mother nature is a tart and a tease.

well me lovelies, we have our 4th round of snow (I only count those that stick to the ground)...woke up to about an inch in the garden ... shortly after it began falling.

I bundled up and got on the bike to get a few things in town (une chocolatine, un pain de paysan boule, une sac des tomates, etc etc). I'm going to prepare something savory and mexican today. why not?!

but really, Miss Thing needs to stop toying with our emotions ... one day its all sunshine and sprouts peeping up and birds trilling ... the next it is the calm cool silence and the glare of snow crystals! the hussy.

I mean, who is going to want to come into my freezing cold boutique and look at the spring sundresses? brrrrrrrrr!

I've stoked up a big fire in the fireplace, refilled the oil heater, put on some tunes ... made my cozy nest and think I'll try my hand at some sewing.

maybe one of those things you put at the bottom of your door to block drafts. let's see, I'll need about 34. better get crackin'

heh heh.

The new sewing machine will come in handy, then?

Have you thought about creating a giant bonfire right in front of your store? You can have the very finest in American cuisine, s'mores and hot dogs, for your customers.

Freezing cold boutique! Skimpy spring dresses! I can see a few potential selling points there. Just let me know when the fashion show will be taking place :-)
