After the blizzard!

Our street.

Cleaning up the drive way.

My new WIP, St Basils Cathedral from Dimples Designs.
It's still a mess here after the blizzard that hit us Thursday. It's been snowing on and off for the last 4 days and we have strong winds too. So some roads are still closed due to drifting snow and the snow is piled so high in certain area's that the street crew can't plow them.
They finally cleaned up our street. These are the pictures that turned out ok, tried to take some during the blizzard but they didn't come out. And there was no way that I was going outside to take them. I would have ended up somewhere in Iowa or something with those winds.
Yesterday I had to brave the weather and go out for groceries, the cupboards were empty after everyone has been home for such long time. Unfortunatly I was not the only one. It took forever, I was not in the best mood when I got home. I can't take crowds.
I did sit down and kitted up St Basil's Cathedral from Dimples Designs and started stitching on it, scanned a picture of my progress. It's for Mel, she turns 50 this year in August so hopefully I will finish it and have it framed by then.
We went out for a nice anniversery dinner yesterday. Almost didn't get out since our babysitter had forgotten about it (he had the flu so he's excused, it's not easy to remember when you are that sick). But he's brother filled in for him and we did get the last open table down at our little nice French restaurant that's pretty close to us. Nice dinner and a nice bottle of wine, and it's so nice to sit down and talk without being interrupted by kids.
So in all it turned out to be a pretty good day!

Stay warm and safe - that is quite some snow you got there! Come on spring - Kajsa needs you!

Happy Anniversay to you and Anders Kajsa. Well done. Glad you were able to get out.

Loved the pics, felt the cold as I sit here in very hot temps. What a clean up mission.

Mel will love the piece you are stitching for her too.... keep it going.
