OK Winter Can Get the 'H' Outta Here!

It's waaaaay too cold here.  I'm tired of taking 20 minutes to get ready to go outside.  I want to be on the beach like my grandaughter.  Call the waaahhbulance! 
Okay, got that outta the way, now on to what's going on right now.  Not much!  I'm happy to see my friends, Sher, Bradley and Shannon bsck from their holidays.  They were away visiting relatives in British Columbia. They got back on Saturday and today we got caught up with all the news.  We'll be getting back to our routines with the kids and other homey things.  I love homey things.  Fresh baked bread, fresh made coffee, clothes fresh from the clothesline (a rarity these days), clean floors, home cooked comfort many things we took for granted, that our Moms and Dads used to provide for us.  Now some of us do that for our children.  I had one ambition when I was a child; to be a Mommy like mine, with lots of children, so I could bake cookies, cakes and pies, cook the food they liked, dress them in nice clean clothing and kiss them goodnight after a good day.  I got to do that, and in a way I'm still doing that, so all in all I reached my goal and I'm a happy girl.
Proverbs 31:28  Her children rise up and call her blessed.

Ooooo...Does that beach scene look inviting!
Thankfully, winter doesn't last too long...and we'll be hoping for 'cooler' weather again....and on it goes.

Well spring will be here before we know it, right? Won't it? Please?
Oh well, gives us a good excuse to get things done inside!
Love Di

I hate the cold too, but what's the old saying? "This too shall pass...", but it won't be soon enough to suit me!

Sweet story and my sister-in-law and I were just saying that, we never felt 'un-fullfilled' and women complaining about that always seemed so strange to us. We were never looking for careers outside the home to feel fulfilled, we never were looking for wealth, or fame, or elaborate lifestyles. All our lives all we wanted to was to marry a nice guy and raise a family.
Of course in big families there is always bumps in the road, but all in all, DREAMS COME TRUE!!
Are we 'underachievers'? Maybe. But we don't feel that way. We feel very Blessed!

Nice post!
All the best,
