New Beginnings in 2014

Time to think about the new year and new beginnings in 2014. I'm fortunate to be starting the year with my whole family here. I took this picture the day after the ice storm. My daughter was taking a picture of me while I was taking one of her. I was afraid to walk down the icy boardwalk to Lake Michigan. My son in law "skated down" and my daughter walked in the snow to keep her footing. (She's still a country girl even after all of these years in the city.)

So, I resolve to do these in 2014...

1. Remember to enjoy each day, whatever it brings.
2. Take time to smell the roses and buy some roses once in awhile.
3. Walk for exercise so frequently that I wear out my new shoes.
4. Keep up with my weather blogger friends on WU!

Happy New Year to ALL!

Getting ready to leave for school...first day back in a week. I took a picture of the red sky this morning, remember what that means? No idea how to upload it from iPhone/iPad, but you get the idea!

This is quite a winter you are having! Since you are getting it, we aren't so much. Today was our first rain in quite awhile now, but it was over an inch. It has been a dry and dull winter. A lot of fog and overcast days, but not much action beyond the fog. I sense you are eager to "share". But then we wouldn't know really what to do with it if we got it.

You have missed a lot of school days it seems to me. But you don't have to make them up? We always had to do that.

My oldest, a son, is off to live in Nicaragua now. Since your daughter lived in Chili you can probably relate a bit. He will be working to manage a mission project - creating the transition of a school our church started there several years ago to become self-sufficient. The little town is quite poor and has no real viable local economy. So the challenges are great. He is scheduled to be there a year or a bit more. It was busy earlier this month getting him packed and sent off, and now he has been there two weeks and is getting settled and started.

Sounds like you are well prepped to outlast the snow and cold! Hope it all goes as you plan and no surprises, like power outages, etc.

On another note, Go Hawks! This Sunday, that is.

How long until springtime?

There are just 50 days left to the 21st March, and the first day of spring!!

Have you got enough wine!!

This teacher has dropped into summer vacation mode, except without the sun, beach, pool and garden. Not to mention the fact that police have asked people to stay home, if possible. No school today and it has already been cancelled for tomorrow due to the low wind chills below -20F. Thankfully, I DO HAVE power, heat, food (wine, too)in the frig and INTERNET. What did people do before the Internet?? It is right up there with power and heat for me.

How long until springtime?

Hey, you doing all right up there in all that snow? Might be time to go on Craigs List and find a pair of cross country skis so you can get out of the house a bit. Good time to goof off. You know when it's a snow day you don't have to be productive ;)

Oh, poor you...it seems to be never ending.

I do hope it clears up a little before next weekend so hubby can get home, but after the amount that fell, it was probably best he didn't attempt to drive home.

Bet you there is no school next week, either:-(.

Open another bottle of red wine and make some cookies!!

More snow overnight (7 inches) and wind gusts over 40 MPH. I think we have had enough! My weather blog is just snow, snow, snow. No school here since Wednesday when this whole thing began.

Haha Sandi, that is a great story. I am hoping that a fire pit would be used on a mild spring or fall evening...not one where we are bundled up tightly!! That doesn't sound like much fun to me!

This second winter blast of polar air has brought us daily temperature in the teens and today we had 8 inches of snow while I was at school. Not something that normally happens, I could barely make out the road at 4pm when I was headed home. It was like driving through a confetti storm of white snow. We have gotten an inch an hour all day with no end in sight for another 10-12 hours. Yikes!

All evening events in the area are cancelled due to the heavy snow and low visibility. Canceling events is a way to keep people home and off the roads.

How you doing in that second round of snow? Did you get much?

Funnily enough, I was watching "Winter Watch" on TV last night. It is a live show all about our wildlife and how they cope in the winter. It doesn't come on until 8pm, so it is dark when they present it. It shows what is happening using infrared cameras, as well as some timelapse. The presenters sit outside to front the show - wrapped up in thick jackets, hats, scarves and gloves, on a bench in front of an open fire pit! I thought of you!! lol

Hopefully you won't need to wrap up warmly when you light your fire!

I just heard this evening that we are now at the mid point of our winter. That means the temperatures will slowly warm over the next month and the days should get a bit More sunny. We have not seen the sun in two weeks. The snow showers fell outside all day today, but it is not as cold as it was at the beginning of January.

