Happy New Year. Welcome to 2008.
This year happens to be a Leap Year. A leap year happens to make up for lost days the last 3 years. Each year is short by a quarter of a day, so every four years they throw one in to make up for it. It must be funny to be born on February 29. If you are born on the 29th of February, you only have a “true” birthday every 4 years. I guess when you are older this could be a good thing. When you are 50 you are really only 12 1/2. Now I know this isn’t really the case, but it sounds good.
We are getting more snow today. It doesn’t look like it now, but we are in for a big storm to start the New Year. If this keeps up, I’m not sure where we will put it all. The snow is way up over our porch where we didn’t shovel. The snow banks are so high now it is hard to see around them.
Today will be a good day to start on some of my sewing projects. The husband’s birthday is coming up in a few weeks, and I want to get started on another petticoat. I bought this soft peach color cotton almost a year ago, and it is still sitting in the closet waiting to be put together.
I am also working on putting together a website to sell my patterns and clothing on. As long as we don’t lose power from the storm, that will be a good afternoon project.
Happy New Leap Year to everyone.
