So it was 60 something degrees 3 days ago. Today we had snow on Christmas!!!! What a treat!! (mute music at bottom of page before playing video).
Large flakes start to stick at noon. Suprise video mode.
Still snowing at 3pm. Luckily I figured out the video mode.
Lots of snow east of town.
Sorry it's tilted. I didn't know it was on video mode. Still figuring this thing out.

Don't you just love getting the chance to sit and savor the season?! Ah, the rocking chair, the patio and Tocca!
P.S. Now it really would be peace on earth...or at least in my backyard...if those two turtle doves would stop hogging the feeder and share with the cute little finches and the brightest cardinal I've seen in a while. Adam I think I'll name him....Adam.
P.S.S. I have also saved my berry decorations by using dark red nail polish to hide the styrofoam spots! Ingenious, I know.

Just when I get out for break, early at that,
I hit shopping traffic on the way home.
Just when I decide to host folks in my house,
it never fails that I have a lack of motivation to clean.
Just when I decide to give Adam's truck a spin,
it never fails that something goes wrong (the battery died this time).
Just when I remove Levon's dog bone from the garden,
does he go in looking for it only to tear up the tomato posts.
And just after I get the truck fixed,
does he jump in the front seat instead of the back.
Just when I have the motivation again to clean the inside,
do I have to work on the outside of the house instead.
Just when I've had some good days and am going strong,
it never fails that I lose strength and shed a tear, or a few.
Just when I think I'm alone and have decided it's not all about "I,"
it never fails that God decides to show up somewhere.
He never fails me. I just have to get away from all the "I's" to realize it.
