Snowy Saturday

It’s snowing here!

I’m staying in today. It feels great just to stay home, cook, and wash clothes. (Yes - I'm enjoying washing clothes...) It’s beautiful outside with the snow falling. It’s even more beautiful inside snuggled up on the couch with a blanket, sipping hot cocoa, and reading a book with no where to go!

Neil is working a jigsaw puzzle while watching a “Walton’s” DVD.

We are such exciting people!

I’m reading this series of books.

I read the first one when it first came out and never got around to reading the last two. I had to re-read the first one to remember the story. (That’s a sign that I’m not as young as I used to be….) I have one left in the series. Is it just me or do you hate to read the last book when you read a set of books? It’s like ending an old familiar friendship!

I’m fixing a beef roast with potatoes, onions, and carrots in the oven, white beans with ham, boiled cabbage, and cornbread for supper. There’s nothing like comfort food on a cold snowy day!

Hope your Saturday is calm and restful too!

First Post in Many Moons!

Life has been so busy on my end of the world lately! I haven’t posted in forever! With work, ice storm, wind storm, going to the doctor for my neck issues (long story for later), and jury duty, I don’t know which end is up most of the time!

Sunday we went to church with Alan, Susan, and Jennie. We had such a great day spending time together. After church, we did a little shopping. Susan and Alan’s grill was destroyed in the wind storm we had last week so they decided to look for a new one at Kmart. I couldn’t believe all of the outdoor stuff they already have out for Spring.

Jennie had to try out the little chairs in the garden section.

She is now 18 months old and never slows down!

Can you tell she loves chocolate?

I love her little black shoes and tights….

She always crosses her little ankles.

Justyn left on Monday for a trip to Charlotte, NC. He will be gone all week for training. This is the first time he has ever flown. He said that it went well and seemed like no time and he was there.

I know – he’s 28 and I need to “cut the apron strings”!

I did hide a few little "Mama" notes in his suitcase….

He will always be my little boy.....

All 230 pounds and 5 feet, 10 inches of him….

I took this picture Sunday night while I was helping Justyn pack.

I don’t think Max was excited about him going.

It’s like he knew he would be gone for awhile.

(Oh pooh - blogger is giving me font problems again!)

Hope you have a great Wednesday! We have a chance of snow flurries tonight, tomorrow, and Thursday. We will be fine - as long as we don’t get ice!
