Storm Troy

We just received an alert from The Weather Channel that a new snowstorm is heading our way-it is called Troy.  It appears that it may stay up in higher elevations, which would suit me just fine. Many of our friends in Utah and up in the Rockies are looking at another big dump of snow; I'd love it if it didn't materialize down here on the plains.  Today I am spending the day running errands-getting things for our getaway and also giving myself my annual pedicure.  For those who know me, you may remember I usually treat myself to one right before a trip.  With spring almost upon us, I do like my feet to look nice and since our getaway destination will be warm and have me wearing flip-flops or slippers as they are called where we are going, I best have cute toes.  Today is my birthday and I'm proud to say I'm 64, hubby says the day is all about me.  Hubby took me out for dinner last night and we will be celebrating with family tonight for dessert.  Hubby also made me a large ironing board, for quilting, as well as a storage cabinet and bench to go in our laundry room.  We've got to paint it black-black because the shelf above it and coat rack is black.  I will take pics when it is finished.  This way our shoes/snow boots will go underneath the bench(and stay tidy) with a basket for hats and gloves. 
I hope that the storm doesn't produce as much moisture as they are saying, except for those who live in a drought stricken area.
Joy to you!


  1. Oh no, I hate to hear that for you! This is a crazy spring for sure! Happy birthday to you! Sounds like you have a wonderful day planned, and your hubby is really treating you special, so awesome! Have a really super special blessed day my friend!

  2. Happy Birfday! Happy Birfday! Sounds like your hubby is properly spoiling you. Are you singing to hiM:

    Will you still need me, will you still feed me, When I'm sixty-four?

    Most of our snow went in the mountains so we hope that is the case for you too!

    Keep Calm & Bark On!

  9. Happy Birthday! Have a great trip.

    I have to say that my reaction to the weather news was embarrassment that we are now naming snow storms out here too ;) It's been snowing up here but I don't think it's going to be much...

  10. Happy Birthday Noreen! I hope you have enjoyed the day and made lots of new memories. So glad you got to treat yourself. Hope you don't get lots of snow! It has actually gotten a bit chilly here the last day or two, tomorrows high is suppose to be about 72, compared to last weeks upper 90's, we'll take it! Many blessings, Cindy xo

  11. Happy Happy Birthday! It was a year ago when we had a Denver weekend n it was sunny :-) Hopefully this is the end of winter weather. Have a wonderful celebration. Golden Woofs & Love SUGAR
