A Day in my Life

I just discovered this youtube video that is spot on.  I have sold beds for 20 years and I guarantee this lady comes into the store everyday. I only wish I could actually say some of the things this guy is saying.  Enjoy.

We Did Get Some Snow

Well, we did get some snow.  It came down slowly and with very little wind so it didn't feel like much of a storm.  I ended up going out 4 times yesterday and now have been out twice today.  I went out early this morning so the Rev could get to the church and then just now for what I hope is the final pass.

I really don't mind this type of snow storm.  It came with plenty of warning and just slowly and calmly dropped snow on our lives.  It was a little bit deceptive in that it never looked like much when you looked out the window.  Just a light snow falling, very pretty in fact.  But it parked over us for about 30 hours, so it ended up dropping a significant amount.

This the type of snow that makes living in the north enjoyable.  No one really needed to be injured by this storm.  It just came in and made everything white.  Our neighborhood will look clean and bright for a few days now, that should be nice.

Our First Real Snow Storm This Winter

Looks like Des Moines is going to get hit by our first real snow storm of this winter season.  We had a light snow for Christmas - just enough to make it white and then it melted by the new year.  But right now we are on the front edge of a slow moving storm that is predicted to dump up to 6 inches of snow on my driveway.

I think Stan here has the right idea.  Actually I have already been out once this morning and blew off the driveway and sidewalks.  It really wasn't much and I expect that I will be out at least once more if not twice before this is done.  Thankfully I have the next three days off, so I can stay home and enjoy an Iowa winter storm.  The Rev went off to the church this morning.  I asked her to keep an eye on the weather so she doesn't get caught there.  She has meetings scheduled tonight so we will see what actually happens.

This is far better than the record snows of last winter.  I'm hoping it stays that way.

I pray your winter weather is mild and your homes warm.  But most of all, as always, I pray for peace.

The Rev was at her best on Christmas

The Rev was particularly good this Christmas eve.  Of course this is a special time for the church but I must say she was on this Christmas.  I finally got a picture, thanks to Jim for getting me this image.

Advent is a very special time of the year.  The Rev is busy but she was at her best this season.  I have to say I am very proud to be the PH at these times.

May the new year bring prosperity and joy to your life and as always I pray that it brings you
