Back in the Virginia Mountains

I drove back to VA yesterday ~ traffic wasn't too bad and I enjoyed the warmth of the sun shining through my windows all the way. I fear that is the only warmth I am going to feel for a while. It is really COLD!! And word has it that another storm is on the way. I think everyone is getting a little weary of snowstorms. There are people suffering with no heat in many parts of the country. It would be nice if Mother Nature would begin her Spring preparations a little early this year.
It is good to be back and I am eager to get back to daily blogging and catching up with all of you. I have piles of work and mail on my desk, and laundry to do today. I do have many photos to share with you. I took this one at the beach the day the starfish came ashore. So, once I get the necessities out of the way, I'll be back to post some pictures.
Have a great day! Stay safe and stay warm!

I'm so sorry that I insulted you in my last comment, asking about the starfish. If I had thought first I would have fully realized that with the little bit that I know of you, you would be knowledgeable enough and compassionate enough not to be unwittingly killing the star fish. I apologize.:-(

Oh my goodness, Jan, you did not insult me at all. I thought it was funny the way that you stated it, saying "what was I thinking?". Absolutely no apology necessary at all. Now I feel bad that you thought I was insulted. We could keep going back and forth on this.... lol, but we don't need to. I am not upset at all, Jan.
I am always happy to read your comments.

Linda,
I like your "ovidemi" statement. I need to get back to your place and see what words I get. (:
You are right - I hate both packing FOR the trip and unpacking AFTER!!

Thank goodness! It's one thing to insult an old friend but quite another to insult a new one! Not that I go around insulting my old friends either, I hope not....Okay, 'nuff said.

Lucky you left Charleston when you did for they are going to get some winter weather... Could snow there. Seems like it has snowed everywhere this winter.......

Hi Audrey - what a beautiful picture. It makes me miss the beach! Well, maybe that and the fact that it is COLD outside. :) I'm glad you're back. Do what I do, and leave everything in your suitcase for a couple of weeks - haha! Hope you had a great Valentine's Day! xox
