Snow Day

Hey everyone...Today I have a "snow day" it hasn't suddendly started snowing in San Diego, but Gene and I were scheduled to fly to Washington D.C. this morning and they are certainly having more than their fair share of the white stuff. This will be our first visit to our capitol and we have great timing. Who would believe that they would have such a storm???? We have our long woolies packed and are ready to go....We have a new flight tomorrow....

...and so I have a "free" day! I have spent the last 2 weeks burning the midnight oil to get projects done, patterns made and orders shipped....Whew...and then although there is still more of that to do..I am on vacation!!!!

My friend, Renee has been after me to become a blogger...and I have drug my heels. Computers and I are not all that friendly. I love e-mail and printing photos...but beyond that I am a computer dud. So, bear with me as I try to figure all this out. So many of you have wonderful blogs and great photos on them!!!! I will have to start taking photos of everything.
