Laura, glad you were able to have your getaway. I'm @ son's ranch near Seguin. He and dh are @ an exotic ranch shooting a buffalo. Ddil is doing volunteer work @ her art league gallery and dgs is on a scout campout. So I'm just enjoying the peace and reading.

Stay safe and warm, Gab, Misty and all in the path of the snowstorm!

Laura, son's ranch is between Seguin and Stockdale, several miles off the highway. BTW, the buffalo is still alive, dh and ds have twisted ankles, lots of mesquite scratches from searching for it through the brush. Hopefully, dh will get another chance.

Didja find an RV?

Yep, Gab, it's planting time here. I've seen farmer's row crops -- maize, I think -- already sprouting in the fields. And it's pruning time for roses. I haven't done that yet, and they are already blooming and putting on new growth so I need to get with it.

Lory, how are you doing?

Misty and Gab, stay warm and safe! That was some storm!

Glad the storm is over for awhile, there saying another on mybe on its way for Saturday. But that's still a ways away. We got over 2 feet. No school for the kids today because alot of the streets are clean up yet.

Gab Sam must of been so cute playing in the snow. Now he's learning something new to try all the time.

Laura sounds like you had a great vacation. How little Shelby doing? She must of missed you all week.

Tex never ate buffalo, is it like beef? SS hope DH and DS ankle gets better. That buffalo sure didn't want to get caught.

Lory how you doing? Any special plans to go somewhere for valentines Day.

Christina hope work slows down a bit for you so you can start posting again.

Laura, I love Shelby's new pic! She is such a cutie!

I haven't been on-line much except for an on-line course I am taking. I've been sewing for several days -- made a ribbon shirt for ds and one for dgs and am working on a Cherokee style dress for me now. I want to have them all made by Pow-wow this weekend. We'll see.

I've also been working in the garden and flower beds. I have tomatos and peppers transplanted to the raised beds and bluebonnet transplants in a flowerbed. I've been harvesting turnips, chard, carrots, radishes, green onions and am still waiting for the Brussel sprouts to fill out. We bought a plum tree and planted it last week and replaced one of the rosebushes that did not do well last year. Next week I need to prune the other rosebushes and the esperanza. I love that spring is here!

Laura, aren't we glad we're down here and not in North Texas and the Panhandle! Wow! That was some blizzard they got. The wind wrecked havoc with my garden -- I may have to replace some of the tomato transplants especially, and I have covered everything for the night -- 33 degrees predicted here. But this last weekend, coming back from the pow-wow, which was loads of fun, I saw a few bluebonnets blooming on the roadside. Some of the first indicators of spring for me, and I usually see them on pow-wow weekend -- it's always the last weekend in Feb.

The buffalo hunt went badly -- it wasn't a good shot, the buff got into the thickets and was running a fever by the time he was finally located and put down, so the meat couldn't be used. We will have the hide made into a rug, but with the price of beef and us no longer raising cattle, we'll be eating lots of beans and rice this year! Misty, buffalo meat is like very lean beef. No real difference in taste as long as the buff is still reasonably young (3 years is a good age).

Everyone up there stay warm!

So I did it - yesterday was an all low carb food day (didn't count net carbs but kept to all "legal" foods and a banana).

So far on track for today.

Crossed fingers for a day off tomorrow - Snow day!

Laura - so glad the scale is moving down Shelby's photo ( the one you have now) always makes me think of Alice in Wonderland. Looks like it straight out of a movie.

thought everyone quit our tread, glad to see it starting up again. I missed everyone one.

Gab was so hoping you'd come back and post a pic of Sammie. Love the new Avi, the little man is growing fast. Sounds like he's going to start talking soon. Good luck on going back on plan, I know you'll do great.

Laura I agree with Gab love the picture of Shelby. What was she looking at.

Anyone here from Lory or Christina. Hope the doing good.

Hi Misty! How have you been? Get rid of all the snow yet? Ours is pretty much gone and i see some of the spring flowers starting to peek out. I love letting Sam just wander around the house. He is just so excited to be outdoors .

Gab we have gotten so much snow the past few months that I'm so ready for spring. I know your in an area of NY that doesn't get as much and your so lucky. Spring flowers sounds so nice, living up in the Bershires we won't see them until the end of May. All the ski resorts are loving this snow. I love seeing the pics of Sam he has a huge smile in all of them. Hows school going?

My section of LI did not get much at all. Out east is a different story. Sam is really a happy baby unless I don't let him have his way lol. He has had a few tantrums, terrible twos 8 mo early. He has (in the process of getting) all his teeth. So I can't remember the last night we got an entire night's sleep, but things have improved enormously, I think that is part of the reason I was ready to eat right again.

School is moving along. Been a stressful year - lots of paperwork and lots of other issues and concerns. Looking forward to spring break in just over a week.
