The yard was a blanket of white this morning. I was thankful for a fire in the wood stove as it took away the chill that surely would have enveloped me otherwise. I told the Barefoot Lumberjack that I would put some more fuel on the fire before I left for work, if I remembered, but I forgot. Good thing Sofie, Little Cat, and the Naughties have fur coats!
It was a genuine wintry morning, complete with the need to brush accumulated snow from my vehicle, drive through a blizzard on Rte 104 in Ontario, and back into the sunshine again in Webster. I wore my winter coat and pretty red mittens. It would have been a great day for Snowmen in Cars had I not needed to stop at the credit union on my way to work.
I've been fighting a headache today. The desire to put my head down, close my eyes, and resign myself to sleep was all but impossible this afternoon. Ibuprofen was my friend today as it feels like somebody smacked my head down a little too hard on my shoulders. Makes me wish I'd actually gone to visit the chiropractor last week, but by the time Thursday morning arrived, last week's ache in the back of my neck had started to subside. Besides, I was busy. Hopefully work associated aches and pains do not become a regular occurrence.
I'm blogging at work while my friend dozes in a living room recliner. Another resident is repeating my unspoken thoughts, "I wanna go home. I wanna go home..." I guess there are moments when we all long for the comfort of our very own dwellings. It won't be long before I'm on my way. After my arrival I'll upload some photos and press "publish".
I am a work in the hands of the Master Potter. I pray that His fingerprints are all over me as I walk through this life. This is my journey. Thank you, Jesus, for not giving up on me.
I am mom to seven beautiful grown ups and grandma to ten beautiful grandchildren.
