2019_01 13 snow fun

MASCOT SURPRISE: The Buzzers kinda thought that moving to the middle of the East Coast would mean no more snow fun. Cuz, really, how much snow can a family of former Alaskans expect south of Canada? Fortunately, they were wrong. SNOWMAN! I understand other folks are less than thrilled, but hey, as long as my grands are happy! But in case you have to drive in the mess …

My parish church is so pretty. Because of my chemical hypersensitivities, I haven’t seen it in person in about 20 years, but Mama Buzz took pics when they were here.

2018_12 crocheted nativity

I’m feeling a tad teary right now.

GRAMMY IN RECOVERY: Hugged and kissed the last departures yesterday morning. ::sigh:: It was a great holiday. I’m exhausted! LOL The toys are almost all back on their shelves, but I can’t find the marbles for the marble run. No doubt the fastest way to find them will be to order a new bag of marbles. Dishes – half done. Laundry – half done. Desk – don’t ask. Aaaaaand, on to the news …

Border Wall Shutdown

SHUTDOWN NOTHINGBURGER: Rasmussen polled voters and found that while we are overwhelmingly aware that there’s a partial shutdown of the federal government, most of us haven’t been inconvenienced at all. Two percent of those surveyed thought it hadn’t even started yet!
