Well, Well, Well

Remember the weather forecast on last night’s blog—woke to about 8 inches of snow and by the time it stopped snowing we had 12 inches of new snow on the ground—so Al I really don’t think you can complain about a measly little 4 or 5 inches!  It looked like winter instead of spring around here this morning.  Just before lunch time the sun came out!!  We now have rivers of melting snow along with a sea of mud!

Michael plowed snow and friends dropped off quilts for quilting.  Gay brought me the most cheerful, bright little quilt for longarming—it will make me smile! 

After lunch I tackled a task I have been putting off all winter.  Michael gave me an IPod Touch for Christmas—I wanted to download library audiobooks (free) and listen to them on the IPod while quilting.  While in Arizona and using the Verizon aircard with its 5GB cap I didn’t dare download anything—when I downloaded ITunes, it put us close to halfway on our 5GB limit and we were not even halfway through the month. 

Today was the day—I got started just after lunch and finally was listening to an audiobook at 6pm!!!!  What a complicated process Apple!!!!  Do you think you could have made it more complicated Mr. Jobs????  The next time it won’t be so hard but I sure struggled this afternoon although I never lost my temper which is rare when I am dealing with computer issues!  Now, I just have to learn how to download music, too.

OH, my—has anyone read ' target=_blank>Heaven Is For Real???  I noticed the little book in Costco yesterday, read the back and decided this might be the book I needed to read right now.  I read it last night—the whole thing, now I am going to go back and re-read the book.  The book is a true story—a not quite 4 year old has emergency surgery and ends up in heaven sitting in the lap of Jesus.  When the little boy comes out of surgery and begins to recover he tells his parents things that he couldn’t have known otherwise unless he truly was in heaven.  I loved the book and got such comfort from it.

IMG_6767 “I know it’s in here somewhere, I just know it is!!!”  Michael would throw a snowball and Emmi would chase it then bury her head in all that snow looking for the “ball.”

A good day in the life of the Clark’s!


  1. All I can say is that I am definitely taking your area off my list of possible retirement places-12 inches in late April!

  2. I really hate snow but boy is it pretty in your pictures. And Emmi is beyond cute. Especially the headless dog one.

    They interviewed that little boy on TV a couple of weeks ago. When he talked about his grandfather it was so neat. Just confirms my beliefs in an eternal life.

  3. great snow shots, Janna!..too bad it is April!!..way to be positive the shots of Emmi!!

  4. It really looks like Christmas in your neck of the woods. Should all melt away quickly though at this time of the year.
    I have an iPod touch too but I don't use it for audiobooks. The
    Touch is too selective in what type of audiobook you can download to it. I bought a Sansa clip 4 GB. I have seen those for $ 29.99 and the transfer of library books is super easy and there are a lot more one can download to that than to the iPod. Something to think about.

  5. PS. I just ordered the book from our library as an audiobook. I am no. 33 on the hold list.

  6. I didn't know CUTE could be out-cuted. Bet Emmy gave you a few giggles over this!


  7. Janna, I love all the photos.
    I also have read the book "Heaven is for Real" The little boys grandmother, and his great grandfather that he met in Heaven are from the same town that Mac & I grew up in so it was doubly special for me.
    Take care...

  8. OH the poor robin!

    Reminds me of one spring here with a late snow, a robin was trying to eat the last few shrivelled berries on a bush here. I took a slice of baloney, cut it into long *worms* and scattered them by the bush. He found them and thought he hit the jackpot! Soon he called his other robin friends to eat on the feast. I cut up baloney for three days for them till the snow melted and they could find worms again!!!
