Well, after a long conversation with Hunkahubby, and some tips from other bloggers and how they handle this sort of thing; I've finally determined that I can now include photos of my family on this blog!!! So - beware, I have a lot of catching up to do and thousands of pictures to do it with.
I will never use real names on this blog (well, except for the cats, and other people who have blogs of their own and use their own names) - and those of you who know me beyond cyberspace will know who we are anyway! If one of my readers accidentally uses someone's real name when they comment on my blog - I'll delete the comment, but I won't be mad atcha! :-)
So - for the first time on Not of this World I would like to introduce you to the cast of characters in the story of my life:
And even though I've talked about my cats before, I thought it was important that they were included again here in the cast of characters.
So there you have it . . . stay tuned for more of our adventures in FULL COLOR!
Then, we had an ice storm.
I thought I'd add a few more pictures of that from our house.

Then, yesterday, parts of Indiana had a major snow storm. We only got about 5 inches, but my family's area got between 9 and 12! I wanted to share some pictures of what I HOPE is the last snow of the season . . . (but knowing Indiana, it will snow in July out of no where . . .)
These pictures are from cousin's house and my Dad's house (they live in the same neighborhood.) Oh - and my Dad's birthday was yesterday too. So he got a lot of snow for his present!! Happy Birthday Dad!

And here is a picture from our house when the snow was at its heaviest, it was quite beautiful to watch.
But now . . . I'm ready for the sunshine!!!
What's your weather like this morning??

Grandma had one of her mother’s oil lamps as well as a couple belonging to grandpa’s family in the west room built in glass front cabinet. In this cabinet Grandma kept many treasures such as: Halloween decorations, her parents school slates, some of their old school books, an old crock with numerous odds and ends that were found about the house, cookbooks and all sorts of different items that intrigue a young boy with a curious mind. The lamps were kept on the top shelf with the chimneys waiting to be placed back on the brass burner for their next use. The top shelf wasn’t tall enough for the chimneys to be stored on the lamps, but they were always ready for use when the time would arise.
However, Weight Watchers now has an entirely ONLINE program, which is right up my alley. I loved taking classes online - so I decided to check it out. And as you can see by the subject of this post, IT'S WORKING!
To lose weight, you really have to get into the mindset that it is a LIFESTYLE CHANGE, not a diet. WW gives you the tools to make it a lifestyle change - and it really isn't hard. It is flexible enough that you can still live your normal life and eat well too.
My biggest wakeup call was when I typed in the food I might normally eat in a day, tallied it up, and realized it was over 3-4 times more POINTS® than I should have been eating! Wow. Now that I know what to look for, it is easier to make better choices - and still not be hungry!
AND THE BEST PART - I can still have chocolate. :-)

Some areas were hit pretty badly. It wasn't too awful where I live, but where most of my family lives was hit pretty hard. There were power outages and school closings in many places.
BUT - even though I am REALLY ready for spring, there is something really beautiful about an ice storm.

Don't you agree?

THAT is a bad case of road rage. The woman is injured, but alive, thanks to some good Samaritans.

So tell me - what is your favorite season and why?
