Mr. Teddy Making Snowangels My small lap dog Mr. Teddy B
Snow on our trees in yard 3' and counting
Our first major snowfall for the season, 3 feet and counting. It has been snowing here since last evening, and we are still suppose to get more over the next couple of days. We have travel bans all through the city. Schools, business, and even some medical buildings are closed for the day. Even different parts of our thruways are closed .People have been stuck on the thruway for 24 hours now and counting... what a mess! It's so beautiful watching it from my windows. But, yet to have to go outside into it... is a whole different storey. I used to love the winter, I used to love walking in it while it was snowing.....particapating in different winter activies.....and now, I dread when I have to go out into it......I 'd rather stay comfy cozy in my pj's and watch the snow fall by looking through my kitchen french doors..with a nice cup of coffee in hand and the fire going in my fireplace. What the heck happened to me??? Am I getting old???? Yikes!!! Talk about a reality check...LOL Have you ever felt the same??? I find as I am getting older, the South is looking better and better to me and on days like this. I find myself day dreaming of living down South, sitting on a big huge porch with a glass of sweet tea in hand, watching my dog roll in the grass(instead of watching him makeing snowangels) LOL. Ahhhh to dream..... Now I know they still get snow once in a while....but comeon', nothing like this here! I tried to snap some pictures today from my back deck so I could post, especially of my dog making his snowangels. But they didn't comeout to well. So, will try again tomorrow and post them here, if I am successful. Well friends until tommorrow, be safe, keep warm and have a good one!

I am divorced mom to three wonderful daughters and a Marmmie to three beautiful grandsons.( Thus, the name Marmmies Mammy's and More). I am a self taught artist who has been crafting and sewing since I was a young child. I have also taught, and made ceramics for many years, until I became disabled. I started getting involved in doll making a few years ago when I became disabled, and my last little bird left the nest. When she left, I had a hard time figuring out what "Me Time" was. I quess some might call this "Empty Nest Syndrome". I always knew I had a calling for something, but could never figure out what it was. Then one day after going to a craft show with my oldest daughter, she asked me to try and make her a primitive mammy doll. Needless to say I agreed, and from that day on I have become hooked! All the pieces in my "Me time" puzzle finally fell into place. I now use my talents to bring smiles to others through my creations and my dolls.
