So this is what I woke up to this morning. See this little chair, I am suppose to be sitting in the sun soaking up sunshine in it, might not be a good idea to do that today. :-)
Here's a shot of my neighbor's yard. It's also windy and cold and think of the three most dreaded words in the history of man, "wind chill factor" (horrible, ugly words). The high today will be something like 24 degrees and the low will be 9 degrees.
And this is where God really intended me to be today. LOL I know, some of you really love this snowy weather and I don't remember when my dislike of it started. I think it was somewhere in the early 1990's when I was driving an Aerostar minivan in the winter and taking the kids all over the place. That car was the worst car ever made to drive in the snow. I live in a part of Cincy that is really hilly and that little minivan would be all over the road, even just stopping at a red light would make the thing slide. I remember one day parking the minivan at the top of our hilly driveway in the snow and looking out the window later in the day and it was in the neighbor's (second photo) yard. The emergency brake was on, it had just rolled down the hill and stopped in their yard. I was so thankful no little ones were out or other cars were coming down the street at the time. My little car that I have now has a feature on it that says snow driving, I haven't tried it yet because I've just had this car since last Spring but since I don't need to go anywhere today I'll just wait to test it. Sometimes it's nice to work from home. Hope you all had a wonderful New Year's. We stayed in and grilled out and were asleep early. Here's something I found in my little devotional book to start the New Year off.
~Therefore I live for today~
~Certain of finding a sunrise~
~Guidance and strength for the way~
~Power for each moment of weakness~
~Hope for each moment of pain~
~Comfort for every sorrow~
~Sunshine and joy after the rain~
