It only snowed 3-4 inches where we live, but that was enough to close Taylor's office downtown! Last night thousands of people were trapped on the freeway for over 6 hours. Seattle has maybe 2 or 3 snowplows, so the city pretty much shuts down.
We spent the day "snowed in" - although Taylor still worked... in his pajamas.
I walked to the market to get some Thanksgiving necessities, only to find that a 70-something couple had cross-country skiied to the grocery store. They were wandering around the Metropolitan Market with their skis and poles in their cart!
"Mas'r, if you was sick, or in trouble, or dying, and I could save ye, I'd give ye my heart's blood; and if taking every drop of blood in this poor old body would save your precious soul, I'd give 'em freely, as the Lord gave his for me." (p.407)
I finished Uncle Tom's Cabin last night. It's beautiful, and not at all what I was expecting from an abolitionist novel. A close friend of mine once told me that reading this book changed her Dad's life. It definitely has changed the way I see certain things, and really made me think a lot more about Christ and His example (again, not what I was expecting from an abolitionist novel).
Have you ever read a book that made you gasp, laugh, and cry out loud while reading it?
So glad we caught the tail end of a gorgeous East Coast Fall!
We flew out for my cousin Ann's wedding. I ended up being the florist (yikes). It was an interesting experience figuring out how to order flowers on the other side of the country. I was so grateful to have my mom and sister Liz there to help (and a cousin with flawless taste!).
"When I speak of home, I speak of the place where --in default of a better-- those I love are gathered together; and if that place were a gypsy's tent, or a barn, I should call it by the same good name notwithstanding." - charles dickens -
