LINK to Friday's Fave Five host blog.1. The snow day that wasn't. Supposedly we were to get anywhere between 3-8" of snow. All the stations, all the models, were forecasting that much. Schools called the day off the night before. And--we were right on the dividing line. The temperature was 2 degrees above freezing. So, we expected to wake up to a winter wonderland, and instead woke up to - a little frost and minimal ice. Mostly a cold rain. I graded papers most of the day and got 3 1/2 sets out of 4 completed - including poetry projects and book reports.
2. A pot of cheeseburger soup. Mom sent it home with me on Tuesday night, and it was nice not to have to cook.
3. A tight roof, plenty of blankets, gas logs and a heat pump, food in the refrigerator. Simple things for which we are not grateful enough, especially on cold, wet winter days.
4. A great day in church last Sunday. Our assistant pastor preached a great message, and the missionaries who came that night gave a sweet program with many memories for our church people who had visited them on two separate missions trips. We went home, as did many others who commented later, refreshed and filled.
5. Birds are eating me out of house and home! I found a 50-pound bag of sunflower seeds last weekend at a feed store, for a great price - and may have to get another bag within the next week! I enjoy watching them.
