    I need some blueberries and lemon. Strawberries can’t be beat dipped in chocolate.

    What kind of camera do U have that U can take a picture so close up that looks like a picture in a mag.?

    We have 2 inches of ice/sleet, and could get several inches of snow tonight. It’s so bad that my husband is off work today and Wed too. There will be a lot of working on Sats. and Suns. to make it up.

  3. I hope your weather gets much nicer soon! I can’t wait for spring. I have a couple of different cameras that I use, and I appreciate the compliment! I got a Nikon Coolpix for Christmas, and I’ve used it for many of the pictures.
