well… okay… not we… he… there was enough for that!
they say we got a foot… i’m thinking… that’s one BIG foot!
must seem like more in some areas… more accumulation.

all i know… the girlies were in hog heaven!
it was like a winter wonderland surprise!

the things kids do!

hot cocoa was the drink of choice over the weekend…
as you can imagine.
i think we went through a whole bag of mini marshmallows!
my word… that makes my teeth hurt just thinking about it!

the crazy thing in all this… we hit single digits over the weekend…
and NOW…
we are expected to climb back into the fifties later in the week!
this should gives us a chance to thaw out and enjoy FALL!

happy monday yall… 
“cheers” to the fresh week at our feet!

frigid friday

would you believe they’re calling for single digit temps…
and we’re not talking wind chill here… that’s actual.  wow!

think it might be time to bring in the patio furniture… just maybe.

i have a feeling…
this weekend… we’ll be building our FIRST snowman of the season!
wow!

tell me… how is it today “in your neck of the woods”?
find it neat… all the extremes!

are you seeing snow too?
is the rain still falling there?
you wearing flip flops?
do tell!

cheers to YOU on this BEAUTIFUL friday!

oh the spikes of life!

often we KNOW they are there so we try to avoid them…
walk around them.

sometimes they SNEAK up when we least expect it…
popping out of the ground RIGHT in front of us.

they can even be adorned… disguised to look innocent & pretty…
all the while it was the devil holding the stem.

hurtful… painful… disappointing… they ARE.

the spikes of life are inevitable.
some are WAY bigger than others…
some will stick & stay around a while…
some will knock us to our knees.

the thing about it…  we will ALL face them…
large… small… simple… life CHANGING… they will be there.

convinced… and learning more each day…
with HIS glove… HIS armor… HIS grace…
we can reach in… reach out… stand up… BE STILL…
for there is no thorn that will defeat us!
