During shot

20131222_1 Yesterday I had the “before” photo – before the snowstorm started.   This is the “during” photo taken about 8:30 this a.m.   When I looked out at 4:30 a.m., it hadn’t started snowing yet.  The snow is falling at a good steady pace but it is tiny tiny flakes – the kind that will really blow and drift when the wind picks up – which its supposed to do later.  I woke up about 5:30 hearing the snowplow guys clearing our sidewalk and shoveling by my door.  (and contemplated going and asking them — do you realize when you are yelling OVER the sound of the snowblowers to each other right outside my bedroom window that I might be trying to sleep!!??) LOL    It looks pretty back by me but I think these little flakes must be really slippery out on the streets because there’s a long line of churches in neighboring towns and cities  who have cancelled their services this a.m. going across the bottom of my tv screen.  And apparently the swatch of heavy snow hasn’t gotten here  yet but will be moving in later today – up to an inch an hour – but it looks like the heaviest band of snow might miss us so we hopefully will only get 5-8″.

20131222_2I filled the bird feeder yesterday so you can see there were many birds out there last night or early this morning as several inches of seed are gone.  My other bird feeder had broken and one of Santa’s elves (my good friend and coworker who one of my bosses always consults to see what I might want, need, or recently broke and need replaced for Christmas) told Santa Guy and he got me a great new feeder – tho it’s not doing the birds any good under my desk at work! I forgot to bring it home on Friday.

So I’ll just be spending today inside looking out at the winter wonderland and waiting until tomorrow to venture out into it.

I did pull the little tree out, found the garland and there’s little crystal  icicles and then those old-fashioned twisted painted metal icicles.  Now I just need to unwrap the mini ornaments to put on it but I got sidetracked yesterday writing up a quilt pattern.

And I remembered my snowman cookie jar that was stored away so pulled him out to wash him up cause he’s just cute (ignore those dishes in the dish drainer behind the tree — you do not see them!)

  1. Love the Charlie brown tree! It’s cute and small. Snuggles would carry that one off if we had it, hee hee hee. Looks like you had a great pre-Christmas week. Hope the post-Christmas week goes much better for you!

  2. Ignore WHAT dishes in WHAT drainer? I don’t see a thing! 🙂 You’re lucky with your bird feeder. I put out several, but the deer know where they are, and I could go through 40 lbs. of bird seed in a week if I tried to keep my feeders full!! Enjoy your Christmas!

  3. There will be no cookie baking here! 🙂 The snowman will just have to be decorative and have an empty tummy – a cookie jar of cookies would definitely NOT coexist well with Weight Watchers.

  4. Cute cookie snowman jar. Today would be a great day for baking and filling his belly (and yours) up with yummy cookies. I don’t see any dishes either. Must be something your drinking. lol

  5. I love looking at other people’s snow pictures, prefer not to have any of my own unless I can stay home and enjoy it. That much snow around here would have news crews in a panic….flake by flakes reporting.
    I need to get my tree up today since the family will be here Wednesday, can’t disappoint the kiddos by not having a tree. LOVE your cookie jar….fill that bad boy up!
    What dishes are you talking about? 😉
