Snowy Sunday

Woke up to 2 inches of fresh snow, most of it has melted since, but it’s drippy and windy now…

I decided to make the Humorless One a treat and baked him up a huckleberry cobbler and have a pot of New England clam chowder simmering on the stove.  Also threw a batch of soft Italian bread sticks in the bread machine but got lazy and formed them into loaves and tossed them in the oven, they smell delish, so I guess the shape doesn’t matter.  There would be pics of all the yummy food I’ve made over the weekend, but the Humorless One managed to decimate all said goodies before I could get pictures (without bites and chunks missing, that man lives by his stomach alone…lol)  maybe next time, heh?

The Humorless One got the doors and trim installed in the basement yesterday, that’s The ManCub, Cody guarding my quilting room/office door…and yes it’s closed for a reason, that reason being IT’S A DISASTER AREA at the moment!  Didn’t want to send you all running screaming from your computers from the sight of it.

You can even see the little thread scraps and dust/cat hair bunnies trying to escape under the door!  :-/

All in all it was a fairly productive Sunday (considering I stayed up half the night working on the website and THEN watching a movie till 3 am) but I sure do wish the weather would clear up and let me outside to enjoy some sunshine and get my hands into the soil (instead of MUD)

This time of year really gets to me sometimes, as much as I try to fight it.  I keep telling myself that it’ll be 101 and sweltering before I know it and then I’ll have something new to gripe about…lol

The cats are just as depressed as I am with the weather, good old Susie just sits and glares at the snow and the new guy can’t seem to figure out how to go outside without stepping in the mud and tracking it in the house…he has WHITE FEET for Heaven’s Sake!!! I thought cats were supposed to be clean freaks, but the ManCub is turning into The PigletCub, such a dirty little cat! (He’s not little, only 8 mos old and weighs 17 lbs already!!!)  I keep trying to explain to him that he’s not so little anymore and Mommy can’t breath (or see the tv, book, quilt) when he lays on her chest now!!!  HMPH    I love my kitties, but sheeeesh, between the construction and the cat hair AND the cats tearing around here after each other I’m gonna need the looney bin soon!

Getting late now, so I suppose I’ll go upstairs and get dinner on the table for the Humorless One and myself so that we can gobble up some of the huckleberry cobbler with vanilla ice cream (of course) and relax in front of the boob tube.

Hope the weather is nice wherever you are, and if it is, enjoy it for me too  🙂

Love The HomesteadQuilter

  2. Your blog is lovely! Thanks for the kind words. (The mug is from Amazon!)

    • Thanks, Chris, I’ve spent alot of time reading your blog…love it!
      I’m off to Amazon…lol

  3. As we live in a country which is close to equator it never snows here. So, when we were kids we use to wonder how it will be like to see snowing. Be glad, because you are now seeing it.
