Anyway... back to the snow.
The front passed through last evening, with some heavy flurries overnight; and it got quite a bit colder. The first of the snow last night melted and then refroze, so we had some ice under it, but the drive to work really wasn't bad at all; they had obviously been out salting the roads early. And as long as it stops this afternoon and the roads are OK for the drive home, I'm good with it. It's blowing sideways right now. Funny... a little Ozarks blizzard.
I've been thinking I need to build some shelves downstairs in my studio area; like I don't have enough to do around the house already. But I have enough pots made right now (with many more to come) that I am actually running out of places to put them! That's a first for me... and very cool! I love it.

The mind is a funny thing. I seriously didn't know what I was looking at as that Schnauzer ran headlong toward me... and my brain was processing everything as fast as it could. If it really had been something dangerous, I would have been toast. That is not a comforting thought. I need to get out into the woods more often. I'm getting soft, and slow... just like any rabid groundhog in a little pink sweater would want me to be. Yup, I definitely need to get out more.

Our band played in Mountain Grove, Missouri last night, at a place called The Midway. Instead of doing Auld Lang Syne at the stroke of midnight, we played You Shook Me All Night Long by ACDC. I like that a lot better. As the night wore down, the lights came on and the party people eventually drifted out into the beautiful early morning hours of a new year. It was chilly out, and very windy, but this time of year if it's not sleeting or snowing on New Years eve, we consider ourselves fortunate. As we were tearing down our equipment and getting ready to load out, I picked up this party hat and put it on to commemorate the event. I had Pam take a picture on my phone to send to all of my friends and family... most of which were probably asleep (ha). It's Sunday morning, January 1, 2012... and as I sit here at the computer, in my jammies ;) I have a simple hope that this new year will be a healthy, happy and prosperous one for everybody. I have some big ideas for the year ahead of us. I guess I better get to it! Happy New Year everyone!
