SNOW DAY - The Apartment

Praise the Lord from the earth, Fire and hail, snow and clouds; Stormy wind, fulfilling His word;               -Psalm 148:7-8 

We finally had a snow day here in New Hampshire.  The last time it really snowed was the Halloween weekend storm where we got a ton of snow.  There was a lot of damage due to all the leaves still being on the trees and we missed a few days of school.

I made a pot roast using Ree Drummond's Perfect Pot Roast recipe.  And I ate it alone.  Hubby is at work, and my DD is in North Carolina checking out Johnson & Wales University.  My son is hanging out with the guys doing whatever it is guys do when they are hanging out.  I think it usually involves eating.  Junk food.  Like Burger King.  Or Denny's.  Or Applebee's.

I used my laptop to follow the recipe and as it would have it, I just happened to check my Facebook, just in time to see that  Beth Moore was doing a live stream about prayer.  Usually I miss stuff like this because I am working - but today was a SNOW DAY!  It was just what I needed.  I am struggling with my prayer time and letting distractions get in the way.  Thank you Lord for this Divine appointment with You today.

Primary Day in New Hampshire


I love living in New Hampshire during primary season.  In the last presidential election, my daughter Megan and I decided to see every presidential candidate in person - and we did!  We heard most of them speak, and shook hands with many others.  We saw Barack Obama, John McCain, Mike Huckabee, Ron Paul, Mitt Romney, Hillary Clinton, Rudy Guiliani, John Edwards, Joe Biden, and  Dennis Kucinich, and probably a few I have forgotten.  We have photos of almost every one of them.  This year, we didn't see any candidates in person, and because we no longer have a house phone, we didn't get any of the dozens of phone calls we usually get.  I struggled to choose a candidate this year, and even as late as this morning I was still googling the candidates just to be sure.  I went to the polls and cast my vote, and so did my 20 year old son and 18 year old daughter - for the first time.  They took their vote very seriously, and I was proud of the thought they put into it.  My son registered as an independent (or undeclared) and my daughter a republican.
