Sunny Snow Day

We had a sunny day on Wednesday. It was a good day to venture out and enjoy some vitamin D! Temperatures were going to reach 40 degrees on this day which was a treat from the below freezing temps we’ve been experiencing. Our daughter in law sent us the photo above via text on Wednesday.

After working in the shop and running some errands we decided to drive to Chewelah which is 27.5 miles south of us. A beautiful day for the drive and worth the gas and time to get to our favorite Mexican Restaurant this side of the Cascade mountain range. It’s been three and a half months since we were able to sit down and enjoy a meal here. Some restrictions were lifted as of Monday and they could open at 25% capacity. We gave our favorite server a hug and had our own mini celebration.

Do you have a favorite restaurant that you miss being able to enjoy a meal in?

We are supposed to get another inch or two of snow Thursday evening into Friday morning here.

  1. As I was reading your post and enjoying your pictures, the sun started shining brighter in my window. We’ve had lots of snow and grey skies and it is so nice to see the sun. We’ve been able to eat out with some restrictions for awhile now and we enjoy it when we do it. However, mostly we still just order and pick-up most of the time. Occasionally we eat in.

    Stay safe and have a great weekend.

  2. I live in Plano, Tx where we have seen more than our share of the winter storm, but God has been so faithful to bless and protect us. The sun is shining brightly today and before we know it, the snow will be a memory. What kind of memory will be determined by what affect it had on us. For many here, it will be a long, perhaps a year’s struggle of putting their homes and lives back together. For others it will be a difficult time of trying to pay for utility bills. Regardless, God is still in control.

    • It really has been sad to read about our friends in Texas and how the rolling blackouts and freezing storm has affected them. We text back and forth with our brother’s family in Dallas checking in on them. God is always in control and we remind ourselves daily. Glad you have been blessed and protected!

  3. I don’t remember the last time the temperature went above freezing. Love those sunny snowy days – very rare lately.
    Our favorite place to eat is Brenda’s. They have been open but we are just not ready to go out and eat yet.

  4. Sunny, snowy days are the best! We have been in a deep freeze here for so long it seems. Things have opened up a bit here but we are still doing take out at this point. Have a great weekend!

  5. The grandchildren look very happy with the snow. Ours were thrilled and played in it for as long as it lasted. Glad you could go out and enjoy your meal on that sunny day!

  6. Glad you’re having sunshine after the cold. We too are enjoying warmer, sunny days after -20’sC. last week. Your grandkids look real warm and cozy in the snow.

  7. Hi Ellen, This is Mildred from Georgia. I am caring for my husband and not back to blogging yet but I am enjoying catching up with you this afternoon. Your grands are precious and growing! Mexican is my. Favorite cuisine. So happy you enjoyed the trip and the meal.

  8. Good for you guys! We’ve had a few beautiful 40 degree sunny weather too! It feels like spring. I’m happy for you to be able to go out to eat! Tom and I haven’t been in over a year! We do take out though. That’s our choice as our favorite restaurants are packed ( or seem it to us) so we will wait until we get our vaccinations! Crazy times, aren’t they? Other than covid life is good here!💗😻😍🙏
