Alabama Snow

This is not a picture of me and it certainly isn’t a picture I took. Credit goes to Robyn Henry of Hokes Bluff and you can see the original upload HERE.

But this photograph just tickles me to no end! Every time I look at it, I have to giggle! This is so true of southerners. And I love it. Personally, I think this picture should have gone national! It is just too funny.

Here in my backyard, we received close to 7″ of snow. Can you believe it? In north Alabama? This is a rarity, obviously.

Anyway, it’s been fun having to stay home. The Gent has prepared Chicken Spaghetti and we are fixin’ to feast and then watch the BCS game. I can’t believe I am about to type this, but….. War Eagle. OK, that was difficult to do for I am an Alabama fan, and Georgia fan, and never an Auburn fan but since they are representin’ the south in the BCS game, well then, I have no choice. War Eagle! There I did it again.

Something Big

Well, I’d be remiss if I didn’t post something on the first day of the year. With all the talk of New Year’s Resolutions going around Twitter, Facebook, and with my friends, it got me to thinking that I want to do something BIG this year.

But what?

One of my girlfriends has set her BIG goal as running a full marathon. Yet, another girlfriend is taking her daughter to New York City sometime this year. So these are the sort of things I’m talking about when I say I want to do something big this year. I’ve been to NYC already and I’ve run a half marathon. I’d love to go back to NYC but it just isn’t in the cards this year. And after I accomplished the half marathon, that was it, I was done with running. It’s not my cup of tea but I did enjoy the short lived victory.

This June I plan to attend a writing workshop so maybe that can constitute as my big thing? At first, I thought this may not be big enough. However, after further contemplation I believe it will be big enough after all. It may not be New York City or the physical short lived victory of having run a half marathon but it is truly big – in a different sort of way – overcoming a huge fear. Yeah, that’s big to me.
