Still Snowing

What a beautiful day! I love watching the snow softly falling outside my window. It gives such a cozy feeling! And I have to say that I love blessings! I know I have been complaining about the lack of snow earlier but do you want to know the coolest story in the world? We got our car fixed Saturday night (Woohoo! A running car again!) and we didn't have to walk to church in the bitter cold/snow yesterday. I couldn't believe how blessed we were. I am just reveling in the love that was shown to us. What a wonderful Father I have!

I learned something today. Single pane windows that were put in in the year 1954 really don't keep the heat in or the cold out very well. I have to consent, it is time to put up my prison walls again. The horrible plastic that only adds 5 degrees to our house (5 degrees do mean a lot when it is super cold) will be put up on all the windows but 2 or three of them. I can't have it up on all of them if I want to keep my sanity. The lack of looking out the windows would probably kill me. Well, I guess I did survive last year, but only just barely.

However, I am super excited for the cookies I am about to make, and then I will have the freshly falling snow, a toasty warm kitchen, and a smell of either gingerbread or oatmeal cookies wafting through out the house! What bliss it is!

We have single-paned windows too - they are a pain when it's cold!

Reading your post just felt like Christmas! It is crazy cold outside, isn't it?

It is getting cold here too! We are supposed to have frozen rain tonight! And then the roads are going to be icy and they're going to close the city down! Well I guess it will help prepare us for our trip to UTah!
