Happy Groundhog Day! Early Spring Or 6 More Weeks? AND Phyllis’s Fun Fashion Show!

It’s here!  It’s here!  It’s finally here!


Here on Blueberry Hill this is cause for great excitement.  It’s the day of days!  The moment Phyllis waits for ALL YEAR!

As you may know, this winter on Blueberry Hill has been a crazy one with the weather either unusually balmy for January (you remember those 2 days when it rained and flooded the basement…) or unusually arctic with day after sub-zero day (the vast majority of this frigid January!)

As a result, Some People have spent most of the winter holed up drinking hot chocolate with not-so-mini-marshmallows attempting not to become a groundhog ice cube!

Now, at long last, it’s time to see what everybody’s favorite groundhog has to say: early spring, or 6 more weeks of winter?

And so, Punxsutawney Phyllis, Sage of Sages, Seer of Seers, Prognosticator of Prognosticators, and Weather Prophet Extraordinaire did set forth from her burrow on Blueberry Hill this Sunday February 2, 2014  at 7:25 AM under sunny skies with a calm wind, 82% humidity and 28 degrees, and declare: “There’s my shadow!  6 MORE WEEKS OF WINTER!

Though I am disappointed to hear that winter plans to hang around, I certainly enjoyed watching the show.  Phyllis does everything with flair 🙂  Here she is making her prediction in my Phyllis’s Fun Fashion Show sample (which I totally cheated on by getting my daughter to execute my idea in photoshop because I – shockingly – have not learned how to use it since Monday!)

All Weather Phyllis – idea by me, execution by Katie 🙂

And now, in celebration of Groundhog Day, I want to welcome you to an exclusive showing of top fashion by outstanding designers, some of them very new to the world of fashion – the very hautest in haute couture!

Prepare yourselves…

(and I mean really)

    Thank YOU for playing along with it Vivian! I know how you feel. I have two top favorites too. Fortunately I can't possibly vote because that would be unfair due to the fact that I can see the results and know who is winning… 🙂

  2. Susanna Leonard Hill says:

    No worries, Angela – this is a very tough choice. You don't see ME voting 🙂 As for the weather, you're welcome to join me and Phyllis in the sunny Caribbean – we are planning to beat winter one way or the other 🙂

  3. Susanna Leonard Hill says:

    They really put us to the test, didn't they, Iza? I'll tell you which one was Phyllis's favorite though – the only one that didn't itch, pinch, irritate, or make her feel silly – her own birthday suit 🙂

    This is so much fun. I always enjoy a great fashion show. I would have loved to participate, but have been busy. I wish I could select more than one, but I made my choice.
