Winter’s coming, brace yourselves!

For those who have read some of my previous posts you are well aware that I come from a tiny, cozy and warm country. Our annual mean temperature is 76°F. Lately, in Hanover, we have been experiencing cold, and by cold I mean freezing cold temperatures. Once again, I want to address all of you…

Unexpected winter wonderland

Somehow it surprises me every year, but the cold this year seems to have just hit a lot quicker and a lot harder than it usually does. Just last week we had highs in the sixties. That is the perfect temperature for me and it could have stayed like that for … well … the…

Adding a little Joy to my day

As much as I would have loved to watch the Hanover football team dominate Saturday’s Homecoming game, I was unable to attend. I chose to spend my rainy day indoors at a tea party. My church, Salem Assembly of God, hosted the party where many ladies from the community gathered together. Now when you think…

Oh yeah, it’s winter

After a few weeks of the temperatures in the 50s (and I think it got up into the 60s a few days) it seemed like autumn was still upon the Hanover campus. Few were complaining, and it was nice not to have to wear a coat every day for a little bit. Of course, like…
