Dreaming of Spring!

Why the picture of wild violets, when 2 - 4 ins. of snow is predicted during the night/early morning ?  Just to remind myself  that Spring will be here before long - I hope.......
I feel sure many of you in the land of blog are saying "couple inches of snow - what is the big deal"?  Around here, that small amount sends many into a tail spin, and in a panic to get to the store for that "gotta have loaf of bread, milk and other necessities such as junk food, etc.".  Of course being Christmas night, that may really send some into a panic mode, as most places closed early today, so hopefully most will have enough holiday treats to tied them over.  :-D  Christmas decor still out and here I am looking forward to Spring and warmer temps.

Hard to believe in a few more days, we will be starting a new year.  As I said long ago - I don't make resolutions!     However, in the upcoming year I hope to get more accomplished, and start thinking about future plans.  If you read along much, you know I am always mentioning the infamous "L" word.  Well - One of my goals is to redo those "L's", make my priorities and get more done, than to just "think/talk" about what I need/want to do.  Hopefully, I will get certain things accomplished to a point, where I can get some much needed repairs/updates done next Spring.  Of course I would get more accomplished if I spent less time on the computer, but then I would miss surfing around the land of blog and seeing what all the creative/talented bloggers have been up to lately.   Sigh - Decisions, decisions !

My main family get together is still to come due to other schedules and travel times.
Hope everyone has been enjoying the Holidays

ETA:  12/26/12 -  Did not get the 2 to 4 inches predicted - just a heavy dusting, which is fine with me...

 Picture I took last Winter, but if I took one of the same spot this morning, it would be almost identical. To cold to go out and take one this morning as it is 30 degrees (feels like 20) as I type this update.

Thanks for the pretty spring picture. Hope you can get out and about soon. Been watching the weather and I know it's been awful all over your part of the country. Hope you have a wonderful family celebration. Might just be a little less hectic after Christmas.

Glenda, we are in the midst of a full blown winter storm. Just came in from doing the driveway with the snow blower. Must be 6 inches minimum so far and we're anticipating another 4-6 inches. What a change from last year when I never broke out the shovel! LOL Stay safe with your crazy drivers who MUST get out for the necessities if it DOES start snowing again. :-) Sue

Glad to hear you didn't get one of the bad storms I was hearing about! I hope you have a wonderful celebration whenever that may be and best wishes for a very happy 2013, Glenda!

Oh sweetie, we have about 8" of snow. Sure is a pretty sight. Thank goodness they do a great job of clearing the roads. Didn't wander out today, but hubby and I went and saw the Hobbit yesterday. I am a mental resolution maker. But, really I continually make mental goals all year long. Just helps to keep me motivated. Have a wonderful New Year!

I wish you many blessings and lots of happiness in the New Year!
