Dud or Whopper ?

If you had asked me last evening after listening to the weather weenies I would have said that the storm had the makings of a whopper, but low and behold tonite the six o'clock news said we (Lehigh Valley) had been down graded to a Winter Weather Advisory. This was after this morning we were under a Winter Storm Warning. So, while I do believe that March is going out like a lion, it's not a lion that we can't handle and I proclaim it's a Dud!! Let's all hope that this is the end of the snow until Dec.2011, say the 24th or 25th!! It does sound like our friends in the New England area will get the worst of this storm. Let's pray that it's a Dud for them as well. Have a good evening friends.

It's Back

I think Old Lady Winter came back. Had three inches of snow on the ground at 8:00 a.m. and it has been sleeting, raining snowing off and on all day. Only about 33 degrees. Tonite, it all changes to snow and we are expected to get a coating to 2 inches. It just won't let go of us. It was a good bad to stay put and work on our books. Take inventory out, put inventory in. Pay sales tax and get get everything ready to send off to the accountant. Yes, I'm one of those who waits and waits. LOL. Just noticed that the wind is picking up a bit, great we will probably loose power!! Have a good evening folks.

Spring? What Spring?

Well this morning at 5:45 a.m. it was snowing to beat the bands, then rain, then sleet, then snow again. Delayed school openings not too far from us, oh my. Even the ducks are ticked off, I guess they thought they were heading outside today, seeing as it was Spring!! Township truck went by a short while ago, spreading salt!! And the weather weenies say we can expect more of this on Wednesday!! Well, let's hope between today and Wednesday's weather this will be our Onion snow and then we are done. I will not shovel anymore snow. How's that for showing them who's boss!! LOL. I was reminded by a very dear friend that it was time to change my header picture. She must have been reading my mind. That should happen in the next few days, I want the sun to be out before I go showing you early Spring at Ginnysyard. Have a great day friends.

Happy Spring

Well, it's offical. Spring is here, the clock just turned over to 7:21 p.m. and in my part of the world it is SPRING. Boy, what a Winter, glad that it is behind us and if it is not for you yet, I'm sending Spring Wishes your way. Hope everyone has/is enjoying their weekend. Have a good evening

Full Worm Moon

Don't forget to take time out of your busy evening and check out the Full Worm Moon tonight. It is called the Worm Moon because, as the Sun increasingly warms the soil, earthworms become active and their castings (excrement) begin to appear. Also, NASA is calling it the SUPER Moon because it is about 14% bigger and 30% brighter then normal. This has not happened since 1993 and won't happen again for another 29 years. Have a great evening.

Been Busy Doing Stuff

Not sure where the first half of this month went. I have been busy with my Mon-Fri. job in the constrution business. Things are picking up a bit, so I need to be on board with that. Also, show season is picking up. We have had shows in January and February, of which we had not had in the past, so that is a good thing. And this past weekend we had a two day show. We were very happy that the rain had stopped by the time we needed to load in on Friday and that the rest of the weekend was rain free. Shows take alot out of people, pack your truck, load into the venue, set-up, selling (hopefully), break down, pack the van and then unload the van. Very much I'm guessing the same as if I had a retail store that I needed to prepare for customers, except I don't get to stay put!! But, we are very happy that we do have customers in today's economy when there is so much I'm sure that they could spend their money on. I have been reading everyone's blogs about their Spring decorating/events, I just didn't have time to post on my own blog, but I did comment on many of yours. Need to get in gear and get some things done. Hope everyone has a great Monday.The above picture is where we set-up this past weekend.

In Like A Lamb

Well, March rolled in like a lamb. And, boy was it ever nice out today. Sun shining bright, birds singing, I even stood outside on the jobsite and talked a while with my people. Did you know I had people? That's what I call the sub-contractors that work with me, MY PEOPLE. We are headed out tomorrow to meet up with a couple of other antique dealer friends to do a little shopping, thank goodness we don't deal in too much of the same thing, or their could be trouble, LOL. Hope everyone is enjoying their evening and doing what makes you happy. Almost forgot, I picked up Country Sampler's Home Tour Edition 2011, only just started going through it, and I like what I see. Take Care
