Merry Christmas-It's Winter Across the Country


WinterTree, originally uploaded by carolsLittleWorld.

Merry Christmas everybody! I just wanted to pop in and wish everybody a very merry. My heart too goes out to those of you who are stuck, stranded, snowed in, or just caught up in the big blizzard that's gripping the middle of the continental United States today. Phew! Is that a crazy storm or what? I heard they got a foot of snow in Oklahoma and it's snowing in crazy places. We even had a few flurries here, though nothing to really keep anybody home about. (If you must know, it was just enough snow to be kind of fun-we got to watch a flake or two fall from the sky, just enough to remind us that old man winter is around the corner but not enough to block off any traffic or cause any troubles.) This is what the sky looks like when it's about "fixin' to snow" (as they say in these parts.)

I'm home and safe, watching a bit of TV and reading a lot. Really enjoying my downtime, as it's been quite fun to be home day after day, without having to take a "work break" (as it were) to go make enough money to keep Chase in his kibble.

I'm also getting ready for the new year in terms of thinking about my resolutions. This year, I want to read more (already started doing that) and I'm also going to try to draw more-I'm thinking about signing up for some regular sessions to sort of get my artistic juices flowing a bit. I'll do a formal resolutions post when it gets closer to the new year. For now, I'm off to watch a bit more TV, read some more, and work on the house a bit.

Here's hoping all of you out there aren't stuck, stranded, or the like and are enjoying a very happy holiday with friends and family.

Until next time...

Not stuck...not stranded, but helluva windstorm last night and it rained in my bedroom. I had to get up and put a bowl down on the floor to catch it. No big deal, I had to pee, anyway.

Hope you had a lovely holiday. It snowed like the dickens here today in Chicago!

Oh dear! Sorry to hear that you had so much rain, Mythopolis. That sounds really horrible. I heard there were some heavy rains in the south and much snow up north.

Happy Christmas to you too, Janice! I hope you had a great one.

Kala, I hope you got to go out and enjoy the snow a bit. Maybe take some pictures or make a snowman? I hope you had a great holiday too!
