This is our fourth winter here in the west and the first winter we will be home. We have already had five small winter storms this season. I'm thinking we will have a snowy winter. We may be able to enjoy the used snowmobiles that we bought five years ago. Number one purchased some land and we decided since I had not seen it that we would come out for our twentieth anniversary. There was so much snow that we rented snow shoes and hiked in with our two little dachshunds, Hiho and Abby. We each toted a dog in our coat. It must have been a sight. We thought our winter boots were winter enough, but they didn't come close to keeping our feet from freezing, turning red and purple. We also learned the hard way about snow burns. That's when the sun glares off the snow and burns the underneath of your nose, chin and ears.
We headed to the outlet mall for real winter boots the next morning and afterwards to the care takers home and he kindly loaned us his snow mobile. We rode the snowmobile with a sexy leopard print seat to the land that we thought we would build our next home on. We had a two year plan, but God had a plan for less than a year. God also provided us with more acreage and a home already built. Praise God, His plans are always better for us. We have been here ever since.
