Late December


Late December and there’s the sense and the feeling in the air that the winter has definitely set in.  I know what’s in store for us.  Weeks and days of weather that chills to the bone.  It’s almost soup and stew season for me once New Year’s Day has past.  Then we settle in for a long three months but we will fill the air with the smell of homemade beef stew or potato soup.

Thursday Afternoon


It started snowing here this morning.  It wasn’t suppose to according to the weather forecast but when do they usually get that right?  Not that often around here.  Now it’s partly sunny out there and they’re talking some snow later on.  Snow later on?  Ugh!  We’ll see what actually happens later on.

I’ve forgotten how much energy that it takes to keep up with two six year olds.  They wear me down fairly quick and I enjoy “quiet time” even if they don’t.  I wish I had their energy all of the time.
