50 Shades of Grey...well, not quite!

Just before Christmas my son and his girlfriend helped me to transform my livingroom from beige and brown, to...surprise!...grey.
It still has a long way to go, but during her move I was fortunate to have this couch given to me by this same girlfriend.  Pretty nice eh? I previously had a couch and loveseat which had been my Mom's. It wasn't the set I would have chosen, but it certainly came in handy when I ventured out on my own, looking for a fresh start, I was in dire need of all the help I could get...and that furniture certainly came in handy. Right now this picture is centered on the sofa for a very good reason..the rest of the livingroom is filled with my old furniture:)  In my tiny house that doesn't leave much room to move around, let alone take pictures. I will fine tune the room and try and post more pictures as soon as I can!
Stay tuned!!

Enough already!!!

This is the view I had when I tried to venture out to work today.  
Not nice.  I did end up turning around after giving it the old college try. It seemed sillier the further I went to be driving in to a snow storm, slipping and sliding all over the road. The curious thing is I found that I found it worse to drive in this weather than the last storm we had. But although they cancelled the buses then, the school board didn't cancel the buses today. 
We might have less snow, but the conditions with the blowing snow are certainly worse because there is limited visibility.
Hope everyone gets home safe tonight!
