Survived The Ice Storm !!

I am still iced over in central Bama... That is, my front porch is still covered in ICE... We were hit Sunday night and Monday with 1" of ICE. More rain mixed with snow Tuesday which froze over Tuesday night. I finally got to venture off the Homestead yesterday afternoon for a post office run. We still have ice on the bridges and overpasses. Snow fell from the sky today or should I say blew around with the wind. At one time the sun was shinning and the snow was blowing... Was pretty to see. This has been the only snow we seen in my area. I can say I have seen ICE fall from the sky a lot... Tired of ICE...

I did get a good bit of stitching on Snow Garden by Blackbird Designs. I am loving this little square. What a great time to stitch, the Snow Clouds where spitting ice down on us and I was stitching away on Snow Garden !!! I did survive the ice storm by eating my weight in these:

If you love the Girl Scout Cookies - Samoas !! You will love these. I think they are better. Those little elves in that tree sure know how to make Cookies !!! I am addicted. I will now have to limit myself to 1 pack a week. ( sounds like a cigarette habit) I have to limit myself to 2 cookies upon opening of the package. If you happen to see any chocolate smears on the cross stitch.. I was chewing while stitching.
I will get a picture posted tomorrow of the cross stitch... Not the empty package of cookies... Till Tomorrow....

Oh, no you didn't show me that pack of cookies! Samoa's are the only girl scout cookie I can't resist and believe me, I can eat an entire package in one sitting. Yep, I have done so on more than one occasion. I'm doomed....

Stay safe and warm - ice is NO fun but being inside stitching is tons of fun!

Uh-oh. Now I am in trouble. I usually stash about 4 boxes of Samoas when they come out. Knowing I can get them anytime is opening up a world of trouble for me. LOL

Hope you are staying warm!

LOL April! Makes me want to skate my way to the store for some of those. Our front yard is still frozen over with ice.
looking forward to seeing your stitchy things,
