The Dreaded “S” Word

See the source imageDare I say it? It’s snowing here again. Oh how I wish it would stop! I’m so done with snow….at least for the rest of this winter. Maybe my attitude will change next season but for now I’m ready for the warmer weather. Not scorching hot, mind you, just warmer. Where I don’t have to wear a jacket.

And I can wear my beloved flip-flops! I practically live in those things the second it starts getting warm enough. Socks and shoes, no way. Flip flops all the way!

I won’t lie….the snow is very pretty coming down. It’s very pretty outside right now. I’m sitting at my desk watching the snow fall. But I just don’t want to get stuck in the house like we did after our winter storm a couple of weeks ago. That about drove me crazy with the claustrophobia! And I am definitely claustrophobic!


So I went to Lifeway today and found another Craig Groeschel book in the clearance section for $6.97! It’s called #Struggles. I’m looking forward to starting it. I’m currently reading Good Faith by David Kinnaman and Gabe Lyons right now so it’ll be a little while before I start it but I’m still excited. I love Craig Groeschel’s  writing!

I also bought Grace is Greater by Kyle Idleman on Audio. I have the book and I’ve already read it, it’s amazing. Now I get to listen to it in my car. 🙂

 

Verse of the day:

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life and have it to the full.

John 10:10, NIV

What’s the weather like where you live?

What books are you currently reading?

No More Snow

See the source imageThe snow and I are no longer on speaking terms. I had to get out today to run an errand for my brother and as I was walking across the parking lot, I slipped on a sheet of ice, fell to my knees and scraped the left knee up pretty nastily. Tore a small hole in my jeans too. Grrrrr.

So no, snow and I are no longer friends.

I know what you’re thinking. “Oh Leigh, this will pass, your knee will heal and you’ll forget about it.” Nope! After having to spend several days indoors due to all this lovely snow and experiencing cabin fever, I have decided that snow and I are done.

I’m not bitter by any means, lol.  I’m laughing as I type this. So most likely you all are right and I WILL forget about this eventually. Just not this winter.

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…..so 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!
