I will be working on a new video for you today!
I actually started it on Saturday but heard there was big snowstorm coming our way so instead of editing the video on Sunday my guy and I went into town to get more gas for our plow truck and generator and few odds and sods. Sure enough, yesterday we woke up to a TON of snow and blizzard conditions. I had just finished in the shower when the power went out (about 6 am). Fortunately, my coffee was already made and our wood stove was keeping our house cozy, so we didn’t bother putting the generator on. I even made bacon and pancakes on the woodstove!
Once our power came back on, shortly after noon, we started clearing all the snow – it took over six hours! Partly because our plow truck slide off the road and it took time to get it sorted. The snow was like cement! I am sooooo ready for sunshine and warm weather (the Leo in me is not a fan of winter or cold, even though the snow is pretty).
On another side note, I’ve received some emails regarding my recipes that had on my old blog and whether or not I’ll be posting them again on my new blog. The answer is YES!
I will have to edit each photo and post every recipe individually, as this blog platform is a different one, so it’s going to take some time. However, it’s at the top of my list of things to do (and maybe more cooking videos too?).
Enjoy the day, stay well & HAPPY STAMPING!
