Well this is what we got.

Well it did snow last night but this is what we actually got.
Reference to yesterday's post.



It is now 11:30 AM and every bit of it is gone.


When I was practicing on trying for macro shots again yesterday this is what I found in my flower pot from  last spring.
Pansy.
They don't mind the chilly weather as long as the sun is shining.
That is how I feel.
Got a surprise call from my MD office yesterday.
I forgot some of the lab tests have to be sent away so I was surprised when they called and told me my cholesterol and triglycerides were elevated.

 Not  totally surprised, after all nearing 75 is getting on and the diabetes is just one of several things that can mess up as one ages.
She wanted to put me on two different medications and because the values were not out of sight I pleaded to try to manage without meds.

You know diet and exercise.
I do hate to take medicine.

So here I am on my oatmeal etc, again.

On to something more fun.
I am making totes decorated with Journey Beads to sell to raise funds for the missions of the Sister of Charity of Nazareth.
If you follow my blog you have seen totes I made for the summer picnic and the ones made from the brown and blue plastic bags were the best sellers.

I call this bag Peanut Butter and Chocolate because the trim reminds me of peanut butter.

The bag  
 The lining and preparing the inner pocket.
This material is like suede but as little as I paid for it I doubt if it is suede.

This is the trim I made for the tote.
Not sure where I am going to put it.

Probably on the flap as it needs to be heavy enough to stay down to keep the tote closed.
 



My items are not on there yet but as soon as I am finished with two they will be featured.

So hope that your levels come down, Peggy. That bag is just gorgeous. We are in the process of getting snow now.

Have a wonderful day ~

Pansies are one of my favorite cool weather treats! You changed your blog's look! I like it! What a fun place to look. Have a great day.

God bless you, Peggy! Thinking about you and will pray for your well being.

We also got some snow...about like yours. It's grey out and still there. I was sure hoping our snow would be at least 3 feet deep.

Maybe in March.

Oh a sprinkle of poor man's fertilizer and already gone. Can't beat that!

I do remember the tote bags...very nice.

Hope that you will be successful with lowering the cholesterol on your own with diet and exercise.

I'm glad to hear that the white stuff didn't stay long. It disrupts everyone's schedule - unless one is lucky enough to be able to take a 'snow day'.
