The Thundering Herd's entertaining blog, you are aware that one of the redheads, Cheowah, has a mighty addiction to Sliding in the snow. Now to me, its not so bad, keeps the girl nice and clean, smelling fresh, she just isn't able to STOP herself from doing it..
In the interest of fair play, it only seems right to say that Stella has a fairly addictive winter habit too. That is, when the snow gets deep enough, she can't keep her NOSE out of it. Now she could pretty much hide this addiction except that she goes around with a white ring around her nose whenever she is outdoors. Its like a messy eater with gravy stains down the front of them, everyone just Knows where it comes from.
We are like you, more than busy for Christmas, yesterday was such a pretty day with heavy hoar frost on the trees and bushes.
Thanks to all of you who wrote some Christmas Memories on our last weeks blog. I'd love to see more!
I have one more thing from my childhood, teenhood, that I just loved. When our City workers put up the Christmas Decorations years ago, they would string evergreen garlands across the street, from one light post to the other, then add a string of colored lights to it. I loved it so much because it was pretty and it smelled so wonderful (fresh pine boughs, whats better?) and bright lights. Now the City has bought plastic Christmas fixtures that go on the light posts and they are duller than dirt. But I am sure they are big money savers both in worker's labor, and one time cost for the lights. But Oh, how I miss the pine boughs and the lights across the street. I wish they could afford to go back to the old way!
Happy Weekend to you all, thank you for putting up with my Christmas Memories!
Cheers, hugs, and Merry Christmas,
Jo, Stella and Ali Zophia
