Snowpocalypse

Yes, by all accounts, snowpocalypse is nigh!
Lest any of my faithful readers are concerned, I am relaxed, ready for whatever comes, and looking forward to a bit of mid-winter hibernation. A butternut squash and carmelized onion galette is baking in the oven and the house smells wonderfully.  There is also an offering to the gods for the coming precipitation as we really need it after a virtually dry and warm winter last year.  Seems to be a big boost for the economy, too.  The stores are mobbed and I will even be making a late evening trek to my market tonight. The festivities are due to begin tomorrow morning, but nothing dire may occur until after I have made the drive to Hyannis and back for a series of tests, and also paid a visit to my current pet sitting charge, my cute large gray friend, Khaos the cat.  I will have to try to get a photo of him tomorrow.  I will leave him some extra food and have also lined up one of his neighbors who can come in if I am not able to get there on the weekend.

So, the Kindle and cell phone will be fully charged, the sewing machine will work until the power goes out, and I have plenty of handsewing to be done. I have a brand new flourescent lantern that gives wonderful light, and there may be some napping under the down comforter, too. In case there is a prolonged power outage, I have a co-worker who lives close-by and he has a generator, so I can go there to get warm. 

I hope anyone else is in the path of "Nemo" will be safe and warm, and I will be looking forward to being shoveled out and venturing to see LM and Kristi on Sunday.

Bring on the adventure.

I love it that you "celebrate" rather than complain about the impending winter storm. I would be the same way....winter to me, means rest, and I would take advantage too. Enjoy, but be safe.

Hi Linda,
Morning brings the beginning of the winds and finds me preparing for my morning apptointments. Home by noon, I hope. All supplies are in the house in readiness.
Thanks for stopping by as always with your kind words!
