Snow, Snow and more Snow

I just had to say something about this snow. This is Central Indiana, not upstate New York, so we don’t have snow covering our windows like some of the pictures I’ve seen. However, as a Southern woman, I just don’t have all that much experience with snowfalls that come close to a foot. I know, I know, wimpy and all that – but it is amazing to me how much a foot of snow slows things down, I am just not capable of imagining what it must be like in update NY.

I didn’t go in today, snow and ice are still falling – and my car is small enough and light enough that if I hit a rabbit I am probably dead… seemed prudent to stay home today.

I’ve actually spent a good bit of my adult life away from the South – but I don’t remember getting this much snow at one time since I lived in Nebraska twenty years ago – and I didn’t yet drive in those years (I didn’t learn until my late 20s).

Ok, back to my snow-day activities – and I wish all the Orthodox a good first week of Lent, hopefully it won’t be a snow-bound one next week!


Time for a break…

Wow, I haven’t posted here since January 9th! It seems like I either have time for stitching or posting, rarely both 🙂

As today is Meatfare Sunday, aka Sunday of the Last Judgment – which means that Great Lent begins in one week. I won’t be posting again until least Bright Week (the week after Pascha, in early April).

There are still a few blogs that I will be reading from time to time, but things are going to be too busy for me to spend much time on the internet. One thing is sure though, when I return there will be pictures!

I am also considering moving this blog, such as it is, to WordPress, but there will be a message here should I make the move.
