Karma's was fascinated with the new snow. Begged to go out several times yesterday--even if she didn't last more than a minute or two.
It kept snowing.
I never heard how many inches we got...
...but, as you can see on the parked cars, it was several.
The plow finally showed up in the afternoon to basically make a big swipe thru the parking lot. They aren't very good about shoveling or plowing here compared to other places I've lived. Might be another case of you get what you pay for? Like the roofers? LOL!
I was so excited to see a package in the mail from Iggy!!
My very favorite kind of leaves--maples!!
Aren't they gorgeous?
And look at these fancy things!
I've never seen them before. They are so delicate and almost fluffy.
Iggy said they are from a Red Japanese Split Maple. I absolutely love these!
Thanks soooo much, Iggy!! You're an angel! I can hardly wait to show Leah tonight. She might have to fight me for these, tho--ROFL!
They finally came thru and did the sidewalk. People were having to fight their way into the building all day...and the snow is deep, as you can see.
I am so blessed that I don't have to go anywhere. Being housebound has its silver lining, I guess, eh? ;)
I am wondering if they are going to have the parking lot plowed enough for Dagan and Leah to get in and out tonight?
Okay--new idea for the etsy shop. Was thinking that it would be really cool if people could pick out a sentiment for the inside of a blank card if they wanted one. We could take a picture of several simple sentiments (made from rubber stamps) that they could pick from. For example: Thank You, Thinking Of You, Happy Birthday, etc. It would take a little extra time, but they could could have their card customized, you know?
And then I was also thinking that I could show a sample of my handwriting and they could have a very personalized card if they wanted--with a hand written sentiment. For example: Happy 40th Birthday Phil--Happy 25th Anniversary John and Mary--You're The Best--whatever they want.
Just curious as to what you guys think of these ideas?
Anyways, it is eight below zero and sunny. Dagan and Leah plan to come over tonight. Leah and I have a date with the Christmas cards--hehe! I think it is a spaghetti night. :)
