Sounds like I might not have time to design a blog pleasing to your eyes, sweetly fragrant to your nose, drops of wine on your lips, blankkie-snuggly to your touch, and a joyfully chanted tune in your ears BUT I can be on here long enough to say – IT IS TRUE, WE ARE ALL UNDER THE WEATHER AROUND OKLAHOMA LAND. But we are fully capable of functioning peacefully and snuggly if the electricity goes out! Just move frozen goods into the garage. Good to go.

They say it will be worse in the morning with two more days of snow – then we begin to uncover our igloos of snow. 😀

Just wanted you to know I am fully capable of producing all that “word” wonder I described in my first sentence. (in my dreams) Just don’t have time, you know, before the electricity might go bye-bye and leave all that “Emily Dickenson” beauty in the sky. What a loss that would be; I just can’t take the chance…..

We are being warned to be alert to the possibility that we might lose electricity.

Seriously I wanted to tell you I am doing pretty well. No new “yuckies” for several days. The Lord is good to me! I’m rejoicing over a few family victories. For you Christian friends who have been praying for revival – I got a call last night from my millennial. She was sharing a wonderful experience with a new church she is attending because of covid problems in her regular church. She was so excited about seeing things that she was sure she had heard me talk about in days of revival-past. Some of the glories that made me so “churchy.”


About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

    Half of Houston’s without power, and almost all of Galveston, Austin, etc. But so far so good for me. I made chili last night, and I’m going to heat some up shortly — just in case my power does go off! Stay warm. This too shall pass!

      We are among the lucky ones. Still reaping the benefits of the past ages. Your chili sounds good – like ReeNee’s chili does for us. She made it yesterday also. Enjoy the time out.

  2. Hunker down my friend and stay warm!!!!

    I’m getting reports from TX and AR are out of power. My kids are tough! They know how to do this. We won’t talk about my neighborhood until after you dig yourselves out! =-> Praying for your safety and well being!

      One more day nearly past. That will be one down and six to go for this week. The big KO is just ahead. Smiling at you. Okla. Gas and Electric still doing pretty well. Think of those guys on those pole tops. And the mockers in the skyscraper. I’ll take my rednecks. Notice I’m not knocking all the people in the skyscraper – just the mockers.

    HI From across the seas. Wish we could transport some of our heat through a blog. My biggest problem has been making sure my heart kept pumping. So hot some days even for summer I felt like staying under the paddling pool water and limiting breathing. Thank GOD we Know the ONE Who is with us. Stay warm. Take care!

    • oneta hayes says:

      I like thinking about meeting you in Heaven but I’m in no hurry. Don’t take off before I do! An exciting thought for those of us now ready, just come get us all at the same time, Jesus our returning King. Hadn’t thought of you in the heat! Right now it sounds good.

  5. Awesome! We’ve been seeing signs of revival where I am. Our church baptized eleven people a couple of weeks ago, and yesterday they welcomed forty new members!

    • oneta hayes says:

      WOW! That’s Great Good News! Praise God for all the blessings that can flow even, in spite of, or because of Covid. It is an instrument in the hand of God as it turns minds to the need of eternal life or drives a wedge into the souls of the obstinate.

    Julie and I were concerned about you since we haven’t seen much of you lately. I know you had a UTI and hope you’re all better now. We e been pretty healthy and I’m growing rather fond of staying at home. Stay warm. We’ve had two weeks below zero and worry about pies freezing.

    • oneta hayes says:

      Staying at home has become more comfortable than going out for sure. But I have to make an exception to that because of my hunger to go to a church fellowship somewhere. It has been rather difficult for me since January 29. But I’m improving. Thankfully I don’t have any pies to freeze. 😀 Just joking. We also have to watch for our pipes. We had to call off a clothes washing today because of a frozen washing machine drain. It will be a few days before that issue is settled. Overall, however, we a blessed by the hand of God.

    Take care and stay warm. This is not a time to catch cold.

  8. One of the things I appreciate about living in Canada is that I can leave my ice cream in the car for hours and it is absolutely fine 🙂

    Take care, Oneta and stay warm.
