What a beautiful day to be a “shut-in!” Snow is a rare commodity in Virginia Beach and last night’s snow was epic for this neck of the woods. I kept the flood lights on, and watched it come down. It was like one of our typical N’Easters but white! Absolutely beautiful. I don’t believe I’ve ever seen snow come down with such fury before.
This day is the perfect excuse to stay in my PJ’s and work on the Build a LIne Challenge, which has been keeping me entertained since early January. We have another blog hop scheduled for Friday (stay tuned!), and I’m pretty certain most of the troops are hunkered down with pliers, wires, and glue, just like I’m doing this fine day.
For many of us, this challenge has taken us out of our comfort zones, but led us toward a new way of thinking. We are a chatty bunch and the interaction has been lively and fun. If one of us has a problem, we post a picture, and typically get several great answers, and a solution to our problem. How cool is that?
The challenge is sponsored by B’Sue Boutiques (http://www.bsueboutiques.com) and our mentor and gifted teacher Brenda Sue Lansdowne. She is AMAZING! I cannot even imagine trying to inspire our tribe. We are a fun bunch, and a few of us might just be a wee bit stubborn, and resistant to change! I know I was. Brenda has opened my eyes on so many levels–and that isn’t easy to do!
Today I’m trying to wrap up a few projects while gazing out of the windows at the beautiful snow. My animals are huddled beside me in the quiet warmth. I’ve got some cozy wool socks on, am about to make some hot chocolate, Nora Jones is playing in the background, and all is well in my world. It doesn’t get much better than this!
