These are random musings of my life journey, the people, animals, places, and events which have woven, and continue to weave, a tapestry that is me. We all know there is no real destination, only the ongoing experiences which blend together, creating the trail. Each step gives a glimpse of what is to come, without allowing me to see the end result. It is exciting. I have a home base that is mine, that gives me a place to rest. This is it. This is where my heart is, no matter where I journey...................

Well, who'd a-thunk it?

I slept for nearly 9 hours last night, and I feel rested this morning. Isn't sleep amazing? So restorative. However, I went to sleep too early, because I woke and couldn't go back to sleep, and it was before 6:00 AM. Now, if I worked and had somewhere to go, that would be a good thing, but obviously I don't. I need to stay up till at least 10:00 tonight.

When I woke, I knew there would be fresh snow. It was in the forecast and was pretty much a "given," although the amount was not clear. Damn Albuquerque stations ignore this are of the State, for the most part. The forecasters were whining last night that Albuquerque might get 4-6 inches overnight and today. I took a fast peek out the bedroom window, and yes, there was fresh snow and snow falling. After brushing my teeth, washing my face and brushing my hair, I walked to the back door and looked out. Uh, OK, there was about five inches. I didn't expect that, just a couple. I turned on the computer and checked the weather and guess what? I could get anywhere between 10" and 25" today and tonight! Lawdy!!

It is a really good thing that Terri left when she did. Temps are going up to the 40s and 50s beginning Saturday, but even with that, it will take a few days to be reasonably melted. I'm hoping it will melt off enough that I can get to Albuquerque on Monday. If not .... well, I won't be a happy camper, at all!

Since I have no control over this (I know, y'all think I'm powerful, but not so much as you think) I'm staying tucked in, warm and cozy just watching the snow fall. And fall. And FALL!!!!!

So, Merry Chr... oh no, that's passed, isn't it? Well, Merry Snow Fall!!!!!!!!!!!!

TODAY'S A JAMMIE DAY AT MY HOUSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And you can't get here to make me get dressed! Na, ner, na, ner!!!


  1. I am soooooooooo jealous!! There is a storm coming through tonight and tomorrow, but we aren't suppose to get anything. It's all going to be south of here. I am so disappointed and sad. :(

  2. That's more snow than we have in Michigan. We got a dusting last night but I don't believe we've got a foot yet this year. Nobody's even used their snowblowers.

    It is cold here though. It's two degrees above zero with the wind chill.

  3. I knew I'd getcha on that, Caroline! This is unbelievable!

    Dave, I'll bet your temps will squash ours almost any day, though! This is so unusual, but for once the timing seems to be working for me. Whew!

  4. Beautiful pics!!! You sound better, glad you are recouping okay. And yes, PJ days ROCK!!!

  5. Well at least it's pretty. That might be all you can say about it. Well, it also helps the water table.

    I hoipe you have lots of food and goodies to see you through in case you end up on the 25" side. We are having snow now and more is predeicted. I'm snuggled in this afternoon too.

    Take care and keep warm.

    ~hippo hugs~

  6. Beautiful snow pictures Lyn! It has been raining non-stop around here all night and I guess all day today. I don't like it, but what can you do????

  7. Donna, thanks! Yes, I'm better now that I've rested. Whew! and PJ days do rock, but there is a special joy when no one could argue you out of it!! LOL!

    HippoChick, I didn't enjoy snow when I lived in KC and was working. Now that I no longer have to fight it, I love it! Yeah, I have plenty of everything I need. I shopped for 2-3 weeks before the surgery, so I'm set! Thanks, I will!

    Moni, thanks. I know this is strange, but I'd rather have snow than rain. I'm enjoying it so much!

  8. So pretty yet so evil!!!!! Pj day has been going on here for several days darn flu. But yeah pjs are awesome if your not sick.

  9. That's amazing. I've never seen that much snow. I dream of PJ days but they never seem to hit at the right time.

  10. Bobbie, yeah, sick PJ days don't compare to elective PJ days, for sure. I hope you are better soon.

    Linda, you've always lived in the wrong places for this kind of snow, haven't you? I highly recommend occasional "off the grid" days for jammies. Very therapeutic!

  11. Hello from a long, lost, reader. I'm trying to start blogging again and guess what. Your blog was my first to revisit. I can tell I have much "catching up" to do.

    I hope all is well and love your photo.


  12. Oh, Reach, it is very good to hear from you! I've missed your posts, and wondered how you are!! Welcome back, my friend!

  13. Yup that's snow alright!
    Love Di


If you have something to say about it, just stick out your thumb, and I'll slow down so you can hop aboard! But hang on, 'cause I'm movin' on down the road!!! No time to waste!!!
