So I've changed blog designs AGAIN! I'm allowed, right?!
Actually I had no intention of changing so soon but upon awaking this morning, I discovered Old Man Winter paid us a visit WAY TOO EARLY this year. The ground (and my deck) is covered with a blanket of frost. This made my morning treck out to the chicken coop a little more exciting and had me moving a bit slower so I didn't slip and fall.
This is definitely my least favorite time of year. I don't like the cold, I don't like the mess of snow and ice, and I truly hate driving in wintry conditions. I used to so dread winter as it would approach (and I still do to be honest) but this year I'm trying to see it as a "character stretcher". It's so easy to practice being content in all circumstances when things are rolling right along as I like them. Wintertime is my time to put the commandment of being content in all circumstances to practice.
