ice laden tree branches, snow, and roads...


it was even more beautiful
than it was yesterday.

but, looks can be deceiving.

it is treacherous as hell out there! 

 i happened to think
 about the ice covered hill 
in our front yard,
i leashed maggie and let her out 
to go potty
my babydogger
looked like bambi 
from the scene 
on the frozen pond-
all four legs going
 in different directions.
i was scared to death
 i wouldn't get to her
before she slid down the hill
on the ice and hanged herself.

thank God
 i did
she didn't!


later this afternoon,
katherine and i were 
watching general hospital
and heard a big boom!
i looked out to see
a branch as big as a tree 
had snapped and fallen.
given there was nothing i could
do about it,
i just closed the blinds
and rejoined our story
(already in progress;).


school is already cancelled
for tomorrow
as the roads are completely iced-over... 
 i get to spend another day
snuggled up with katherine and my three m's.

i love snow days with katherine,
i love my three m's, 
i love electric blankets,
i am thankful we have electricity
to keep us warm.
thank you, God!

love and God's blessings,
dani xxx
