That is a beautiful mental image.
DH and I are just hanging around the house this weekend. I will be glad when it warms up & the snow melts. I am ready to get out doors to play.

Glad you liked it...I caught her on foodgawker. It's snowing again here. A two-hour delay for school--it was nice having the kids home longer this morning though. And also--praying for your sis...Read a story about butterflies & prayer today to the kids. My daughter said that when you pray, God wraps his hands around you like a chrysalis and there your heart can change. I thought that was a beautiful mental picture... May your sister feel his hands around her!

Hope you are right. So far they haven't contacted his current employer. They are supporting him in this and will give him a good recommendation. They know he wants to be closer to his elderly parents and other family. They said although they understand they would hate to see him go. I guess time will tell. We are having another snowy day here. The second snow storm in the past few days. I have forgotten what the ground looks like.

I've always found it to be that if they are not interested in hiring you, you will get a rejection letter right away. If their interested, it takes a while for them to check references and such. Keep your fingers crossed.

Hey Marty, sorry to hear about DH job interview. I was praying that it would come through for the both of you.

And thank you everyone for the welcome!

And this is too early to say what I have done today. I just got started. LOL

We got more snow yesterday & supposed to get up to 8 inches more tonight thru tomorrow.

The stress level is dropping somewhat. Since DH didn't hear anything by yesterday from the interview he had Tues., we are thinking he has been passed over for the job. One of the last questions they asked him was how old are you. Hmmm, wonder if the fact that he is almost 58 made a difference.

We are just staying in out of the cold today.

Somehow I didn't see the Feb. chat forum. Good to see you all here. Net congratulations! And Lisa--that machine sounds great! EJ welcome! Anyone thinking about seeds in all this snow? The kids have been home from school with so many snow days lately, I haven't been getting a whole lot other stuff done. Another storm is due to come this next week supposedly.

Welcome EJHEINRICH1 ! We still don't know if DH will get the job. The waiting to hear is the worst part. I have already started packing things I can do without. Glad you have your move behind you & are back on line.

Hi everyone!
I am new here and I just made a big move. Not fun and I am glad it is over with. LOL. I started to pack the knick nacks as soon as I thought there might be a move. And I was sure glad I did.
Anyway I just thought I would say HI and I am unpacking instead of packing.

This is a 3 interview process. He made it through the 2nd last night. Now we are waiting to see if he gets called for a 3rd. They did tell him they would let him know either way about the job. It is the not knowing that is killer! If I knew we would be moving 1,600 miles I could be doing stuff to get ready.

We were too snowed in to get to church too! It was kind of fun to "do church" at home - almost wish it happened more often!
I was very glad to have stocked up on salad stuff before the snow started. Every year we say we are going to build a green house so we can have home grown greens all year, but it hasn't happened yet.

I am still snowed in so did not go to church. I listened to good music and the Bible on tape (not buying CDs as long as the tapes keep working).

I did dishes (no dishwasher) and added some bleach because a sponge smelled soured, then made raisin apple cinnamon oatmeal and tea for a late breakfast.

Worked on updating a support list for one of my teams and listened to FlyLady on Blog Talk Radio.

Watched Sarah Palin's tea party convention speech on C-Span.

Now I'm about to put away the dishes that have dried in the dish drainer, then put a ham in one crockpot, and cubed steaks in the other for beef stew.

After those get started I'll clean out the fridge, and do dishes from the fridge and from making the two crock pot dishes.

For supper I'm having leftover homemade spaghetti sauce over pasta, it turned out really good with tomatos, black olives, garlic, onion, green pepper, mushrooms, and 93% ground beef in it. Yum! Side of fresh cooked cauliflower and broccoli, and green salad with Italian onions and olives, homemade Italian oil & vinegar dressing, with garlic toast.

I'll also be working to shovel out my car, 15 mins at a time before dark, I'm getting SparkPoints for the shoveling!

And am doing FlyLady decluttering of the bedroom, 15 mins every hour OR every other hour.

I'm also prepping veggies today so they are ready to eat in the fridge, and making a big green salad with Romaine and green leaf, also tabouli salad with curly parsley, guacamole as the avocados are ripe and I have cilantro, and albacore tuna salad. I got a very nice head of Nappa cabbage, so will make that into a Ramen noodle/cabbage salad with sunflower seeds and broccoli with balsamic vinegar.

The stew and ham are heavier so later tonight I'm going to make chicken veggie crock pot soup for the upcoming week. I don't put any rice noodles, or potatos in it until the day I actually reheat it to eat it, so each time I have it it's a little different because I changed it up from the day before.

I'll make potato ham chowder crockpot soup on Monday with some of the leftover ham, and split pea with ham later in the week, probably Thurs since that's grocery day, and freeze the rest of the ham.

So by tomorrow night I'll have a week's+ worth of homemade food ready, with all the cooking and cleaning up already done, yippee! A full day!

Will be all set, plenty of healthy stuff and sides! We are supposed to get with Round 2 of winter weather on Tuesday. Not 3.5 ft this time. Less snow but there will probably still be road closures and power outages like there were this time.

Today would have been a good day for soup here. We have about 2" of new snow today. It was above freezing or it would have amounted to more. DH and I went to a Friday fruit & vegetable sale at a local building supply store today. They do this a few times a year. Our fridge & pantry are full.

That new quilting machine is exciting!
One of our local orchards is clearing out their cold storage, so I actually have been canning this week. They are selling 40 pound boxes of apples for $5! Making applesauce for my grandson - he is eating such things now and it is good to not have to buy babyfood!

February is a month where I will be using the foods I've put up previously. I am in the midwest and the growing season is dormant. My goal is to eat from my freezer and pantry and hopefully use most of what I have by the time my new CSA season begins. This was my first year with planning ahead so I'm eager to see how I've done.

Hi all, just starting up a February chat. Please use this to post questions, achievements or anything here.

With winter in full swing here, canning has been put on the back burner. However, I have found a new love, quilting. I am working on a Civil War Block of the Month Quilt, to be finished in Dec of this year, to commemorate the 150 anniv of the Civil War. Also purchased a used Pfaff quilting machine at a great price, hardly used.
