Well Winter Storm Petra blew into town this week. The Roomies got out early from work. They said it would have been cooler if were an actual snow day, lol.
We got about 3″ before it turned to freezing rain and then rain.
The Roomie was leaving for the day and then realized she forgot something. She turned around and took this photo. We all got a laugh.
We all survived and contrary to popular belief…no one had french toast, HA HA HA!

This weekend we all went to the Mercer Museum and Henry Chapman Mercer’s home Fontill Castle.
So much history in two amazing locations.
The Museum itself houses thousands of items that represent the trades of the by-gone era. The Tanner’s tools, Coaches/Toll Roads and they even have a Gallows on the top floor in the Crime and Punishment exhibit.
Fonthill Castle was the home built and designed by Henry Mercer for himself. It showcases his tile and stone collections from round the world. There are many oddities and tiles that depict stories like those of Charles Dickens and the travels of Columbus.
His home at the time was a Castle but with Modern conveniences like central heating, bell systems and electricity.
A really neat please to explore.

The Government might be shutdown but the Veggie Squad is on the Job!
It’s winter time. We’ve been having a lot of rain since last year but what we need right now is snow. The ground is cold for the most part so the rain isn’t being absorbed 😦
We are all ready for a break in the rain I think.

We finally got a break from the extreme cold. It’s 32 and feels wonderfully warmer, lol.
It was nice being at work and not still being frozen from the outside temps.
Coffee breaks are way better too, lol.
Weekend adventure to the Library and Outback for a tasty steak. Life is good.
We checked out some good books. Let the Reading begin!
