our windows looked like this--from ice build up-

Yesterday we had an ice storm---that's the bad news---
The best news is that we did NOT lose power-
I remember, as a kid, living in London,
Ontario, and there was an ice storm and we were without power for 3 days-
My Mom and Dad's house was the only one on the street with a fireplace, so some neighbours bunked in with us, in front of that fireplace-
My Mom always filled a bathtub with water in a power outage--
I still do this-- and all my kids laugh over it!
"Oh-oh", I hear them say, "Mom's filling the tub with water---must be a power outage."

Funny what you remember , and how it affects one's life , even when one is old!
I do have a problem however which I need to work on---
Yesterday was a stressful day--
Stressful changes in my life, cause me to stuff myself with anything I see-- I go into the "See Food" diet mode-
It takes days and days to bring the weight back to where it should be--
From to-day on, I must realize that the world is not going to end because of an ice storm-
But-- my world just might end, because of my stressful overeating-

So we STILL are having snow falling here--
To-day is the Boston Marathon---
Hopefully they have better weather than here-

To-day I shall Spark a great day---put some boogie in my step--
We are so fortunate to have a new day, everyday---
