Most of the latest snow has melted aside from areas here and there where shoveled snow has been piled up.
We had an unusually mild December and beginning of January and then the remainder of January has been quite cold. A warm front arrived over the weekend and Sunday, January 31st had springlike weather that was amazing. It went as high as 63 degrees.
I took a stroll around the neighborhood in the morning, and then walked down to my son’s later on. They all went for a walk after that ( their morning was spent at a wrestling match ) and showed up here with the puppy, wanting to know if I’d like to keep him while they went to Pizza Hut. After two hours of non-stop play with my dogs, he collapsed and is snoring at my feet.
And while Lily gets frisky for a short while, she is clearly tired out from the shenanigans of the pup and my other dog.
Another visitor with an ulterior motive is my youngest son. He moved to a new apartment with a new roommate and once again, without a washer and dryer, is over here to do laundry. That’s okay…I see him more often now :)
A reminder to those of you who wanted to participate : February 1st is a prayer & fast day for Diana and John and anyone else on your prayer list. Fasting can be anything from giving up snacks to a modified fast of skipping a meal, a juice fast, a water and juice fast, a water and broth fast, a bread and water fast, a sunup to sundown fast where you can have a hearty breakfast first if you get up early, or whatever you can manage to do. If this is a day where it is impossible to fast in any way, then prayer and prayer alone.
“Where two or three are gathered in My Name ”
There has been a wonderful response over at Nana Diana Takes A Break when she got the word out, and even if you already knew about it, Mimi, such a gifted writer, has a beautiful and inspirational post, not to be missed, over at 247 Mulberry Lane.
There is power in united prayer…many of us have seen this in Blogland already. So let it continue and go stronger, Amen. Acts 2: 1 “they were all together in one place ” Then it was an upper room, now it is in the cloud :)
