What American accent do you have?
Your Result: The Inland North

You may think you speak "Standard English straight out of the dictionary" but when you step away from the Great Lakes you get asked annoying questions like "Are you from Wisconsin?" or "Are you from Chicago?" Chances are you call carbonated drinks "pop."

Way to funny, I'm Minnesota born and the only time I've been to Chicago or Wisconsin was a Navy tour with DH.

Winter Wonderland

After all the rain we've had this month the snow is a welcome site for me. It's a beautiful day with the trees looking for all the world as if a giant hand had sprayed them with whipped cream, the snow sparkling as the sun filters through the branches.

We usually don't have snow this early or last this many days here in my part of the world. It snows then is gone the next morning.

I'm not much of a snow person, I don't like being cold but today I dressed up warmly and with camera in hand ventured out into the sunshine. It's such a beautiful day and lifted my spirits after spending so many gloomy gray days stuck inside. I haven't any sewing to show, I've not sewed much at all this month so I thought I'd share my lovely day with my friends.

It's November and the wettest month here in WA. Once again we are sitting under flood watch and hoping the rivers across the western part of the state will keep to their banks. It's a yearly thing, filling sand bags and shoring up along the rivers. So many roads are closed here due to water on them be it from leaves clogging the drains or just plain too much rain for the ground to absorb.

The Seahawks are getting ready to start their game so must go find some handiwork and settle in.


A safe trip back to Portland last night for DH in this pouring down rain.

A surprize call from my friend of 30 years who had moved since I last visited.

Finally getting Lady's insulin regulated.

Being warm, dry and still having power during this rain/wind storm we're having
