Good Morning!
It doesn't look at all like this right now.
It is solid light gray right to the ground.
Wednesday morning we had -30 F wind chill warnings.  It's warmed up to 21 F this morning.  Looks like this may be the warmest day till next week.  Good weather to be housebound.  ;)  Caroline comes this afternoon.  Had to change the day because of a client's funeral.
Miss Karma has still been enjoying her square of wrapping paper from the magnets.
The paper has that crinkly sound she loves, but she'd probably claim it, regardless--LOL!
Ran across this video called Writing On Water and was absolutely mesmerized!  Even if you are not crazy about pens and inks, I bet you might be fascinated, too.

I thought--I have to try this!  I watched another video where she wrote the words to a song as it played.  Awesome!  
Then this song...I cried and heart leaking out my eyes.  This is how I felt about Dagan when he was little (still do).  I had never heard the song before, but immediately knew she'd written it for her child.
I wrote poems to humanity when I was a young teen that were similar to this.  Just loved people so very much I felt like I was overflowing and wanted to comfort them all.  But I never knew the true depth and breadth of loving another human being until I shared my life with Dagan.  
And now Dagan and Leah know exactly what that feels like.  
You're okay.
You're okay.
You're okay.

Wonderful videos! And yes, it really is a special kind of love with a baby.

I watched the video of Ian eating a very healthy lunch in your last posting. He does enjoy his food, that is good to see. My grandson loves vegetables, but you couldn't say he was going to be a foodie.
It's nice to see children with good appetites.
Stay warm:)

OK, that's one very cute baby :) That's the best picture, yet. I'll watch the videos later but had to immediately respond to that beautiful shot of Ian. Have a great weekend!

It's 38 degrees. This morning it was 28. You know those temps are cold for us. Ah, the sharing of true love. It's grand. Seeing Garrison Keillor with Favorite Young Man of all people was so cool.

We had the same wind chill here. The craziest coldness I've ever felt!!!

I watched the first video, but chose to not watch the second because I cry at the drop of a hat. I don't want to do that, since I've never had a child. But Ian looks very happy, as does Karma. Hope you and she are staying warm and cozy. Ice and snow are on the way here later tonight. Not looking forward to that.
