Winter is back…

with a vengeance.  That doesn’t stop me from doing the countdown to Spring which stands at 58 days.  It is 4 degrees as I type this, the sun is shining brightly, the wind chill is 18 below zero and the wind is gusting to 38 miles per hour.  We got about 3 inches of snow but with the wind gusting so high it has drifted again.

This is looking out my front storm door.  It is frosted clear to the top.  Those are the angels that I keep above my door.  The sign reads ‘Angels gather here.’

You can see here the footprints my paper carrier left this morning.

Here you can see how the snow has drifted again.  Needless to say, my car is covered again.  Need I repeat that I am getting really tired of the snow and cold??

I have a pot of ham and beans cooking.  I will make corn bread to have with that.  Of course I am cooking way to much for one person so feel free to come on over and have a bite to eat.

I hope the sun is shining wherever you are and the ground is bare of snow.  Stay safe and be happy!!

  2. Hi Beth, You are warmer then we are. The wind has died down , but blew hard through the night. We missed the snow for which I am thankful. Just stay inside and keep warm. The ham and beans with corn bread sounds yummy. I can't wait for spring. I hoping it warms up some more before I have to get out. Take care. Stay warm and safe. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend.

  3. Glad you have sunshine today. It is another cold dreary day here, about -10. Yesterday we had snow and lots of wind. If I lived closer I would come over and have some ham and beans with you. Stay warm.

  4. HI.. just seems the winter won't let up sometimes. So tiring having to deal with it. No wonder so many snowbirds are anxious to get away from the north. I am beginning to see their point of it. I am positive there are many angels watching over you dear Sis.. many. A very good sign to have in any home. Beans sound good but I always make them taste good and therefore they are too darn salty. I am making chicken cassarole today. Something that will last the rest of the week. Hope it warms up for us all soon. Take care prayers always for you. XoXo

  6. Sorry for the persistent nasty weather my friend. It's true: the countdown doesn't stop regardless of the weather right now.

  8. Mmm, cornbread on a snowy day sound perfect. We are going to get blasted overnight. Forecast says a foot of snow and blizzard conditions. So sick of it.

  9. Oh Beth, my heart breaks for you having to clean off your car every time it snows. Those of us with garages forget what that is like - not fun at all. I posted a new blog post 3 days ago, but forgot to tell you so you'd have the link. You can just copy this and paste it in the URL line:

  10. Will be right over to share that yummy food - if I can get through all the snow! Have a good day!

  11. We'll be getting a couple more inches of snow tonight. Wind chill here this morning was -35! Too cold for anything living. January is such a long month. It doesn't help when the weather is rotten either. At least the sun is shinning today even if it's too cold to be out in it.

  12. We had a little bit of sun. but then snow every where.
    You stay warm and take care of yourself.

  13. We have the same exact weather, Beth. The sum makes it seem warm but it is definitely mot!

    I am reading a book set in the early 1800's and they eat a lot of ham and corn bread...so of course I'm craving it!

    XO,
    Jane

  14. I couldn't believe it when I opened the back door to let the dogs out and discovered it's warm and humid. I imagine we'll have some more chilly days, though. I have the back door and a window open.

    Love,
    Janie

  22. Lovely little angels, Beth. You do have guardian angels around you! You needed them this past year. I am so tired of the snow and cold I can't stand it- xo Diana

  24. The angels are lovely in the window.
    Keep warm.
    Never had cornbread, ham & bean, had not heard of the latter two, seems I am missing something :)

  25. I love your quote at the very beginning of your blog Beth! Han and Beans is such a heartwarming recipe to prepare. I know it smells sooo good! Honey, we would have so much snow in Maine that you could not get out the front door, or the back door for months. We simply must think of springtime when it gets us down a bit! Always enjoy your photos and posts!!

  26. Soup and bread is perfect! I'd be right over but it's too cold to go outside and you can't see to drive cross country in this blizzard! ;)

  27. Neat photos! I'll be right over after I put my boots on. It is -10° as I write. Spring is coming Spring is coming Spring is coming!

  28. Beans & cornbread sounds great. My grandmother used to make that. That is how I learned to, as well. Oh my, I agree. I really am tired of the snow and ice!

  31. I know I know ! I'm late to the party again ! It's cold here too. We got a bit of snow. Some were not so lucky. You know where I'm going in the late Spring. I wish you could be there with Arlene and I. You would fall in love with the place too!
