Had a bunch of errands to run today during our freak snow storm...
Dropped off one batch of mail that needed to go out, to lovely ladies on my team..
Still have some Christmas batches to get finished and in the mail. .
The weather was much better over in Ohio.
Putting air in your tires each time the weather gets cold is annoying...
Standing out in the wind in 26 degrees is pretty chilly when you forget to take a coat with you...
So after post office, nails getting done, grocery shopping, Sam's Club trip, getting gas for $2.01, and air in my tires.... I decided to warm my self up with a white chocolate latte from Dunkin donuts....
I should have gotten a bigger cup...
It was delicious. ..
Especially after my little army guy poking a hole in the bottom of my Ice tea, and drenching me with Chick-fil-A Ice tea.
This was right before I stood out in the cold filling my tires with air. ..
And I never even got a drink of that tea either....
Filled my cup holder in my car, and I held the rest out the car window and watched it drain all over the road in Ohio while sitting at the stop light. .
What an adventure tonight. .
The snow covered drive home with my latte and listening to old Christmas music from the 40's, was just about perfect...
Freddie has had a busy summer! Don’t let the golden suntan fool you, Freddie has been hard at work! In June he joined the design team in Troy, NY for 4 days of engaging with the public to gather ideas for the Riverfront Esplanade extension and brainstorming One Monument Square. Mr. Gnomestead played a critical role during the design workshop, public outreach sessions, and public presentations! #gnomeonthego #lovetroy #design #upstatenyasla #landscapearchitecture #urbanplanning
Hello it's me, my Gnome face and my low key social justice glasses! ...
Knitting Gnome has been missing for a few days & I just couldn’t think where he could be. I’ve just opened my emails to find out that he’s gone on holiday to Paris with our wonderful @workofheartgarden
& his family! Thankyou Mikal for everything you do for us ( including Gnomenapping!)
Knitting Gnome has now got to be called Pierre after such adventures hasn’t it?
You can all see him on display with his Gcommunity of gnomes @rhsmalvern
in only 21 day time.
As each day passes I get more confident that we will raise #50kforken
Follow along as I do an Instagram takeover of @freddie_gnomested

We had a fantastic day working with the Restoration Ecology Students at Mount Holyoke College on Phase II of the restoration of Project Stream. It is a perfect example of a project that uses science to inform the design solution; created wetlands, boardwalks, outdoor classrooms, fluvial geomorphology, overlooks, wildlife blinds, stream crossings, interactive educational signage, weather station, and tons of monitoring! A park for the future! #gnomeonthego #mountholyokecollege #landscapearchitecture #placealliancenortheast #ecologicaldesign

I went to @homedepot
to get this Belt Sander..then I saw of you buy the Hammer Drill Kit (Drill,charger,battery and carrying case)you get a tool for free from @ryobipowertools.
So I said “What the heck! And bought the kit to get the free tool! Spent an extra $40 more than my wife thought I would, but asked for forgiveness and am now working on my project again!
