"Fun in the Snow" By, Nancy Alexander
Snowing in the South and Having Lots of Fun…
My last posts have been long and sort of serious. But, they have been important!
I have felt a real burden to write about my life with Fibromyalgia, and what I am now doing to be cured.
But, today is going to be on a lighter note. Yes, it is snow! Snow in the South!
And Steve and I are having a BLAST!! WooHoo~~
My handsome hubby, Steve playing in the snow — and making sure we have plenty of bird seed out for the birds! They really let us know when the feeders start getting low by flying up on the back porch making loud noises!
Steve and I have been working in our office a lot yesterday and today. We have large windows, looking out over such a pretty site. As I am working, I have my camera sitting right here beside me; I can take a lot of the pictures without even standing up! Just look at the pictures of these beautiful birds we look at while we work. It is easy to work (even when you're working on a business plan for 2011) when we have such a beautiful view!
Steve and I have been at home watching and enjoying the snow for several days now. It is beautiful as this white blanket has engulfed our yard, the street and everything in our garden. We just ventured out for the first time, and although the roads are still a little slick, we loved it. We also slid some — but guess what??? I didn't even say a word. Used to be…when my muscles were so bad, and we would slide in the snow, my nightmare would be that we would get stuck somewhere, and have to get out and walk! Well, I couldn't walk too well at that time, so I was terrified. But, not so today! It is beautiful, peaceful and fun.
Above is a picture of our pergola. We really enjoy this in the summer and always look for deer tracks in the snow all around it! Those are such peaceful animals, I dearly love to see them walk through our yard. Even though we live in the city, I can be sitting at my desk working during the middle of the day, and see deer walk down the center of our driveway right in front of me. I, personally, think they are a sign from God, of his peace, grace and love! Those are the feelings I feel when I look at these magnificent creatures!
