Whoa Weather!

GA. has been having some weather as of late. Snow and sleet and ice. Some are braced for the end of times. ;P I managed to get home the other day fine because it turned into rain and the temp. rose right after that. And then we had a heavy snow warning for Saturday. It snowed all around us, but none in Col. as far as I know and I live on the North end. I wonder if my kids got snow?
I worked another yarn event at AC Moore and people were saying that it was snowing in Pine Mtn. and Warm Springs. So maybe they got some at school. I know they'll be pleased if they did.

Other than snow news, no news. I'm still knitting away on two pairs of socks. Working the scarfotis. Started sewing a lamb out of socks last night. Have the stuff cut for a zebra but I ran out of polyfil. Bummer. D said he'd bring some home from work for me if he could remember to buy some. :D We'll see about it.

Today is a good day, no school. But of course I had dreams of school all morning as I slept through my usual time. I had one where I didn't get there until 4th block and my principal was mad because I didn't call and was about to fire me. I woke up thank goodness before he got the chance. And then I had one where someone came in and rearranged my room. Put up these shelves in front of the chalkboard (*chalk where a white board should have been!) and moved my desk and my kids desks. Freaked me out a lot. I hate when I have time off and all I can think about is work. Makes me crazy. :P

Sleet and Prayers

So...we have sleet. In Georgia. And I'm 30+ minutes away from home. Im' not excited about that. Not at all. I keep hoping that they will cut us loose before 4th block and call this a snow day before the roads ice over. Let's all send out a prayer. :D And if they do keep us all day, I'm soo going to skip the faculty meeting. It's been sleeting in Columbus where I live for hours now. And it hasn't gotten any warmer outside, only colder. So I'm thinking I may drive slow and slide home. :P

For the Mason Dixon Ladies

ETA: SCORE! I won. :D Yay. *happy dance* And Ma, we rock. :P

I am a sheep. Baaa. I also love contests. So this is the reason for my posting. I am entering my recipe box, the one we use and the one that sits on top of my fridge.

My mom started this for me when I was in high school. She was going to give it to me for my birthday or something but she got caught or ran out of time or something. So she started it and I finished it. :D So this is a two person project and I've used it for various things since we finished but since I have my own house, I use it for holding recipes. :D

This is the front view.

Open and not at all cleaned up!

And a back view.

You can tell I was a little bubblegum pop, teeny bopper back then. I love it and I have kept it cleaned off since I've been using it. :D

And now for the recipe. This is one from his Mema and it's sinfully easy!

1-2-3 Tuna Pie Serves 6

1 frozen pie crust
6 1/2 oz. can tuna in OIL, drained
1 lb. can Mixed Vegs (veg-all), drained
10 1/2 oz. can cream of mushroom soup, undiluted

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F
Turn pie shell out on wax paper.
Combine tuna, veg-all, and soup in mixing bowl.
Put mixture in pie tin.
Slit crust in several places, place over tuna mixture.

This is yummy, yummy, yummy! Sorry Ma for not sharing any of our families recipes. Truth be told, none of them are written down. :P
