Hello Winter

It is Winter for sure here in Maine- yes, we got over a foot of snow. Actually I don't know how much as I haven't had to go outside. It was cold earlier when I looked at the thermometer,  10 degrees. The steps and walk way can wait. Bo showed up and plowed, and even moved my car. Nice and warm inside, and I don't have to even step outside. I'm loving this. Wayne, Cody, Sara, and David came, and shoveled me out, cleared both door ways, got the wood in, and I'm good to go.Thanks to all!

If you have yarn you are not using, or want to buy a skein of yarn for making mittens please leave it at the Town Office for "Tootsie," Coral Furrow.  She has been busy making mittens for the little children, and she could use more yarn. I will make sure it gets delivered to her. Thanks Coral for what you are doing.
