Its a Snow Day

I figured it out!!!!!
Okay, you know that's a lie. Moriah (Fuzzy slippers) helped me with my blog problem.
Even though it said I didn't have any more room in my picasa account (even though I didn't even know I had one) I found a way to still down load photos :)
Seriously this kept me awake last night. Yes I love my blog that much ;)

So I am sure you are wondering what I did.
I opened my photo in "paint" on my computer.
Hit "resize". Changed it to "Pixels".
Whatever the bigger number was, I changed it to 799 and then it automatically changed the lower number. Saved it and then downloaded that photo.

I am not sure if this is a cure for this problem, or I am just adding a bit of time until I am full again. But for now this makes me happy :)

Look what I woke up to...snow and lots of it.
I was a bit surprised because when I went to bed last night we had freezing rain. You could hear the pellets of rain hitting the window.

I kind of found this funny when I went out today.
Help, Santa has fallen and he can't get up, lol. His poor arm was waving in the wind like he was trying to get Mr. Penguin to help him up....told you its the little things that amuse me.
Or it could look like Mr. Penguin is having his way with Santa...but that's a whole other type of humor, lol.

It was a snow day today.
As in the school buses didn't run. We have a lot of country kids, so they got to stay home, which means the city kids figure they can stay home as well....and usually do.
Except my Kristy. She does not like to miss school. So I drove her.
It was pretty slippery out, glad I have a 4x4.

Onto My Day:
After driving Kristy to school I came home and finished shoveling the driveway. Wayne had plowed a bit before getting picked up for work. He cleaned the snow from the back of the vehicles so Ashley and I could get our vehicles out.
At about 10:30 am the door bell rings continuously (that's how Wayne rings the bell). He decided he didn't want to be at work he couldn't get to his machine so came to the conclusion he would have more fun at home plowing out everyone"s drive way.
Wish I would have known that before I shoveled, lol.

Tonight is Friday Night Scrapbooking. Because of the weather, its just Sharon and I tonight.

I hope you all had a warm and creative Friday :)

Tracy :)


  1. Thanks Tracey for the info...I am going to try this resizing. Hopefully my program will let me do this.
    Wow, that is a lot of snow...none here yet...touch wood!

  2. That is a funny interpretation of Santa and the Penguin!

  3. It does look very wintery in your neck of the woods. The kidos are having a long weekend up there too!!! I bet it was real slippery with all the freezing rain underneath!!!!
    Have a fun scrappy evening.

  4. You are a naughty thinker... Hey that reminds me of someone. LOL I had to laugh. It felt good.

  5. Bwahahaha! Funny!!
    No paper fun, was finishing up with wax for selling my candles tomorrow at a local craft sale! :0)

  6. Jingle bells, keep humming it. All your fault! LOL red or blue bells;)

  7. You can keep that snow! Don't send it down here-please. It was spitting a little bit of snow today. I'm not ready.

  8. We are supposed to get out bit of snow later this week, although it keeps changing from 3cm to 10cm or maybe less/more. Guess I'll just look out the window and see what arrives:-) Have a great weekend.

  9. Sorry I missed tonight. Hated driving today and witnesses too many stupid drivers. Thought best to stay put, but sadly got no crafting done bad erases has their craft show so hoping to get out there.

  10. Ugh, I woke up this morning to let the dogs out and it smelled like snow. The sky was really dark and its cold and windy too. I wish it was just stay fall all the time and then a couple months of summer.

    I didn't know about the whole picture thing. Maybe it's a setting in Picassa itself that causes everything to be uploaded to Picassa as well as your hard drive. I'm not sure but I think I remember a setting like that. If you upload directly from your computer you are using your hard drive as the storage place and not the google bandwith. Somehow the pictures are automatically being saved to Picassa and uploaded from there. But I'm not incredibly intelligent, I tend to pull things out of my butt and it just sounds really good LOL!

    And TA DA!!! I am caught up on your blog and can now go back to being a good friend ;)

  11. The snow looks so beautiful when it is in someone else's yard and neighborhood! Love the fallen Santa and penguin picture...too darn funny.


  12. Yes, keep the snow! LOL!! Funny story about the Penguin and Santa...I think Penguin wanted more personal space! LOL!! Keep warm!!

  13. I'm glad you figured out your picture problem, I know how much your blog means to you :) That snow is, well, shi**y. Lol! I'm cracking up at the photo of the snowman and santa!!! Too funny! Hope you had fun Friday night :)

  14. I had the same problem with my blog! I was so upset that AJ told me to just buy the extra storage. I wish I'd thought of sizing them down!

    The snow is very pretty at least! The Santa and the Penguin is hysterical!

    I hope Friday night scrapping was fun :)

  15. Wow I didn't think they closed the schools there. Love the Santa, Penguin humor. Cracked me up.


Leave me some love and I will return it right back to you :)
