Oh, I should update here, huh?

We made it through the storm just fine; the power flickered a few times, but never went out! We have over two feet of snow, and drifts that are higher than that. Our yards are full. Like, full. It's supposed to get up to 40 tomorrow, hopefully for long enough to get rid of some of this and not just convert it to ice.

For the most part, the snow totally bollixed our weekend plans. My body's usual reaction to major weather did not help. But Judah baked storm cookies, and Adam made a lasagna, and we were okay.

Today I finally got Elayna to excavate her room. We pulled everything out of her drawers and her closet and put it back in ways that made sense. We've filled four bags with clothes and assorted stuff for donation, and now she's not overstuffed and overwhelmed. Even her bookshelves make sense now. She's celebrating by playing a game that she found on her desk during the cleaning.

Adam's been organizing his room, too, and Judah's been shoveling. Right now, everyone is resting.

Don't keep us in suspense! What was in the mystery boxes!?!?!

Oops! Didn't mean to do that to you! Short answer: Depression glass and revival Depression glass, servingware and barware, a set of never-used linen handkerchiefs. I'll be photographing things and doing a more comprehensive post.

No special recipe; he just always ends up baking cookies during big storms. :)

Good to hear you didn't get blacked out or buried. And yay organised books'n'stuff! =:o}

I have a favour to ask, oh Keeper of the Nexus... Could you give a little plug to Avevale? It's a site created by my pal Jonathan Waite (aka Zander Nyrond), who's been writing wonderful stuff for years and has finally gotten around to putting some of it online in a readily accessible form. There's free content there, including complete stories, as well as teasers/first chapters for things he'd like people to buy and/or fund the further development of.

Enjoy! =:o}
