Our snow is melting away today as the temperatures are reaching into the 50s. I saw on TV this morning that Kentucky is having the worst ice storm of their lives. I am so sorry to all of you struggling to find shelter and clean water. I pray that some of our warmth will come your way quickly and that your electric will be restored very fast. Know that we in other states are thinking and praying for you.

Today we actually got snow! It seems like forever since we've seen the wonderful fluffy white stuff. Still not enough to build a snowman or play in it. I, like my children adore the dreamy winter wonderland.
I felt a little better today so i was able to go out and take some pictures of the new and falling snow. It just left me wanting a 100mm lens though. I had to repeat to myself to be happy with what you have, be happy with what you have! I do like my Tiffen close up lenses they do the trick. All in time.
Well here's hoping for more snow! Hope no other St. Louisans heard that ..they don't like snow! LOL They rush out and buy eggs, bread and milk. I have no idea what they are making with this but its what you do if you live here. Maybe some of you true chefs can send me a recipe with these 3 ingredients to make sense of it all!

I guess your wondering! why i have a needle and a flashlight! Well all you need is a flashlight from the HomeDepot to be a doctor!
Well I've been very sick..yes again. I haven't been able to eat and barely able to drink for a week. Its been going on longer but this has been the worst week.
I thought i had an ENT appointment Monday but turns out its on the 2nd of February. I called my general and told me to go to the ER. Then i call my Lung specialist and he was able to see me. That's were it gets fun (kinda).
My wonderful husband went with me or i would have lost it. I go in tell him (the specialist) my throat is killing me, cant' eat, drink, swallow and my ears are hurting. He picks up a HomeDepot like flashlight and looks in my mouth, no tongue depressor, and says i don't see anything. I'm looking right at the "correct" utensils on the wall across from me! Does he check my ears..NO but he does make one more check in my mouth with his HomeDepot flashlight! He is a real specialist! Why not use the right things..they are right there?? Plus the guy went off on my general calling him stupid for sending me to the ER. Real winner wouldn't you agree!
When i got home my general called and told me he was sorry and called in something he thought would help. We'll see. I'm on so many meds I'm a walking pharmacy!

Its my daughters birthday today. What a wonderful experience for a child. You still look forward to it. You don't know that you're getting closer to aching creaking bones you just think about the gifts and how many you'll be getting. And she gets plenty.
As a kid i remember one kind of Lego's. They were red, white, yellow, black and maybe blue. Now they have a set for girls. They come in an assortment of pinks. They have a jump rope, white picket fence, bows, flowers, house..You name it its there. I'm just amazed at how things have progressed, even things like Lego's. So yes, my daughter got those along with Pet Shops, My Little Pony and some paints. (she is a artist at heart)
She is a beautiful gift that we never thought we would have due to my crohn's diseases. We were told NOT to have any more after my son. My son started praying for a sister. We didn't tell him no we just prayed along with him and let God decide. Well you can see that God answered with a Yes! And we have been blessed every day of her life!
Happy Birthday precious!
