Wordless Wednesday: the deep freeze




Mama of this empty nest, I’m content to live a quiet, country life with my husband of 40+ years and to view the gorgeous sunsets off my own back yard deck. Mama to three adults and Nana to adorable grandchildren, my empty nest fills up again with noise and laughter when they all return 'home'. A former English teacher, reporter/editor, education director for a non-profit organization, and stay at home mom, I retired after a season of substitute teaching at a private academy. Now I enjoy time spent with my grandchildren and family and writing words that seem to pour out of my soul or wandering around the countryside with my camera. Foremost, my faith sustains me as I meander through the empty nest stage of life. My favorite scripture is 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18: “Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”

  1. Love this. We may get some white fluffy stuff Friday or Saturday. Looking forward to it, but they have not said how much. It is so pretty falling, but a lot of the time it comes at night and we miss seeing it. We are in a heat wave right now – 50°-60°, but supposed to be in the 20° range on Saturday! Enjoy the sparkle as the moon reflects on it at night. Beautiful picture.


    1. The weather people say it’s to warm up here too and if it does, most of our snow will probably melt away. But then we’re back in the 20’s and more snow over the weekend. We’ll see. I do enjoy the snow and would much rather see it on the landscape than dark, drab leafless trees and brush.


    1. Being in the deep freeze is typical for us in January so I’m not complaining like everyone else is. But it is wacky weather — supposed to be 50 tomorrow, then back in the 20’s and more snow over the weekend. Just wish Mother Nature would make up her mind!
