winding down


Well it is Sunday afternoon...I am waiting for the group on grounds to go home, (not that I am pushing them out or anything) So while I wait, I decided to try out this whole blog thing. This would be the second time I have tried something like this...i didn't keep up with the last one (my bad) but maybe I can do it this time...do you have faith in me? Anyways, like I said...it is pretty quite around here. As most people would be desperately trying to get the most out of their last day off before jumping into the new week...I am just winding down from mine. Actually, if I remember correctly tomorrow is a holiday...so I guess most people have one more day of relaxing and/or accomplishing tasks around the house. Either way, tomorrow is my day of comotose. I am always exhuasted after a weekend of hosting. Exhuasted in a good way though.
This weekend we had 2 groups on grounds. One was a college group and the other was a high school group. It has been absolutely figid this weekend. The coldest it has been all winter. The only upside to this is the snow we made earlier this week is not going to go anywhere. It is kinda funny to look around outside and see all brown and gloom until your eyes come upon the tube hill...then you are struck by white!! I am not a fan of the cold...but I DO love the snow...ecspecially when it sticks to the trees :)
Oh, well...it will be spring before we know it :) By the way...if you are looking for something to do...and you like movies...i highly recomend Hoodwinked!! I just saw it last Wednesday...very clever. My favorite character had to be the squirl...watch it and you'll understand why :) Well I should sing off for now...Have a SPECTACULAR day! :P

I love your blog! I too am tired of the cold, but love to see the snow. I spent the weekend (not this past one, but the one before) up at Timber-lee and it snowed really hard on Saturday. It was gorgeous - all of the pine trees were bending under the weight of the snow. WOW! I particularly didn't like the cold this weekend because all of the pipes under my mobile home froze solid and I had to spend the weekend at Mary's. Tough job, but someone had to do it. I'm working today - I'm not one of those lucky ones who have the day off. Heard a great message at church yesterday. Plus, I think I will be the speaker at the Women's Easter Brunch here at Pleasant Hill Church. I'll let you know - would love to have you come. Well, back to the salt mine.
Love, Grandma Gwen

hey Sarah! Blogging is fun. I should try it sometime. We have snow here too and we have had snow for the past 3 weekends in a row which is cool but it always melts in a day or two cause its not that cold around here. I love my new job by the way. Its almost my dream job. Oh and I really loved your quote at the bottom. I just finished reading that book! and I loved it! I highly reccomend it to anyone.

Sarah Felice~~

Well what can I say..........I love you!!! I would disagree with a specific issue you wrote about. Snow....it's been nice not having it......you don't have to drive in it like I do, so I am glad it's not on the ground, or more say on the roads..... however, I will agree that -5 or more was way too cold this weekend.......I am ready for spring!!! Anyway, nice blog, I have faith in you Sarah!!!!

Love ya!!!!!
