Snowmageddon 2018

IMG_1110.jpgLook how pretty! This first picture was taken through the window looking at my mom’s grapevine! The snow is still coming down!

It’s not supposed to taper off until around 11, I believe. I’m waiting on my nephew to get over here so I can get some pictures of him playing in it. 🙂

Can you tell I love the snow? LOL. Here in Virginia, we don’t get tons of snow very often… anytime we get a decent amount I get so very excited!

We haven’t measured to see exactly how much we’ve gotten so far because the winds are so bad that it’s causing drifts.

IMG_1108.jpgThere’s just something magical about the snow and the way it causes everything to look so peaceful. It’s so quiet right now.

So how is your day going? 

Is it snowing where you live?

How do you feel about the snow?





Verse of the day:

Peace I leave with you, my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give you to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.

John 14:27 (ESV)








Winter Storm Grayson

Seriously, when did we start naming the winter storms?? Well, it hasn’t started snowing yet but it’s coming!

No automatic alt text available.And I’m so excited! I live in the purple shaded area of the map! We’re about to get some serious snow! You may laugh at me if you’re from somewhere that sees way more snow than this but I don’t care. This is a lot of snow! I can’t wait for it to come down!

There’s something about snow that just puts me in the greatest mood! Everything seems so peaceful afterwards. Things are so quiet. It’s gorgeous! I absolutely love snow!

I will definitely post pictures tomorrow! It’s not supposed to get really heavy until after 9 or 10pm so when I wake up in the morning it’s going to be so pretty!

Happy 2018!

I can’t believe it’s already 2018! 2017 just flew by!

Next week I will be heading down to the OBX with my mom to join my sister and her family for a few days of relaxation. We go every year and I always come back feeling refreshed and ready to start the new year! We don’t  necessarily do lots of things during the week. It’s just a time to get away and focus on what really matters: family. Sometimes we play board games. We’ll watch movies. We do go out and do things but it’s a leisure pace. We get ready when we feel like it. One year we went to the Wright Brothers Memorial. That was pretty neat. It was FREEZING COLD but what were we expecting right? It’s January! LOL.

See the source imageSo what is my main goal for 2018? Well, my biggest goal is to lose weight. It’s going to be a challenge because 2 of my medications I take for my fibromyalgia and bipolar disorder cause weight gain. But I just have to have determination to lose the weight. I know I can do it. And I know God will see me through it.

Other goals I have are to spend more time in God’s Word. To read more books. To have a better attitude towards certain people in my life.

How about you? What are your goals for 2018?


Verse of the day:

Be very careful then, how you live–not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity because the days are evil.

Ephesians 5:15-16
