A picture of me and Daniel.  We had a lot of fun playing together this weekend.  It is very seldom I get a picture of us together.  I miss you already, Daniel.   He is a very active little boy so he definitely keeps Mommy busy.  We are starting to thaw out a little here.   The snow melted quite a lot yesterday.   We probably still have about 10 inches to melt yet, but we are on the way.  A small storm is coming through today with very little accumulation.  Hopefully there will be church tonight.  We haven’t met on a Wednesday night in about a month.  I think our Friday Ladies Study will meet this week too.  Our driveway and the hill at the barn are passable.  We are starting a Beth Moore study on Esther.  It is my week to do dessert.  I am making something one of the ladies from our Sunday night study gave me the recipe for.  Thanks Faye.  It is extremely easy.  You use ice cream sandwiches, line them up in the bottom of a 9X13 cake pan, cover them with cool whip, drizzle chocolate syrup on that and freeze.  Wow! how easy is that and it is sooooo delicious.  I can hardly wait for the ladies to try it.  I really enjoy trying new recipes.  Well, time for school to start.  I better get busy.  God bless.

Pond

I thought the pond looked very pretty this morning.  The sun was shining and the water looks beautiful.    We need to enjoy this sunshine while we can.  Weather reports are calling for a winter storm tomorrow with significant amount of accumulation.  The girls are excited about this.  Sledding!  Prayerfully we will get to meet tomorrow for Ladies Study.  We are going to meet earlier in the day to avoid anyone getting caught in the snow.  In the 6 years we have been doing this study, I don’t think it has ever been this long since we met.    I counted it up yesterday.  This Friday will make 7 weeks.   No wonder I miss those  ladies.  Today will be filled with the usual things.  School, house cleaning, cooking, eating.  Enjoying the love of family.  I pray I never take the little things for granted.  They are all gifts from God.  Feel free to sit on my porch for a while.  Bring a cup of coffe or tea and enjoy the view.  Warning though, it can become habit forming. God Bless.

Ice

Well the forecast for freezing rain was correct.  Not as much as they first thought but enough.  The first picture is from my dining room window.  It shows the accumulation on the trees.  The second picture is from our kitchen door.  Yes, I know it looks like water running down the yard but it is actually ice.  I’m not very good at guessing ice accumulation but I would think at least a 1/4 of an inch.  Oh well, temperatures are supposed to get above freezing tomorrow so maybe this storm will be short-lived.  More rain coming in on Sunday, though.  School has went very well this week.  We have stayed on schedule and this always makes school more fun.  No bible study today because of the ice.  I certainly do miss those ladies.  It’s been several weeks since we met.  This does happen frequently though in January.   I guess I better get busy.  No bible study means school day.  God Bless.