Yes, I'm dreaming of sitting around a toasty campfire and enjoying the time with family and friends. We have one of those outdoor heaters, but some comfy chairs and a fire area sound like fun... if the mister is up to it. The outside of the fire area is created with brick type blocks stacked and arranged to make a nice addition to our landscape.

I like the sound of a fire pit. They advertise them here, but we don't sit out enough to warrant one. We do have an outside heater, and it gets used if we have a party or something similar, but if it turns cold outside...I go in!!
But sitting outside, with your family, drinking wine, watching the stars and toasting your toes sounds a lovely idea!

Happy Sunday!

Cloudy, light snow and cold...what else is new? Light snow falls each day. Steve got home last night and couldn't believe how much had fallen over the past week. He ran the snowblower all over the place today, so I called our son and told him to come over. He joined us for dinner and a little conversation in the evening. Nice to see him and find out what is going on in his life. (He's mostly just driving back and forth to work like we are.) he said hes's seen a lot of people off the road this year. One day he saw a guy off the road and later the guy passed him on the road! Seriously, he hadn't learned his lesson.

Spring will come soon. We are thinking of making a fire pit area in our front yard. I've been seeing pictures of them and they look cozy surrounded by some adirondack chairs. We saw plans for a large brick one at the local home center. Does anyone out there have one?

You really are getting more than your fair share of winter...after last year, when it was a good winter, you knew it couldn't happen again, though.
Have you anything planned for the weekend? Did hubby get home last night?

Having a Christmas celebration after Christmas is a good idea, glad you enjoyed it.

I went out with a friend on Tuesday to celebrate her birthday. She had a voucher for a bottle of champagne to be served with the meal...so I had two glasses, she had two, and then they put a cork on the bottle and let her take it home to finish off....we had to drive, so two small glasses were our limit. Tell you what, I slept well Tuesday night!! Lol

Have a good weekend, hope it isn't too cold :-)

Dinner here is at about 6 and it is still light out. (Well as light as it gets in the late afternoon this time of year.)

Love the wellies, but I still need the UGG boots. Everything is covered with snow. Some parking lots are a bit slushy, but only because they are covered in ice melting sidewalk salt. The temperature is 20 and the forecast is for colder next week.

Had our rescheduled Christmas luncheon this aftenoon at a local restaurant. It was much more relaxing without Christmas looming. Salad and a glass of wine for dinner tonight!

I had a candy striped pink pair for several years, but now have the traditional black... they are ankle boots, I find them more comfortable to wear in the garden!

I noticed the days are getting longer, too, although I bet it gets dark earlier here. Either that, or you eat your dinner before 4:30!! lol

Parts of the north of the country might get snow tomorrow... we will get just even more rain:(

HAppy Tuesday!

Monday night and it is still 40F. We were surprised by another downpour of rain this morning. Snow returns tomorrow with 1-3 inches. The days are getting longer, I can eat dinner before it gets completely dark. YeaY!

Yes, those are my boot prints to the right of the ice path! It's always safer to walk in the snow.

The weather is improving with a high of 40F today. I was able to get out and take a "careful" walk over to the lake to see how the ice is progressing. It was as far out as the eye could see with just a bit of blue water showing beyond. I loved seeing the sand that has appeared. We are almost to mid January, yet have only had 3 days of school so far. It is going by fast and weather this week looks to be cooperating to keep things going smoothly!

Ice carving contest in our town was hampered by the rain and warm temperatures. We didn't go down to see them this year. They are always creative and the carvers do their work while the onlookers stroll past.

Did the rain cause any problems, or actually help to dissolve the snow?

Friday and it is going to rain! After a week of snow and sub zero temperatures the forecast is rain.We have at least 12-14 inches of snow on the ground and many secondary roads are still snow covered. It will be interesting to see what happens when it rains overnight.

Christmas parties are being held this afternoon in the primary classrooms. School was cancelled the last day of school before break, so room parents are conducting the parties today. LOL I will drop in and see what they will be doing (and eating!)

Back to school today. Did you know it is easier to get up in the morning when you have the whole day off? Haha

The warm up (in the 30's) is coming. We have at least 12 inches of snow on the ground, so it is not likely to all melt.

