I Know This May Come as a Great Shock ...

Constant repetition carries conviction. - Robert Collier

... but, IT'S SNOWING HERE.

Hard to believe. I know!



It started right around 6:00 last night and it's still falling, lightly, but there. We've probably only gotten about 3", but it's made the roads a mess and that means DH will be working from home today. He went into work on Tuesday after our dusting and it took him three hours to get there because there were so many accidents. People forget how to drive in the bad weather. Makes me crazy.

Really, aside from that I don't have a lot of news. Things have been pretty quiet and unremarkable. That's a good thing. There's a curse that says something like: "May you live in exciting times."

So, I'll just be dreaming of the Bahamas for now, and waiting for spring...




======================




Your Birthstone Should Be the Sapphire



Sapphire represents intuition and insight - two qualities you've always possessed.

You are quiet but powerful. You have deep reserves of inner strength.

You are consistent and decisive. You don't change unless there is a good reason to change.

You are true to yourself and what you believe. You have strong values that you live by.



That's about right, and I love sapphires. Too bad my birthstone is a garnet...

We don't get many snow days in the desert. :-) I do miss them. Seriously.

You would hate it down here, we got at least 15 inches between last night and this morning and guess what? Another snowstorm is coming on Friday.

I'll join you in the Bahamas.

Your Birthstone Should Be Peridot

Peridot represents emotional balances and strength... two characteristics you've cultivated.

Often times you are the rock in your friends' lives. You are very stable and secure.

You believe in letting go, especially of hurt from the past. You help others (and yourself) feel renewed.

Life is full of opportunities, and you embrace them. Each day is a new adventure for you!


This is accurate. My birthstone is Aquamarine.

Have a good Thursday and I hope the snow stays away.

Actually, my birthstone IS peridot.

Winter here has actually been pretty mild. I wouldn't mind some more snow, but like where you are no one here knows how to drive in the mess of snow.

Your Birthstone Should Be Aquamarine
Aquamarine brings peace and serenity - two things you value highly in your life.
Like most aquamarine wearers, you're always looking to dig deeper. You aren't superficial in any way.
You seek wisdom and truth. You believe that there is so much meaning to be found in life.
You shun gossip and anything mean-spirited. You only have room for positivity in your life.

Mostly true. My real birthstone is Peridot.

I hope you have a happy day!

It’s snowing here too, Marianne My hubby’s at work and I’m trying to be nice to him by shoveling the driveway. I shoveled it, but you can’t see it.

That storm really picked up steam (so to speak) after it left our area.

You guys are even making the news down here. --sorry.

Are you sure you don't want to come down and stay with me for a while? You can teach me how to bake. :)
