my thoughts for today
all images – new and old – were taken with my cell phone
Winter, in my opinion, is approaching way too fast! I’ve already had to light a fire twice this week! Not cool!! Or maybe it is…LOL.
There was a time, when I was younger, that we would get our first frost of the season around the same time as the county fair – in early September. But that was many moons, years, ago. Of course, this week we’ve also had frost advisories…and my house plants are still outside!! I’m slowly bringing them inside! In case I haven’t told you, I have well over 50 house plants. Yeah…sigh! I blame it on my mom 🙂 I have a really hard time killing house plants, although I have killed a few – I used to have somewhere around 80. It’s usually the ones that are the hardest to kill that I do end up killing…aloe and African Violets. Don’t ask me!!
all of the following info comes from http://www.farmersalmanac.com/extended-forecast
what makes a blizzard? (noun) a severe snowstorm with high winds and low visibility (online dictionary)
So I guess I need to get busy winterizing my house, bringing plants in and gathering up firewood… with the way this year is going, I wouldn’t be surprised if old man winter came knocking at my door tomorrow! Although the trees haven’t lost their leaves yet, so there is that! (Just a few years ago we had snow on Halloween, kids were out Trick-or-Treating with winter coats over their costumes!)
…the rest of the post is a repost from last year…

Just wanted to share this!
It snowed last night!! Not as much as they said we would get, but enough to make things pretty!
It’s supposed to get windy later so taking photos is gonna be hard!
And it is cold! 33F (.55C) degrees but with the wind-chill… It’s cold!
I’ll be heading back out in a little bit with my Canon and I’ll be posting my normal am posts here in a few (I only woke up about 20 minutes ago).
See you then!
hope you have a great day!
thanks for stopping by!!
A Wintry Night
The sky is dark and the ground is white
The world is peaceful an this wintry night
No one around, not a sound to be heard
Not a laugh, not a car, not even a bird
For a moment, it’s just the snow and me
I smile inside
I feel so free
