Sunshine all Around

Counting our blessings.

The big storm missed us. I don't think we even got an inch. Lots of prayers for those poor souls who did get nailed..... just a couple hours from here it is really bad.

The barn water thawed so we could do chores in the normal manner this morning. You don't know whatchu got til it's gone.....We were looking at hauling enough for all the stock and to wash the pipeline, so not having to do so brought big smiles.

It is a lot warmer than recent days...see above. The best part is there are hardly any birds coming in. Although I like to see them, when there is a crowd, you know what comes next....a nasty storm.

The boy made it safely to DC...always a big worry for his mama. I was so happy to get that phone call last night that he was there okay.

And the little peanut above brightens the days more than a little, especially when she isn't teething up a storm of her own.

Thank heaven for small comforts -- like thawed barn water and meager snow. And thank heaven too for enormous joys -- like small snuggly people with fuzzy hair that shines like gold. Adorable!

That little peanut gets more adorable every day. I need hugs!!!
Love Mom.
Ps it was good to see you and Alan the other day. He is quite a young man!
Love Mom

Glad the storm missed you!

Maybe that smile held the storm at bay ;)

Peggy, you are too cute for words!!

Cathy said...

Oh my gosh. Oh my gosh. That is one of the sweetest pictures ever. Jacqueline said what I wanted to say - but better :)

I've been looking at the unbelievable pictures of Buffalo snow today. Really glad it missed you.

Keep the baby pictures coming.

Danielle Dorso said...

So glad you're all ok! Peggy grows more adorable every day. :)

Jacqueline, I woke up worrying about it...we don't really need to milk the two cows every day as the calf takes care of that pretty much, but we wanted milk for the house and not to have to haul all the water in pails. it was such a relief that it thawed!

Mom, isn't she cute! One of these days they will bring her up. Love you...and it was wonderful to get to visit you guys too. He insisted and I was glad he did.

Nita, we are so grateful. And so concerned for the western parts.

Thanks, Cathy, she is a dear and we are fortunate to have her close.

Jan, staggering isn't it? I shudder to think how heavy that snow will be on roofs if it does get up to fifty this weekend. Surely hope it doesn't rain.

Dani, thanks and thanks again. We are really grateful that it missed us.

Terry and Linda said...

Oh, good! I was seeing all the photos on the news and wondering how you were!

Linda, it is quite a ways from us. I guess the demarcation between getting really nailed and not getting anything significant was pretty well-defined. Really nasty for those inside the storm area.
