– Pearl S. Buck
Due to the huge winter storm blanketing our area, I may not get to my shop today. So I dug into the paintings I have on my home computer and found Goldie. You’ve seen her before, but it’s been 6 months and she wanted to come out again. he he
I am just thrilled to have electricity! The main punch from the storm missed us by only a few miles. They got major ice! I think today, we are supposed to get snow. My home is at the bottom of a very steep 500 ft driveway, so chances are, I’ll have a three day weekend.
