The thing is, where the heck is the snow? Ours has almost melted away from our warmer weather a few weeks ago. Now we have ugly brown patches and plants sticking out from the snow. I fear for my poor garden. Will anything survive the freeze-drying atmosphere? We had a dusting of snow overnight, but not enough to make any real difference, just a nuisance snow. I want real snow, pretty snow that blankets and protects my plants and makes my yard look beautiful. Oh well, we can't control nature, it does what it does. So what's a person supposed to do?

Well, since it's way to cold to go outside, frostbite in five minutes cold, I will catch you up on what I have been doing. I have been messing around with my new camera that I got for Christmas. Trying all sorts of weird settings to see what it will do. Trying to perfect my product photos for my shop. I even pulled out my water colors for a few minutes the other day and painted a snow man. I started working on taxes and organizing receipts and doing inventory for my shop. Which makes me want to cry, I hate that kind of stuff. I've also been paying bills, reading about how to improve my shop, reading all the millions of topics on the Etsy forums. Have you ever looked at all
My poor car is finally out of the shop and after thousands of dollars, I can drive it again. It's still better than a new car payment! Still seeing the bill is a real bummer. The other fun thing I have been doing is trying to figure out how to set up a Google+ account and business page. I have run across of few of you good folks out there. Thanks for your kind comments, I'm glad to know that I am not the only one that finds this new fangled technology somewhat confusing. If you are not familiar with the word "fangled", then you know I am much older than you! Anyway if you are a Google+ enthusiast please "Circle" me and "Plus" me and pass my shop page around to your friends that might be interested in my stuff. It is on the right side of the page, just under my bio.

I plussed myself, I'm sure that is against Google+ etiquette! Also sometime soon, I am going to do a give-away of something from my shop or inventory. I still haven't decided yet what that will be. I'm still making it through everyone's blogs, if I haven't been there to visit lately, I apologize. I will get there eventually. Meanwhile I will be trying to work myself out of the winter-weary-doldrums!

What do you do to get through the long winters?
