Good morning on this wet, soggy, snowy? morning. Well the snow got heavier last evening and through the night, leaving us with 5 or 6 inches of the white stuff. However, as the night wore on, the snow was rather wet, and by around 4 or 5 this morning, it was already changed over to rain. This of course, left us with a yard full of heavy wet snow on top of watery slush.
Here's a photo of the driveway during the night, a little after 1 a.m. I took the photo through the plexiglass window on the storm door. It was just too yucky outside to go out for the photo.
When morning came (daylight), Joe fortified himself with a large cup of hot coffee, and then went outside to play with the new snow blower. Here's a few photos of him clearing the front end of the driveway. Personally, I think he's having too much fun!
This morning around 2 a.m., I took Pogo into the bathroom and gave him a medicated shampoo bath. He has a dry, patchy skin condition and he had started scratching away, so I thought the bath might help ease the itch. His hair is growing a bit longer now and he looks like a regular Yorkie. I like the look so I might leave it this way for now. He is just so handsome. I'll have to take some new photos of his face.
Well folks, what can I say? I feel so special these days. Yesterday, another package came in the mail from my Secret Santa. Yup, Yup! This one had a beautiful little note card inside that read "Because orange is your favorite color your Secret Santa thought you'd like something made with love~" Oh my, it was a gorgeous hand made tote bag. I just love it!
I don't know who my Secret Santa is yet, but I want to tell her that I have been having so much fun. She has made my Christmas just absolutely wonderful, and made me feel really special. Thank you so much. Here's a photo of my beautiful tote bag. Isn't this pretty? I already toted Pogo all around the house in it! After that, I put it under the tree with everything else.
Now I think I'm going to have me another cup of coffee. Everyone out in the house has already gotten up and had their coffee or breakfast and gone back to bed. It's a rather dreary day, so I guess they are all catching up on their sleep. It's amazing considering how many adults live in the house, how quiet it is out there. Right now, they are all back in their rooms snoozing away.
I guess I'll just make myself another cup of coffee and watch a bit of TV. So, till tomorrow, Y'all be safe and have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
