Catch the Moment: Week Seven

Ugh. February. February is quite literally my least favorite month of the year. Every other month of the year I'm cool with, but I have never liked February. I always get a case of the mid-Winter blues in February. I've been feeling a little down, anxious and pent-up lately, and I think it's showing in my attitude about a lot of things, like this project for example. I contemplated quitting this week. I mean why not? The whole world is cold and gray and six weeks is longer than I've ever lasted before. I wanted to quit but I didn't. So here's to keepin' on even when you want to quit and looking forward to Spring and sunshine. They're just around the corner, y'all.  

I'm linking up with Mindi from Simply Stavish, Stephanie from Behind the Camera and Dreaming and Carrie from My Life, Our Journey and the rest of the Catch the Moment Crew! If you want to join in, let me know. There is a fantastic Facebook group full of supportive women!

Pretty lines and perspective hanging on my breakfast nook wall.

Christmas was over almost two months ago and I've still got these guys from my garland hanging around. I really don't like this photo. It's super grainy. I need to work on my ISO setting.

Happy Valentine's Day flowers from Christopher. We don't really do Valentine's Day for each other, but I was so happy for this little taste of Spring! Plus, tulips are my favorite flower!

Preparing for Winter Storm Octavia. When snow and/or ice is predicted all Southerners must report to their nearest grocery store and buy bread, eggs, water and milk. Don't ask me why. I don't know. Actually, I do know. It goes back to the great ice storm of 1994. I'm sure it was stressful for the adults, but I just remember camping in my living room with my parents and having a ton of fun with my friends. Severe weather is much different as an adult and a parent!

Well the storm came and dumped a ton of ice and freezing rain on us. Our neighbors to the north got snow. Not us though, just gross ice. Our garden flag was frozen like this.

"Snow" Day part two. I made bacon, eggs and biscuits for breakfast. Evie remembered the heart shaped donuts from Valentine's Day and requested heart shaped biscuits. I couldn't tell that sweet face no. If heart shaped biscuits make my big girl happy, then heart shaped biscuits it is!

Before I went to bed on Tuesday I checked the weather and to my dismay it said we were supposed to get snow over night. No. No. No. For maybe the first time in my life my I prayed for it NOT to snow. Much like when I pray that it will snow, my prayers were not answered in the way that I hoped. 

It's been so cold and yucky that it wasn't even hard to pick my favorite photo this week. Hands down the flowers from Chris win. The man sent me Springtime in the middle of Winter. Just looking at my flowers and that photo cheers me up! 

What photo was your favorite this week! I hope the rest of you who got blasted by Octavia and Neptune stayed as safe and warm as possible!
