Here we go again

I think someone has threatened the weather man in our area to make him lie and say the snow was ending yesterday at noon. He didn't mention this shit.

Yep we woke to about 6 inches of snow this morning. I got up to find the house empty and thinkin it was Friday. Then it occurred to me that it was Saturday and I was home alone. Rodger and Jason had taken off for Lexington this morning. Oh well I had my coffee and did my usual thing. Around noonish the sun popped out and the snow started to melt a lil.
The sun looked warm but that was quite deceiving. I did go out and shovel off the back deck and swept the snow off the front porch. For it to snow all the way across our porch the wind had obviously been blowing pretty good at some point. As it got later and the sun went down it got colder. Other than shoveling the deck and porch I stayed in today. I got the brainy idea to make me a big skillet of crackling corn bread. I love the stuff. And it was jus me here to eat it. I turned out soo very good, nice and brown.

I had to cut a chunk while it was still warm and add more fat to it in the form of butter. Yummy!!!
So I have been snacking on this all day. It makes me a happy camper anyway.
I had turned the TV on today to watch a lil news just in time to see the latest on the shooting of an Arizona congresswoman and the killing of a Federal Judge. So sad to see that there are people out there who are not man or woman enough to use our freedoms wisely. I am hoping this does not give some liberal goober the idea that more gun control is needed. So when I say my prayers tonight I will say a prayer for those victims and their families as I hope you will do also.
Till next time, blessings from the McGuire homestead.

Yummy. I love cornbread, but since my corn allergy seems to be getting worse, I don't eat it very often. I love having a plate of goodies that I don't have to share, don't you?

I have been reading and watching the news regarding the shooting. A 9 year old was killed! I am so mad and sad, at the same time. Our country is changing and it's not pretty!

Hey ya'll, hope ya all are stayin warm and well fed lol we are here.
I have to agree there are a lot of bad out there in the big world but I still think the good far out weight the bad. We the people should never give up hope. When you look around you in your lil world at home and all is good, think of how many more of"yous" there is out there. I just wonder if there was a poll taken across the country just what that would tell us. All we really hear is the bad things that make the news, not so much of the good lil things that have happened that would far our number the bad. JMHO
