Oh my! We awoke this morning to frozen pipes! It's -10F (-25C) and not warming up. Jim's been under the house checking the pipes and hauling water from the pump. Poor guy! We've accumulated nearly a foot of snow.
I love watching our dogs in the snow. Kelly still makes "snow angels" and her coat is so clean & soft. Jessie is obsessed with the bird feeder. Jim puts food on the ground since we have such a huge population of doves. This drives Jess crazy and she eats the seed whenever she's out.
Yesterday Jim tryed out the snow blade on his ATV. Not enough snow to really need it yet. Both dogs had to ride along so he took them for a spin around the property.
I'm all ready for Christmas! (Except the cards) Have to wait 'til Thursday when Jim's at the doc's to wrap his gift. He's in charge of getting (DS1) Ken's gift. Wow! One gift! We're not decorating much this year. Patrick (DS2) wants to host Christmas at his place. So we'll be traveling to Eugene. Ugh! I hate going over the pass in winter. Pat always does an over-kill Christmas but this year all of the boys will be together so I guess it's a good thing!
Both Jim & I have been having back problems. He doesn't complain much and I don't want to carry on about it here. We had a miserable weekend. I'm just tired of running into town to the doc's. Today we'll be discussing laser surgery! Ouch!
On that note, I must get ready to go. Wishing you all the blessings of Christmas.
