Baby it's cold outside

 I live in Utah, not Antarctica, but lately I can't tell the difference. It's been freezing here since Christmas. For Utah, that is pretty unusual. Yes we get a lot of snow, but usually it stays so warm that it melts quickly so it's not much of an inconvenience. Not this year, we got snow what feels like months ago, and it's still around.

 I went to my sisters for a baby shower on Saturday and noticed her rain gutters were completely frozen over. Then I came home and saw that mine are too.

 I have a confession to make. I didn't know rain gutters could freeze. I thought their whole purpose was to drain away all the rain, not make guttercicles out of it.

 Now I have to lay in bed and wait for the sound of the rain gutters ripping off the house. Cause I don't have enough stuff to fix, like the master bedroom, and the dishwasher, garbage disposal, siding and don't even get me started on the sprinkler system.

 I'm not sure why I thought owning a house would be fun. So far, no fun at all, just lots of money and shit I can't afford to repair.

  Oh well, on the bright side, Kayla is getting ready to bless us with another beautiful baby boy, which seems to be a theme in our family right now. Lots of pretty little boys. Like Noah, with a box on his head. The ears make me laugh every time.




  I haven't been blogging because I've been tied to a crib quilt I was trying to finish before the shower. I finished it just in time and I'm so proud of it. It's the most detailed quilt I've ever made and as much work as it was, it was fun. I hope Neko loves it.

  3. That quilt is so beautiful is *almost* makes me want to have a baby just so I get you to make it for me!

    I hear you on the weather - just please don't send it our way. We literally die when it snows here. And by "we" I mean ME.

    1. I have been plotting with Hailey about a move to warmer, more easterly weather. It's always been my dream to sell my novel and live on the beach in North Carolina. The only problem is that novel will not write itself!

  4. That quilt is gorgeous. I envy you that skill! Also, there is nothing cuter than a baby with a box on its head. Nothing.
