I went to Buffalo once ...

and it was closed! Seriously. Both my brothers live in Buffalo, and both are without power and not expected to be back on the grid until sometime next week! To torture them, I called each and made them listen to the coffee grinder as payback for years of little sister abuse! What a freak storm. So they're freezing, and I'm painting! This is the first coat of the living room, and the alcove that goes out to the deck. I had to go back to Home Depot twice to get the right shade of green. Why do things look so different in the store?




Here's last night's hockey hat -- a wild and crazy chemo cap for the local hospital.





It's loosely based on the sparkly hat from Stitch -n- Bitch, with flower shaped sequins.





Well, back to do the second coat. And rest up for tonight's game against the Rangers -- in true Buffalo style, the City may be in a state of emergency, but the puck will drop. Go Sabres!

Gosh, a snow storm in mid October! Hope everything settles down soon in Buffalo!
I *so* love the cap you did, how totally funky and cool it is - just perfect! And yay for the game tonight - 4 fingers crossed for the Sabres, 6 for the Rangers - oy! ;) Nooo, please, don't stick that needle in my eye! ;)

Hey,nice blog!!! I found a place where you can make an extra $800 or more a month. I do it

part time and make a lot more than that. It is definitely worth a visit! You can do it in your

spare time and make good cash. Make

Glad you weren't involved in the snow problems but I hope your family members get back their power soon. Do you hear the Sabres brought back generators from Detroit the other night? And holy cow, did we kick some Ranger butt or what?!?!! Woo hoo!! :)
