It's Going to be a Messy Day

The overcast sky is starting to lighten. The sun won't be making an appearance today. The forecast calls for a mix of rain, freezing rain, ice pellets and possibly heavy snow. The tracking of the storm is making it difficult to predict what we will ultimately see. The one thing that is sure, it will not be a nice day. The messy, sloppy day, gives me a good excuse to stay home. There are plenty of jobs I need to finish, to keep me from being bored. Somehow, I feel like cinnamon buns. I think that might be how I start my morning. I'll venture into the kitchen and start some dough rising. Then, later this morning we can enjoy some fresh, hot cinnamon buns.

When I got up it was howling windy and sleeting. Those weather guys... you know the ones who are always wrong.... said snow at 9 am it's now snowing like crazy here at 7 am. Supposed to snow until tomorrow morning we are getting between 3 and 8 inches. I'm thinking more like 8. Yuck I was so hoping for no more snow this winter.

Our snow changed to just rain so we are missing all that white stuff. We're supposed to get thunder storms late this afternoon...weird weather for sure

That sounds so nice. Then another UFO after that maybe? I'm probably more interested in the UFOs than you are

I'm working on one. Hopefully the quilting is done in the next two weeks. Then I can tackle at least another one or two. The photo might be upside down.

@Morleyhunt This looks pretty too. Will it be a quilt for a bed?

Do the UFO's reference her quilting and how did you know that before she shared her image of one? I don't get the connection either, but I probably missed a previous post about it?

I took that photo of cinnamon buns for a post on Bubblews. Handy to still have some of those photographs.

Ten more minutes and the oven is turned on to bake them. In 30 minutes they will be served.

@silvermist I didn't make them for years, because I was never happy with the finished buns, but the last three years, I have made them frequently with much better results.

Yesterday we had a rain/snow mix for most of the day. Ther was only about an inch on the ground when I went to bed. Today is supposed to be much colder, but we are forecast to see the sun.

@Morleyhunt It's always a good day when the sun is out.

Our weather is merely wet and miserable, there is no frozen stuff, thankfully. Enjoy those cinnamon buns, and don't let Opa eat them all (or Sandra either).

Sandra is not here today...now keeping hubby and Opa out of the cinnamon buns might prove challenging...but not if I get there first.

I do not use the word bored, when at home. There is always more to do than there is time to accomplish it.

Yes, right! We can enjoy some hot cinnamon buns. Cute. Looks and sounds good, but I enjoyed a bowl of hot oatmeal cereal before heading out for my day today. I thought the snow had stopped, but it looks like we got a bit more again, and it's supposed to continue through the night. Not happy about that, if it does in fact still snow.

That teleport thing isn't working so well. Otherwise I'd love to get together over a hot coffee and some fresh cinnamon buns.

They actually are not difficult. It's waiting for the dough to rise that seems to take a long time.
