Many of you have asked where in the world I've been.

All I know is that after 7 plus years of blogging and a different lappy, which I don’t like, I seem to have lost my blogging fervor.

Someday, when you least expect it, I will post again.

For those of you still waiting I say thank you.

Meanwhile, I am rather prolific on twitter. Find me: @KeethaB

One if By Land, Five if By Snow - - -


Yesterday morning, after the snow stopped and the gray clouds rolled away,

The sun shone out of a clear blue sky, giving me this view through my classroom window.

Pristine, sparkling, Indiana farm land blanketed in white.

Quite a bit of white, as you can see if you look at the base of this trash barrel. Looks like about 8 inches to me.

Look closely, my camera lens captured a few of the diamonds sparkling on top of the snow! Frost jewels.

At home all is snow quiet too. Not a track in sight. The stillness of a snow covered vista is stillness indeed.

But wait - - - - what's that I hear? Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Is it a chain saw????

Are they monsters? Are they masked gunmen? I hope there won't be a massacre tonight!!!

Oh dear, there went my pristine snow and my undisturbed stillness.

Well, they LOOK friendly, making those thumbs up signs!

Ah ha! It's just three of my Super-Students and two of their friends swooping in on their snowmobiles to say hi.

Left to right they are Erica, Evan, Tyler, Emily and Michael.

Stay tuned - - - Emily and Evan say they're coming back today to swoop ME away on one of those machines.

I'll let you know if the "old lady" survives.

What a fun group of kids you work with! Hope you have a fun day riding in the snow! Hope you'll stop by for a visit. I'm sharing chocolates today. ~ Sarah

Well if you get a little practice in then maybe my hubby will take you for a ride up the mountain at our cabin.
Me? Are you nuts? I'll be warm and cozy back in the cabin with something warm in a mug. You have a good time now. Buh bye.

I hope you got a chance to get on the snowmobile and go for a ride.

I CAN see the jeweled snow! I love how totally flat the world looks with it's been blanketed with snow. One big flat plane. Pretty cool.

Last spring I spent my first bicycle ride of the season racing snowmobilers.

Yes. Really.

I lost, but now I can't see a snowmobile without getting an almost overwhelming desire to mount my bike and ride. Good thing I resisted today: the windchill was <0º F!!!

Snow like that cripples us in the South. We just can't function if a white flake falls from the sky.

Your pictures are really pretty!

I guess you know that you wouldn't have been in school, or even near it, in South Carolina, with that much snow. I think we had a 2 hour delay for a dusting last week.

In other words, I agree with Jennifer.
