I did some knitting on Saturday until my carpal tunnel decided that that was enough of that so I switched to working on my ROD journal pages. I spent the entire day Sunday with this thing. I want my journal to be of the entire year. It's kind of a big year. I turn 45, Jason graduates from High School, Mark and I celebrate our 20Th wedding anniversary. You know stuff like that. I want it to all be in one journal. So, with that in mind my journal signatures are getting rather large. Six signatures each 12 pages (48 individual pages per signature)
I'm hoping a 3 inch binding will hold all of this.
I purchased an old set of Winnie The Pooh books (I love the illustrations. One of them is a book of poems) and I've decided to use a few of the pages in this journal. I added a piece of velum over it to give me a place to journal on the page.
I love those old illustrations. And, if you are interested, here are a few more pages that I've been working on. (the prep work takes a long time) I can't wait to start writing in this journal. It's also going to have a lot of photos in it. More photos than words actually.
I added a lot of these little clear pockets to hold some of the photos and other little odds and ends (tickets, receipts, and such.)
and the snow...Oh it came with a vengeance. It started at around 2:30 PM Friday afternoon and finished around 3:30 PM Saturday afternoon. In all we got 27 - 28 inches of snow. That's a lot of snow at one time! When it started it was so pretty. It had a lot of sparkle to it. Like sequins or glass confetti. Very pretty.
When I woke up Saturday morning you couldn't even see out several windows.
the poor bushes and trees took a beating with the weight of the snow. It was a really wet snow so it was very heavy.
I was getting very worried that the deck would collapse!
We all went out in the mid morning to clear off some of the snow to save the deck. Howard was very excited!When it finally ended it was a bit overwhelming! A LOT of snow to shovel!
like I said, about 27 or 28 inches deep!
Jason used our snow blower (which is a must have!) While he was doing our driveway some man came by with this really heavy duty snow blower. He was just cruising down the street clearing the entire sidewalk in seconds. Crazy good snow blower. Jason had serious snow blower envy. That was a very nice man!
The kids made sure that Mark could get his truck out, but my car and truck were completely covered in snow. And they didn't even bother with my half of the driveway because they knew I wasn't going anywhere.
they finally cleared the rest of the driveway today because guess what...they are calling for another 18 - 20 inches of snow to fall TOMORROW!!!! AAAAA! that's a little bit insane. What are we going to do with 4 feet of snow on the ground! School obviously is closed. They probably won't be able to go back until February 16. They have off for a Federal Holiday on the 15Th so we are all going to be a bit sick of each other by next week. We never get this much snow in such a short period of time. What a mess.
