We have been hearing for days how we might get snow, but more probably rain, but maybe snow...maybe a little bit of it. Right now it has finally started snowing and it is very pretty and is starting to accumulate on the glass table on the patio. Those of us who were born in Texas, and especially in Fort Worth are crazy as bats when it comes to snow. We have to make a trip to the grocery store to lay in enough food to last until the middle of summer and all the while knowing in reality the snow will be gone in a day or two at the most. Children dream of a snow day and their parents have nightmares about snow days. It is a busy time for everyone. My husband and I made the required trip to the store yesterday, so we are stocked up. He has started making chocolate chip cookies.
To make everything perfect we are supposed to get some freezing rain/drizzle/fog on top of the snow/sleet. I can't remember I've listened to so many forecasts this weekend. I do know this; I will not be driving tomorrow. Last Thursday was lunch with the girls day and I thought it would be very brave of me to drive to the restaurant. I haven't driven the new car yet and we've had it since September 9th. If you have been with me for a while that was the time my arm was broken. I've become overly cautious in this period of random near death experiences. So, back to the luncheon, as I was driving home in my little trustworth Avalon when I had a blowout on the back rear tire. Scared the holy crap out of me! I was able to avoid hitting anyone else or winding up in someone's living room. I got the car off the main road and parked in front of a house and called my husband who has become more AAA inclined. It took hours to get my sweet little car home with its foot fixed. I was so rattled that I nearly nodded off to sleep while at physical therapy later that afternoon for my back/ribs/spine. When I get upset a nap is a requirement, but I made it through. Physical therapy has made a world of difference in the pain level the muscle spasms caused.
It is snowing a lot now and I think it is time to go watch the miracle of snow. I'm wishing you a peaceful wonderful Sunday afternoon filled with happiness and small or large miracles. To leave you with a happy thought, my grandson asked for a robe for Christmas. He has never shown any interest in wearing one, but his best bud has a cool green one. I couldn't find a green one, but did find a plush blue furry one that he now sleeps in at night. He loves it as much as the PS3 Santa brought. My dil dropped a hint about a Lego police station he LOVES it, too. Gramma scored this year and must stay on good terms with the dil at all costs. This past year has been a good one in that we have become closer.
Happy Sunday...it is a snow "hurricane" outside now.
