Mom and Kim were planning on coming over here this weekend for a visit. Weather being what it is in February, unpredictable, plans have had to change. With the chance of snow and freezing rain, they decide it would be better to stay home. I don't blame them, you sure don't see me going over there!
I thought I would share some of the better ones...
* If God is your copilot, trade places.
*Exercise daily - walk with the Lord.
*Coincidence is when God chooses to remain anonymous.
*May you live all the days of your life.
*The best vitamin for a Christian is B1.

I finally got the Christmas decorations taken down from outside (well all but the lights on the roof, that is Kevin's job. :-)
We have enjoyed a nice taste of spring this week. Yesterday it got up to 63! The snow has really melted, and it's nice to see bare ground again.
I've got lots to do today, I've got 3 young men coming from Iowa State University for dinner (fried chicken, mashed potatoes, and some veggies). Kris, Travis, Logan and Melinda are all headed to the Chicago Auto Show this weekend. This will be the pickup spot for Melinda, and the dinner stop. :-)
I've got laundry to work on and I've got to go get the oil changed in the car.
Off I go ~ to scurry around the Iowa countryside. :-)

I have no excuse for not posting in such a long time. I've been lazy, and doing lots of other things. I've been cleaning out files, closets, installing a new printer, laundry, filing fafsas, shoveling, snow blowing, and probably thousands of other things I can't think of right now.
It's been a pretty good week at school. :-) I went on Monday, Tuesday was a snow day because of the impending Blizzard that began at 11:ooam-ish Tuesday, Wednesday no school because of what the Blizzard had done, dumped tons of snow all across the midwest, and now Thursday, a two hour delay because of wind chills 20 to 30 below! Brr.
Here are a few random pictures I have taken as of late...
Kevin's new Backgammon Game.
Allison's Christmas Monster, Walter.

Digging out around the house so the snow isn't packed up against the siding for months!
