** It's Begun **

This is the little picture that my AOL Weather Box has on it for today. I've never seen so many different symbols for ONE DAY of weather before! I think the weather forecasters just may be right. It's already begun sleeting and freezing rain here. I'm all nice and warm and safe inside. Got lots of firewood, my little transistor radio, pens and pencils and paper, flashlights and candles. What more could a writer ask for?? Well, I also have water and diet soda....OH, and wine.....ooohhhh, I better make up a few pots of coffee and tea, and try to keep them warm, too...Just in case, ya know!  



Wherever you are.....Stay warm and safe and blissfully serene!

(And I feel the need to post the same quote as yesterday's. It just fits so well.)

"What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness." — John Steinbeck (Travels with Charley: In Search of America

  6. Just got your comment and answered, but I'll say it here as well:
    stay warm and safe honey!

    Writing sounds wonderful at any time, especially on cold or rainy days.
    But not on days when it's snowing beautifully though, that's way too distracting, for me at least :P

    Huge hugs :)

  15. Hi Becky, what a lovely post. I feel for all you folks in the storm paths. Hang in there! Also wanted to say THANK YOU so much for the lovely comment you left on my Saturday excerpt. I hope you are continuing to enjoy the novel and have not come upon the word "unchempy." I must verify it now, but I don't for a minute believe it's a word!!!
