This is how I gauge our snowfall...the bench on the porch, no wind. We got an inch of snow and more on the way today. But I am counting my blessings, no heavy ice. The driveway and road is a bit icy. Praying for relief for all of you that had heavy snow and ice.
This is a sign I bought at Horton's last year. It's a good thing to remember. Christmas kindnesses should last all year. Just smiling even when we want to scream, can make someone's day. I really try my best to be polite to anyone waiting on me, store lines, phone calls, and restaurants. I try to think , maybe they are not having a good day and are at the end of their rope. Oh I have been there plenty, myself.:):)
As I post this photo of our stockings, I know I am going back in the living room and clean that mirror, streaky thing.. Plus I am going to tweak the stuff on the mantle . LOL Are we ever done? Stay safe and warm. xo
34 degrees and raining here right now. I would definitely rather have the snow as this will all freeze up as the temps fall. Good day to stay inside and tweak. xo LauraReplyDelete
Hi Susie, I love this post-your sign is perfect for every day. We got around three-four inches of snow but also temps that dropped below zero-brrr. Thank you for stopping by; we have much in common but with only two daughters and 11 grands, I think I can relate. Hope you have a joy filled, Christ Centered day.ReplyDelete
No Susie, we are never done. lolReplyDelete
No snow here for which I am grateful.
Good Morning Susie, No snow, just the bitter cold. 9 degrees without the wind chill. I am just glad that we went to the doctors yesterday instead of today. We have sunshine, but they are predicting that is all going to change.ReplyDelete
I always enjoy reading your blog. Take care and stay warm. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend.
I have said this before...I would never have any money if I lived close to Hortons. No snow or ice for us in Michigan.ReplyDelete
Hope you don't get too much more, but glad you missed the ice. We have pretty much missed it all. Flurries here last night didn't add up, and it all went south of us. Hopefully will today, too. Love that sign and that saying. Its one of my favorites. Those stockings are so cute. Love plaid. Have a good weekend!ReplyDelete
I've always loved that quote from Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" that you have on your sign. If only we could carry Christmas in our heart all year round.ReplyDelete
We missed the snow and ice here. It's been raining on and off all day here. It got up to the 60s, but now it's down in the 40s and the temperatures are falling. It's going to be a cold one tonight.
Hoping you will continue to stay safe, Susie! Ice is no fun! We have only had rain here.ReplyDelete
I've taken some photos but I keep going back and changing things or adding more thrift store finds. It's fun though. Hope you stay warm and safe this weekend! Hugs!ReplyDelete
I've done a lot of mantel tweaking and I realize there are lots of things I need to tweak. I'm going to do a post tomorrow about it, but I'm happy with my snowman mantel.ReplyDelete
Keep cozy and safe!
It's snowing where you are! It must be a sight for you. I really like your checkered stockings. That's the one thing that I haven't put up yet. Thanks for reminding me. Your sign is wonderful and I love all that it says. The snow is so lovely to see, as I don't see it much where I live.
Have a warm and cozy weekend.
A little dusting of snow would be so wonderful here but it only happens on rare occasion. The wacky Southern weather here hit 80 yesterday with rain. Your place looks so cozy. Stay warm!ReplyDelete
I love this post! People talk about folks being grouchy this time of year, but you never know that that grouchy person might be going through!! I know that quote on your sign is from Charles Dickens and is one that I really love.ReplyDelete
Keep Christmas in your heart, for always!
Sunny and cold here today. Staying inside and need to do my cards and a little more decorating. My christmas cards will have a tree on the outside and the verse will say "Christmas isn't under the tree, Christmas is in your heart" Have a great day.ReplyDelete
Love that sign and your post. I agree, so many people are having it rough now days and sometimes a little kindness goes a long ways. Hope the snow doesn't bury you up there. We're cold here today but yesterday we had the windows and door open. Hugs, xoReplyDelete
That snow looks pretty! It has been too warm here for anything like that. Glad that you didn't get any dangerous ice though! I always worry about trees coming down and power going off during ice storms. I've actually lived through plenty when I was a little girl. You have a great perspective on people's moods around the holidays. I think we all get a little short with each other when we feel rushed and the crowds and traffic are full.ReplyDelete
I love your sign and yes...we need to consider others all year long. Sorry you got that snow! We're to get some tonight and tomorrow...ugggReplyDelete
