Early February



We've hardly had any winter weather this year. With temperatures in the 50s or higher every day, the daffodils have been blooming for a couple of weeks.

Now, we're getting a reminder that it's still February. Tonight, the temperature will fall to around 13°F, and the high on Saturday will be about 27°F -- a whole day below the freezing point. Then, on Monday night, we may get some ice and/or snow. I would prefer snow.

I would like a snow day off from school in this goofed up winter.

If it gets bad, I hope it gets bad enough that I can stay home from work. (I say that knowing full well that I will get in my car and go to work, even if the roads are a sheet of ice.)

I am holding my breath because it's been so nice this winter....and I have not forgotten that horrible ice storm we lived thru that happened in February a few years back. That was the coldest I have ever been, and that was the longest I have ever been without lights. If that happens again, I am going to be tempted to start walking south and not stop until I hit Florida! :)

Well, we dodged the last one successfully, and hopefully, there won't be another one this winter!

CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
