Snowy Morning Visitors
Storm three of the week was still going strong this morning. I spent a couple of hours on the sofa with my coffee contemplating the real world. Today was Hannah’s third snow day of the week. I had to decide if it was going to by my third snow day as well. All I wanted to do was hibernate, yet guilt set in, so I headed into the office.
It was a very slow and slippery four miles to town, but worth it in the end. By the time I arrived home tonight, Paul and Hannah had the whole place plowed and shoveled out. Happy day!
Here are a few of the visitors I enjoyed watching over my coffee this morning.

The movie Beauty and the Beast has a special place in my heart and in our family. Hannah has never been an over the top girly-girl. As a kid, she … Continue reading
