About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

In Our Neck of the Woods..

   This is what we have been busy doing here...  Dealing with an ice storm and all the fun that it brings.:)  We lost power for a day, slept in front of the fire "camping style", and "roughed" it a bit, but there were also some nice parts....

   Eating icicles...

   Enjoying the warm fire after being in the cold...


   The birds didn't like the fact that their feeder was frozen, but it sure was pretty!


   It looked like Narnia...


   It appears that Mr. Bunny has turned into Bunnicula!

   I love the red color on our dogwood shrub...

   We got our power back yesterday, but there are still so many fallen trees and power lines.  Our Wal Marts are closed (I didn't think that EVER happened) and so is our Post Office.  I hope that the weather is nice and safe where you are.  Stay warm, my friends.

Glad to hear you only lost power for a day. We lost power for 5 days due to an ice storm a couple of years ago, and it would have been a really miserable experience but for the kindness of a neighbor who allowed us to tap into his generator with a space heater. As it was, we really grew to appreciate the comforts we normally took for granted, and hot coffee never tasted so good as when we had to go out for it after spending cold days and nights without it!
