Just Dodged The Bullet

Whew!!! Praise the Lord, we only got about a quarter inch of ice, and then about an inch or so of grainy snow on top of that. Other places all around us got beau coups of snow, but as I commented to sister, we got just enough to make it dangerous to drive in, and not enough to play in or make snow cream from it. Rats! Oh, well, the weather geeks are calling for more snow, sleet, and/or freezing rain tonight, and again Sunday afternoon. Bro. Jim called earlier and said the church van wouldn't be runnning, and that the church parking lot looks like a skating rink. Bro. Bobby is waiting to decide whether to have preaching at 11 am and dismiss Sunday School, but I told him in my opinion, it was not worth risking anyone falling and breaking something, especially our sweet elderly folks. I also told him that I would not be there either way. I really don't need to fall, that's for certain; that would be the last thing I need.

I made Rotel Spaghetti tonight, first time I have made it in years. It was good, even Jessica, Chris, and his friend, Jason, ate it. Gasp! Shock, shock! I suppose I should be flattered, Chris says Jason is very picky, and won't eat much of anything, especially something homemade. He mostly eats fast food. Those two idjits have been out driving in the snow and ice all day. Good sense can't be forced on people, I have discovered in my old age, lol.

I talked to Bill for a good while last night. I am sincerely enjoying getting to know him. I regret all the years that he, Dwight, and Mom wasted, not keeping in touch, and he does, too. That time can't be regained, but we can keep in touch and get to know each other now. He is a riot, and we just seemed to click from the very beginning. Our personalities seem to be very similar, and we both have highly developed senses of humor. Diane + Bill = a rocking good time, :-)

Speaking of rocking, I am listening to yahoo music in my headphones, classic rock, and they are playing some dang good stuff. I like all kinds of music, from classic country, hard rock, some metal, 80's hair bands, 50's rock-n-roll, southern gospel, bluegrass, and even some of the hip hop and stuff out today. All of Jessica's friends can hardly believe that I listen to some of the same stuff they listen to. I have always listened to all different kinds of music. Of course, my tastes in books are just as eclectic: romance, science fiction, fantasy, westerns, war and spy stuff, and military conflicts......and anything else that catches my interest.

Well, I am going to see if any of the family is on yahoo messenger. I am having withdrawals. Cecil and B haven't been on in several nights, and it's been a couple of weeks since Ducky has been on. I haven't talked to Dwight in several days, either. We shall see........

Hi Diane,
I just checked the weather here in Nashville and it's 11 degrees. I had NO idea...I mean, it's COLD, but 11? Oh well, aside from that, I really am thankful for the cold weather. It makes things "right" for Spring and Summer. I was so afraid that we weren't going to have a winter...which means BUGS! :)

I'm glad to hear that you've been enjoying your favorite music tonight. I listened to Classic R&B and 70's Hits while doing some things around the house today.

BooMama has the cold temps in B'ham, but no snow and was preparing something warm and yummy for supper. I had sushi...and it was delish. Now, go ahead and scream! :)

I agree totally about the cold weather and the bugs, sister. I mentioned about a week or so ago in my blog, that I was afraid this was going to happen, that it would wait until time for it to start getting warm, then turn winter on us. Lo and behold!

Wonder what boomama had for supper?

As for the sushi, northeast Arkansas is not the best place to look for fresh seafood to start with, and especially not sushi, ;) I have not been overly enamored of the sushi I have tried, but I'm not sure if it was the quality or just a lack of interest on my part. I might like the authentic, first quality stuff, who knows.

My husband and I both love R&B, and the 70's stuff, too. Really, most any kind of music, especially classic stuff.

Hunker down and stay warm, sister.
We are headed down to about 8 tonight, and the high for Sunday is supposed to be

Hey donnasister,

Thanks for the kind words, glad you enjoy my blog. After all, you are a guest star occasionally, lol. You should consider starting one of your own, you would probably enjoy it, and we likely would, too. Happy Birthday, whenever you read this. I meant to call you and wish you happy b-day, but I got busy making yeast rolls and cinnamon rolls and it got too late on me. I knew you had to get up early for work and were already in bed. I still have your gifts, too, that you forgot last time you were here. Love you, sis, and happy happy.

Diane@Diane's Place said...

I'll make some more rolls and cinnamon rolls sometime when you are gonna be here, sis. After all, you did supply the bread flour and the yeast ;)
They are just about gone, only one yeast roll left and 3 cinnamon rolls. They reheat good in the microwave, though. Jessica will be in from work anytime now and I figure she will finish them off. Lamar says to tell you he blew you a kiss, lol. Maybe if the weather cooperates you can come over this weekend. Love you, sis.
