Weird but Wonderful Day

It’s been a weird day.  Snow squalls kept me trapped in the house (That isn’t the weird part.  It’s February in Upstate New York.  That’s pretty much the norm.), unable to spend the day at the church working on the bulletin, a task I enjoy on a weekly basis.  The wind has blown; the temperature has dropped; the sky has been gray and dismal.  I didn’t sleep well last night, so I’m tired.  I’ve had the attention span of a two year old.  I’ve walked from window to window.  I’ve jumped from one magazine article to another.  I have accomplished almost nothing today (I...

Starting Anew

Another holiday season is behind us, another year has closed.  Both Thanksgiving and Christmas were uneventful in our home.  Our usually large gatherings were small, everyone running in their own directions.  My birthday was just another day.  We had cake, coffee and gifts, but no going out to dinner, no special plans.  New Years Eve – I was in bed, reading, by 11:30.  I spent the first Saturday of the year cleaning my house and the first Sunday in bed battling a migraine.  I awoke this morning, the first Monday, to single digit temperatures, wind and blowing snow, the sky...

Winter’s Blanket of Rest

“To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven.” Ecclesiastes 3:1 Mr. Winter has arrived in Upstate New York.  Last year, he made his entrance calmly, a gradual drop in temperature and gentle snowfall.  Not this year.  This year, he has rushed in with wind and blowing snow.  His greeting has created havoc on the roads, closing the highway, warning the people to stay in, safe from his disabling activity.   I’m not a big fan of Mr. Winter.  I’m a new-life-of-spring or warm-activity-of-summer kind of woman.  I like watching the buds break forth on the...
