a few hearts and tons of snow

I can't believe how much snow we got here in PA. When I woke up yesterday morning I couldn't believe the sight. We got about 22 inches. I went downstairs and looked out of my dining room window and could not believe what had happened. One of our flowering pear trees split apart and landed right on our pool deck. I ran upstairs woke up my hubby and quickly started checking out our other windows (nervously). There was another pear tree that split and broke off in 2 places- unbelievable. My hubby, my dad and my brother in law cleaned the tree off of the deck with a chainsaw. We were truly blessed because the tree stopped before hitting the pool. The railing held it and there was no damage (even the glass table it fell on didn't break). WOW! Thank you Lord.

The day seemed so long. I got a lot of cleaning and crafting done. I read some stories to my younger son and made some soup. My older son was outside from 9am until 6pm (he was exhausted, but had a wonderful time in the snow). I got most of my Trashy Swap stuff made and a few things for myself too. I made these salt dough hearts. I only painted them so far. I am still going to sand and I think even put some stain on them. I also sewed a few of these heart bowl fillers for my table bench in the dining room. That's all I have been doing lately. Hope everyone is having a relaxing weekend. Can't wait until Spring!! Love, Kim
