The Great Snow-tastrophe of 2016

Snow much Snow!!

Wowsers! We definitely got hit with some serious snowage.

I got some crazy pictures of the Blizzardage.

11 am Saturday-


4pm Saturday-


That is soooome snow!

Because I was stuck inside…obviously… I ended up doing some studying for one of the book series I’m writing.
…More on that in another post…

Aaaaand I finally figured out the type of medium I want to use for my illustrations. Yay!!! Course, there’s only one prob, I actually haven’t used any of the art mediums I want to use.  So now I just have to figure out if I can do it. Lol

I also decided it was high time to pick up the previously mentioned book series, finish my edits, and send it off to my wonderful editor friend who helps me with my grammatical challenges….I have a lot of those.  :/
She probably cringes every time she reads any of my blogs…..Sorry Wooly Gal, I’m really Not trying to make you go nutsy cuckoo.  😮  🙂

I also spent time Attempting… of course every time I sat down, I was pulled away to do something else…to write some blog posts for next week. I really want to try and do one blog post Mon-Fri for my Thoughts and Stories blogs….we’ll see how long I can keep the pace up and not go cray.  😀

As per usual, I also did a ton of boring stuff like cooking, dishes, laundry, and cleaning. Bleh!!

But, all in all it was a nice and relaxing weekend. Thank you Snow-partay of 2016 you rocked! 😀

Shovels, Shovels, Everywhere…Not!


Okay, so we are preparing for snowmageddon here in Pa or so everyone says. Ve shall Zee vat happenz… Lol

But either way, our snow shovels have seen better days, like they needed to be taken out back and put out of their misery a loooong time ago. Literally, our one shovel we got back in the snowmageddon of ’96. We had to walk thru the 5 foot snow drifts to a general store in our town to buy a shovel cause we didn’t own any. So, I am making the Extremely hard decision that it is Finally time to put our old shovel down the garbage hole.

We had a small service for the shovel and drove off to Walmart. We walked through the doors and were immediately inundated with all things snow related. Sidewalk salt? They had it by the bucketful. Hats, gloves, scarfs? There was a bin that covered that. Ice scrapers, windshield wiper fluid? Pallets full.

Of course there had to be a Ton of shovels riiiiiiight? Wrong.

No shovels. Anywhere.

I asked a sales associate if they could point me in the direction of the shovels. She pointed me to lawn and garden, explaining that if there were any left they were outside to the right as soon as you get through the door. But she warned me that the last time she checked there were only 2 left. What????

So, we turned the corner and low and behold there were NO shovels left!!!! Ok, I take that back, there Were 2.

There hanging in their spot were 2 tiny kids shovels. Yup, that’s just what I need to shovel out from Snowmageddon!! Riiiiiight! Not!

So, here I sit without a shovel.

A shovel, a shovel, my kingdom for a shovel!

P.S.- Update on the shovel sitch: I found a shovel at Kmart. They had a bazillion shovels!! They cost an arm and a leg, but now at least I can shovel our driveway with my incredibly expensive Shovel of Awesomeness!!!

Another Weird Weather Post…


I was scrolling thru my photos this AM and discovered this beauty that I had forgotten about. We had a traumatic case of Fog-itis hit our town a couple of weeks ago. I forgot to post about it, so I’m postin now. Lol

Literally the fog was so thick that you could only see about a foot or two in front of you clearly. It was nutsy cuckoo. We do Not get fog like this around here, we don’t live on the lochs in Scotland….Scooby-Doo reference. 😉

This was Pea Soup Fog, this view is from the sidewalk on our cul de sac. All you could see were hazy shapes and dim lights.

The Randomkids were going to a library event that evening. Let’s just say this chicken of the foggie sea turned around after about two blocks and four close calls with parked cars and moving ones too.

I just got an email from a friend that we are now expecting 8-10″ of snow by the weekend.
Gotta love this awesome weather folks. 🙂

Hmmmm, maybe I should just move to Florida…only have to watch out for hurricanes, stingrays, alligators, escaped jungle snakes, and large cockroaches.
Well, that’s a Nopefish. Guess I’ll just enjoy the Wheel of Ridiculous Weather. Spin, spin, spin! Lol

Random Resolutions for the New Year…

2015 resolutions

Well, it’s that time of year again.

The time when we all look back on our year, see all the Nothing that we did with our lives, and make promises, that we’ll never keep, to change it all next year.

As in…”I’m gonna really Accomplish something this year!”

Well, I’m here to say that as I look back at my 2015 year, I actually accomplished a ton of stuff this year. 😮

I’ve actually made it through 1/2 of a very successful homeschool year with my senior and junior high kiddo.

I joined with some homeschool friends to create a new family led co-op and we finished half of our year successfully without any major incidents and a whole lot of fun! 😀

I started a new career in illustration and writing.

I attended my first writers group and attend them monthly for their writers workshops.

And I made a bunch of new writing friends and we collaborated to create a writers group that meets weekly.

So, I guess I have really done a lot with my life this year!! 😀

Hooray for me, and no, I won’t be making any New Years Resolutions…I wouldn’t want to jinx myself. Lol

How about you?  Did your year stack up to be all that you thought it would be?

Will you be making any Random Resolutions for 2016?
