Dreaming of a White Christmas?
Finally the solstice, tomorrow our days begin to lengthen, even just a few minutes each day brings optimism. The dangerous wind chills and drifting snow are causing emergency warnings. But the predictions give us a white Christmas that we generally just hope for and more often than not don't receive. I'm working at rearranging my living area for working and I have 7 dogs underfoot. To take a break from that I have a cat who needs to wrap around my neck while I'm on the computer. Well actually anytime, but at the computer I'm a sitting duck. She needs a nail trim. I'm somewhat scarred from being her climbing post. She doesn't understand at all why I'm so displeased with her affections. It must be cabin fever. Captain is balking at the cold and I should fashion him a sweatshirt of sorts since his coat is barely a half inch thick. Dixie, the chihuahua also refuses to go out. Back to the reorder of living quarters for Christmas meal...so much to do...so little time.
