Good Morning on this Gorgeous snowy morning!! emoticon I love the number Martha and I am glad you had a helpful shoveler!! emoticon We had a fella plow yesterday and he seemed unusually happy to be out doing it! emoticon I ran over to check the snow load on our hay shed, I knocked it off and marveled at the amount we got. emoticon So much for those pre-winter predictions, I love it when they make these kinds of mistakes emoticon The only thing I would change right now is my dirty window that makes the sun obnoxious! emoticon I hung all the extra bird feeders I had left from a bazaar on a hanging bar outside to the east of the house. emoticon It is quite cute and the birds are a most grateful bunch!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon I hope to get a pic and post it to instagram and maybe on my spark page if I can clear the technical hurdle of getting it from place to place.
I hope you all have a MARVELOUS day and stay warm!! Those temps have dipped emoticon emoticon

emoticon Martha!! I think of you every winter ! You are so nice to reply to my post! Admittedly I like spring to I am just wanting more off time before the spring stuff needs doing! We have received a couple of seed/plant catalogs that make it so tempting to want to hurry winter along! I am holding firm emoticon .
Today three of my girls and I got out for a wonderful horse ride. We missed the sun by quite a few hours it was gone quite early but it was still nice to get out and do something!
I hope winter snows don't land in your yard but I hope we get last years and this years in ours!
Stay Warm emoticon

So glad your family is doing better,

Since I am not a big fan of winter I am not a fan of snow but I will admit that it is pretty.

Our household is dreaming of spring!

Hello Team emoticon I hope you all are well and healthy!! My family is battling a BIG bug right now. emoticon We are purposing to not share it with anyone I hope You understand emoticon Consequently the house tends to get a bit stuffy so we have been opening windows and letting the gorgeous fresh air in !! One advantage to wood heat is things like this are guilt free. emoticon Take care emoticon

emoticon emoticon We are one step into the new year emoticon I want to first say emoticon emoticon Happy New Year to you all!! emoticon
.........and WHEW! emoticon last year had some real bumpy spots that tripped me up. I for one am glad to see the "clean slate", the New Year brings with it. I also do not want to seem like i am in a hurry either because I feel I lost or rather missed some serious moments of reflection and opportunities to see joy while tripping over those bumps in my road. This year I want to be more purposeful in my choices of which roads I choose to travel.
emoticon I am not a big resolution maker because I am not good at keeping me on a regular schedule due to others needs and the various responsibilities in my life. I am not consistent at rising before my family to spend time with the Lord in prayer and in HIs word, or to get my rump going on a walk by myself. I am lousy at putting me in the top 5 of my priorities. I am huge at missing my mark and too content with hitting it sporadically! I hope to turn these things around, Lord willing. I saw our very own LIZYLYNN's spark page the other day with her monthly goals mapped out for the next 5 or 6 months. She had her goal weight at the end of each month. This was inspiring to me and I am going to try to be more like this. She showed me a huge faith mixed with tremendous courage and vulnerability that I admire. Thanks LIZYLYNN!!
How about the other Yakima Sparkers out there. How are you conquering your personal road bumps? Are you a natural at consistency? Maybe you are more like our fellow Sparker LIZYLYNN? No matter what your type we all have needs they are what bring us together on Spark People. So, How can I/we help you/each other? I for one would like to see this year be the year I excavate a road with less bumps and more steady hills that take me up to a place above the valleys that I tend to get stuck in. I need to develop the bridge building skill of overcoming my self and when I rest I want to look back on a view with success and satisfaction in having made the climb. This is my hoped for outcome as I walk through this new year one day at a time, how about you? What is your plan for this "Clean Slate"?

Cheers to you all on the First day of 2019!! You are so emoticon and it is going to be a fabulous year glad were in it together!!

A hill is what we need here. The only hill we have is our driveway which we prefer to not be the playground. When my kids were smaller my hubby would plow the snow up in one big pile off the side so the kids could sled down into the yard. This was terrific fun for them. Some days the kids would make snowmen and in an effort to clear the driveway they would roll the balls from that snow. Often the tractor and plow would be needed to push the huge balls into the yard. We took the kids picture for Christmas with a snowman they made that was close to 8 feet tall. They positioned it so when you opened the front door there he was!! This is a favorite photo of mine! If there had been enough sticky snow where we got our Christmas tree I wanted to have snowmen strewn about in our family photo. Life has some grand moments!!

I liked winter when I was a kid. There was a long steep hill where we would take our sleds and snow disc. It was great going down but the long walk back up was tiring. Dad used to take us ice skating on a near by pond. I was never that good at it but enjoyed sliding on the ice. Years later he took my daughter ice skating. I still get out and shovel snow but gave up sledding after the kids were grown. I prefer to stay in where it is toasty warm now rather than be out on the cold.

Hi Martha!! So nice to hear from you here!! I think of you each time it snows after our first conversation about it! I wish I could be more places at once sometimes so I could help you shovel or get places safely. I do know i am not Wonder woman but a nose that twitch and things happened might be nice.
I wish more so that I had the means to redirect all the unwanted snow to my house. I would make a sled run that would make the climb up so worth it! You know the kind that only show up on tv or in the movies!
Although to be honest as a kid we only had the slope out back and it was a rocky one too! We would get a tiny dusting of snow and those plastic saucers sailed over those slick rocks!! We did this for hours in the evening during Christmas break. If it had not gotten dark we may have never come inside! This is a happy memory of some fabulous times with my sisters!
Do you have a fun memory from your childhood in MIssouri?


Hugs, Crissy

I am not crazy about winter but I guess it is good someone likes it. emoticon Fall is my favorite season but it only seem to last about a week here. I miss fall back in Missouri where I am from.

Hello Yakima Sparkers!!

I just wanted to update the topic or rather the season really. You see winter is my favorite season and I would love it if it was embraced by more people but truly I am fine with whatever season hits the mark for you, they all have their good & bad points.
As a reminder this is open to all of you to share, talk, chime in or comment. We are a team and we share this page. I want to encourage you here and I need encouragement too so emoticon in advance!!

Holiday cheers!!
