what's new, you ask?

As I sat here listening to my dog pass wind, I looked out the window and saw that it was SNOWING again. Seriously, isn't this enough? It has snowed a bit every day for the last few days . . . I'm beginning to worry I will still be driving with snow tires in May . . .
Yes, that's a tractor in front of the sidewalk to our main door . . .


In other news, Sam got his birthday present on Sunday - 8 months early. He is currently in 14-year-old-heaven (the kind with grease under the fingernails. Here it is:
He can't drive it on the roads until he gets his license in 8 months, but he's enjoying monkeying around with it in the meantime.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! What a beautiful family you have - and such an interesting heritage too! My husband's sister married a guy from Turkey and their son is learning to speak fluent Turkish AND English. Amazing! I look forward to "getting to know" you too!

what a beautiful blog. So glad I found it. Please stop by and see me.
I am going to have a "card box" giveaway every month. This drawing will be the last day of April.
Every comment you leave throughout the month will enter your name in the drawing. This NEW blogger was so touched by all the comments I got on the card box, that I decided to make this a monthly GIFT...
Also, if you mention my blog telling, about the monthly giveaway, you will have your name entered 10 extra times...How is that for an incentive? I was so blown away by all the responses that I wanted to email each person personally, but TIME... just has not permitted..but I did love reading all of them..
I am continuing to introduce my family members and then there will be some fun blogs coming up from Disney World in May. I am so thankful for all my new friends.

St. Petersburg

Saint Petersburg: Sankt-Peterburg, Russian pronunciation: is a city and a federal subject of Russia located on the Neva River at the head of the Gulf of Finland on the Baltic Sea. The city's other names were Petrograd (1914–1924) and Leningrad (1924–1991). Founded by Tsar Peter I of Russia on 27 May, 1703, it was the capital of the Russian Empire for more than two hundred years (1713–1728, 1732–1918). Saint Petersburg is home to more than two hundred museums, many of them hosted in historic buildings. The largest of the museums is the Hermitage Museum, featuring interiors of the former imperial residence and a vast collection of art. Celebrating the 300th anniversary of its foundation, Saint Petersburg was selected as the main motif in a recent Finnish commemorative coin, the €10 Mannerheim and Saint Petersburg commemorative coin, minted in 2003. The reverse of the coin features a view of Saint Petersburg, with the Peter and Paul Fortress and its three turrets. In the coin the words "St. Petersburg 1703-2003" can be seen.
