This Kind Of Snow I Can Handle!

December 18, 2011

The sun hasn't decided yet whether or not it wants to shine on my little part of the world.  The weather is still trying to decide what to do about the snow I think.  Yesterday afternoon, we had seven or eight snowflakes that fell in my yard but they melted before they hit the ground.  Then during the night, there was maybe a handful or two of flakes that fell.  Gosh folks, I can did this kind of snow!

Here's a photo of the snow that was on my car this morning.  As soon as I opened and shut the door, it all disappeared.   (sorry for the blur)

I also got a nice photo of the sky at 6:50 a.m.  It sort of looks like it can't quite decide whether or not to snow some more or move away so the sun could shine.  Either way, it was quite pretty.

Yesterday, I got a lot done.  My last little package went out in the mail, I went to the store and picked up some food and a gift certificate.  I ordered one last gift from the shopping channel, and wrapped another gift.  Now I only have a couple of gifts left to wrap and a fruit basket to make.   I'll only be cooking Christmas dinner this year for myself and Tootsie.  All of the dwarfs will be spending time with their families on Christmas day.

I have to work Christmas Eve and Christmas night, so I will be looking forward to a nice quiet day with Tootsie.  There will be visits from my children who live nearby, and phone calls from the ones who live out of the state.  So all in all, it will be a nice Holiday.

My beautiful little yellow rose is still blossoming outside our kitchen window.  I realize that with this cold weather it probably won't live much longer, but I sure do love seeing it there.  I just went outside to get my newspaper and take a new photo of my rose, and six or eight snowflakes wafted down from the heavens and then the sun came out.  Folks, you just gotta love New England!

That's all the news for this morning.  I want to finish up another photo class assignment before it's nap time.  Till tomorrow, Y'all have a fabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Nice moody sky photo - I've learned to start collecting these kinds of shots to use in Photoshop projects.

Getting itchy to start heading south, preparing laundry so I can start packing.

Pity you'll have to work with Christmas, but still nice you can spend the day with Tootsie. And it will be nice to have a visit or two and some phonecalls and then also will have to time to relax and just make for dinner what you really like and easy to make LOL.
I hope the snow will pass quickly, and that it just will be perhaps a couple of snowflakes and no more!
Have a nice day.