I see it is still cold outside for you, but I assume you are warm and cozy indoors. Sounds like the end is coming into view for you and then it could reverse and be "too" warm? Causing flooding during the thaw?

Over our way it is normal for January. Chilly rain today, but the rain has been gentle, though steady. Our high was 46 and we have had a half inch of rain. I went for a neighborhood walk with my neighbor in the rain this later afternoon and it was quite dark before we returned. With a proper coat it was a very pleasant walk. Not much change ahead for us; perhaps a stronger rain/wind late in the week.

I'm still plugging away on organizing the house post-Christmas and new furniture. There seems to be a lot of distractions that make that "plugging" hard. Maybe a good cold snap/snowstorm would do the trick!

Oh, the thaw is coming quickly.... after all that snow I hope you don't need a "Thames Barrier" to protect you form flooding!

I think I like the sound of the wine and blanket day...I will go and pour a glass and settle down on the couch in the conservatory with MAx - it is warm in there... the sun is shining, and it is 50F out there.

I have a ebook to read... one of my friends has just published her first novel. It is in paperback and on Kindle, and has an espionage/terrorist background. Not my normal choice of novel, but I said I would read it. I am half way through, so I will finish it!

It is 3F this morning and apparently the entire area is "Closed." It is still snowing and the drifts are growing larger. They look like whipped cream across the yard. I'm sticking with the wine and blanket plan for another day since all schools are closed along with many small businesses. Can't really dig out until the wind stops.

January thaw headed in as soon as Friday. The 10 day forecast shows above normal temperatures for each of the days.

Very pretty and very cold! Being able to stay indoors and just look out at it sounds so nice. I sure hope it is all working out for you - the snowblowing, your furnace, the movies are good ones, and that you can truly just relax and maybe catch up on quiet things that seem to always move to the bottom of the list.

Sure glad you had such a wonderful time with your family over Christmas! I am clearly sensing how special that is and it will be increasing for us as our kids begin to scatter during this coming year. By next Christmas it could be a pretty small bunch still here.

I will stop by again soon and keep a weather eye on your snow and cold.... enjoy it as best as you can!

This is what a snow day off of school looks like out of my window this morning. the temperature is 4F and that will be the high for the day. Winds are blowing at 15-25 MPH. Visibility is an issue along with snow depth and cold temperatures. I imagine there will be no school tomorrow.

I can always find plenty to do around the house. Netflix is all queued up with movies if I feel like just plugging in the electric blanket and getting cozy with a glass of wine. It's a new year, might as well enjoy each day - come what may.

22f is warm? I suppose everything is relative,

How will you be informed about the school status on Monday? Do you gets an email/text or is there a 'ring around' like we used to get?
My team leader would ring me at 6:30 knowing I would set off for work at 6:45, and then leave me to ring the rest of the team. I suppose texts and emails might easily be missed whereas a phone call means you know the person is aware of the situation.

Keep warm...I'll send you some warmth!

Balmy 22F this morning with gusty winds. More snow and sub zero windchills on the way for us later this afternoon and during the next few days. I'm headed out to the store to pick up some things while it is "warm." Saw the dust yesterday and got it all cleaned up. Not much left to do in the cleaning department for awhile. Maybe change the filters in our furnace?

Continuing the the post holiday pick up. Sun is peeking out a bit - that means I will see the dust after 2 weeks of clouds. Hahaha.

Thanks for the pretty flower GG. I could use it today.

It is 17F this afternoon with a lower windchill (didn't bother to look at that LOW number.) Can't complain, daughter and son in law got back at 3 AM last night and it is currently -14F in Montreal where they live. Brrrr.
Needless to say I will not be planning a winter vacation to see them!

I'll bundle up one more time to go out and shovel this afternoon. My fingers get cold in about 20 minutes of pushing around that white stuff. We have a snowblower, but I've never really needed to use it in the past 5 years. Guess the mister will need to give me a quick lesson over the weekend.

Happy New Year everyone! We are at 11F this morning. Another unusually cold stretch of weather for us here. The cold should move out by the weekend, which will be great timing for all.

Daughter and son in law leave today after 2 weeks together. I've gotten used to the house being filled again - but they will be anxious to return to their own lives. They brought joy and happiness to our holiday (and our son stopped by more often to hang out.) That was an added benefit.

