Peach State says: It’s Time For Some Normal!

20140222-072101.jpgWhat a delight the past two weeks have been. We have had snow, ice and Tornado Watches and Thunderstorms…oh and let’s not forget the Earthquake! Yep! You heard me right! And yes…we felt it shake, rattle and roll!

School has been out for Winter Break this week even though the kids were out of school four of the five days the week before due to inclement weather. I am so ready for a bit of normal!

It’s Time For Some Normal!

This has been a two week period filled with many firsts…
*More than a dusting of snow,
*Hubby home on days other than normal days off…weather related,
*Only one child in the home,
*Only one child still living…(insert chuckle) “Of course he is…”
*The youngest is beginning to follow in footsteps of older brothers by sitting in “Dad’s” office at night and talking about the day before heading off to bed!…(this is huge!)
and drum roll…..
*Letters from my son in BASIC Training!

The good news is that besides finding some normal in NEW routine I now have an address I can send letters back to my Army son! (Doing the dance of Joy!) Routines have been frozen with icy conditions for two Practices at church this month. (Okay…one of the practices was the 29th of January but that is close enough!) Ask anyone…when a set in stone routine is cancelled it can throw everything into a tail-spin!

Speaking of “Normal”…I apologize for not touching base with you this past week! I have found myself quite busy away from home and during the down time I was busy doing some neglected household chores…except for yesterday. I was dealing with a migraine and…looking a pictures online of my son’s company during BASIC trying to find one with him. “We think we found one..”

I will be getting Facebook Funnies posted later so have no fear. (Note to those who contribute…It’s Not Too Late…Post away!)

Time to give “Precious Princess” her medicine…I wrap the pills in sliced deli meats and hope my fingers remain intact!
(Note to self…buy more sliced Turkey!)

“May your cup runneth over with joy, love and laughter oh, and really fabulous coffee!”

Peach State says: One Of My Favorite Things!

One Of My Favorite Things…is sitting at the table just off my kitchen with the window blinds wide open watching the falling snow! It has been falling for just a short time. The fluffy flakes are quietly filling in the rain soaked area on the ground as a slushy mix is replaced by a pillowy white covering.

The best is yet to come! The weather personalities in our area have forecasted an ice storm tonight and tomorrow. “Can you say goody?” ( please repeat the previous question using a sarcastic tone!!!)
I have had many experiences with “ice storms” and by the time I was married knew how to survive one. The longest and most memorable was in Washington State…I saw the pattern and prepared! Others were not as lucky! By the time is was dark I had my hubby home from work, 4 hours early, and food on the stove with the fire going. Hubby was thrilled to walk in to a cozy fire especially when he realized the power was out. “It stayed out for almost 45 hours!” Ahh…memories!!!

Once this event is over I will share more pics with you! “I know my friends will post some great pictures on Facebook.” (Hint…Hint…) For now I will sit back and sip on my “Oh So Wonderful Cup of Coffee Espresso” and enjoy this quiet and serene snowfall.

That didn’t last long…the youngest is up! LOL!

What I Have Learned!

…to stay off the roads and stay home! Here’s hoping my hubby can make it home and get some extra sleep tomorrow. Can I get an AMEN?
