Arty's Date

After an awkward and somewhat clumsy introduction at Casey's, Arty got up the nerve to ask Lauren out for a date. To his surprise, she accepted. It's Saturday night, and they have reservations at Bella Donna's. Arty has picked out what he thinks is an appropriate suit to wear. His brother Cameron isn't impressed with his choice...

I think they'll have fun at Bella Donna's. Lauren makes Arty feel comfortable, and she enjoys his company. They like each other alot, so we'll see what transpires. Meanwhile, Cameron's enjoying the evening with his movies and Bruiser. Having just broken up with his long-time girlfriend, he's in no hurry to start dating again. For now, he just wants to enjoy his alone time. :-)

Lauren's New Man

Arty's brother, Cameron, just broke up with his long time girlfriend. So Arty took him to Casey's for a few drinks and some sympathetic conversation.

I'm not sure Arty can handle Lauren. She's got a bit of an attitude and can be a firecracker at times. On the other hand, she was able to get Arty to relax and be himself around her. Meanwhile, Cameron has his eye on the girls at the next table...:-)

New Winter Clothes

With all the snow, ice and bitterly cold temperatures in Moreville, the residents have been scrambling to find any warm clothes they could get their hands on. Per the request of my dear friend Vanessa of Van's Doll Treasures, here are some new crochet creations I came up with.

Darby found a colorful new sweater. Adaline got a new warm jacket.

Ace got a new sweater also, and Adaline got a new coat.

Sophia needed a new business suit for work. It consists of two pieces.

Here's the dress.

Here is the matching blazer.

Spying on the Moreville residents and crocheting them clothes are perfect pastimes for cold, snowy and windy days. By the time winter is over, I may have enough crochet clothes for one of the girls to start up their own boutique. I know a couple of them are interested in doing just that. Stay safe and warm everyone. :-)

Ice, Ice Baby

After yesterday's rain/snow/ice/wintry mix, I couldn't resist taking pictures of the aftermath. We lost power sometime during the night, but thankfully it didn't last long. I felt sorry for the crews having to be out in the cold, yet grateful that they were out restoring power to all affected areas.

 Tree down in the back yard.

Ice on our big oak tree.

Back deck.

Closer view of the icicles on the oak tree.

Front yard.

So much for the grass. LOL

This bush looks like it's made out of glass.

Another view.

Here's a closer view of the downed tree in the back yard.

Another view.

The ice was so heavy, one of the main branches split right off.

Of course, none of this even comes close to what people in the northern part of the US are dealing with. My thoughts and prayers are with them. D7ana and Ro, hope you guys stay safe and warm. :-)
