Remember you are you and always celebrate you!



We had a lovely sunny winter day yesterday with temps in the 40’s today we’ll be in the 50’s but it is to rain most of the day.  I got out and took some pictures so you could see how much melting is going on.  The rain today should make a significant difference.  I hope there is a break in the rain so I can get some more pictures to show you.  They may be taken from the porch so that I don’t get the camera wet.



So many times we forget to remember to count our blessings and not our troubles.  Here is what is on my thankful list today:


1424. for a good cherry pie
1425. for our furry friends
1426.  for snow that is melting

I like the 'remembers'. Especially the Grudge statement, so true.

So with you on melting snow. It's lovely today and I am so enjoying being outside and not wearing gloves.

It's in the 70's here, but suppose to be thunderstorms tonight. I have enjoyed the pass two days doing things outside. Maybe it won't be too much longer until you will be seeing some warmer days. Take care. Jean

I liked that remember poem, good advice about what to remember; will definitely print it out. Neat that things are melting, but lots look like it still needs to, but I'm sure in time it will :)
