Ok its time to get serious. Well business is slow hopefully due to the snow. I love snow. I hate snow. It is so beautiful and it messes everything up. I can't get out and run. No one wants to go out to eat. The kids have missed a whole week of school. Yet I can't help but being mesmerized and excited when I see it falling and it creates a quiet shimmer over the landscape and even the rock quarry across the river looks magical.

This morning I woke up to about an inch of snow outside. It does not snow much here in Salem Oregon so its kind of a big deal. I left for work and had to go the long way to avoid the hills. This makes for a very slow day the restaurant because no one likes to drive in the snow, but closing is not an option because there may be 1 or 2 or 5 people who would like some ham and eggs for breakfast and for those we will pay two cooks a server and all the electricity and gas etc... so they can sit back watch the lovely view of the river and the snow falling, listening to Christmas music and sipping coffee while smelling the bacon cooking. Hey, I want to go out for breakfast!!!

I knew this was going to challeng me a bit but I did not know that it was going to be so hard. I really have plenty to say but I have a very hard time putting it to words. Plus everytime I sit down to type someone needs me. Well I am determined to stick it out. I had so much fun in MO. It was really good to see Heather and her wonderful family.
