my escape

the ocean has become my escape. I may have to go visit it again one day soon, even if I have to do it all by myself.  

snow or rain?

last week they were saying we were in for a snow storm on Tuesday here in Iowa. Now I hear it will all be rain. Which will make me thrilled beyond words if all we get it rain. True it won’t make things as green as what is in the above picture……but every day is…
