Schools were canceled last night before it even began to snow. Shawn and I went to the grocery store, along with everyone else and their dog, yesterday evening. I used to think Walmart was busy during the Christmas season. Not a single loaf of bread was to be found at Walmart Supercenter. We settled for two packages of English Muffins. Shawn grabbed the last package of butter sticks and I split what was left of the canned chicken broth with another shopper. Note to self: Not a good idea to already be low on groceries and then go shopping shortly after a blizzard warning is announced.
The sleet began falling at around 11:00 last night. It was still falling swift and steady when I went to bed a little past 1:00 a.m.
This morning, I woke to a continual snowfall. Falling snow is one of the most beautiful sights, to me.
Look what the weight of the snow is doing to the trampoline.
This chair is on the covered porch!
I'm snuggly warm inside by the fire, but my neighbor isn't. Can you make him out in this picture? He's in between the tree closest to the window (notice how high the snow drifts are) and the smaller trees further in the background. He's having a jolly time shoveling snow from his driveway.

I've spent my day baking and organizing my curio cabinet, and in my pj's. I love all day pj days.
I used the chicken broth I got last night to make homemade Chicken Pot Pie. I'll share the recipe either Thursday or Friday.
Here's a sneak peek at one of the individual pies I made.
And, here's a little peek into my curio cabinet after arranging and cleaning it. This houses vintage red glassware, crystal, a few pieces of transferware and some heirloom silver pieces.
Ok, let's get to the giveaway! CSN Stores contacted me once again and offered one of you lucky ducks a $70 gift certificate good towards any purchase at any of their 200+ stores. If you've been around blogland you may be familiar with CSN. Whatever you're shopping for, you're sure to be able to find it here. Last giveaway I featured some cool pieces from All Modern. Here are some of their modern bar stools:
I'm a sucker for the beautiful wood grain in these Hoopla barstools.
Here, traditional meets contemporary in these Johnston casual barstools
These Zanzi swinging bar stools are fun, adapting to any position, and come in equally fun colors.
