Slightly used snowmobile for sale

This was the sight outside my window this morning. No, the snowmobile does not belong to me and my family. This is our neighbor's ball of fire. The son was starting up his new snowmobiles and one backfired and caught on fire. They were in the garage at the time bolted to the trailer. He got the one with the full tank of gas off the trailer but the other one was out of control by then. He pulled it out to the driveway. My husband sprayed it with our fire extinguisher but it was too far gone by then. The fire department came out and it took awhile to extinguish the fire. Just a little excitement on a Monday morning!

In other exciting news my preview order from the Spring/Summer catalogue is supposed to be delivered today. I'm hoping to get to play with my new goodies tonight and have something to show you tonight or tomorrow.

My husband continues to work on my craft room. He has installed the floor, painted, and put the cabinets in. He's finishing up the cabinets in my room. He still has to make the countertop and install it. He does everything from scratch. My basement is still taken over by all of my craftroom supplies. It's kinda hard to work down there but I can't really complain. I will have a brand new craft room soon! He still needs to install the ceiling and lighting. Then we will need to go to Ikea to get storage for the other half of my room. It's exciting to see it take shape!
