A Meltdown

 A rare February treat for us to have temperatures in the 50s!  Wednesday was more in the 40s but still felt warm.  We all went outside for some fresh air and for just a moment I felt like Noah and his family getting off the ark after 40+ days.  It was great to stretch our legs and fill our lungs.  With bright eyes, Avery said, the Groundhog didn't see his shadow so that means spring is almost here. :)

Avery and I worked on snow and ice removal.  Won't be long now before we will be able to access both sides of our car in the driveway.  We'll dip back in the 30s tomorrow and stay there a while and undoubtedly there will be more snow, but right now we are just grateful!

 Yesterday was warmer still and I can't even describe the feeling.  Hope!  Happiness! to not have freezing cold temps meet us when we opened the door.  Didn't take Amanda long to go from this... this.  Silly girl.

This morning when we walked outside Avery stopped abruptly and stuck her nose in the air.  She said, Mom!  It smells like Florida!  Doesn't it?  It smells like Florida!  I immediately thought of another day she said that and said a quick prayer of thanks for my blog that allows me to remember.  The other post is HERE.  That girl has a crazy memory.  Crazy.

As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will never cease.
Genesis 8:22
