SNOW, The New 4-Letter Word, Dolly's New Hat


I don't have much to show you all, sorry, just an update on what has been going on around here. Not much and personally if you clicked right off this page I wouldn't blame you.

Since my grandson's birthday we have had warmer weather and it melted tons of snow. You could see everyone was pretty happy to see it gone......then, another snow storm was on its way and late Tuesday evening it started and was blizzard-like by Wednesday. It snowed all day, we got 6-8 inches along with the blowing and drifting. There was a terrible accident on the Ohio Turnpike which is about 30 minutes from here. It involved about 50 vehicles, cars and semi-trucks. 3 people were killed. A highway patrolman was pinned between 2 vehicles while he was trying to help an accident victim. His legs were seriously injured. He was taken to the hospital. I sat around waiting, dreading that it could be my brother because it happened in the afternoon and he was working that day. Relief washed all over me when I found out it wasn't him, but how can you not feel bad too, knowing someone is suffering. Last word is that he is still in serious, but stable condition. He is a young man, in his late 20's. He probably has a wife and small children.

I was right in the middle of baking up some Toll House cookie bars while all this stuff was going on. I made 3 batches of treats for the 3 people who did random acts of kindness doing snow removal for me. Last I heard we have had over 80 inches of snow. That is a lotta snow folks. I walked across the road and gave Pete his cookies, and then next door to give Jeremy his. I called Danny and told him to come get his and if he couldn't make it I would venture to where he lives and bring them. He told me not to get out in this mess. Well, he better get here soon or his cookies will be history. I have already peeled back the Press & Seal to grab 2 and gobbled them right up. Yummy!


As far as crocheting, I did start a baby blanket which is now history. I am going to frog it, I just didn't like how the ripple was turning out. And, if you want to see what one of the colors is that I started out with, well then check out my Waldorf dolly with the new hot pink little pom pom hat. I grabbed up that blanket yarn and a circular knitting needle and started what I intended to be a preemie hat. I made the mistake of showing it to dolly. She snatched that hat out of my hands faster than lightening. She doesn't care if she has red hair and should be wearing complimentary colors of blue or green. If she likes it and it fits then it is hers, much like if it is a crumb and it hits the floor it belongs to the dogs, lol. Guess dolly has a new hat. The sweater was made a year or so ago. I loved making it and made several at the time. Sometimes it is comforting to just do a few small and quick projects.

I will finish up here with a gripe.....WINDOWS! There will be a new upgrade coming in April and they will no longer have support for the Windows I have on my pc. How sweet of them to suggest that a person buy a new pc. They must think we are all made of $. You can upgrade, I tried that from the notice they sent, but it informed me that in my region of the country it was not available. WHAT! I live in Northwest Ohio! Oh forgive me, I forgot. I guess with all this snow we are now considered living in Alaska. Is it safe to say GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR now instead of BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!

So what are your views on this new Windows thing? I am on my 2nd pc. I don't want to lose all I have on here. Any suggestions how I can copy it all and save it just in case. I am way too lazy to start doing a search when I have blogger buddies who make more sense.   Stay safe, stay warm, I am outta here!

  1. Time to get a Mac! They can transfer all your data and files to it. You will be so happy. I recommend a MacBook Pro. That way you can use your computer in a recliner and not worry about having to go in an unheated room to compute. Love the pink hat, it looks GREAT on red hair and with the neon orange.. that dolly is stylin'! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

    1. Thank you so much Teresa for the info and advice. I will seriously look into it and soon. I wish I lived close to you. I am sure there is so much I could learn from you when it comes to all this. I have had a pc for around 10 years, like I said this is my second one. My girls bought me an Apple iPad for Christmas and I love it, but I don't do posts on it even though I can read blogs and do a ton of other things. Even at this age we are still learning :)

    1. Winter seems to really have it in for us this season. Only good thing is the change to daylight savings time and that even has everyone dragging their heels. By the time we get use to it then it is time to set the clocks back again, lol.

  3. Oh my gosh Susanne - more snow? I'm getting real tired of Winter myself - can't wait for Spring to get here. That was nice of you to bake cookies for the people that helped you. I'm sure they appreciate that. Your little dolly looks so cute with her new hat. I haven't heard about the Windows stuff - I guess I'll have to wait and see what happens. Have a good day. :)

    1. I saw the snow video you made. I know people all around us are dealing with the same issues of snow. I guess I can safely say we are all tired of it. I said last fall that if we get as much snow as we got rain that we would be having one heck of a winter. Guess I hit the nail right on the head with that comment.

  4. That is just terrible, the Windows thing, that is. As to how to go about saving things, the last time I had to do it, I made back-up discs, but they didn't work. So I actually had to go back to the notes I had made. I'm sure I ended up losing some stuff, but at least I was able to find all my favorite blogs again...

    1. I know, you are so right. I hate all this stuff with trying to save things although I know it needs to be done or all is lost. Sometimes it takes me forever to figure things out and I have to hope that I don't mess things up in the process.

    1. I have been reading blogs on my iPad, but have yet to post anything. I just find myself getting annoyed with that touch screen key pad and find myself back tracking more than accomplishing anything. Maybe I will graduate and not be such a baby about all this. My pc is getting slower and I think if I remove some of the downloads and pictures in my files that might help a lot. Only time will tell, but I do need to get a newer model.
