Ice Ice Baby
I was thankful that we had a gas stove. This is my first gas stove. I tried igniting the flame and it would not work. I fretted for a moment because I was going to make something warm for my family to drink and I needed to boil some water. I figured out that I just needed a match to light the burner and I was soon in business. Who knew that I needed some electricity for a gas stove?? Not me! I kind of felt like this guy after I got the fire going....
I made our little cups of hot tea and warmed up our insides.
I offered this fellow $50.00 for his warm fur coat but he did not take me up on it.
This picture was taken from my cell phone but you can see the ice on the trees. The girls and I thought it looked like Narnia.
What I don't have pictures of is my dear friends and their LARGE GENEROUS hearts. I got a call on my cell phone from my sweet friend checking up on me. She still had power and was checking up on us. She insisted we come to her home and camp out until the power came back on. Which we did. And boy were we thankful! How can you repay someone for their generous hospitality? She and her hubby feed us yummy food and gave us a warm bed to sleep in. Priceless I tell you....priceless.
I have been seeing women all over blog land talking about Spring and they were ready for it to come. I am officially on that band wagon. Come on Spring.....I am soooo ready for you!!
