What'da Think Mr. Groundhog

I sincerely hope all of you are safe and secure in  your "nests" tonight.   We are getting ready for 6 to 8 hours of hard freezing rain.  I would take the 2 feet of snow without question...that's happening about 100 northeast of Chardon.   I hope we don't loose power....we are as ready as we can be...the fish will have the battery power back up heater and air tank..... Mia, Max, Ming and Lily will sleep through it all...it's that Tim and Carol I'm not so sure about. LOL!
It's been a month since I posted and we had some fun in January.  I had mentioned last blog we were going to a Medieval Dinner....well that was fun!!!  Tim and I won best dressed couple by the King and Queen.  We won a nights stay at the Riders Inn (where the dinner was)  and a bottle of  mead "Honey Wine".  I think we look really dorky in this picture.  Tim looks like he swallowed a frog and I looked totally p.o'ed that he swallowed the darn frog.  Good time had by all.
    One of my favorite museums in Cleveland is the Western Reserve Historical Society.  On January 22 "Somewhere in Time Party" took place to benefit the museum.  When I received a letter asking for a donation to the !970's theme dinner auction.  I knew I had to make a day of the dead doll....(slap me on the head I didn't take a picture of him).   Anyway, he is like the "Peace" doll over at Faern-Laega Art Dolls .  I was assured on Monday that he found  a very good  new home.
 I have started  Dixie Redmond's Izannah Walker doll workshop.  I have never clay sculpted before and it is  a real challenge.  I will be learning patience....I have none  by the way.
I would just like to take a second and remind everyone to keep batteries in your smoke detectors....really  the detector will only do their job and save our lives if  the batteries are in the detector.   One early morning 3 weeks ago..our neighbor's house caught on fire and everyone made it out EXCEPT for the father...his 15 year old stepson tried to go back in for his step-dad who was in the basement....the fire was too far along.  Check your batteries right now...please!!!   And watch those candles and space heaters... we have an Edenpure and love it!
The wind is starting to pick up  and the roof is creaking...so I better sign off.   Take care and be safe everyone!
Until next time!

  1. Hi Carol...love the outfits..I really do...thanks for sharing.I am so sorry to hear about your neighbor. My husband's workshop burned Nov 27, 2010, along with his car that was parked next to it. That was the first time in my life that my knees were shaking and I thought I could not stand. Set up a day, holiday, birthday, Jan 1 or something to remind you to replace the batteries. Also I just read on a new smoke detector I bought...change the unit out every 10 years and have more than one in your house. I am replacing all of mine with the unit that detects a smoldering fire. I live in South GA and cannot imagine what all of you are going through up north. Hang in there, spring is on the way.
