Road Trip

Mom and I are headed to Farmville VA today to shop for a new rug for my kitchen. We are off to Greenfront furniture http://www.greenfront.com .

Greenfront has acres and acres of oriental rugs. In fact every oriental in my home has come from there. It’s less expensive to buy here and ship to California than to buy in California. I have purchased the most amazing rugs at Greenfront and highly reccomend them if you are passing through Virginia.

The snow has been cleared off the roads and it’s a sunny cold day with snow covered mountains surrounding us. So it should be a great road trip to bond with mom and enjoy the beauty.

5' 3"" x 7' 9" Pakistan incredibly knotted from a village that has stopped producing. New for the kitchen floor. Per AM's request I post the new addition!

Ok…This is just not my thing!

Fearsome in the snow.

Last night I flew into Virginia to visit the parental units. The storm over the Carolinas was supposed to stay down there. Not. As we landed there was a light snow and it stopped at 8 this morning. There’s about 4-5 inches of new snow out there. It’s pretty to look at and that’s about it.

I haven’t been in a fresh snow since I left Seatlle 24 years ago. Since I’m with the parental units and they are 32 years older than me, it’s time to get to shoveling. Wish me luck! More later…
