Weird weather in the Midwest for sure. I left for work this morning it tried to rain, then it turned to these big snowflakes, and then by noon we had sunshine with 50 degrees. You never know what to think.
This morning the snowflakes made me think of having a feather pillow fight and the feathers coming out of the pillows. It is 41 degrees at the moment. I was so ready for the weekend. It is family time with all of us together. My grandsons can't wait until Uncle John gets home. His plane should be in the air headed our way. Our daughter was going to pick him up. I offer to do it, but they think mom shouldn't be on the road that hour of the night.
Is that implying that mom is getting old??? I keep telling them that you are only as old as you feel. Some days I feel my age, but other days I don't.
My craft show got cancelled so I will be adding new items to my etsy shop as soon as I get my pictures taken. I can change my plans on what project I start next.
We are suppose to be on the cold side this weekend and back up to 62 degrees by Tuesday. We  live in an area referred to at times as tornado alley. We just pray alot and have our weather radio turned on. It does scare you if  it should happen to go off during the night.
Why do they call it a straight line wind, when a storm sneaks up on them. Even though the trees look twisted instead of the kind of a snap the wind would do. They had a new business in North Kansas City that looked interesting that I thought we would stop at when we went down to the doctors on the way home. We won't get to because it was destroyed by they say a straight wind. 
We count our blessing and say prayers for those in harms way. It makes you really wonder what Spring is going to bring us. Are you ready to Spring forward? I just wish they would change it a half hour and leave it alone. Everybody have a great weekend. Take care and be safe

Hi Shirley,
I hope this finds everyone doing well at home. I know your hubby was having issues and I have been thinking of all of with prayers and love.
Weather is whacky now for everyone and there is so much suffering too. I pray no more tornadoes, I think we have seen our share across this great country of ours.
Have a wonderful weekend and be safe and warm,

Don't you love it when the kids start telling you what you shouldn't do? Makes me want to put them in the corner!

The weather is awful as I sit here watching the news this morning. I am so sorry for all of you South of us that have to worry about twisters, etc. We are blessed to be in a relatively tornado free area. So sad for all concerned in Tornado Alley. Blessings- xo Diana
