This is pretty much what it has looked like out my back door for the last 30 days. A soft coat of white blankets the trees and shrubs. It really is beautiful but it has been rather chilly most days. I don't mind the cold too much. I am always cold even in the summer so winter isn't really that big of a change for me.
With the start of February my thoughts are of the last month of winter. Now don't get me wrong, March is winter in Ohio but the snow melts quickly in March and we start to see a little bit of spring so we just have to make it through February.
Have you noticed all the wonderful ideas that all the blog ladies have been sharing...oh so many for those who decorate for Valentines day. I use to celebrate it with my kids...I would decorate the dining room table and we would do little crafts...well those days are over for us now. I have one child who will graduate from college this May and another who will graduate from high school in June so I am about to turn my thoughts toward that but for now I am enjoying the day at home with my youngest....just being together is great joy.
I have not decided on a backing for this piece just yet but I have started to look around to see if I can find a place to hang it... I seem to be enjoying the tranquil feel of this winter flower...I hope you love it too.
We are heading to Columbus this week to see a specialist ..it seems our middle dd can not bend her finger. Yes it seems to be fractured, yes there is a bone chip and there is also a cyst. Now why couldn't it just have been jammed?? Well, we will see where this journey takes us but for today I am resting in the Lord. I am casting my cares upon Him. Be blessed dear friends.
