We’re Having a Heat Wave!


Just kidding. For some reason I have the song line, “We’re having a heat wave, a tropical heat wave, the temperature’s rising, it isn’t surprising, she certainly can can-can!” stuck in my head.


Actually, we are in the middle of a winter storm warning and freezing rain.


My oldest son and I have been braving the weather at different times to satisfy our love for outdoor photography.


I even re-visited my favorite red barn.


This was the best shot I could get of a herd of elk camping out just off the highway here.


♥ I hope all of my readers are staying warm! How is the weather where you live? ♥

New Year’s Snow


Welcome 2017! Our white Christmas was the beginning of a winter wonderland here in northern Utah. I think the snow is gorgeous!


Yesterday my husband drove me around our neighborhood so I could take these snowy pictures. They make me think of postcards.


I love the little lanes some of our neighbors have. I had to stand just right to get the little peek of the red cabin at the end.


I have some fun news to share: my oldest son has moved back home. Today, he and I drove his little sister back to her university (less than four hours away) for winter semester. We took her to pick up her textbooks and then to Walmart for groceries to stock her up again.


After winter semester, she will return home for spring and summer. And for those seasons this year, I will have all four of my kiddos home. I am one happy mama!


Tomorrow Marcus and I start our homeschooling back up and I am really looking forward to that. We can make full use of our basement now because the young newlywed couple moved out today. They were only here on a four month internship and now have returned to the same university as my daughter. We will miss them!


Yesterday my son was using our snowblower and ran over the extension cord for our Christmas inflatables, completely severing it. It’s been too cold to take down the outside decorations.


♥ Do you have snow where you live? I hope all my readers are experiencing a great start to their new year, and if anyone is sick, I hope you feel better soon. ♥
