10" They Say!

It has been snowing for almost 16 hours now-Big News here in NC! Actually for the past several hours, I think it has been sleet on top of the snow.
It was absolutely beautiful at sunrise as the snow had stuck to every little thing-now the wind has picked up just a bit so some of it is blowing around.
Ethan was going to come home this weekend but is staying in Raleigh-hope he and Ashley get out and go for a walk in Pullen Park-I know it will be beautiful over there. I believe Raleigh is getting several inches as well. No labor force to roll the giant snowballs to make another igloo-that may be a one of a kind for quite a while.
Some many possibilities of things to do on a snow day.....
Clean the house...yuk!
Clean out the refrigerator...yuk!
Work on taxes (which are already getting late for FAFSA)...yuk!
Bake cranberry nut bread (using the cranberries still in the frige from Christmas)...possibility..
Make homemade vegetable soup...a must...
Hit the jewelry table to make projects promised.....possibility...
Hit the jewelry table to create the ideas that are ALWAYS popping in and out of my head...possibility
Start the decorative birdhouse I want to donate to the Habitat for Humanity/Arts council silent auction " coming up in March....maybe tomorrow....
Clean my own beadroom...yuk!
Organize my craft "corner" in the basement....nah!....not today anyway...
Clean off the cabinet / junk collection location in the laundry room so it will be readly available for useful kitchen "overstock".....maybe tomorrow...
Watch a good movie....later!
Start a new book....possibility later....
Laundry... no brainer!
Create the valentine banner I want to make to hang along our mantle...possibility...
Thats enough for now!
Wow, I've been watching all the local birds hitting the feeder this morning, the sparrows, cardinals, titmouses, chickadees, then SUDDENLY a HUGE flock of blackbirds swarmed in and are intimidating all the other birds including the usual "big shots"-the bluejays! Bird patrol just got up (Randy) so he is tapping on the window, opening the door, and generally staying on top of allowing only the proper birds to eat at the feeder (ha,ha,ha).
Miss Rena just got up now and looked out and said "....hmmm, we got enough.."....
More to follow later today with what I ACUTUALLY accomplished today......
