Not Just Another Day. It's Another Snow Day. And Giveaway #3.

I am late in getting this posted, but guess what today was? Another Snow Day. While we are on this subject, guess what tomorrow is? That's right. Another Snow Day.

So, here's a photo of the latest round of snow:

I think it was close to 9". It was hard to tell because the wind was blowing so hard that the snow was making huge drifts. Highway 70 was closed for 14 hours from our exit (we live less than 1/4 mile from the exit) all the way to Kansas City. Fun times.

I have another giveaway for today. Winning is different this time. Leave a comment here to receive 1 entry. Receive 1 additional entry for posting this contest link on your blog, facebook, or twitter. Be sure to leave a link to where you posted in your comment so your extra entry can be counted. Check back on Wednesday, February 9, for the winner.

Up for grabs today is a fat quarter of Amy Butler's Duck Egg French Wallpaper. I love this fabric. You also receive your choice of a free pattern that I have in my possession. The patterns are from The Quilted Fish, and they are wonderful. I just don't have time to make all of them, so I thought I would share my stash.

Choice of patterns:
Posh Pennants
I Wub Ewe
Love Letters
Flowers for my Friend
Sassy Squares No. 2
Giddy Bloomers
Whoopsy Daisy
Year At-A-Glance

Another Day of Snow and Another Giveaway

Yesterday (Monday) was just some sleet, freezing rain, and heavy (HEAVY) rain that was ahead of the gigantic storm that has arrived here this morning. We now have a blizzard warning and the state has called out the National Guard. According to officials this is supposed to be the worst storm in over 20 years. We are still on the border between receiving 8-12 inches of snow and 12-24 inches of snow. Gah.

I'm sitting here on my laptop, watching the endless weather coverage on TV, and chilling with my doggie Max. He's siting on my foot - he loves being close to us - and chewing on a chicken flavored rawhide. It still boggles me why they make chicken flavored COW rawhides. Wouldn't BEEF flavor make more sense?

Yesterday the kids had a half day of school, so we all kind of chilled around the house with the dog and cat. I managed to read a book. An entire book. Saving Francesca by Melina Marchetta. Which I read in advance of The Piper's Son being released on March 8.

I read 32 books in 2010, and 5 so far in 2011. I have so many more still on my to read list, and I add more almost every day. I love using Goodreads to keep track of my books and to find more books to read.

Giveaway time again. The cute little zipper pouch pictured below. All you have to do is leave a comment letting me know what you are currently reading, or a book that is on your to read list. Winner will be chosen on Tuesday, February 8.

You can also find me here on Goodreads. (Not required to enter giveaway.)
