It's snowing!

Well I had almost given up on seeing any snowflakes this winter. But this morning I woke up to the ground covered with snow. It looks so pretty. Unfortunately it comes at a time when we are all sick. We've had a nasty virus for 48 hours and it's got all of us down except for my teenage daughter. She's loading the dishwasher now..........................what a sweetheart!

Just the beginning

Well, hasn't President Obama had a busy week. Only three days in office, and he's signed an executive order to close down Gitmo, help fund abortions overseas, and has been endlessly peddling his $850 billion dollar stimulus plan. Wow, what will he do next week?

Dawn of a New Era

Today I witnessed the dawn of a new era in the U.S.A. I saw a man elected President by the media. Now I realize the American public thinks they voted for him. They pulled the lever for him, true, but the mainstream media is who formed your opinion on who to vote for.

Not true, some will say, I made up my own mind. Really? So you really don't care that our new President has no qualifications for the job, has never had one notable accomplishment, has extremely questionable business associates, and a political philosophy straight from the Communist Manifesto? You'll never hear the mainstream media talk about it. As a matter of fact, no ill word is ever spoken about Obama, including his cabinet picks. Why his pick for Secretary of Treasury, the very man who will head up the IRS, didn't pay his own taxes from 2001-2004 and hired illegal immigrants to work in his house. It's a mere glitch in the confirmation process now. Are there no rules or standards for public service?

There is only one rule I can see: Bash former President George W. Bush. Take potshots at him while giving your inaugural speech. Jump on the hate bandwagon as he leaves town by singing "Na, na, na, hey, hey, hey, good-bye." Lets blame him for the greedy wall street investors, the banking executives, who under penalty of fines from the Clinton Administration made bad loans to irresponsible homeowners. Let's forget 9/11/2001 when he was a strong leader who let terrorists, and the countries that harbor them, know that the U.S. will not tolerate it.

Oh, fancy talk, President Obama, "It's time to pick ourselves up, and dust ourselves off." What a crock. Do you really think it's been pure luck that every attempt of terrorism on U.S. soil has been foiled. Do you really think that sitting down with rogue governments with no preconditions is going to spread the love? Do you understand that the largest threat to the U.S. at this very moment is security? Do you think community activism, and sharing the wealth made this country great?

Today, I agree history was made. A great public servant was booed out of office, and a leader with socialist ideals, with the backing of the lunatic left, and the love of an America who has forgotten how to think for themselves took the oath of office. I don't care what color his skin is.

Not a candle person

So many people love candles. Most of the time when I get a gift from someone at church, it's a candle of some kind. I don't really burn candles. I'm always afraid I'll forget about it and burn the house down. For years I was paranoid with my teenage daughters as they would go in their rooms, lock the door and light candles. I just knew it would start a fire. So, I'm not a candle person.

However, I'm married to one. Every night he lights every candle he can find. Remember all those gifts I mentioned? Just so you don't think he's a romantic and I'm not, he read somewhere that a candle helps heat a room. Yes, I'm married to a frugal man, and there's nothing wrong with that. But, I'm in the livingroom and I smell cranberries, cinnamon, apple pie, and lemons. The kitchen is full of vanilla, pine trees, and mulberries. These smells all mixed up just make me nauseous. I'll blow them out and when I walk in the rooms again, they are all magically lit up again. Oh well....
