It Began With A Beautiful Sunset!!!

???????????????????????????????

While sitting in my living room last night watching the old 1960 John Wayne movie, The Alamo, I noticed a beautiful sunset through my front window. Grabbing my camera, I raced outside in time to capture it just before it faded.

“You know what that means!” I announced upon returning to the house!

After spending my day yesterday fighting the wind and complaining about a lack of snow this season, I was hoping for results. It seems as though it always starts here, and then comes down with a double whammy in Iowa, Missouri and Indiana. This year–true to predictions in The Farmer’s Alamanac–it is playing havoc with the East Coast. The football playoffs and The Super Bowl are going to be a challenge.

When I woke up this morning, I sat up in bed and looked out the window. What to my wondering eyes did appear?

???????????????????????????????

Ask and you shall receive, and we are receiving!

I took the snow picture when I first woke up this morning–the reason why it is a little dark. Now at 8:00 A.M., it is daylight, and the snow is still coming down.

???????????????????????????????

My little forsythia twigs are rejoicing. I planted them two years ago, and they are still holding on and growing a little. I noticed how dry they were when I was putting up the Christmas decorations and when I was taking them down. I’m glad the snow has extended back beneath the eaves. The twigs are now saying, “Thank you!”

Yesterday, while on my walk, I noticed a freshly planted tree that must have been planted late fall. A huge tree once stood in this area, and I noticed on one of my walks in October that the tree was half-dead due to lack of moisture. Shortly after that, the City removed the tree. You would never know it was there! And they planted this little tree. I’m sure it is quite happy this morning!

???????????????????????????????

My miniature lilac bush is also rejoicing this morning. I should say my two miniature lilacs. I have one in the front and one in the back. And I’m certain my new bulbs are all rejoicing as well.

8:15 A.M. The world is white outside my front window and the snow is still falling! It is supposed to continue through today, through tonight and through tomorrow. The weather people think we will get two to four inches. I’m hoping for more. We already have over two inches!

Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow! 🙂
