It's back....

After a good melting that has cleared 90% of the snow but also has flooded the stalls, we had hopes that Winter was behind us.  But no.....

Last night we started with fierce downfalls of rain, thunder and hail that turned to slushy snow that turned to pure snow and we ended up with another 4 inches to cover what was uncovered once again.....  No school today and 2 very bored little girls with parents that have to work besides the tumultous weather.

Oh well, someday it will warm up and I will rejoice when that day comes.

Today's Sunrise 
"May today there be peace within. May you trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith in yourself and others. May you use the gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you. May you be content with yourself just the way you are. Let this knowledge settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love. It is there for each and every one of us."

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

The Good

I have 10.8 pounds since following Weight Watchers 2 weeks ago.  I feel good and have been making good progress.

The Bad

I have 60 more to go thanks to the tornado that displaced us in a hotel for almost 4 months with only restaurant food to choose from.

The Ugly

It is 10 degrees out there and poor Eva was even covered in frost, in her stall to boot which is usually 10 degrees warmer from the other 4 stalled horses!

Winds Through The Boughs

I am often touched by the delicacy of life in mid winter.  Outside our office windows we have a beautiful silver needle pine tree and at this time of year the birds are starting to return and the small swallows have been finding refuge under the bows of that said tree.  As I watch I see them land and the wind then sends them fluttering off to the neighboring fields only for them to return and try again.

Spring is right around the corner and it could not be soon enough.  Someday they will return here:

For the Love of Words


Your mission is to look up these words and learn the meanings, it is always good to learn something new.
