OMG, it's still snowing.  Apparently we have broken a record for the most snow at this time of the year since 1914!  Enough already!  It is no longer the light and fluffy stuff, it is wet and heavy.  Yuck.  There was a lot more snow to shovel today than yesterday.  Probably another 10 inches. The forecast says snow until Sunday!  We will have to go out tomorrow for groceries.  So glad we have a vehicle with winter tires and 4WD.  From the tv news reports the roads are really bad.

Jam & Bread

It was snowing when we got up this morning and it hasn't stopped all day.  We have been out shovelling twice already today.  Fortunately it's the light fluffy stuff.  We've had about 6 inches so far today and we are supposed to get up to another foot by tomorrow night!!  I'm so glad I'm retired now and don't have to drive anywhere in this weather. 

This is what I've been doing instead of going out in the snow.

I made 8 pints raspberry/blackberry jam
             8 pints raspberry/blueberry jam
         & 8 pints of marmalade
and a loaf of cinnamon, raisin bread.  Delish.
