very expensive restaurant. Neither of us wanted to go but it was for a family friend who is rapidly succumbing to Alzheimer's. Her daughter wanted to do something special as it will likely be the last birthday her Mom remembers most of us. I could relate to how she felt so we went. It was the absolute worst experience ever. I would say the service was bad, but it was virtually non existent.

I had the loveliest surprise when I came home last night. I saw the lid up on my mailbox and feared it was stuffed full of bills (as usual). Imagine my surprise when I found this......

Scenes from the day

So, it's now been 16 hours of continuous snowing. And it's not showing any signs of letting up. I had a snow day, as did everyone else in the province

We are in "storm prep" mode again. The weather chick on tv referred to tomorrow's storm as "the worst of this season". That's a direct quote. Wonderful! It's supposed to start early in the morning and be blizzard conditions for close to 24 hours. This time I bought actually milk and bread. Flashlights were checked and candles are ready if needed. Enough of that. Today I played with quilting some more. I managed to figure out how to attach my new walking presser foot to the sewing machine. I cut fabric for binding the small baby quilt. I watched a video from Missouri Star Quilt Company and cut the strip 2 1/2 inches. It started out ok

If you live in eastern Canada you know all about getting prepared for a winter storm. It's really all about the prep work because you just never know. In late January our neighbor province had thousands of people without power for upwards of a week in some areas. I find as I get older I get more like my mother and grandmother. As soon as Gran heard a forecast of snow she would get antsy. And she had to go right to the store and buy bread and milk. I admit, on Thursday I found myself a little antsy at work. I couldn't concentrate, I wanted to be home getting "settled in" for the Nor'easter storm. Even though it wasn't supposed to start until after supper I still couldn't settle down. However I did manage to get through the day and got my own version of "bread and milk" ready.
