Drink Up!

I should start drinking because we got NO snow last night. That 100% chance of snow materialized into NOTHING. I should have known. Meteorology is all voodoo anyway.

Maybe Rebel is right. May February 10 is the big day. It worked last year. Right before we landed in Jersey they got a big snow storm, and we left Texass on February 14.

Instead of showing you pictures of me and the Chunk enjoying our sleds and frolicking in the snow, you get an advertisement.

See? Aren't you now bitter we didn't get any snow too?

I spent all day Sunday working on a measly three new glasses for my Etsy shop.

I really like the Socktail ones the best...

I also finished another Knit, Drink & Be Merry one.

(The first one went to Merrymom as part of the grand K.A.Y.E. Prize).

But what irks me, is that one took for-EVER to make. And as I'm finishing it up, I spy a small chip at the base of the glass.

D'oh!

Ah well, live and learn. They are fun to make.

We'll see how well these do. If they do good, I'll think about investing in the supplies to offer more than just three at a time.

Love the glasses! We got all of your snow! Luckily I can work from home because I'm not getting anywhere on these roads today! Have a good one!

Yeah, I woke up to misty rain this morning as well. I'm convinced we aren't going to have a real winter this year.

Yeah, we got no snow too. I actually ran to the window this morning to look at the snow and NOTHING.

The glasses look great!

Haha, sucka! Guess what it's doing in the fine state of Ohio? That's right, SNOWING. But, it's not nearly enough to go sledding in.

I dig the glasses.

I'm very bitter, words cannot explain. The only good thing that came from this, is that alternative side of the street parking was suspended today, so I didn't have to move my car out of the cozy spot, that I knew was wrong last night when I parked it. BTW, I've been holding for a 1/2hr now to make an appt for my ahem, you fill in the blank.

The glasses are cute. Not that drink, so I wouldn't actually get any use out of them. Maybe you could store project ends in it as a decoration. lol

Dontcha love how absolute, 100% chance turns into zip? Maybe you can call into work and tell them there's a 100% chance you'll be there and just not show up. ;)

Sorry about the no snow....Bummer. No I'm not bitter about the asvertising. You don't do a hard sell. I like the socktail that is pretty clever. Love, Mom

The glassses look great. And we got a whole 2 inches of snow here. Not enough to do anything fun with. Just enough that I have to brush off the car and shovel the path. Damn.

I wanted to wake up and find out things were closed but no. No snow. I was not real surprised because that's the way it goes around here. But the February thing just might have some merit. Most of our big snowstorms have come in Feb. But I don't want to wait that long.

I was so looking forward to see photos of you and your blue sled.
Oh well time well spent, the glasses look great.

Oh dang! Well, I hope it you do get snow before February... enough to give you a snow day.

Stock up on Hot Cocoa & Baileys so you'll be ready when it does hit.

When I was outside last night calf deep in the snow and trying to clear a place for hubby to park, I was thinking of you :).

Love the etched glasses. Socktail :). Very funny!

(Juice is the preferred drink!)
