mary Jo? Where is 'the valley?'

This is a posting by Mary Jo G.  Had to put my question in there hoping she'll respond.  We're farther north than she is, I know, and we're just now having cold enough weather to snow.

MaryJO:
Four days ago it was 56 and sunny.  All of the flowers were in bloom.  We had a hard freeze overnight and I put the yard to bed.  The high that day was 34.  Then it began to snow.  We now have 8" and 275 auto accidents in this valley.  The first snow seems to bring out the worst.  I'm staying in and enjoying the new quilt room.  Our high for the next few days will be 25 and the low 9 degrees.

When all was put in its proper place upstairs, I found 24+ UFO's.  Stopped counting then, and started evaluating.  Several are destined to become Christmas gifts. Some are old and going to charity.  Finished two of them this past week and am working on the third.  It is a crazy quilted piece that is becoming a tote bag.  Should finish it today.  Am debating whether or not to piece the handles...  Have plenty of the lining which was also the focus fabric.  It is a bright spring green paisley with pinks, blues and yellows.  

The new furnace is working well.  I'm happy with the two cats, NPR and a hot cup of tea upstairs. Certainly have enough to keep me busy.   Have purchased baby monitors and need to set them up so I can hear the doorbell should anyone come.  The room had little use before.  Grandkids stayed there when visiting in the summer.  John's library was up there.  But the room was too cold to enjoy.  Nice change now.  Still need to finish the big ironing board and organize the wool.  

Will take the camera up with me and post some pics of it all.

Tell MJ to go to Home Depot and buy a remote doorbell. That's what we did when we needed to hear the bell and Gus wouldn't bark at it. You put the sending unit on the downstairs unit and plug the receiver in upstairs. Works like a charm.


I can read the site, but cannot post.
