Can you believe it? We’ve arrived at the last Tuesday of February already! We had a full moon this weekend, and luckily we had a nice clear sky to view it before the clouds rolled back in and we were inundated with rain. Again. One of our local tiny town peeps got an amazing shot of the moon:

He’s been really getting into photography, and shares his amazing shots on our town’s Facebook page. He’s getting very adept with his camera, that’s for sure! He’s not only a fabulous photographer, but he’s one of the nicest guys you’d ever meet.

That full moon was known as the “Snow Moon”, which seems appropriate since winter is apparently not over just yet – even though we’ve been teased with some gorgeous sunny days (before the incessant rain returned).

Yesterday we had every conceivable type of weather in one day. Started off with snow, accumulated about a quarter inch, then the sun came out for a while, then it started raining again, transitioned into mixed snow/rain, then stopped and the sun came out again. Then it got super windy, and dumped quarter-inch hail all over, which accumulated on the grass and vehicles, then poof! The sun came out again. It’s been crazy – Mother Nature is definitely experiencing some form of menopause.

There’s also an actual winter storm looming the next few days – and yes, there’s a possibility of snow accumulation, so we’re of course keeping an eagle eye on things around here. I don’t think it’s actually going to get cold enough for it to stick or accumulate – unless Mother Nature and Old Man Winter decide to team up again like they’ve done in the past. I’ll keep you posted!

Well, one down, one to go! Last week I went under the knife to have a pesky quarter-sized beauty mark fully excised from my abdomen. The dermatologist was excellent, and his nurse was fabulous keeping my mind off the slicing and dicing going on (since you don’t get knocked out for that).

My hernia surgery on April 5th will be a different story, so the hubby will be driving me that 74+ mile drive to and from (equal to 90 minutes without traffic, 2+ hours when traffic is terrible). I was wishing I had a chauffeur to drive me to/from last week’s fun, but at least I got lucky and the sun was shining, which makes that very long drive much more tolerable. There seems to be less crazy drivers on the road when the sun is out. Just sayin’.

The dermatologist is very confident he got all the bad ‘feet’ that could potentially become cancerous, so that’s a good thing. I don’t have to go back for a return visit for six months which makes me happy! I was joking with the doc and nurse about the fact that he had to slice me open and then stitch me up, only to have his awesome work get cut back into again in just over a month when the hernia surgery takes place right at that exact site…heh! On the flip side, there won’t be an additional scar, then, right?

Let’s usher out February with some funnies, shall we? This is valid:

  1. Heeheehee! Thanks for all the laughs.

    I’m gratified to hear your excision went well and will continue to pray the hernia surgery goes equally well and heals quickly.
