A Bit of a Blog Break

Hello all! I surely hope you've had a lovely Christmas and that the holiday stretches out for a few more days.  I had a number of Christmas things that I planned to post, but the weather on these high plains has been pretty frightful. I haven't been able to get to a library to even schedule any posts, and now that the holiday is past, those posts are no longer relevant. So, I'll save them for next year. One nice thing about a hope chest is that objects are put away and saved anyway. Getting them out to see again will be just as much fun later.

So, back to the weather. We've had snow on snow and high winds. I've just had to be patient to be at home. Thankfully I had everything I needed for Christmas, although I did have to design and draft some doll clothes patterns myself. I'm quite amazed that I could make that work! My husband is on his annual leave from work, so I don't need to worry about him on the roads. But I do get a little bit claustrophobic and when the road grader came down the road today, I followed it out. The weather is supposed to improve and the temps are supposed to rise, but that will melt all of this nice snow into mud. Seven miles of muddy dirt road is actually worse than snow.

All this is to explain that I might be taking a bit of an enforced blog break until the weather smooths out. January typically has our worst weather. So, don't be concerned - I'm just snug at home.  I hope you all are too.


  1. I'll bet the doll clothes turned out beautifully! Stay safe!

  2. A Very Happy New Year to you and your family, Kathleen!

  3. Glad you are back! You should post the Christmas ones anyway. Sometimes it is nice to get a headstart on them!

    Yes, I don't think we would have been going anywhere except we were milk-cow-sitting for some friends over Christmas. :) It wasn't too bad and thankfully we had a road grader down our road! I just wish he would have done the rest of the ranch so we could feed easily..... :D

  4. Glad to hear from you again! I just found the blog this month. Reading these posts has inspired me to start my own hope chest (though I am beginning a bit late, as a college freshman). Happy New Year to you and your family!

  5. I'm glad you're doing okay. Post a pic of the doll clothes when they're ready!!! You know what? You could collect ideas while you're on your blogging break, post them, and then take another break when the weather gets better :) :) I miss the snow, but I don't miss the icy roads...no way. Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather :) :)

  6. Wishing you a wonderful New Year ahead! blessings,Kathleen
