A Calm Snowy Day and Silver Linings

 




      I took the picture above this morning.  It is of my side garden with the high sided raised beds my hubby built be.  Those bumps you see in the lower bed are my kale plants blanketed with snow.  I love looking out at this scene.


   From what I read online, the roads were horrible this morning with some even being shut down.  Many places opened late and are closing early today since round two of the snow is hitting us now this afternoon.  I am so glad I had Jeff take my car today.  They are calling for even more snow coming in next week on top of all of this with no melt off, so thing might get interesting.  I'm thinking Jeff may end up having to take the truck to work at some point.  Things could be worse, my brother and his family had their flight back home to Seattle cancelled on Monday and they ended up having some extra time in Montana.  He just posted, that after another delay in flights, they are finally going to get to go home today.  Now he just has to deal with trying to get home from the airport to his house.  Seattle is not prepared for these kinds of snowstorms that have been hitting.


   The cats and I are cuddled up all snuggly warm on the couch.  I have beautiful music playing in the background and I am watching the snowflakes gently twirl as they make their way to the ground.  The chores I had lined up for today are done and since our cell phone service is spotty in bad weather, there are no phone calls coming in, nor going out.  There are many other things that I could be doing but I am choosing to just enjoy the calm and peace that I feel in my home and in my heart right now.  I am also choosing to continue to make my goal for this coming year to find the silver linings in all situations that at first may seem bad or limiting.  I have had to practice that a lot lately, and it has really helped my attitude and level of gratefulness.  In all things, give thanks. 😊

  1. Pretty - but glad it's you and not me!!!! It amazes that UPW gets so little snow and that this is different. I always thought it was a cold and snowy place.
    There is always a silver lining - all things happen in God's time and plan. Nothing is a surprise to Him - so we need to just trust!
    Happy New Year and stay safe.

  2. I live in Western PA and we would have had snow by now but 50° weather and rain. I hate snow and worry about my kids driving in it. My husband is retired and we get to stay home which is nice.

    1. I'm glad you are able to stay home now and so is your husband. You sure are having strange weather for this time of year in your area.

  3. That snow does look very pretty! I wouldn't want to drive in it, though! It's raining here, and driving in the rain is bad enough (our roads, especially the intersections, tend to flood!)
    I'm glad you are looking for the silver lining; yes, it is there, even if you can't always see it!
    Happy New Year to you and yours, Debbie. Wish you all the best in 2022!

  4. You and I are both in the same boat my friend, but isn't it nice to have a cozy home and a kitty to curl up with? Happy New Year to you and Jeff!
