Snow Days

Today was our 2nd day snowed in. We've worked from home as well as work on the basement. The snow finally stopped this afternoon and tonight we went outside to shovel the snow out of the drive way. Greg, in work smarter not harder mode, found a new use for our leaf blower (Paula and Jodi will be so proud to see their shower gift being put to good use). It worked well to blow away the snow and highlight the ice below. Eventually, a lane of snow was removed so when we do finally return to work, we can get out of the carport. If you have snow, hope you are staying warm. If you don't have snow, I'm sure you're jealous. Below are some pics of our days at home.

I started this blog to share the journey of our home renovations. Leave it to me to make the first post unrelated to our current basement bathroom renovation. We worked on the white trim this weekend but no photos to share yet. Instead, I'm showing the collage I've been working on the last couple weeks. I wanted to add some color to our living room. I know that the living room renovation is rooms away so I decided to create some artwork instead. Greg has been wanting a room with orange walls (which I'm trying to discourage) so I created a collage focusing on orange. I cut out 1" squares in a variety of yellows, oranges and purples. For the first one, I don't think it turned out too bad. Take a look and tell me what you think.
