Fayetteville, It was so cold ....

my garage door froze to the floor. I've never had that happen before. Of course it's never gotten to a minus 5 degrees either! I was late to work because I had to pry the door out of the ice. Hey, I've made to work every day this week so I'm entitled to come in late. I guess snow melted off the truck and traveled under the door where it froze. Tomorrow morning is projected to be below zero again so I placed some kitty litter under the door in the hope that it won't freeze to the floor. Fingers are crossed!

Springdale vs Fayettnam

A few weeks ago I was talking with a member of the Springdale Chamber of Commerce and a member of the Springdale City Council. They were discussing how they were going to bring in more business'and the growth potential of the city. The City Council member mentioned that they were reviewing the City's ordinances to see if any would be considered business unfriendly. I suggested that once they had completed their review and revised the ordinances that they send a copy of them to the Fayetteville City Council. They laughed and said that Fayetteville's anti-business attitude is really great for Springdale. They were projecting that Springdale will have great growth potential while Fayetteville will shoot itself in the foot.

Another Snow Storm

I woke up this morning with it raining ice. I saw that the trees and shrubs were getting a coating of ice. Boy, did I pray that it would transform to the promised snow soon. I didn't want to have falling limbs again. I did make it to work but left within a few hours after 4/5 inches had accumulated. I wanted to make sure I got home in one piece.

So, I'm home early and I should do something productive. Hmmmm, that nap was so good! I fell asleep listening to Rush and woke up to 2 cats cuddle next to me and the dog trying to push me off the sofa. It was still snowing but I went outside got the birdies some food and played with Casey for a bit. Didn't stay out long because that wind was really cold. Took a peak at the temperature. Ouch, 14 degrees. That will seem warm with this Thursday's projected low of minus 5.

The Remember Tour

So, another year has passed and we are faced to another. Like many, I have a list of projects I’d like to get done this year. A few on the list are the same recurring ones that I just never seem to accomplish.

Never Forget to Remember

In church this evening the pastor had us list what God has done or how He has work last year. Ok, I started listing some of the good things that have happen or the challenges that I’ve overcome. I’ve also realized that I’ve missed out on a lot of opportunities. Usually, at this time of the year I think about what I didn’t get accomplished. Heh, my first journal entry of the new year is usually a rant at God. I get mad and frustrated because I feel that He’s responsible for my inability to accomplish my goals. Yup, there I was pounding the table, furious with God, because every year it’s the same old things. I’d really like to know when I will see success.

Remember Forward

Yeah, I wondered what the heck that meant too. The pastor said that we remember how good, strong and faithful God has been in the past. He said we should walk with God and confidently move forward based on what we know God has done in the past. So, I will once again strive to achieve the goals I continually list each year. Maybe, just maybe I’ll actually pull it off this year. Happy New Year!
