A lot of grumbling going on with this first snow~!

     Goodness to be it's Iowa~! we are suppose to get snow.. Lots of grumbling going on in the area with the first sight of snow.. What do these people expect?   They should know it's coming sooner or later.. These are the same people who complain about the heat and humidity in the summer..  Well it's  just a way of complaining.. I feel bad for the weather man, people try and blame him/her for the weather.
Well, now that I have that off my list I will go on with my day.. I love every day that God gives us ~ all the seasons have something to enjoy, and I do enjoy all of them... This snow is just a reminder of what is coming and it will melt in a few days and be a nice day again.  50 degrees by Friday...  I always tell people "If you don't like the weather in Iowa today,  wait until tomorrow.
      This morning my devotion was about  "How great is the love the Father has lavished on us."   God knows everything there is to know about us, including our past, present and future. He doesn't miss a thing.  He knows my name and the most amazing part is God's heart. His love for me existed before I was born. and it will exist after I am  gone.God loves us~! There is no "ifs" in God's heart.  How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God~ !  And that is what we are~!
     Going to go and get my hair cut this afternoon. I can hardly wait..it's a bit shaggy. Want to stop at the yarn shop and buy some yarn to make a winter hat for the grand kids.. While in Galena, Ill, on Saturday I saw the coolest hat and thought it was fancy.. I thought it was homemade but NO it was made in China.  So I'm wanting to make these hats for Christmas.. Thank you China for this cool hat..~!   On www.delia.blogspot.com   she has a wonderful dry erase clock she made for her 6 year old boy. I'm going to Walmart today, buy all the stuff I need and make one for Ben. It will help him with scheduling his time when he gets home from school. Take a look~~ I think it's a marvelous idea and it will teach him how to tell time at the same time...Thanks Delia...~!~!
     Ben was over last night and he  wanted to play with the train board with Thomas the Trains that we have here..  We had a good time... I got out the Lego's and we built tunnels for the trains to go under and a house to store them into, it doesn't have a roof but that is good as it's easier to get the trains in and out of the house..  We had a great time and I had his mom set a timer when it was time for him to go home.. We told him he had 5 minutes and when the timer went off he was O.K. with stopping.. He ran and got his shoes , coat and hat on and gave goodbye kisses and hugs to Pa Pa Dee , and me and off he ran to the car to jump into the backseat in his car seat.. I was very surprised but happy.. Off they went with blowing kisses to them as they went out the driveway. What a bundle of joy he brings to our lives..
     The birds are gulping down the food this morning.  It's good to see them at the feeders. The snow is still coming down and it's so pretty..The county has their trucks with the snow blade on the front of them to clear the snow and ice off the road. Amazing ~!  Have a Tiggeriffic Day ~ ta ta for now from Iowa:)

Enjoy your haircut! I'm way overdue - it's been more than 6 months now. Hard to find the time!

Lego tunnels sound fun :-)

I would be gulping down food too. It sounds nippy where you are. I hope you had a great shopping trip.

LOL! I looked out the window this morning and saw the snow. While I was NOT happy about having to venture out in it I did realize that it is Iowa and it is November. I guess it's time.
Hope you had a good afternoon and stayed warm and dry.

Robert Frost ~ "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening"

Whose woods these are I think I know. His house is in the village, though; He will not see me stopping here.. To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer..To stop without a farmhouse near..Between the woods and frozen lake..The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake..To ask if there is some mistake. The only other sound's the sweep..Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark, and deep, But I have promises to keep, And miles to go before I sleep, And miles to go before I sleep.
