After five days of ice in December, I thought winter was over here in FW.
I was mistaken---No ice this go around--only about 1/2 inch of snow--but bitter cold - freezing temperatures. I cannot find what happened to my coats in all of this moving. I finally located one long dress coat and a couple of jackets--but I seem to be without a warm jacket and the wind will cut right through you. Thank goodness for layers!
I stuck close to home the day of the snow. I am very careful---my little car would be like an ice skate on icy roads and if I slip and break a bone---I am up the creek!
I ventured out on Friday-but the snow was still covering most things--especially my car. Fortunately since it was so cold when all this came down--no ice--it was like a fine powder.
Here at "The Cottage" all was warm---though I really--really miss my working fireplace I had for my entire life. Standing over the vents which are all in the floor in an old house--is just not the same! Can still hear that fire popping and sizzling in my head.
While Meredith was here, I had small group friends over to hear her story. It was wonderful to share a meal and have good company in my home once again.
Over the back door which I always leave from hangs these. A constant reminder of the grace I live under and the need to share as I leave the safety of these walls.
Meanwhile--there is a daily blizzard of emails from the hood---missing dog--found dog--furniture for sale--house or apartment for rent--returning heroes--bombard City Hall with a sidewalk request--- For a big city neighborhood--they are organized and united in community. I am going to love sitting on my front porch--when the weather warms!
