have a nice, quiet weekend planned. I'm not going out for anything except to take care of my chickens and geese.

Since I can't post pictures of the very special project I'm sewing, I'll leave you with a picture of a painting I did for my oldest daughter and her husband a few years ago. I painted this from one of my gardening books. When I saw it, I thought it would be perfect for Erin to hang over her sofa.

I hope you all have a nice weekend. I'm staying in by the fireplace!

You are so talented! Love the poncho in your previous post too. Your Valentine layout is so nice. We're supposed to get some of the snow tomorrow too. Have a great weekend, and I hope you don't lose power.

It sounds like you've had a very busy week. Good luck with your job hunting. I love your painting. You have a very distinctive style.

Your painting is beautiful! I hope you have a restful weekend.

I was catching up on your past post, so glad to see Blair is home and doing well after her heartworm treatments. Hugs and kisses to her from me, please.
