Here comes the sun, but not the heat!

sun after snow

About 2:30 today, the sun finally peaked through the clouds and shortly after, there were blue skies, which was a welcome site after 4 days of dreary and cold days.  Last night we were only supposed to receive 1", however we got 4-5" and once again the roads were doubly bad because the inch of ice that came on Tuesday hasn't melted.  I haven't been out of the house since Monday and the farthest I've ventured is to my mailbox, and we all know how that went in my slippers!

Smile:  What did I smile about today?
The sun of course.  I really needed some vitamin D and
seeing that great ball peak through the clouds was exactly what I needed to feel like there was hope that this winter weather would be heading out soon!

Celebrate:  What did I celebrate today?
  I celebrate that the temperatures are on the rise and am hopeful that this ice and snow will go away soon!  This certainly solidifies my belief that I don't want to live in a cold weather climate, although living in one means they know how to handle this, where we in TX, not so much!
I also celebrate that someone exhibited courage to confront a difficult situation and while I'm sure was difficult, was necessary to move forward.

Love:  What do I love?
I love my wireless connection that hung in there this week and allowed me to work at home without feeling guilty for not being in the office!  So grateful to have been prepared for this mess and so happy that this week is over!

Thought for the day:   Just when you think all hope is gone a little red bird appears and lets you know that it's all going to be alright!

May you all see some redbirds soon to bring you hope and peace. Thanks Bon for sharing...much needed today!

Keep warm and safe out there!

Added bonus to warm you up--I know it does me!

  1. The past 2 weekends I have seen a red bird while out on my bike rides. All of the other little birds that are around them are dark and not really all that special... not like the red bird. It reminded me that we all have a little red bird in us.
