Summer....I want you back!

Goofing off at the apple orchard....

I want those days again. It's WAY TOO COLD for me right now!! We have to keep the heat in our house at 60 degrees because of a pipeline explosion in Canada. I'm so looking forward to the call that tells us we can go back to our normal gas usage! I'm in long johns and sweats, 3 layers of shirts, gloves, hat and scarf and STILL cold!!

Learning to stay positive....

It's coming

I've learned SO much about myself in the last year. It was the best AND worst year of my life....if you can understand that. Which, I admit, sounds weird. But out of a really bad situation came so many more wonderful things. So I believe that we live through the bad so we can discover the good.

Let me explain: Something bad happened. Then, an opportunity presented itself. It was an opportunity that could potentially make this "bad thing" a little better. And it did. But what really blossomed out of this opportunity were so many wonderful blessings that I had never anticipated. Like a flower that just keeps blooming and blooming.

And I know that even greater things have yet to come!

I am a Scorpio ;)

It's been the perfect day: snowy and cold outside but the fireplace is on and the stew is cooking - making the house smell glorious! I finally took the time to clean off my desktop and get rid of stuff that was cluttering it up. I love having newly freed space on my computer!!

My dog pooped today! It was a joyous occasion because she ate a bunch of tinfoil the other day and it had been about 2 days since her last, movement.

Today I'm thankful for my sweet friends. They listen with their hearts. I love you girls.
