Hello Friends and Happy Tuesday
Here we are 7 days out from last week’s snow and ice storm yet the damages are still very much evident. This storm caused major headaches and heartaches for many Pennsylvanians due to the loss of power, initially affecting more than 500K people. Wawa on 202 North almost ran out of coffee and did run out of bagels Wednesday morning.
The day started out cold and dry but it didn’t take long for that to change. Thankfully, in Delaware we didn’t get the brunt of the storm but we all know there’s another one not too far behind. Oops just heard the forecast, they are calling for 6-8 inches of snow beginning Wednesday night – Old Man Winter is not giving up without a fight!

Morning BEFORE the storm
It was a bright, crisp morning in Delaware
After the snow it was beautiful….but
…then came the rain, and unfortunately the trees couldn’t handle the weight of the ice and that’s when the damage began.
Power lines were downed causing many in Chester County to lose power for almost a week and some are still without!

Have you been severely affected by these latest storms?

Hello Friends and Happy Christmas Eve Eve!
This afternoon #2 son and I went to Costco and Target and it was a crazy madhouse, I left tired with a headache and empty handed (too many crying babies). I have one more day to get a gift for #1 son and do my grocery shopping for the week so I will be up and out early tomorrow.
Last night I attended a Holiday slash “Obama Victory Party” hosted by a member of a OFA team who touts themselves as the ones who gave a Pennsylvania victory to the President. The hostess has a beautiful home that was fully decorated with the sights and sounds of the holidays. The dining room table was festively set with delicious foods and sweets and Poinsettias filled each room. It was a wonderful mix of guests and for a few hours we bonded, sharing stories, laughs and genuinely enjoying each other’s company. It was a lovely way to start off the holiday weekend and for that I say, thank you Delores!”
Heading out for the night
I hope you guys have a wonderful night – Smooches!
Yesterday I had a dental appointment and because I live in Delaware, it didn’t make since to drive to work in Pennsylvania afterwards so I took a vacation day. The weather was extremely nice, not too hot and humid so instead of a maxi dress, I wore shorts, and a tank top with flip flops. I joined the BLMGirls Facebook group and while reading the blogs I found recommendations for various photo editing websites, I used Pixl to edit and create this collage.

Pennsylvania has some beautiful scenic views and I am fortunate enough to be surrounded by one of them at my workplace. Commuting almost 2 hours a day in major traffic is very stressful, but thanks to God’s gift of nature I am calmed at the end of the drive. I enjoy taking walks at lunch even dodging the geese poop because I know there are people who do not have the gift of sight to appreciate the beauty that surrounds us.
