Missy Tippens, here. We were without power in our part of Georgia from Monday to Wednesday. So I did no cooking this week! Rather than re-share an old recipe, I thought I'd share some of the beautiful photos of our winter wonderland. It's difficult to enjoy the beauty when you're miserably cold, sitting in the dark in total silence. But once we had heat again, I could appreciate the beauty of trees tipped in sparkling crystals and the silvery woods surrounding us. So much glistening! And I'm a gal who loves sparkles and bling. :)
This first shot was taken while in line at Bojangle's trying to buy breakfast! Earlier that morning, traffic was lined up way out into the road. All the fast food restaurants that still had power were absolutely packed. When we went out to breakfast the second day (to get warm and charge our phones and computer!), the poor waitress said the day before had been terrible, and that quite a few people were really hateful to her. I know it was frustrating, but really? Why mistreat the waitress?
The rest of these photos are in our neighborhood. I wish the photos could somehow show how everything glistened, or let you hear how the icicles on the trees would make tinkling sounds in the wind.
I took these last two photos Thursday. The sun was out, and the temps had dropped into the teens. You can see the beautiful blue sky in the background.
I got behind on my writing this week. I was trying to type while wearing fingerless gloves with hand warmers (the chemical kind) inside. Maybe next week once I'm caught up on everything, I'll be able to share a real, current recipe. :)
