We say here, well, at least we don't have earthquakes...=). Hope you've had a good day dear friend. We actually got some snow today and it was beautiful to see. It dwindled alway though and all thats left are some icy roads perhaps and a dusting of snow. Stay cozy...=)

We say, I wish everyone would go back to the snow and quit moving here! HA!

Or, how about, we wish the weather would make up its mind. 80F one day and 40F the next! Sheez!

Mrs. Diamond said...

hahaha that is so true! i say that all the time too!

Badoozie said...

hmm hurricanes or snow up to your hairline...it's a toss up!

Debra said...

Yes! The funniest part is that it's so true--people say that kind of thing here all the time! :) Blessings, Debra

Saija said...

maggie ann ... we say that too! about earthquakes ... and i did have a cozy day ... hope you did too!!! blessings on ya!

jeanette ... just like the permanent Arizona residents, always look forward to april and the mass exodus of snowbirds!!! :o)

mrsd ... aren't you glad that it has "warmed up" some these past few days! brrrr, that -30C and more was a wee bit too cool for my blood!

susie ... :o) ... and how's the unpacking coming along ... i haven't been in blogland for a day or two ... i know how quickly everyones lives can change!

debra ... i sooooo loved your ice pics - though i also know how trecherous that stuff is!! and yes, aren't we human beings so predictable? :o)

Yes, it would be neat to own a used bookstore. The kind where you smell a Yankee candle burning when you walk in, or coffee. I completely relax in bookstores and the used ones ARE the best...you'll almost always find something to take home with you. The bookstore we went to yesterday evening was a new one, but the prices on all the books are 3.99 each...some more but hey, 'Gramma' told me once each time you enjoy the book you bring down the price...sounds good to me...grin. btw, I look at crafting books first, then interior decorating and novels last. Love a good coffetable book too. Did I mention cookbooks? =) Happy Sunday to you too!

Saija said...

maggie ann ... your gramma had a good saying! :o) ... and at the used bookstore - i go for the old history books, or the ones with pics from the 50's, i like to take a peek into the past from the point of view of those who were living it as they wrote it ... if that makes sense *grin* ... i'm waiting for my 2 bookcases (another project to put together with leo!) to come in - so that i can get my computer area tidied up ... soon!!

Terry said...

Ha!! Saija...How well I remember those days when we lived in Rivers, Manitoba and there was no such thing as school snow days either!
I must tell you that we only had about a mile to walk to get a little bit of educatin'...My dad used to say, "Quit your complaining! When I was a kid I had to walk five miles in a blizzard to get to shool!!"
Yeh! Ok Dad...You lived in the small town of St. Catherines, Ontario and it wasn't even five miles from one side of the town to the other. [and it wasn't either, Saija in the 30's]!

We have a little snow now but it is so cold!! And there isn't even enough to scare up a snowball to throw at Mrs Mac!..
Have a great Sunday...Love Terry

Saija said...

terry ... when we lived up north - we walked about 2 miles to school ... and in january/february it WAS FREEZING!!! especially that windchill ... and we didn't have all the fancy arctic fleeses and stuff, just layer upon layer upon layer of clothes! which made walking even more difficult ... but since i am here to tell the tale, it obviously didn't do any permanent harm for us to trudge through the snow and go to school! mind you, i'm glad that i don't have to do it any more! *grinning*

I say "the cold weather will slow down the growth" ... wishful thinking maybe. I saw Miss Terry's little remark about still wanting to throw a snowball at me. We have enough snow outside to 'take care of her' :) I posted some snow pictures on my "This-New House" website.

jel ... well january is almost over ... "only" 2 more months of cold & snow here ... maybe 3, but who's counting ... **hugs**

jel said...

snow I can take, but ice burrrr!

but I don't want any more!

Saija said...

jel ... ya, not much you can do with ice! 'cept slip 'n slide!

Catherine said...

I agree, no more ice!! I'd be happy to have some snow, but the ice should stay up in the sky where it belongs. :) I'll take cold and snow any day over a Texas August, though.

catherine ... our july's are quite hot here, we even get 100F sometimes ... but our condo has central air - so i feel quite spoiled with that luxory, never having had it before! so i am looking forward to even HOT weather!
