A Great Give-a-Way...

and I didn't want any of you to miss it.

Stephanie of "Old World Primitives" is celebrating her one year blogiversary and one of us just might just get the gift!! All you need to do is click on "Old World Primitives" to see the goodies, and I mean "goodies", then leave a comment to enter. I have already left mine.

Now, I would say good-luck...but, I mean, after all, that would be pushin' it. At least I'm sharing the news with you...but, I really, really want those goodies for myself!!! :-)

Another heads up...the Old Farmhouse Gathering Etsy team will be starting their Spring Celebration at the end of the week. I'll be posting pics and links as soon a I can.

Love those comments...keep 'em comin'. :-)

Ice Storm...2009

I am so happy that you are here. For my very first post on my new blog, I have decided to share some pics of the ice storm that hit a big part of our country in January.

We woke up on Tuesday morning to see everything covered by sleet
covered ice. An ominous looking sky overshadowed everything. We had been warned that the worse was yet to come...and it was.

On Wednesday morning, we woke up to another couple of inches of ice. The sound of breaking bra
nches and falling trees, that had begun to some extent the night before, had become continual and was to last for two more days. I was dreading going out to see what damage was done.

We still have some broken electrical lines on the property, but they can wait. So many trees have fallen
and even more have lost limbs. Some trees were bowed so low you couldn't imagine what kept them from crashing on down. The branches hanging to the ground in front of the shed are now spread out over the top of it where they once were.

By the time I ventured out to take pics, more
than half of the ice had melted. At on point, the ice had completely encased the twigs, in the pics most of it has fallen off. The forlorn bush in the pic below is my Rose of Sharon...I am happy to report that when the ice melted it regained it's former magnificence.

There are those that have still been without
electricity...but, it was expected that everyone in our neck of the woods will be back on today.

Still others not far away in Kentucky

and other states that have lost so much more...
please keep all of those who have suffered and
are still suffering in your prayers.
