WWC--Envy and Triangle

Actually, my WWC is only envy and it's a bit of a stretch. I couldn't think of anything for triangle, but as r.e.h. said last week, I covered triangle with my picture of the cutting mat. Plus, the quilt blocks had triangles in them, so I think I'm ahead of the game!

The WWC is brought to us by the wonderful Tink of Pickled Beef.

I envy the way Cosette can sleep so soundly.

Did you play?

In other news, Al had the winter crud the last few week and is finally feeling better. A lot of people seem to have this, and come to think of it, he had this crud around this time last year.

I had a proud moment on Thursday. We got around 3 or 4 inches of snow that day, after Al went to work of course. I decided that I really should clear the driveway and sidewalks because the sun was coming out and maybe there would be lots of melting. I also bow to peer pressure and most of our neighbors had cleared their driveways already.
But I remembered how last year I shoveled snow when it was extremely cold and I got really sick with MS symptoms. I needed to use the snow blower, but Al hadn't given me my yearly "this is how you use the snow blower" lesson. But Warrior Lass doesn't need some man to show her how to use a monster piece of machinery with huge, sharp blades! No! And I think Warrior Lass needs to make a reappearance around here! So, I got the instructions and followed step-by-step how to use the snow blower.

Less than an hour later, everything was cleared, and with the sun shining on my achievement, I cleaned off the machine and put it back in its place of honor in the garage.

Next, the table saw.

Congrats on conquerig the snowmobile. The fact that you mention table saw scares me a bit.

Great pictures of Cosette as usual.

Betty said...

Table saw? Now, now. Don't do anything rash.

Not as much of a stretch as my "envy" picture.

Just be sure to be careful with that snow blower. It's a monster! LOL ;-)

Awww... Cosette is so cute, I have puppy envy! So see? It counts!

Way to go with the snow blower - that's great. I would have been a weanie and waited for my husband. Good for you!

Peggy said...

Well done with the snow blower! You know that you'll have to use it more often now that you've admitted to being able to use it. Make these big leaps of progress but don't tell Al!

I can't do the power saw. It's way to loud and scary.

You have conquered the snow blower - congrats! Now, if one lived someplace where snow never came down... one wouldn't need to conquer a snow blower ;)

This weeks WWC was a tough one. I'll have mine up later today.

Now, that is a good envy picture. Dogs and children sleep like they do not have a care in the world! :)

Tink said...

I envy that my dogs get to sleep all day. :)

I was going to use Lucy again in my WWC but 1. I'm really angry with her right now and 2. I was worried that everyone is tired of looking at her. (silly huh?)

Three cheers for Warrior Lass! Her bravery in the face of dangerous machines will be remembered in songs and legends.

I've never used a snowblower. I'm even scared of my gas BBQ.

Our envy pictures are similar, only mine is of the feline persuasion!

Wow, you tackled the snowblower monster. I haven't made it quite that far yet!

You are my hero Warrior Lass - I don't even know where our snow blower instructions are.........
