Cloudy, grey skies from Thursday. If you look closely, you can see the sun in the upper third of the photo.
Looking west from the front of our house. This snow drift wraps half way around the house. It is even deeper on the south side of the house. Hubby was able to dig a path out from the garage so I could get to work yesterday. I called him to ask if I could get back up our road to come home last night because I had plowed through a major drift going out. He thought I was talking about the driveway, so he couldn't figure out what I was worried about. I worked an hour and a half over since I was working by myself and I knew no one was scheduled to come in until 11:00 today. I know I'm not getting paid enough to worry about their staffing problems, but I also know how it feels to come in to work and be swamped with orders with no one to help you. I finished all the orders that were due before 11:00, and convinced them to call someone to come in at 9:00 to help. Hope it turned out okay for them. There has just been two of us working all week, and we are getting way behind. We are just barely keeping orders done, with no time to do case cakes. I am going to ask them to order some predecorated cakes until they can get the staffing back up to snuff.
It was 11:00 before I got home last night. I had to walk the last 50 yards because I got stuck in the road. At least I was right in front of the house, and I had a flashlight in the car. My feet got cold, but otherwise, it wasn't bad. I didn't have to wade through any drifts.
I made some split pea soup this morning. It is so good. I always thought it looked awful, but it is very tasty. I'm going to take some to work for my lunch tomorrow. I made some more lemon bars this afternoon. Turned out much better than the ones from last Saturday. These were delicious.
I also made a small rag quilted table runner this afternoon. I didn't take a picture of it yet because I need to wash it a couple of more times to get more of the frayed look going.
And I have learn how to do a couple of things with my new camera. I know this doesn't sound like much, but when I got it, I read just enough to figure out how to charge the battery, turn it on, shoot, and upload to my computer. This week I have learned how to delete shots and how to take movies. My other camera would take movies, too, but I haven't figured out how to do it yet. My hubby accidently took a couple one day when he borrowed the camera and got it set wrong. It was pretty funny!
It was already -2 an hour ago. It is going to be cold here in the morning! At least I don't have to be at work until 11:00. I have a heavy, downfilled winter coat. I'm getting a lot of use out of if this year. At least my body stays warm. I have insulated boots, too, but I haven't gotten them out yet. They would be too warm to work in, although most days I wear two or three shirts and/or a fleece jacket. With the cake counter being just inside the door, it is hard to stay warm and work.
It was late before I got to bed last night, so I'm going to turn in early tonight. I was watching the football game, but I was rooting for the Eagles, so I gave up a half time. One of the Eagles players played for the MU Tigers last year and is having a good rookie year. He is exciting to watch.
