what a difference a day makes ...

here is my quiet little corner of the world ... at the beginning of the week, the sun was streaming in the living room inviting me to go enjoy the outdoors ... how could i resist? ... i went for a long bike ride and even had energy to wash the windows ....

here is the front deck this morning! during the night, there was a mini ice-storm, high winds and general yuckiness! i did venture out for a walk, but very gingerly! - the sidewalks had their slick spots!
these 2 little plaques my aunt bought me in toronto, made me smile ... especially as i watched the sheets of ice hit my clean windows this morning! ... i'm believing for all kinds of things - all the time ... but at this moment, i'm just hoping for the return of spring like weather!


blessing on ya!!!

I just left another Canadian friend's blog, and she had a picture of snow. Oh, I am sorry. But spring will surely be back soon. Your home and the plaques are lovely.

Oh, enough of that ice already!
I love your little sun filled corner, makes me want to curl up with a cup of tea and a good book!
More sunny days are to come...hold on!

Hi! I'm the 'other' Canadian! Lovely weather, eh? LOL
I love the prayer plaques. Nice 'meeting' you! I look forward to reading your 6 word Memoir.

Me again! Thanks for visiting. In reading some of your posts, I saw that your husband has chronic pain. We have an evangelist who comes to our camp meeting every summer, who is also in chronic pain(from a broken neck many years ago) In fact he has had a constant headache now since November....besides his usual problems! He has written a book on the subject of living with pain. If you're interested, he's listed on my site under ministries..Sam Gipp.
