Winter, Oh Winter... their going to be ANY relief from this cold snap? Again, tonight it is going to be somewhere around -40 overnight! This cold weather has been making itself known since early December!
However, on a more positive outlook, as it is the new year and the weather is something completely out of anyones hands...I did have to bundle myself up yesterday and brave the weather in order to capture some beautiful pictures. I do love how the snow looks on the trees around my home and I just could not pass up the opportunity to snap a few shots. It is also part of my "Project 365" so bundling up with my camera for a few minutes was definitly worth it. Believe it or not, it actually felt so good to breathe in some of the fresh air and trudge through the snow in my yard. It is actually really deep...almost to my knees!
They say warmer weather is coming our way, so soon hopefully. It definitly would be nice to get outside and enjoy the fresh air for more than just 5 minutes at a time.
I am also spending some time enjoying what is the last remaining few days of winter holidays before it's back to work and normalcy. I have yet to put away my Christmas tree and decorations...which very well could end up being my Sunday project. As much as I look forward to putting it all out when the season begins, I also look forward to packing it away and anticipating what is to come next and all of the new holidays for 2009 that are around the corner! It's almost time to start thinking about Valentine's Day...well almost!
For now, I think I will just savor the last of my time off, prepare for a great work week and just be thankful for everything that is.

One of my little girls asked me today if I could put the Christmas books away and get out the Valentines books, she said its almost February. It made me smile and giggle!
