I Knew You Would Get Here Eventually!

    This print by tastesorangey, an Etsy shop, entitled Blue Monday, shows exactly how I'm feeling today. Not emotionally though. Emotionally I feel great! Got a whole 7 hours of sleep last night, and everything!...But physically? Well, that's another story. And this is why...
    ...As of last night, we are officially under a snow blizzard of sorts, and my bones are not liking it one bit!...The weather forecasters had been threatening that it was coming for a couple of days, but considering how many times we've been threatened about bad weather that never actually came here in Massachusetts, I decided that I would wait and see!
   The wait is now...OVER!...UGH!  *sigh* Snow started falling pretty steady yesterday evening, and along with it, some strong winds. They're saying that we're going to get anywhere from 6 to 11 inches, but they seem to be more concerned with blowing snow {drifts} and visibility.
   Trains being canceled from New York to Boston,  airport and bus delays, in-town programs closed, and school delays and cancellations, all say SNOW STORM!! Massachusetts transit is even encouraging people to stay off of the roads unless they have to go out!...Unfortunately hubby's job didn't think this appied to them. Apparently, just like the mail, NOTHING stops coffee cake and donut route drivers from getting to their intended rounds! ^_^
    Hubby REALLY wanted to stay home today too. He's been 'under the weather' the last couple of days. Upset stomach, mild diarrhea, freezing cold, and not hungry. It was the not hungry part that let me know he wasn't feeling well! Otherwise, he just looked tired and lethargic. {I would've been draped over the bed with a pill bottle in one hand and a pillow in the other! LOL I tend to want people to KNOW I'm sick when I'm sick!!!}
    So, he sipped on tea and snuggled up next to me all day yesterday. Kinda nice...except for the "Don't you get ME sick" thought that kept going through my head!...He slept for 7 hours last night...which he hardly ever does all in one period. Poor baby. :-(
    He said he felt better this morning, but I don't think he was looking forward to cleaning snow off of the car, driving slow behind snow trucks all the way to Connecticut  {where his route starts}, slipping and sliding all over the un-plowed roads in some places, and having to park in odd places and climb snow banks just to get people's Twinkees and snacks in the little mom and pop stores along the way!...In fact, I KNOW he wasn't looking forward to it, because he called me when he got to work and said so! ^_^ He wanted to just come back home!...I wanted him to also. :-(
   I told him I would be feeling his pain today...but in fact I WON'T!! LOL At least not in the same way. I'm going to be dry and warm, crocheting, and looking on every channel for old movies to listen to while I'm working my poor little fingers to the bones, starting hat number two, now that I got the thumbs up on hat number one!! ^_^ Okay, so I'm not going to be taxing myself too much...But I will be thinking of and praying for him. That's a LOT, right?!! LOL
    I guess we can now Officially say goodbye to summer!

   Goodbye Summer.....Hello Winter!

Describe The Sky

Evoking awe and bouts of wonder.
Such inspiration, you just want to cry.
With birds high-flying, and winds a blowing,
what words would you use to describe the sky?

Would you say, whether clouds are upon it,
that it blankets a wondrous space?
Or would you be more awed and humbled,
hoping there you would find God's face?

I would say that when standing quiet,
looking up at the sun or moon,
there's a feeling of peaceful oneness
that I hope won't go away too soon.

Evoking bouts of awe and wonder
was probably what it was designed to do;
That is, besides giving off light and weather,
and the most spectacular view!


  1. Good morning my friend!! Sorry you're getting the snow and we're not. We're in for rain and warmer temps all week. Sorry Jeff had to go to work. Not only are the roads bad, but with him not feeling well, you must be a bit worried. I would be. I worry about everything! Could that be the problem with my stomach? LOL
    I hope you are able to get your crocheting done today with those painful joints! I love the first hat you made!
    Take care and don't get his creeping crud!!

  2. CinLynn, YAY! For a change we're not getting your leftover weather!!... Hey!! Wait! This time I WANT your leftover weather...except for the rain!!! LOL Oh Well...I'm glad for you guys anyway. Enjoy the warmer temperatures while you can!...And what? Are you having problems with your stomach too?! Hubby had that problem yesterday too...a little bit. WATCH OUT!!!...I will be! ^_^

  6. Hollie, Yes, hubby is feeling much better...and he was able to come home early from work too!! The snow was worse in Connecticut. I'm glad it's a short work week. It's no fun having to be out driving around in blizzard conditions...I don't think you'd want THIS kind of snow! :-))

  7. Aw! but the snow looks so purty ; }
    Hope you are not suffering too much from the cold - makes my himalayan trip look benign!
    And our summer seems to have not arrived yet! Still waiting......

  8. planettreasures, Ha! make your Himalayan trip look benign?!! I think not!! More like makes me think I'm "IN" the Himalayas!! LOL I enjoyed the pictures from your "C-O-L-D" trip. If I was you I'd be waiting for summer too arrive quick too! ^_^

  9. I hope your hubby is feeling better. Your brutal honesty is hilarious... does he read your blog? LOL. Love the images as always!

  10. M.A. Wakeley, Yes, hubby is up and back almost to normal...Whatever normal is! LOL And yes, he reads the blog. He never tells me to not write anything either! He's a good hubby. Let's me be me. After 28 years of marriage it's all been said before anyway!! ^_^
