Hunkering Down

Fire going in the wood burner... check.
Christmas lights on... check.
Orangette's Peppermint Bark in the Fridge... check.
Pot roast in the oven... check.
Movies in the DVD player... check.

12-15inches of snow coming over the next few hours... CHECK!!!

I am sure you have heard, the NorthEast is getting hit with some snow. The conservative forcast for our area is 12-15inches by 10pm tonight. I spent the morning running to get the stuff for peppermint bark, and the pot roast is in the oven now, so I think we have everything we need for a toasty night in.

I hope you are staying warm where you are!!

here too. :-) just substitute homemade candied orange peel for peppermint bark, and nacho supplies for pot roast. Oh, and add in an excellent knitting project in the works. Perfectly well prepared for the storm, first flakes fell about an hour ago, and we're all settling in for a wonderfully cozy evening. Enjoy!

Hey Kerry,
Here in the midwest we are hunkering down for a blizzard tomorrow. It is heading your way next. One of myboys has made it home the other one hasn't yet. He is staying at my nrothers right now. At least he is safe and I don't have to worry.
Stay warm.

Kerry said...

OH The weather outside is frightful, but the fire is so delightful... as long as you love me so... let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!!!
