Not Quite So Wonderful
It has been snowing hard all night. We usually go to town to grocery shop on Tuesdays. We should have gone on Monday this week. We went in spite of the snow and made it all the way into the yard before getting stuck. We did have a bit of trouble in the lane but managed to make it. This is not as bad as it looks. Five minutes of shoveling and we were out, turned around and plugged in. It's supposed to go down to -28 tonight so the car has to be plugged in if we want to start it.I'm not sure why we would start it though, because I'm pretty sure we can no longer get down the lane. Still, it's incredibly beautiful and so silent.
I made a few more luggage tags. I found out that it's a great way to use up a lot of 4 inch orphan blocks that I have sitting around. I sew two together, line them, sew a bit of plastic to the lining for the name card (you could sew the name on the lining or just use a pen to write it on), interface and sew them together with a string of some sort at one corner. Turn them, add a bit of velcro and voila!
