Brrrr! Good morning. It is coooold! My end of the house does not have insulation beneath the floors, so I have carpeting on most of my floor space. Thank goodness for that, because I can still feel the cold coming right through the floor. Without the carpeting, my toes would be quite frosty by now.
Today we have sunshine without the rain and snow. I'm thankful for the sun, but oh my, I just do not like this cold. In my younger days, I was much sturdier than I seem to be these days. I guess this newly acquired fragility is just another part of growing older.
Yesterday morning, bright and early at 7:30 a.m., the work crew showed up to finish the work on the house. Within a very short time, the snow started falling, and it was a very wet snow. The men just kept on working. After a while, the snow wasn't as wet but it was still falling. We were very lucky that this was not a heavy snow.
Here's a couple of photos showing the snow coming down and covering the trees with a layer of white. The first shot is my Emperor Tree, and the second is a shot of one of my gentle giants.
It was still snowing when the work crew finished the work on my house, and left to start another job.
I also took a photo of my little Pogo. This shot is interesting because it shows just how tiny he is. He is walking between the lounge chair and the TV console. Isn't it amazing how something this tiny can bring you so much joy and happiness?
I haven't had much energy lately. There is wrapping waiting for me in the next room and I just haven't been able to push myself to go in there and finish it. I will need to do it soon because the boxes need to be mailed out this week.
Well, that's about it for this morning. For those of you enduring this nasty cold weather without even electric power, I surely do hope that all the lines are repaired and that you have your power back on. Till tomorrow, Y'all be warm and safe, and have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
