Hey, y’all! Welcome back to the blog! I am sorry that it has been a bit since I last posted. Y’all know how crazy life can be + all the snow and snowy mud has kept me busy mopping and bathing furbabies *smile* Thankfully, the snow is all gone, and we have had a few warmer, sunnier days. I don’t know about y’all, but I am soooo ready to get out in my yard and do some cleaning and gardening. *daydreaming moment*

20150224_102932_resizedBefore I share some of the snow days pictures, let me explain why it has been such a big deal and shock to my system. I am from the Deep South–the very heart of Mississippi. I have never seen so much snow at one time–much less for so long. This year, I saw my first snow plow and experienced negative temperatures. It was crazy cold, and everywhere I looked–I saw white. After experiencing all the snow, I have decided that it is just not me…it is pretty for a day or two…and those negative and single digit temps–definitely not for me!

I must admit that I whined a lot to the hubby about the snow and cold. I am not proud, but I just didn’t know how to act being trapped inside wearing all my sweatshirts and monitoring the temperature in the basement–hoping the temperature sensor wouldn’t sound. Any who…enough of my silly complaining. It is time to sit a spell with a good cup of coffee and look at snow days photos *smile*

Mattie had a really big time playing in the snow.

I had to capture this photo because I believe this is the first big icicle I have ever seen. We are not going to talk about how old I am--let's just say I am over 40, but less than 50 *wink*

Thanks so much for sitting a spell with today as we took a look back at the snow days in Johnson City, Tennessee.

It's about 1:30 am here in Johnson City, and it is bright outside--not from the moon or street lamps...but from the reflectivity of the snow--which is on the ground and falling from the sky. The streets are covered in snow...with only a hint of tire tracks from a couple of cars that went by an hour ago. Looking out my window, everything looks so peaceful, beautiful, and clean. There's a crisp, fresh smell in the air and no noise. It is like God is speaking through it all saying "Be still and know...."

    Another very interesting post, Chasidy. thank you for it. Love the pictures of the snow (better than actually being in it — Smile) and of your daughter and Mattie, and of your house and street. I love your verandah, too. I’m a verandah girl, as you know.
    Lovely post.

      Thank you for the sweetness 🙂 This is my first year to have so much snow! I enjoyed cuddling up on the porch and watching it snow–but I was really glad to see it go away because I just don’t have the clothes or the patience to deal with it 🙂 Mattie, on the other hand, was sad to see it go–she had so much fun playing in it!

      It is lovely sitting a spell on the porch or the verandah–it just calms and soothes the soul 🙂

      Once again, thanks so much for the kind words and for sitting spell with me 🙂