School doesn't begin until Monday - but the picking up is just getting started. I'm driving them to the airport this afternoon and then the post holiday clean up starts.

Hi Karen, We've had some mild winters over the years and they are enjoyable. Yes, you should appreciate the nice blue sky while it is with you!

Sandi, Thanks for the New Year's wish. We are going out to eat today with daughter and son in law before they leave for Montreal tomorrow. A glass or two of sparkling wine later will probably put us all to sleep at 12:01, if we make it that long!



Happy New Year to ALL!

Snow has it's own kind of beauty - it's just hard to navigate in!

This was the view we had today on our ride along the beach. Just another lovely day. I know that soon enough it will end and we'll truly have winter. I'll just enjoy this while it's here!



This looks more like July or August!

We walked down these steps and onto the snowy beach yesterday. The sky was blue, temps in the upper 30's and the ice was beginning to form along the Lake Michigan shore. It's not my favorite time to walk the beach, but it is a reminder of the beauty that is still there in winter. Plus, my beautiful daughter was with me and that makes it perfect!

Jane, I thought of you and your goals when I read this article in our very local paper. It's called Orange County Breeze - and unfortunately hubby used our most recent copy, the one where I found this article, for wrapping up some Christmas ornaments! Thankfully, I found one page with the web site at the top and tracked down the article. It was in .pdf so I had to do a little copying and pasted and reformatting, but it was worth it! Hope you enjoy it too!

by Sandra Rodriguez
Life Repurposed Coach
for Orange County Breeze

So it is December 31, 2013 and I bet you are thinking about all those New Year's resolutions you so diligently committed to last January 1. What happened? You didn't accomplish what you so wanted to achieve. Again! How can you do better in 2014? Plan ahead and be ready January 1.

First, set goals for the year. Be clear why you want to achieve those goals in the first place. Answer the five questions below to help yourself:

1. What am I tolerating and need to change?
2. What would make a huge difference to me?
3. What one thing would I be disappointed or regret if I did not achieve it by the end of the year?
4. What are my top three priorities for 2014?
5. And each week, what can I do to get me closer to my goals?

Second, lose one self-sabotaging habit each month
How do you sabotage yourself on a daily, weekly or monthly basis?

Do you sit in front of your computer to check your email and come up for air hours later and realize you haven't even looked at your to do list?

Do you go to the grocery store without a shopping list and come home with bags full of unhealthy foods?

Do you put off paying bills timely and end up with late charges and a lousy FICO score?

Make your list and tackle one habit each month. It takes about three weeks to set a new habit. At the end of the year you can eliminate twelve self sabotaging habits and how wonderful would that feel?

Third, change up your routine. Shift things around a little! Add meditation to your day or go for a daily run/walk. Eat lunch later or dinner earlier. Discover different routes to drive to work. In short, do things differently!

Every three months make one change. To help you, answer these three questions:
1. What can I stop doing?
2. What can I change up, or change the order of when I do it?
3. What new routines or rituals can I start?
Now get a 2014 calendar - a real paper calendar with large empty blocks for each day that you can post in your office or other work space and easily see.

Write on the calendar:
The weekly steps to achieve your goals, the self-sabotaging habit of the month that you will work at eliminating and every three months what you will add, subtract or change in your routine.

Do this before New Year's Eve and be ready to have a 2014 filled with personal success!

And who doesn't want that?

Still nice weather but it cooled down a little bit today. Still nice enough to get out in the yard and do some yard work. The grass needed cutting and a few weeds needed pulling, and I actually had to water the lawn and garden. That's a bit unusual. I can go sometimes up to a month before any watering, as we will often get rain, or at least enough dew to handle that.


We are due to have a wonderful January 1st and all the newscasters are saying it will boost up our population! LOL When everyone views the Rose Parade, everyone will want to move (so they say, but I don't say that!)

Great set of goals. Especially remembering to find what is good within each day.

While on my after Christmas Half Price Meat hunt, there was an older lady at the grocery that had filled her cart with half price Christmas bouquets. She was going to bring them to people in the hospital.

So I guess I will add to my goals is; try not to miss an opportunity to be kind. (In my case it often means not being a jerk when I have the many opportunities at work.)
