I LOVE SNOW DAYS! It is as simple as that. As Blizzard Warnings sounded a couple days ago of our impending weather coming to the plains of South Dakota, I was in utter delight. The anticipation was thrilling. In South Dakota a blizzard can be very
unmerciful, yet blow threw quickly. Then again, it may not. This morning I awoke, peered out the window and leaped out of bed with such amazement of the HUGE flakes that fluttered by my window. Mesmerized by Mother Nature's beautiful display of winter.
It so reminds me of a little girl looking out the front porch window, oh so many years ago. Waiting for her Dad to pull on his boots to check livestock. Hoping he would ask for her assistance on this blustery day. I don't know what is was, the thrill of
going "out in the storm" or the trust my Dad had in me to stay close and help where I could. Either way, it was like walking in a little part of heaven with the snow falling over us as if we were little trees in the forrest. But now grown, if find myself
in my mothers shoes on snow days....in the kitchen. What shall it be (crossing our fingers we don't lose power!) Cinnamon Rolls, Cookies, Raised Donuts (grandmas recipe of coarse) . A pot of chili or pot roast in the oven...i have been planning for days
for this most awaited nature's event. So it is off to the kitchen I go with my AR close by. Church has been canceled. A few morning prayers and a cooking we will go! May you all have a wonderful Sunday and enjoy the snow if you should find in floating
past your windows. Before the north wind finds it way here I might even ask that little girl to venture out "into the storm", looks like great snowman snow to me!
