Last Minute Winter

I grew up in the southeastern portion of the United States, but I’m still often taken by surprise at how much our weather can fluctuate. Earlier last week, we had temperatures near eighty degrees; yesterday, we had high’s in the low thirties and about 2-3 inches of snow. This morning it was nineteen degrees. And what about this next week? Well, we’re back up into the seventies by Thursday.

Yesterday’s snow was actually the first we have had this winter. It’s as if winter has been slumbering, then was suddenly awakened and realized it hadn’t been doing it’s job, so it decided to throw down some last minute snow. While a minor inconvenience (like having to drag the coat out after wearing short-sleeves and shorts earlier this week), it was quite nice to have something a little different. Not to mention, it was beautiful!

Bluebird house
Peach tree blossoms
Tulip poplar blossoms
Love the brilliance of the sun shining through the trees, casting shadows and light on the snow.

I enjoyed it while we had it but I have to admit, I’m looking forward to the return of warm weather. I have great admiration for those of you who have snow as your constant winter companion and enjoy it, but I certainly don’t envy you!

Have a blessed week!

Hmm...about me. Well, if you were to meet me in person, you would likely say I am quiet, reserved, maybe a tad shy, introspective, aloof, maybe even snobbish. Those who take the time to know me, find that I am someone who loves to talk one-on-on with others, enjoys hearing about people's life journeys, encourages others and easily gets lost in dreams. I am a writer and author with lots of ideas, but little time. I am mom to two awesome teenagers who are my inspiration each and every day, and a crazy rag doll cat named Hobbs. Most importantly, I am a child of God and will be eternally grateful for His working in my life. Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Crazy indeed!
    I love the pretty blossoms with snow, but hate that they will be lost! That’s how it goes in these parts!

    We missed the snow but came back to the cold.

    I enjoy looking at your photos!
