After more than a year of wearing just my wedding band, I had my engagement ring and my Mom's eternity band repaired.  My engagement ring was needing new points and I almost lost the stone.  My Mom's ring was another story - I had lost a stone in it and it needed new points on a few stones as well.My fingers are happy! Excuse my dried out winter hands.....

It's been a weird day - rain and clear skies and then hail and a blizzard with inches of snow.  And the temperature fell about 20 degrees.  Gotta love winter here in Ottawa.

I'm in Heaven! I have been using a little HP mini notebook to run my Silhouette die cutter.  It's been a pain.  I can't see the full screen and I'm forever waiting for the software to load.  Andy, quite generously, gave me his old Dell to use.  It's a full size, lighted keyboard.....I LOVE IT!

I've finally sorted out my scrapbooking tote and I have a pile of layouts to photograph and file in albums.

We've had so much snow that even Bruno has difficulty getting around in it.

Out of the 100's of Hot Wheels that Lucas had when he was younger, this one has remained on my desk.  Not sure why I kept it until now, but I have a great idea for a scrapbook layout about it.

I think Zipper is feeling better. He's eating again. We were all a little worried even though we kept telling ourselves that he was okay - he was purring, and grooming and drinking and using the litter box.....

Only a scrapbooker would understand how addicting Thickers can be.  So when a friend called to say she had found a really good bargain on them and did I want any, my immediate answer was "YES!".

Sometimes the snow is a matte finish to it, but some days, it has a sparkle.  Tried to capture that here.

It was inevitable - the huge snow pile was hauled away yesterday.

The snow pile out front is so big that if someone parks on the circle, you can't get around their car.

Zipper has not been feeling well the last few days.  If you know Zipper, then you know that he came by his 20 lbs honestly as he eats everything in front of him and looks for more.  We've had him on a diet for 2 years now of a scant 1/4 cup of kibble twice a day, and he's only lost 1/2 a pound.  The last few days he hasn't been eating, but he is still his loveable, purry self.

Time to take down the tree and put away the decorations.

Happy 19th Birthday Lucas!

"The snow is really piling up outside...".  Reminds me of the old Meatloaf song.

We've had so much snow this past week!  Rachel got stuck 4 times trying to get home from work, which is only 4 blocks away.  Andy had to dig her out and a neighbour helped to get her car into our driveway.
