Winter has felt relentless so far this season. But through it all when you pause and look around you can see that it can actually be very beautiful. Seeing the beauty can bring joy to such a gloomy season.
The picture below is from right outside my door. Not so bad seeing that each day.
There are less animals out & about also (at least that we see). But every now & then you are fortunate to see one of God’s amazing creatures out frolicking. My friend took the picture below of the deer and I edited it. Continue reading →
The weather is changing where I live. Winter is here! I am really nervous about driving in it. I am used to driving only blocks to get to work and most other places. Now that we have moved I have a commute. Because of the weather and traffic I decided to get snow tires for the first time ever. I am hoping that will make a difference. The season has barely begun and there has already been treacherous driving conditions and many accidents. It made for an idea for a post today so I have a little rhyme for you. I hope you enjoy!
A WORD OF CAUTION
The alarm clock rings
The birds outside sing
You jump out of bed
Need to get everyone fed
No time to make a meal
Jump in car hands on wheel
McDonalds is on the way
Gotta get on with the day
Let me give you a word of caution
Things happen when you’re not careful & watching
And the crew is not ready for the disorder
From this kind of drive through food order

With this week’s insanely cold temperatures I worried every day & night about any animals out there. I can’t stand the thought of a dog hooked to a chain, a bunny stuck in a cage, or cat being left outside to endure the temperatures when there is a warm house feet away. When people choose to leave their pets outside during these dangerous temperatures, let’s face it, the animal’s life is at stake.
We’ve had two days of light snow and very cold weather. Between the snow and cold temperatures it has been very slippery on the roads and sidewalks. Even though I am not a huge fan of summer, it’s way too soon for this. It’s only the first week of November!
Anyway, since it can’t be stopped, during this change of season let’s not forget our pets.
How about your area? Any snowfall or cold temperatures?
