You know it's the dead of winter in Wisconsin when…

…you don’t get excited about 6 inches of snow anymore.
…your shovel is wearing out.
…the kids aren’t into snowmen anymore.
…hot cocoa isn’t a treat anymore.
…you have begun pouring over your seed catalogs.
Yep – we in the Hatter Household are SICK OF WINTER!!!!

How could it be Thursday already? Unreal how the weeks fly. School and ballet were cancelled yesterday due to the cold. So I didn’t poke my nose outside alllllllll day and it was lovely.
It’s off to the races again today, though. I need quite a few things from the store, too. […]

Right now the little girls are in their tutus and they are dancing to a flute CD. […]

Monday Monday

Brisk start to the week. I was up waaaaaaaaay too late last night but my brain woke me up at the same old time this morning. Getting up was quite rude though, and if I hadn’t already been awake that would definitely have woken me right up. It was another cold night. […]

This one is a special treat. What could be better than a pretty something under your clothes that only YOU (and maybe your dear hubby) LOL knows is there. I don’t think I’ve ever gotten into ? bustiers? ? but there was plenty […]

Get Spiffy!

Need automotive tools? I can’t think of a guy who doesn’t think he needs SOMETHING!? Everything you could need or want is here on this website, I’m sure. One thing that is really neat is the tool storage items they have. I love […]
