If we were having coffee today…this would be the “view from the porch”…
Yup, pretty much the same as the rest of the Northeastern United States! We’re actually better off here than in the shore towns, because they’re dealing with a blizzard and major flooding. I’ve also been sending out prayers for those who don’t have the luxury of staying home – the medical personnel, the plow operators and people like my neighbor, Walt, who owns a heating and air conditioning business. I saw him digging out his car early this morning, probably off to rescue someone who lost their heat. I think this might finally be the year his wife talks him into retiring!
So today I am feeling very fortunate to be tucked away warm and safe.
Come in. Let’s curl up with a steamy cup of coffee, tea or hot chocolate, what ever you like! I have a feeling you’ll be staying a while. Naturally, the Hubby has prepared us for the storm by baking brownies and chocolate chip cookies. That’s his idea of a survival kit…God bless his little heart!😊
If we were having coffee…I would ask about your week. I hope you, too, have been safe from the elements wherever you are. Has it been a fun week? A productive week? A difficult one?
Our week has been pretty routine. Miss Dee started her new job and seems to be enjoying it. Mr D started classes again and spent the week complaining. He ended up with mostly evening classes this semester, which wouldn’t be a bad thing since he functions much better in the PM hours, except that he also has one morning class. That means he still has to get up early every day and then has the whole middle of the day with nothing to do unless he is scheduled to work. This, boys and girls, is what happens when you don’t take the time to meet with your college advisor and end up having to schedule classes on your own, last minute. Oh well. Live and learn!
If we were having coffee…I would tell you that my brother found out this week that he is going to be a great-grandfather in October. I don’t know how how he feels about it yet, but it sure, makes ME feel old! He is eight years older than me and he and his daughter each became parents quite young but the idea that my nieces son (who is the same age as my son) is going to be a father soon kind of makes my head spin. Obviously, even though they are only two months apart in age, he and Mr D are in very different places in their lives. When told about his (second?) cousin’s impending fatherhood I saw a shiver of horror actually move down his spine! I’m okay with that. Grandchildren can be a dream for the future.
If we were having coffee…you would notice that Hubby is piling on the layers and heading out to “move some snow around.” He isn’t much good at the whole hybernation thing. Not me. I’ve stocked up on books and art supplies. As long as the power stays on and there is coffee left to brew I’ll be just fine.
Feel free to curl up hang out, but if you do feel the need to venture into the world, I wish you safe travel. Thanks for stopping by
