Happy Wednesday!

Have Bright WednesdayHappy Wednesday Everyone! 

It’s been a little rough getting back into the swing of things after being sick and taking a trip immediately afterwards.   The road trip was an unexpected venture and our trip down to GA was quite fun, however, the trip back home was a little scary at times.

We went through Indiana and Kentucky, during the blizzard and I have to tell you, cities and states that are not use to having snow are so very unprepared for it.  These states literally closed down waiting the storm out, at which time they would go out and try to remove the accumulated snow. 

The highways were full of snow about 3-5 inches deep and there were so many cars that had swerved off the road and into ditches.  There were also many trucks that jack-knifed and laid slanted or on its side on the highway as well.  There was a point during our trip back where we sat for forty-five minutes until tow trucks came to remove stalled cars off the road so drivers could get through.  What an adventure!

It’s great to be home and even greater to find out that IL wasn’t hit by the blizzard.  Were any of you affected by the blizzard?  Did you take pics?  If so, send me some pics to share here at purplesilkykisses@gmail.com.  Here are a couple of pics I took on the way back from GA.

Here’s wishing you all a wonderful Wednesday!  Until tomorrow-Lois


Enjoy Your Sunday!!!

Keep Calm its SundayGood Morning and Happy Sunday,

How was your Christmas?  Did you get everything you wanted?  Better yet, for those of you who have kids, did the children have a great holiday? I hope you and your family members had a great day!  After all the holidays are all about getting together with family members, and enjoying each other’s company.

The wife and I spent the day at my in-laws which was great fun!  So much good food, and OMG the desserts.  Needless to say my diet took a sharp nose-dive.  How could anyone pass up a kitchen full of food in which the aroma hit you in the face as soon as you walked inside the house.  And for dessert a long table filled with nothing  but a variety of cakes and pies. Yum!  I so went into a food comma.  🙂

Yum, yum and yum!  I  now understand  the reason why most people wait until the holidays are over to begin their diets. It would appear that Jo and I will be jumping on that band wagon as well.

Well the wife and I have loads to do today so here’s wishing you all a great day!


Happy Saturday to Ya!
