South Mississippi has had its share of cold weather this year! But I can happily say that I'm glad that we experienced a beautiful snowfall before winter was over. On Valentine's weekend there was a Scrapbooking Crop in Madison, MS. Our plans were to leave on Friday, the 12th, but the forecast kept saying "snow" and a lot of it! With common sense in hand, we loaded our camper a day earlier and headed north. What a great decision!! Once we got settled in, we were prepared for the weather. The bad part of it all is that I had to leave at lunch on Friday to go to the Crop. The only good thing about that was it had quit snowing around lunch. Having no wind made it easy to be outside without a coat. It was really comfortable. The only trouble we had was walking. During the night, the snow had frozen and had become icy in some areas...like our camper steps!! It was sooo dangerous and difficult to go up or down them. You really had to pay attention to each step you made. It was the same way around the truck. Our feet got "wet" from the snow and made them quite cold. As you can see, we had wonderful, beautiful snow! Hope you enjoy the slide. It was a gorgeous day!

Blogging Without Obligation
After coming across what seemed to be the 4000th or so post on someone’s blog starting with “I’m sorry I haven’t posted in awhile.” I decided it is time to rethink what makes a good blog and the expectations that have come to be part of it. I am thinking that no one should utter those words again . . .and with that thought I give you Blogging Without Obligation. •Because you shouldn’t have to look at your blog like it is a treadmill. •Because its okay to just say what you have to say. If that makes for a long post, fine. Short post, fine. Frequent post, fine. Infrequent post, fine. •Because its okay to not always be enthralled with the sound of your own typing. •Because sometimes less is more. •Because only blogging when you feel truly inspired keeps up the integrity of your blog. •Because they are probably not going to inscribe your stat, link and comment numbers on your tombstone. •Because for most of us blogging is just a hobby. A way to express yourself and connect with others. You should not have to apologize for lapses in posts. Just take a step back and enjoy life, not everything you do has to be “bloggable”. •Because if you blog without obligation you will naturally keep your blog around longer, because it won’t be a chore. Plus, just think you will be doing your part to eradicate post pollution. One post at a time. . .
