I missed a day or two on here and look at what's happening! Welcome, Jane...so glad to have a new sister here around the fire. We eat and drink well, as you'll see if you read back over the thread, and even wax poetic occasionally Best of luck in your Airstream/Argosy search. I hope you find one close by that you can see and touch yourself before purchasing, but do research the "inspector" lists since you may find someone with some experience who can go along with you. Ooh, Sharon...your snow pictures have been beautiful, post card pretty, but this came too much! I can't imagine worrying about your Airstreams holding up under the load, but to lose your garage and have all that fall in on your workshop...wish we could wrinkle our noses and zip up there to help you haul and sort. I don't believe our virtual assistance will do much good right now. You have shown such resiliance with challenges before this, and we know you'll weather this too, but consider yourself propped up with hugs from all your campfire sisters today. Best wishes, ~G

.....ahhhh done for today....never a dull moment around this camp fire

Lets see...

First order was to get all the vehicles and parking spots sorted out - and a plan on where to put the content trailer - that meant MORE SNOW to be shoveled as the SnowBlower is out of commission (belt on order will be a week - but of course it would be )

If we put this car here and that trailer there and then moved this car over here then the other trailer could go there and then we can move the other car back and you can still get out, they can get in with their truck and trailer and....... well you get the picutre...Click image for larger version

For those of you who are really lucky in getting away to the CanOpener - I just might have a real treat for you....You think I could make it down with that landscape trailer full of snow

ID:	51099 I can only imagine what that fellow was thinking - why do these people have this junk!!! (the old bulk head cupboards and walls from LadyBug - kept for templates and now we don't know if they will survive )


An access route was determined - a new door at the front - through the side wall will be just dandy Click image for larger version

We have another shed where we keep the snowblower and several other Airstream parts and our Summer garden furniture. It will take a few items that we need on a regular basis - but there was more.....Click image for larger version

So here is the ironic thing - the stuff that looks like it is "garbage" is what is holding the garage up right now good old 1963 Globe Trotter Cupboard doors and the bulkheads and partician walls...Click image for larger version

ID:	51109 We are going to go for a 30x36x20 dual garage workshop. The RV bay will have a door on both ends so we can just pull right through. We can finally say goodbye to ALL the elements and work on our trailers and get them finished.

Gosh I will be peddling my wares for the rest of my life to pay for all what we need right now there goes the new Sport Model Safari I wanted tee hee just joking.

Thanks Georgia - the virtual assistance is absolutely perfect I would not wish this cold and snow on any of you fine ladies right now - need only one suffer at a time I have big shoulders (although sore ) and tough Canadian weathered skin - We are safe - and nothing of real importance has been damaged - well accept the garage of course but it can be replaced and will be no problem.

The summer would have been a nicer time to work on this new project - and we certainly did not need this with the new waterfront build hopefully coming up in a February start time.

Peter will now have to sharpen his chain saw and done the chaps for some tree removal. Surveyor will need to get us a new garage site plan drawn up and building permites applied for. Peter enjoyed building our Sunroom Addition last year in the winter - so he is accustomed to the outdoors as well I just need to light a fire under his butt these days - still slow recovering from his set back in the summer - but this will be the PERFECT motivating factor - to build a nice warm place to work for the rest of his time......a mans dream come true workshop and RV garage all in one.....

Well how about a tin of Butter cookies to pass around - and a nice hot chocolate.

Yes I am sure - being in NY you probably got nailed with the east coast "lake affect" so to speak (more like ocean affect) SNOW - how much did you get???

Well the wine making is Peter's hobby - I just drink it And his latest batch could not come at a more perfect time

Don't forget to press the upload button and then wait a bit while it thinks you will see the file names show up - then you know they are in your post

Aria, your cookies look divine, and I have some hot water on for tea...perfect! I've been in a baking mode the past two days: peanut butter and cherry mash dippers for chocolates, jam thumbprints, viennese crescents, decorated sugar cookies, and peanut and pecan chocolates drops. I'd still may do some date roll ups, but I'm looking for a simple glaze to go on them...maybe with a honey or maple sugar base. These are all for giveaways, except the peanut chocolates that Max craves. ..oh, and a tray to pass around the fire for all of you! I'm tired and ready to close this bake shop down soon. ~G AKA Mrs. Claus

Sheesh, Sharon, could ya slow down a bit? I'm havin' a hard time keeping up with you. I go into super slow-mo in the cold winter days, just trying to keep warm.

We got snow dumped on us too. About 2-1/2 feet from two snowstorms that passed through last week and over the weekend. Seems like we're spending all out time shoveling these days. Here's a picture out the back sliding doors.

I was so bushed later this afternoon - cold and aching from head to toe....so the best medicine for that is......

Steph thought you might like this one too....in the midst of all that shoveling - over by the Honda - I tossed some snow to the right of the car where there is a small maple tree - I took a double take thinking there was a snake in the tree!!! I then remembered that I had found it in the summer - it is a cedar root and thought it looked just like a snake - so I popped it in the tree so that the girls would not pick it up and chew it before I got it back to the house. Must have forgotten all about it... well I cleaned the outer layer off and popped it on the Ornamental Heron - that usually sits out by our Pond to keep the other birds away from eating my fish....

Jamie that is a really cool picture - like a patio party forgotten in time, with just a hint of a strawberry shortcake and slight vision of a ring left by the german cut crystal champagne glass, raised on its last toast of a lingering late summer evening....

Cheers Ladies.....

Sorry you are having problems Arial - I just posted above and did not get any server errors - but I was getting them yesterday or the day before and ended up double posting photos.

Perhaps you could PM one of the Mods to help you out???

Not sure what I can say to help you out unless you want to e-mail your photos to me and I can try and post them for you???

Thank you Sharon, you are a dear

Perhaps no one wants to see SNOW. Look close...and you can see our Call Ducks. They hate the snow...but want to get out to take a bath in our Pond.
