“S” stands for……

 SNOW !!!!

First of all, I wanted to thank all of my blogging peeps for your warm wishes for my return from my terrible funk. I’m telling you, rain and gray skies for weeks on end is the one thing that can obviously send me spiraling downward. I truly feel it is due to the lack of sunshine. Long cold days is one of the reasons I moved  from Michigan to California. I always said, Sunny Southern California is where I was meant to be. Endless sunshine!

This year’s Texas winter has been very unusual because there should be a break between the rain storms with a day or two of sunshine ….. but there was not. Now, instead of the “S” word I was waiting for …. “SUN” …..we got SNOW. But it did the trick! Each snow flake yesterday was like a little ray of sunshine falling from heaven !!
when i woke in the morning … it had been snowing for about 3 hours
(keep this tree in mind throughout this post)
Now, I know all you northerners and easterners are thinking, big deal - snow! Well, it is a big deal for us because ~ it doesn’t snow like this in Texas!
so, off to work I go……
this is no, pretend snow storm ….
I had to mail bills, and you can tell my spirits are back up ….. since I photographed the snowflake that fell on my pants when I opened the window!

Still driving to work ….and I am sure you will get a bit bored with my snow photos, but, this is also my journal so I am going to load them all. Plus we made a new snowfall record in north Texas ……

This is where I work at the nursing home. The grounds are pretty! The snow is still falling. Hours: 12. Not really sticking ~ but the flakes are huge.

It is suppose to keep on snowing for another 6-9 hours !!!! Can’t wait for morning!
The tree is getting heavier with snow……
It’s midnight and our tree is looking a bit scary….. it is so heavy now….and still snowing! Hours: 22
and then……..
….. good morning Tree!
good morning snow!

Baby, it’s cold outside!
As my son brilliantly pointed out to me, this is his mom's version of a snowman!
I think he knows me better than anyone!
Until next time! Have a beautiful week!
