Snow Day

“Nature has no mercy at all. Nature says, "I'm going to snow. If you have on a bikini and no snowshoes, that's tough. I am going to snow anyway."” - Maya Angelou

So... it snowed last night and is still snowing as I write this. In a good news/bad news scenario, it didn't snow as much as they'd predicted (upwards of 12 inches) but it still snowed enough to keep DH home from work. I really wanted to get back to my routine. It's been a tough weekend.

The dog, OTOH, loves the snow. She went out this morning for potty and just ran back and forth, back and forth, using her nose as a plow. Dogs are so funny. I think anyone who is depressed should get one.

DD got two custom jewelry orders this weekend. One was for two sets of this bracelet (as Valentines Day gifts):

And a matching pair of earrings that I don't have a picture of.

And another was a request for these earrings, and for her to make a matching bracelet:

And, she got another order from someone for earrings, but I can't say who or what, because they are for someone who occasionally reads my blog and I don't want to give the game away.


So, I met Ceri yesterday. It was fun -- for us. Not so much for our kids who came along. She brought her two daughters, and I brought mine. And the three of them sat at a table and literally said not ONE word the entire time. DD said, "We just stared at the floor."

Clearly I need to make up a list of conversation starters....


You Are Acrophobia

You are the fear of heights.

It's likely that you expect bad things to happen to you. You often feel unlucky.

It would be just your luck to fall from a high spot... and you're not going to chance it.

You tend to be pretty risk adverse. You rather be safe than sorry.

I am risk adverse, actually. I don't think that's a bad thing...

My girls came up with a bunch of topics on the way home, especially 4-H (even though they do chickens). Next time. If it's any consolation my girls are normally that quiet (except at home). Their teachers constantly ask me if they ever talk. I'm still deciding if that's a good thing or not.

But I had a good time.

And more beautiful earrings there! Your DD has some skills! :)

I'm glad you had a good visit with Ceri.

You Are Agoraphobia

You are the fear of leaving your house.

The outside world is overwhelming and even a bit terrifying for you.

Your home is your sanctuary, and you don't feel truly comfortable in the outside world.

You try to venture out as much as you can, but you definitely have hermit tendencies.
I do have hermit tendencies.

Have a good Monday.

I had the same phobia as you. Didn't fit at all. Rain is bad, but snow is worse. Except when you get 8 inches of rain ! ! !

Congratulations to DD for the special orders! Your description of you dog going through the snow is hilarious!

"You Are Arachnophobia: You are the fear of spiders.
You have a heightened intuition, and you usually rely on it to guide you.
If something freaks you out or bothers you, you figure there must be a reason for it.
Your fears may be unfounded, but you don't try to fight them. There's something primal about being afraid."
Technically I am afraid of spiders and I also think that if something is bothering me badly, there's a reason for it. Don't knock intuition. *g*

Have a fabulous day!
