Snow

100_4964

We are getting snow here this morning, hoping it stays snow and not ice or sleet.  Predictions are for 3-5 inches.  I don’t think it will accumulate that much though but we will have to wait and see.  This picture is from our bedroom window upstairs.  If you look to the right of the picture, you can see the pond with the snow that has laid on the ice.  The good news is that it has warmed up!  Temperature of  15 this morning when we got up and hardly any wind.  YEAH!

Last night our youth did their Christmas play at church.  We were scheduled to do it Sunday but since we have had to cancel two Sundays in a row, the youth leader thought we should do it last night, just in case.  It went very well.  The kids did great.  I should have taken my camera and got some pictures  but, of course, I forgot.  We did school yesterday, caught up on some laundry, wrapped some gifts, all the ordinary things.  There is a lot to be said for just doing ordinary things.  It brings a sense of peace, I think. 

We experience some smoke problems the night before, so we let the fire go out yesterday.  Hubby checked the pipes when he came home.  All was well.  Not sure what caused it.  Maybe just the direction the wind was blowing.  This summer, we put a topper on the chimney pipe.  It is supposed to turn with the wind to keep the wind from blowing the smoke back down the chimney.  We had such a problem with that last winter.  Anyway, all looked well yesterday so hopefully it will not happen again.

Well, we have things to do.  I pray your day will be full of joy.  God bless.
