I just heard that 48 states had snow. The only two that didn't was Florida and Loisiana. Now that is really rare. I have been so cold today. No matter what I put on, I can't get warm. I guess we might be going back to school tomorrow, after a two hour delay! I was going to post earlier and put the pics on, but I got busy scrapbooking, so I will shoot for tomorrow. I was watching some scrapbooking shows on my days off and I wanted to do them before I forgot! Later!

I will be sending some of this snow to Ga. today with David, Heather and the grandbabes. They are leaving to go to Daytona for the race.(silly kids) Val wants some snow and as a friend I want to send her some. The kids built this cute little snowman yesterday, isn't he cute? The chicken recipe I tried was awesome. It is a keeper. Today might be a chilli or soup day???? The girls are being lazy today. They were up there watching all the goins on of the outside animals but got tired, you know how rough it is to watch over things.

I haven't tasted them yet, but I know I love looking at them! Brownies, with mini marshmallows and homemade frosting, how can you go wrong????? I am also trying a new recipe from Betty Crocker, it is called chicken breast with creamy mushroom gravy. It sounds delicious. I'll let you know.

As you can see, all the animals are having fun in the snow. I bet there were over 100 birds out there this morning. They are like the people at kroger's yesterday, fearing the White Death. I did tell them there will be no food shortages and to stop their bickering! I don't know if you can see them but there were seven squirrels in the tree this morning. They were running around the tree like kids playing in the snow. The one setting on the concrete feeder sit there for over half an hour eating and watching the goins on. I shoveled some of the snow so we could get the garbage out tomorrow and the dogs were in the back yard playing in the snow, but as you can see when I got the camera, they just looked at me. Ozzie was barking (yeah) at the goofy dog next door. Lady kept trying to sneak under the deck and dig. So if you see a picture later of a bunch of dirt on top of the snow, you will know she succeeded. She's got her eyes closed like I can't see her if she closes them! Ok, I have to go, I just heard the oven buzzer go off and that's mean's "Time to make the Doughnuts Brownies"It is from Mommy's Kitchen and Kim said they were to die for. So you know I have to try what Kim does b/c we are twins!!!! I will post the brownies after they get done. YUMMO!!!!!

Yes, I am grateful for a snow day b/c we have worked hard all week. (monday) I decided if Ozzie wasn't better yesterday we would go to see the doc. He started acting funny thursday. So I figured if he was working up for a big seizure he would have had it by now. So, I called on my way home and scheduled an appt. Well, when I got home he seemed a lot lot better. But I decided to go ahead and take him b/c he had done the same thing over the weekend, acted better and then like he was dying. Well, she checked him out and she seems to think he hurt his back. A couple places she touched on his spine, he would tense up. She said when animals get hurt, they won't cry unless it's excruciating pain. They just don't eat and don't do things they typically do, like chase the cats or bark at the pain in the butt new dog next door, or get in to everything like he usually does. So, basically, he has a backache! Which is very good news. I thought he might have had a stroke. She gave him some pain medicine with steroids. When we got home, he still wouldn't eat. He did finally eat later. I had fixed their kongs up with peanut butter and kibble. I had put them in the freezer, Ozzie loved it. But he is acting 100% better. We have just let him have the run of the house the several nights, so I could keep an eye on him overnite. However, last night, I told Rick he would definetly be confined to the kitchen b/c if not he would eat things like, remotes, cats, cell phones, money, cats, paper, pictures, etc.......For those of you who don't know Ozzie, no he isn't a puppy, but he is only eight years old!!!! Hopefully he will grow out of that chewing stage. (NOT)

Ok, I know we have some snow and it is very cold but it could be worse. My sis-in-law, who lives in W.Va. has 14 inches. So, see it could be way worse. My friend Kim has been telling me I need to start a list of things that I am grateful for, so here goes. Today sunday, I am grateful that we didn't get all the snow they were predicting. Also, I am grateful for my friend, Rosemary at work. I think she has been through a few things the last year or so but she always tries to be upbeat. I am sure that is not always how she feels but she tries. She tells me all the time how grateful she is that I come into her class and help her. I love her class, Tech Apps, b/c she has taught me so many new things. So actually it is me that should be grateful. She made some small gift bags for me and showed me how to make them. So in return I made her some things on my cricut. It really is the little things that make us happy. In other news, my Ozzie who has been not feeling well seems to be feeling better today. This is the first day since thursday he has really eaten anything. I am almost sure he had a stroke. He is moving in super slow motion although he doesn't act like he's in any pain. Ozzie has seizures, knock on wood though he hasn't had one to speak of in over a year. So I don't know if he is working up for a real big one or what. Anyway he looks and acts better today. Yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
