Snowy Saturday

My brother told me yesterday that the top story on was the blizzard Minnesotans would wake up to this morning.  It certainly was worth all the buzz.  My plans for today were thwarted (meeting my friend Steph for lunch, my goddaughter's 2nd birthday party); my car got stuck in the driveway.  The snow continued to fall today, and some suburbs of the Twin Cities received at least 20 inches of snow.  Tomorrow, the weather is supposed to be bitterly cold and windy.  I don't remember the last time we received a blizzard like this... probably the Halloween Blizzard of '91.

I certainly wish snow days would come during the week so I don't have to go to work, not on days where I have fun events planned.  Oh well.

Last night at a retirement party, my company said goodbye to a classy lady who has been a mainstay at our corporate headquarters for 14 years.

Cathy, you will be missed dearly.  I hope you enjoy your retirement and all of the time you'll be spending traveling and with your family.  I will miss having you as a desk neighbor.

I spent a good chunk of my snowed-in day taking pictures of my jewelry and setting up my Etsy account.  Look at the left sidebar, you'll see my page.  I have eight items currently listed, but I will be adding more over the next several days.  I hope my jewelry will sell (side note: the necklace Cathy is wearing in the above picture is a necklace I made as a gift to her).

I hope you're having a great weekend whether you're snowed in or out and about.


  1. The amount of snow that we got was insane! I was supposed to drive to the St. Bens campus to do a 5K....didn't happen. The roads have sucked for two days. My hubby and I went into Maple Grove last night to go out to eat....the only places open were the gas stations and the bars:)

    Have a great week!

  2. I found your blog through Tall Mom On The Run. I like your jewelry. Instead of snow we have tons of rain here.
