Well. the weatherman was right. We did indeed receive the promised 3-5 inches of snow last night. It does make for a very pretty sight outside my window this morning, but, unfortunately, also meant that the roads and parking lots are once again treacherous and we cancelled church again this morning.
I can’t remember the last time the weather was so bad that church was cancelled two weeks in a row. Perhaps never! I’m really disappointed this morning because my new son-in-law-to-be installed our new sound system this week and I was itching to get my hands on it this morning. Rats!!!! Now I have to wait another week to crank up that lovely 900 watts of power and play with the new wireless microphones. Well, I guess patience is still a virtue I need to work on.
Yesterday we hosted that young man’s parents and grandparents for lunch and a visit. It was our first meeting and I think it went well. It was their first trip to our particular Small Town, USA, and they seemed to like our little piece of the world. His little sister was also here. She is about 10 and quite adorable. It’s obvious how much she loves her big brother! We didn’t swap embarassing stories at the kids’ expense yesterday, although it was very tempting! Plenty of time to do that later…
I just whipped up a batch of butterhorn rolls and set those to rise. Something about the smell of homemade bread on a snowy day that is just too perfect for mere words.
