Ode to My Hair Dryer

Dear hair dryer,
what a wonderful invention you are.
Ever waiting to be picked up at a moments notice,
you dry my hair to the utmost perfection,
and you are always ready to help out in times of need.
Like yesterday and today.....
you were there... when the line that takes the dirty water
away from my dishwasher was frozen and you blew your hot air until it ran free,
you were there....when again the water spigot in the barn was frozen and you blew your hot air
until it again ran free.
Yes dear hair dryer....dear, dear hair dryer, we owe you so much.
So, from the bottom of my heart...I say thank you.

Today it is again snowing, forcast calls for 4 to 8 inches with winds of up to 40 miles an hour.  Yesterday morning, fog settled on us in the AM and left each tree and bush frosted...

Poor Muffin the Mule...with the recent addition of two horses, she is at the bottom of the "pecking order"  and is forced to most usually stand outside.  She seems to be dreaming of a green pasture...or maybe she's plotting the death of the horses

The whole frozen spigot in the barn added about an hour to morning chores.  So, on with the day...need to be in the office, do some laundry and clean the bedroom.  Just another day in paradise :)   and I am thankful for it.

1 Thessalonians 5:18 (The Message)

16-18  Be cheerful no matter what; pray all the time; thank God no matter what happens. This is the way God wants you who belong to Christ Jesus to live.

Living in His grace,
