A wintry mix

The first wintry mix of 2011 down in the south finds schools closed, businesses sending employees home, grocery stores packed with shoppers -- because you know it just might get a little bit of ice on the overpasses and bridges and we're not use to that. So everything is blown way out of proportion.  So in the winter we actually live for "wintry mix" so we can stop and slow down for a minute.

So here I am at home.     

Icicles are beginning to form on the roof edge on a gray dreary winters day.

There getting bigger by the hour.

Soup is on.
 I made homemade vegetable soup with beef, onion, celery, basil, thyme, salt, pepper, peas, corn, carrots, beans, okra, tomatoes and tomato sauce.  It's delicious.

Fire is blazing.

Flannel jammies and sock feet.
Now, all tucked in inside out of the cold. Life stops for part of  a day, just because of mother nature.
Tomorrow we find that it didn't get as bad as the weatherman said it would, so life is back in full swing.



  1. oh man, that soup and that fire both look so does the cake...and even the jammies and fun socks!


Tell me something!
