The Sun Is Out.....

   Took a shot of the sun thru the blinds. :) I am happy to see the sun today. Yesterday was almost too gray for me. But then I know I should just zip it....since so many of you are being hit hard with this huge storm. You are in my prayers.
   I have to enjoy this wonderful blue sky today. I may venture into town , to the antique store....my chair is still there. Remember all I had to do was be good and I would have gotten that chair  for Christmas...you want to know what being good did for me...I got a new faucet for the kitchen sink. LOL  No kidding. I love it though.
  See that glorious sun peeping over the shop?  I am loving it. I am hoping the clear skies last into the night. As there will be a full moon, the Wolf Moon, tonight.
  Oh my little fellow looks frozen this morning.  I will check him out later to see if the sunshine can revive him.  Hope so.
  Be safe today everyone.  Yes, it's certainly okay to drive slowly when the roads are nasty.  Please. XO

    1. Missy, You are certainly in my thoughts and prayers. I was hoping that storm would have just blow out to sea...not hangingaround to dump so much snow. It's pulling moisture in from the ocean too. Please be safe. Bless you, xoxo,Susie

  6. I know how much you love the sun! Glad it's showing its face for you today! Our skies are blue here in Texas but we were glued to the TV this morning watching all that snow along the east coast! Boggles my mind!!

    1. Linda, I do not know how the people who get those huge snows do it. It would scare me. Just weight of that much snow on the roofs is scary.I am not crazy about shoveling the drives , I sure would not want to shovel the roof. I am praying for all of them. Remember Boston had 9 feet of snow last year all thru their season. YIKES. Blessings to all of you. Love, Susie

  9. Hi sweet friend, Your landscape and sunshine looks the same as ours. We reached mid50's today and were able to walk a bit over a mile. Lots of snow on the ground still, but today helped melt it. Tomorrow the white stuff returns-ugh! Hope you have a wonderful Sunday!
    Hugs, Noreen

  11. I love sunshine on snow! You have just enough to be pretty without the hassle.
    We haven't had mail delivery in two days. But we have electricity back on today, which we lost yesterday. With temps falling to 13 tonight I'm very thankful that heat is running now!

    1. Dewena, I am glad you have your power back....that the things that scares me...losing power. Some of the home will have tons of weight on their roofs from this snow...that is very scary also. You are in my prayers. Stay warm, blessings to all, xoxo, Susie

    1. BJ, I joked about the faucet...but that is what we decided on. Ted and I do not buy gifts for each other...it's usually something we need for the house. That facet was something we needed. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

    1. I am thankful for every day truly...but oh to have a beautiful sunny day in winter is heavenly. The people of our east coast are going to suffer a few days...I pray they have power and get the snow off their roofs and the roads cleared. Blessings to you and yours, xoxo, Susie

    1. Wanda, It seems so much for the coast. I saw there was even flooding on the Jersey coast, broke my heart for those people..you know it was like hurricane Sandy all over again. Blessings to you, xoxo, Susie

  18. Susie, I love that sunshine as well! Can't imagine living somewhere that has grey skies for months on end. Even when it snows in Ut it's not long before we see sunshine. Yes, some are being hit hard and I hope al are safe! Hope you get your chair. :) Went to a vintage sale today with a couple of friends. Had a fabulous time.

    1. Jann, Sunshine in winter helps get me thru. I wish I had friends who would go to sales or junking with me. MY daughter Kathy would , but she lives over two hours away. Yes, I am still praying for the east coast, it's scary to see the waters flooding the Jersey coast..yet again. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

  19. Susie, doesn't the sun feel good after a few days of snow? It is sunny here this week, but this weekend supposed to rain again. The sun looks beautiful peeking its head through all the snow in this picture, Susie. I have a blog friend in Philadelphia, and she is experiencing heavy snow right now. In some areas, they are calling it a monster storm.

    love, ~Sheri

    1. Sheri, It can be bitter cold and seeing the sun shining makes me not dread winter so badly. I think this last snow storm has been crazy...dumping almost 4 feet of snow in places and a few inches in others. A friend in Boston said they got 6 inches and last year , remember they had 9 feet of snow for the season. Holy cow.....where to start digging? The sad part is how some people lost their lives...breaks my heart. We hada cloudy day today and will have rain soon. Hope you do not have too much rain. Blessings, xoxo, love you, Susie
