Bliss

Although I'm not certain my kids are even familiar with the word "bliss", I am quite positive that they would have applied it to describe today given the chance. They had a snow day. Can you believe it? Perhaps the roads were slippery this morning in the far reaches of our school district, I won't question that, but good golly, it was a beautiful day, with temperatures above freezing and all that fresh glorious snow blanketing the outdoors. By the time I was drinking my first coffee the roads were clear in front of our place, which is saying something considering we live in a major snow belt! So I personally believe the school officials needed a day off and calling a snow day was the quickest way of achieving it.


I went to work today. Officially I was supposed to be unemployed as of last Friday because of this impending move and my having given notice already. Fortunately for me, Bill and Hays haven't found a replacement yet and so welcomed me back. That, unfortunately, may change quite quickly. Tonight a young woman stopped by to enquire about the job. She even has sewing experience. Good for Bill and Hays, not so good for me. All I can hope for is that our house sells fast. Whatever happens I probably have a job until the end of the week, at the very least. That's fine by me.


Guess what!? Victoria magazine is back! It's my all time favourite. Found a copy at Walmart of all places. I'm a magazine junkie so I always take a fast glance to see if any new ones are on the shelves. I am so happy. I love Victoria magazine. It's so lush and beautiful and opulent. Sigh.

Your house fiasco is the SUCKIEST thing I have ever heard of.
But I always figure things happen for a reason, so maybe it'll prevent something worse from happening.

Get yourself a chocolate bar to go along with the Victoria mag (I love it too... I still have a couple of issues from 1999.) Chocolate and magazines always perk me up.

Good luck!!
