OK...I'm finished. This is the way the blog is going to look for spring. I wanted a cleaner look...not so cluttered. I hope that people who come here will recognize the name. Today is really another dreary day. Snow is expected and will be welcome for me...it will make things cleaner outside. This is the part of winter that I hate...dirty snow and patches of brown grass showing through. Joe has been out shoveling the deck and trying to get an ice jam in the gutters broken up. I have learned not to say too much...he will do it anyway. I am planning on pasta with Italian sausage sauce for dinner. We are thrilled that the winter Olympics is soon coming. The ice skating and skiing are my favorites. We are having a weekend of skating. I love following our skaters through the preliminaries before being chosen for our USA teams. I only wish that more of the kids could go...but we want to have our best there. Vancouver will be a beautiful city for this event. I can't wait!
