    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    When the girls were at home, we would saddle a horse or hitch a team to drag them on sleds while doing chores. Now, Lou and I do chores and then enjoy watching it snow through the windows.

    Jonathan I do get a little painting done while I'm watching TV watching the snow and just enjoying the quietness of my studio

    Usually run out and get gas for the snowblower and generator because I used it all up during the fall and summer

    Then shop time.

    IF they close the plant - and probably NOT, I would first get the shop nice and warm, then I would snowblower the driveway and clean off the decks and clean off the cars. That all takes about 1-2 hours. In 12-18" of snow, it's a good 2 hours.

    I might to out for a ride to see the new snowfall.

    Then I spend the rest of the day in the shop

    Slept in, got caught up on some Wood Whisperer podcasts, spent some time in the shop trying to cut out reindeer (had to order new BS blades), spent some time playing with the guitars and software, and now watching some foosball.

    Snow day! What's a snow day? All we've had is stinking rain! Wouldn't have minded getting some snow instead of rain. You can keep the ice though!
