I am confused.  Is it spring or not?  Yesterday was just so sunny and beautiful.  Today, we had freezing rain.  It rained most of the day.  Luckily it didn't stick to the roads  But this is one of the trees in my front yard with ice on it.

I couldn't believe it.

Have a great evening.

Winter 2014

We woke up Saturday morning to 3 inches of snow and lots of snow drifts.  My front yard looked like a snow plow had dumped snow in it, but it was actually from snow drifts.  This winter has been amazing.  Record amounts of snow, two deep freezes with below zero temps, and winds chills even lower. 

February is usually the coldest month.  I just don't know what to expect. 

If you are in the North, please stay warm.  If you are down South, enjoy the milder days.

New Year, New Look

I have decided to make all of the pages look alike.  I went with blue for the winter months.  I might change it for Valentine's Day, but it will depend on how much time I have over the next six weeks.

I didn't take this picture.  It was taken by a local photographer, Lad Strayer.   This is downtown Adrian.  I thought the picture was perfect for a wintery day.

We went home to South Carolina and Alabama for the holidays.  It was a great trip.  We got home yesterday and I am still digging out.  Usually I leave my house clean when we go on vacation, but not this time.  I had too many others thing inferring.  So have a normal cleaning to do and all of the unpacking.

I like to defrost the freezer at the beginning of the winter, so since we had single digit temperatures and snow falling all day.  I decided to get it done.  After several hours, it is finished.  Every thing is once again organized.  I wish it would stay this way, but it won't.

This is about it for now.  I will try to come back later in the week.

Saturday Round-up

I am so terrible about posting a recap.  I will try to be better.

I have been working alot and my migraines have been really bad.  I have a doctor's appointment next week and I hope we can figure something out.  I am tried of having a migraine constantly.

The only thing that I have added in the last couple of weeks is new cards.  Even though, I am not thinking straight, it does help to relax a little bit and making cards is definitely relaxing.

I hope to get to the park this week to take some fall pictures before it is too late.  I may even stop on the way to the doctor's office and get some of a local pond.

There isn't any thoughts for this week.  I will hopefully have some next week.

Have a great week.

Sunday Round-Up

Since I always seem to get busy on Saturday and the round-up never gets done, I am going to try Sunday and see if I can do better on Sunday.

The only changes to the site are on the stamping page.  I haven't done as much as I was during the summer but I am still trying to find the time to make something.  I do have a few new recipes I want to add to the recipe page.  Hopefully this week.  I also have some new pictures of family to add to the photo page.

Thoughts of the week:
1)  My In-Laws have come and gone.  It was a quick but fun visit.  It is always fun spending time with family.

2)  It was homecoming weekend at school this past week.  It was busy but once again it was fun watching the kids.  The football team even won the game.  Congrats to all of the football players.

3)  Starting mid-week it was very humid.  We finally got the rain today and I am really enjoying the fall temperatures now.  I hope it stays this way.

4)  My nephew asked his girlfriend of over 5 years to marry him.  She said yes and I am so excited for both of them.  I may be wrong but I am expecting a long engagement.  I love the excitement of engagements.  I hope both will be happy.

I hope every one has a great week.

Saturday Round-Up

Hello.  I hope everyone is having a great weekend.  I went to do this early and I got a phone call and then never made it back.  I seem to always be late doing this.  I think it is because late evening is when the house gets quiet and I get a lot done during that time.

I feel like I am still in my slump as far as cards go, but I am slowly getting out of it.  I made several cards this week and most I even liked, so that is better.  I didn't get any thing else added to the site, but I have high hopes for next week.

Thoughts of the week:
   1) My In-Laws will be visiting in a couple of weeks.  I am really looking forward to a visit with them.  Plus my son will be coming home the same weekend, so he can spend some time with them also.
   2)  Because of the visit, I will be doing some major straighten around the house.  It will be busy, but I will feel great after I get it all done.  We are even looking at new mattresses.
   3)  Today was college football day around this house.  University of Alabama had a big game today against Texas A&M.  It was a great game and Alabama came out on top.  Hip Hip Hooray!!!
   4)  I am so glad to see the Fall lineup of TV shows starting back.  I hate when every thing is reruns.  Sons of Anarchy started this week.
That is about it for now.  Chat with all of you later.  Have a great week.
