We Had A Snow Storm Today

For only the 4th time since records have been recorded we had a snow storm in December.  All week the weather forecast was for a trace to 1" of snow, then on the evening of Christmas Day it was changed to 2-4 inches.  Well we ended up getting close to 8 inches of snow.  Since this is the south, most people do not know how to drive in the snow (by noon there were over 200 accidents).  Add to that the fact that the DOT ran out of sand and salt....well the result is....only main roads have been plowed and treated.  All secondary roads are a mess and the temps are to drop into the 20s overnight, so driving tomorrow morning will be very bad.  Here are a few pictures I took earlier today.

From my front door.  Neighbor dogs were having a ball in the snow. 

 This is the outdoor cat who has never come into the house in 15 years!  She will not go back outside, cannot say that I blame her.  

I think this branch will have to come down.....

I hope everyone had a great holiday week-end.  I did not venture out for any 'day after Christmas' shopping deals.  I only wanted to stock up on wrapping paper for next year and possibly find a little something for myself.  Oh well, I will probably still find wrapping paper on sale in the next few days, and if not, well I can live without it.

What I Got For Christmas

I have tried to win one of these online from the Pioneer Woman, but it has never been my luck.  Today, I got this beauty from my sons and their wives.   I am so happy!  This matches all the other small appliances in my kitchen.

Isn't it beautiful?  I cannot wait until tomorrow when I will make something yummy with my new mixer.

A Warm Snuggly Christmas

Christmas Cookies

I have had a problem getting into the Christmas spirit this year.  Since I plan to travel right after Christmas, I did not put up a tree or any decorations.  A few days ago my 11 year old granddaughter wanted to make cookies.  So on Sunday afternoon she came to my house and we made and decorated 7 dozen sugar cookies.  It was fun, and managed to give me some much needed Christmas spirit.  I still did not decorate the house or put up a tree, but I have enjoyed eating a few of these little beauties. 

I hope you are all ready for Christmas and have a safe and happy holiday with your family and friends.  I am looking forward to dinner on Christmas Day with my sons and their families, and spending next week with my lovely daughter/son-in-law and seeing my two youngest grandchildren. My travels will be dictated by the weather, so I have no firm plans, just going to watch the weather report.  I also hope to spend a few days on Cape Cod where they are currently getting lots of snow.

I Cannot Stop Laughing

If you need a good laugh, just check out this website.

I was laughing so hard that it brought tears to my eyes.  I do not have a phone with auto correct, but based on what I read, I think I might be lucky.  LOL!

I hope everyone is staying warm during this Artic Blast so many of us are suffering through.  It was 18 degrees when I got up this morning and that is very unusual this time of year where I live.  I am freezing!!!!

Are you all ready for Christmas?  I am not, but I am working on it each day.  

Now back to whatever you were doing.......
