I really don’t have anything to say about the weather. Whatever I write today will sound odd when you read this because the weather will be completely opposite. One day I can’t seem to get warm, and the next we’re sitting on the porch. This winter just can’t decide what it wants to do.
This Sunday will be a happy day in the Sloppy house! Dorothy Sloppy will turn 90 years old and we know that she’ll be surrounded by her family & gifts!

If one of your resolutions was to look inward, there is a wonderful retreat this Saturday at the Arts and Activities Center.

Knitting can be a wonderfully expressive craft, and one that it perfectly suited to the winter months.

So I think instead of dividing our time by some wishing for snow, and some wishing for spring, we could come together and perhaps solve this Virginia winter dilemma. We only need to wish for one thing: consistency. Call or email me with your Ashland news: 310-5320, firstname.lastname@example.org. Enjoy your weekend!
