The Quiet After the Storm


Well the holidays have passed once again.  The blizzard that blew in on Christmas Eve is well on its way to melting.  Remanants of it can still be seen in the drifts that are still to slowly melt in the colder tempertures.  The days have been full of sunshine which helps.  The birds were glad to see the winds die down and the snow cease.... The seed was scattered throughout the yard yet still I have ventured out since to recoup their feeders to full status again as that is the way they like it. 

Christmas eve proved to be a very special time as who came to my back door about 11:00 pm that eve but Vincent himself.... He slowly managed his way home although he had to take the long way and about 3 times long as normal.... It was good to have him home with me for the holidays.... He was wise not to tell me he was going to attempt the trek as I would have been worried all day... Many people were stranded throughout the state with the blowing snow and such.... We had a quiet Christmas day and my son an his fiancee came in yesterday and left this morning....All in all my Christmas was a good one. 

I am ready though for the coming year and all the things it brings... I am hoping that the skys stay clear for the beautiful full moon that will grace our skys this week.  A blue moon to be exact.  Something you don't see all too often... There is the normal cleaning up after the holidays and my drawing for my giveaway is this Wednesday.... Guess I should be thinking about January's giveaway...

To all of you I wish a wonderful week and look forward to catching up on all the back blogging that I have missed over the last few days.....

It is good to see you back. I was growing a little concerned due to your snowstorm.

I know just what you mean about catching up on the bloggers...seems that they've all returned with a vengeance...I can't keep up with them all!

So glad that you and Vincent were together for the Holidays...I was a little sad that you would have to be apart.

Happy New Year my sweet friend!

I was hoping for clear skies for the blue moon also, but, snow showers are in the forecast.
Good to hear everyone's travel was safe!

I too was a little anxious for you and all the snow. My BIL is a long haul trucker and his route takes him through OK and he said is was really bad this last trip through. Glad Vincent got home and your Christmas was good. I am with you in being excited about the new beginings and the Blue Moon.
My Daddy Jack (grandfather) used to tell us that true friends are like the Blue Moon, they don't come along very often but when they do they are spectacular. So having said that, let's enjoy the blue moon as new friends.

What a wonderful Christmas present to have him home with you! Your descriptions of the snow are so beautiful. Can't wait for the blue moon this week.

This is actually Tracy D from the FaerieCastle but I have started a second blog.

I'm glad he didn't tell you he was coming. You couldn't have helped and it would have made you crazy with worry. Glad he was there.

What a perfect gift :) Glad he arrived safely and that you were blanketed in, nice and cozy.

I am so glad that you are back. Haven't heard anything from you since the start of the storm. Sounds like our hubbies took us both by surprise. He didn't tell me either, knowing that I would worry. Thrilled that you had each other to spend Christmas with!

(((HUGS)))

I am so, SO glad that you didn't spend Christmas alone! Glad your son made it too! And that the snow has finally stopped!

Lyon said...

That crazy, wonderful man! I can't believe he made the trip through all that mess. Thank goodness he made it to you safely, and I'm happy to hear that you indeed had loving company for the holiday after all. =)
