Good Thursday Mornin' Yall,
It's a bitterly cold mornin' here this mornin'. It is currently 16 degrees and I think the winds are calm and we have no windchill. Of course, that could change. It was a bitterly cold day yesterday as well. The high only made it up to around 30 degrees here. Even tho the Sun was shinging, it was still very cold. I think today it's suppose to be up to around 35 degrees. They say by the weekend, it will be up into the 60's and may have some rain as well. Hey, remember, this is Arkansas, and we never know about our weather here. LOL.
Today, our girls will be starting back to school. I have no idea why the school decided to go back late in the week like this. I think most schools are starting back this coming Monday. Anyway, it may take them a few days to get back into the swing of things again. The girls have been used to staying up way past midnight and then sleeping late. Maybe by this coming Monday they will be back on track.
Hubby had his first day of orientation yesterday. He had to do the Physical again as part of the orientation process. They only gave him a year's certification because he had some blood in his urine. In the past, he would be certified for 2 years. He may have a bladder infection or something. Please keep him in your prayers that this will clear up. The company put DH and his Uncle up in a Hotel there last night. They still have some more orientation to do today. DH did say that since they had driven for them before, that they was going to try and get them in a truck later today and have them a load ready to go. They will have to leave out either late this afternoon or in the morning. They won't be back home till probably sometime next weekend. This will be a big adjustment for our Family. I also ask that you will keep us all in your prayers on adjusting to this new job and DH not being home as much as he had been.
I have another Giveaway to tell you about. You may remember me posting about a week or so ago about Jo@Neereandearcreations having a Giveaway on some paintings....cards....or pillow that she does. Well this time, Jo is having a "Second Chance" Giveaway on the same items in Honor of her 50th Post.

Yall be sure to go over and visit Jo@Neereandearcreations and choose from the beautiful samples she has over there. Trust me, she does some beautiful work.
I was going to do a "THANKFUL THURSDAY", but I'm not sure who is hosting it this week. I was looking at some previous blogs and there has been some changes on who is Hosting it now. Maybe I can find out before next Thursday and do one then.
I am having my second cup of coffee this morning. I had my alarm set to go off at 4:45a.m., but I woke up on my own around 3:30a.m. I layed there in bed trying to go back to sleep but I couldn't. So, I got on up and started my coffee. This coffee taste's especially good this morning since it is bitterly cold.
I guess I will go for now. I will go see who is up and if they aren't, well, I'm going to knock on their door to see if they want to have coffee with me. LOL. Take care my friends and have a great Thursday. May God Bless Each and Everyone of you. If you have to get out, be sure to dress warm. This cold snap has gone all the way down to Florida as well. I heard on the news last night that this cold snap may cause some damage to the Florida Orange Crop.
I also wanted to let you know that my friend, Amanda@JacarandaCottage had awarded me with the "I <3 href="mailto:Amanda@JacarandaCottage">Amanda@JacarandaCottage, please go by and pay her a visit. She always has some beautiful pictures of Beautiful Australia to share. "THANKS" again Amanda for this Award. I will be giving out this Award in a few days.
LOVE & HUGS,
