What can I say? It's life in New England, right?
A lot of the weekend was spent dealing with shoveling off roofs, roof raking and snow clean up in general...three days of snowing will do that. I'm not complaining though. It's true...we have more than enough snow up here, but our friends who live in the Boston area have been buried. With reports of at least one more snow storm heading towards New England, it doesn't appear that winter is going away any time soon, so we just need to settle in and accept it I guess.
Ken and I spent Saturday down in Portland Maine, having a few recalls on our van fixed. I can't say enough good things about Berlin City Honda in Portland. We arrived at 9:30, dropped off our van and they had a free shuttle over to the mall, which was great as I needed to go to the Apple store to have a glitch in my phone worked on. They picked us up a few hours later and the bill ~ zero. Sweet!
Living in the boonies definitely has it's drawbacks. We have outlet stores and mountains to ski at, but we do not have the stores that most people really want to shop at, like Micheal's. Usually I have to resort to online shopping for so many things....thank goodness for Amazon Prime!
So, given that we were in Portland, why not take advantage of wonderful shopping choices, right?
Ken was kind enough to accompany me into the deep end of Micheal's while I looked for a few things for my One Little Word project. Normally I hate having him shop with me, but on this day, I was glad he came along and spotted that little corner cutter that perfectly cuts round corners.
It saved me a lot of money! Instead of purchasing a kit, I was able to do it myself with card stock, an old paper cutter and this little tool.
Yes....winter's in New England can be long and boring, so we have to find the things that make us smile when we can. ;-)
