Treats for your family

January 27, 2013

Is it possible Mother Nature and Old Man Winter are having some kind of a contest? We get a few (very few) days that gives us the impression that maybe spring might come early and then we are plunged into the deep freezer. It looks like a you-know-what kind of contest between the two with us as the ones who don't like it. Of course, this next week will be an entirely different kind of weather, so I guess we will just take what we get. I like sweaters better than shorts, anyway. The gas company loves this cold spell, but my bank account doesn't. Just think how the pioneers felt when the weather was like this years and year ago. It is a wonder anyone even wanted to live in this climate. We can be so thankful we are in this century and didn't get dumped in the "Stone Age." Anytime you get to feeling sorry for yourself, just think about what you have that your ancestors didn't even know about.
