SNOW..............

has come to the Meadow House.  Started this afternoon about 3.  Don't think it'll amount to much but it sure is pretty and Christmasy.  The trouble with snow is I will lose some satellite reception, but, I've seen 99% of the Christmas movies anyhow.  I did watch 'The Bishop's Wife' and the last 1/2 hour of 'An Affair to Remember'.  I am a Cary Grant fan.  So-much-so that I named Archie after him.  For those of you that don't know, his real name was Archibald Leech.  I can understand the need to change it.

So, I'm sitting here with a nice fire, listening to classical music and trying to deal with the Christmas blues that I get every year.  I know Jesus is the reason for the season.  But I really cannot wait for this holiday to be over.  It seems to get worse every year. 

On a brighter note, went to 5 different stores today to get my cranberry-orange relish.  Can't be found.  Poop, shoulda went to Market on Friday.  Oh well, guess I'll just show up empty-handed at my friends house.  They won't care but I do.

Went to dad's this after, visited for a while, then he mentioned about throwing the rest of the firewood he had rikked-up at the Bilco door.  I offered to help, he declined saying I had enuf to do at home, I replied that I already had my wood in.  So, he went down and unlocked the doors at the devil steps (the ones I fell down, remember?).  It didn't take but a few minutes and it was done.  I do not even offer to rik up his wood, oh no, nobody, not even GOD, could do THAT to please him.  But, at least I can throw it down those devil steps.

So, hope everyone has a safe and Merry CHRISTmas, and that the fat guy brings you all that you wish for.  ME?  I just want peace on earth, that's all.

Later...............

Enjoy the snow, Sharon. Merry Christmas. I know how you feel. It's so very quiet here without the sound of children.

Yes, its the children that make Christmas. Our youngest, my nephew, is getting ready to retire from UPS. Merry Christmas Stephen.

I do miss the snow since I moved to Texas, especially this time of year. We have no tree, no decoration, no presents, and no wreaths. I do have my Blue Bell chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream to celebrate with. It has been very warm and it is real nice out tonight. That is going to change with a front moving in with predicted tornadoes. Hope they are wrong.

I hope they are wrong also, Dizzy. Hope Christmas is safe and happy for you and the family.

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas. I had to work in the week hours and got home this morning. Roads are nasty, but Barkley and I are in for the next 36 hours, safe and dry.

I am so happy when christmas is done, we have Hanukkah and that is enough for me.I get very blue due to the lack of sunshine and get out at the crack of dawn to get some daylight.The kittehs I have get up in the wee hours and go out and do their business and run back inside to their new humongous condo and sleep forever or so it seems.We are going to the beach and hear the waves, suppose to snow and ice there, my friends are my family beside my hubbs and only child who lives in NYC we see a lot each year.but she is grown up and we only celebrate each day, one never knows when one will leave this terrestrial, hubbs retired by jan I am too..wooh hoo. we are rich in spirit and poor with any gelt(money) but we have love and affection, help others and our Lord seems to help us out whenever there is a need, we are like the Hobbit story on an unexpected journey, mostly like hippies, human, felines are more important than things! happy 2013 it will be here really soon!ciao!
