Greetings from Oklahoma.

IHubby and I left this past Tuesday headed to Stillwater, Oklahoma, where our daughter, husband and our Grandson live. We had to take an alternate route because our usual route through Little Rock was covered in snow and a travel advisory was issued. So, we had different scenery on this trip and it was quite enjoyable and we had a beautiful day of travel.

Oklahoma has been hit rather hard this winter with the "white stuff" and we were hopeful that we would not get involved in any while we were here. Well, how funny, but our home town in North Louisiana is getting heavy snow today and it is shutting down schools and businesses left and right. We cannot believe it. But, just between you and me, Hubby and I are really quite glad to be missing it. We're not fans of snow and it should be long gone by the time we get home next Tuesday.

We have been keeping our 16 month old Grandson since arriving and he and has entertained his Poppa and CiCi royally. He's such a happy little boy and has developed the cutest little deep laugh since we last saw him at Christmas. It is so amazing how quickly they change in just 6 weeks.

We decided to get out this morning and we did a little shopping and then took him out to lunch. He behaved so nicely and when we got home he was definitely ready for a nap and we were too. ~smile~

It is cloudy and cold here, but there's no rain or snow, so we're not complaining. I have a big pot of chili cooking on the stove , so it looks and smells like winter here.

It's a bit hard to believe that Valentine's Day is this Sunday, just doesn't seem that much time of the New Year should have already gone by. It was 44 years ago that Hubby took me to my first Sweetheart Banquet and then almost 38 years ago took me to be his wife. Good grief, that sounds like a r-e-a-l-l-y long time ago. God blessed me with a special man that has continued to love me all these years, been a wonderful Father to our two children and now a fabulous Poppa to our two Grandchildren. Valentine's Day just gives us another opportunity to celebrate our love.

I wish for all my Company Girl friends a wonderful week-end and a Happy Hearts Day! For more Company Girl talk check out http://www.homesantuary.com/rachelanne/

  1. I'm glad you got where you were going without incident, even if you did have to take the scenic route to get there. Here in Texas we are loving the snow and trying to get every bit of enjoyment out of it we can. The rest will probably melt off tomorrow, but that's life. Hope you are having a great visit.

  2. Glad you just missed the snow. It's fun from time to time, but I can't live where there's snow. I'm cold even when the sun is out. Enjoy that time with the grandchildren, they will remember it and love you for it.

  3. It sounds like you have abundant joy and gratitude for the blessings you've been given. It's so good to spend quality time with family. We were in Oklahoma ourselves last month doing just that. =)
