Snowing in Quincy - Day 282

It looks like the weathermen were right about our snow storm today. It isn't going to stop snowing until tomorrow night unless it turns to rain on the South Shore. If it stays as snow we could get 8-12 inches. I am so glad to be watching it from a warm home with plenty of wine and food.

I went to the South Shore Plaza this afternoon to pick up a few things. Would you believe I told the chanel lady the make-up was to expensive and I didn't buy it. I must be ill. Thank goodness I know a Mary Kay rep that I will be calling soon. A bottle of chanel moisturizer was $175 dollars. I will be deteriorating fast. Maybe I should have asked Santa for it.
