Okay, Enough Snow Already! And Giveaway Reminder

Collector's Choice Restaurant's Deck Today...........

"Storm Watch 2012!"
Okay Really? Enough already! I must have 14 inches of Snow some places in my yard! This is day,,,,,errrr, lemme see,,,Day 6 of Snow here!  And we live in Western Washington, NOT Minnesota! (I heard it was actually quite NICE today in Minnesota, thanks to one of my FB friends!)

I only made it out today because I was traveling with my son  and his girlfriend in the 4x4. This may be a record if not CLOSE and it's still coming down!

We managed to get out for a BIT today, get a few "Provisions"-fire logs for me,,,,,the power's gone out a couple of times and  we had breakfast at Collector's Choice-one of my "Fav's" where I ran into my Joyworks co-worker Kim and her Hubbs, escaping their house-no power. I had to go out on their deck and take a quick pic,,,,(No doggie tracks all over the Snow, like at my house!)

I worked on a few projects while snowed in, and did a LOT more cooking than I generally do,,,,,,Including some stew and some Chicken Pot Pies,,,,,,,,,most for the freezer, but some for right now. I also had fun making this "Faux Cake." I THINK it was better than making a REAL one that I may just have devoured,,,,,,,,,,,

Faux Cake........

Don't forget to enter my Giveaway Below,,,,IF you can't leave a comment, send me an email, it'll count too,,,I've been having some problems with my Comments.  Trying to figure it out and if YOU have any suggestions on how to fix it!, let me know!

Okay,,,,,going to go build a fire,,,,before the lites go out again!

Stay Warm, Stay Safe, and Stay Healthy!
(My families "health scare" turned out to be just that,,,,,,,a "scare." for which I am VERY thankful!)

Grateful Hugs, Love and Warm "Bus" on the Cheek!


  1. Can't believe the weather you are having. I live in Bonney Lake, WA, but at this moment am sitting in a condo in Kona, Hawaii. won't be going home til Sunday. I guess we'll miss all the excitement. Oh, darn! Any way, hang in there. I saw you at a vintage show in Snohomish and LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your projects.

  2. We are just now here in Ohio getting it good only maybe 3 inches but came down fast I would love to be entered in the giveaway would be a late birthday present for me!!!!

  3. Oh Shell-- all that snow!! It is my biggest fear-- I hate snow. If I did not have to go out in it to go to work-- then maybe I would not mind do much! I do think a heavy snowfall is beautiful--- but then I worry about the power going off. I hate that too- hate sitting in the dark- hate to be cold--- do we are back to me hating the snow again!!

    Stay safe-- and warm my friend--

  4. Shell- I forgot to tell you that your faux cake is absolutely incredible!!!!

  5. Shell,
    You have all Minnesota's snow. We have only a dusting. Tomorrow we go to Baltimore to check out a clinical trial for Jud and then we go to Mesa. How crazy is that! I hardly knew how to pack. It is a good thing I am not going to Snohomish, too!
    Love that cake. Want that cake.
    Hugs and greedy bus on the cheek,

  6. Love your creative work.....beautiful!!

  7. LOVE this cake! It is beyond fabulous!
