What else is there to talk about besides this weather?
I am so wanting a nice warm day. I knew this was a bad winter, and now they say we’re up to second in the amount of snow we’ve gotten so far, second only to the blizzard of ‘78. I sure remember that one.
There is one consolation this time as we’ve never lost our electricity. It is a good time to sit inside and look out the window. The sun does make it warmer inside when it shines.
We all like to complain about this, but we need to step back and count our blessings. We have plenty of food to eat, we have a roof over our heads, we have friends who check up on us to see if we are alright, and I could count many, many more things we have. I have plenty of fabric to work on so that is keeping my sanity.
There are some dates that have crept up on Extension Homemakers, so first I will remind you that if you’ve never been to Home and Family and want to apply for the First Timer award, you need to get your application in as soon as possible. There are forms for you to fill out at the Extension Office. If you want a first hand report of how much fun you can have, just talk to Paulette Duerstock who was a winner last year.
Another award, if you used to go to Home and Family and haven’t been there lately, you might like to apply for the “I Want to Go Back” award which will be given to someone who has been in the past but for some reason hasn’t been there for awhile.
