Notice that pretty picture below of the house decked out in boughs of green and red lights? Notice the snow wafting lazily across the screen. You are looking at my house right now…no RIGHT NOW, not on the screen, LIVE. It looks like that right now, except the lights are off and its daylight. Even the snow is falling lazily, like on the blog. But the snow, and the house pretty much look the same. The weather in the NW, has been unusually cold, as in we don’t usually get this cold. Can you say a high of 21 degrees? Generally when we get cold, we get no moisture, when we get moisture, we have no cold. Well that changed about a week ago and we are having a full fledge, redo-the-city-budget-and-buy-snow plows sort of winter. Frankly I couldn’t be happier. I have a job where I can work from home and I’m getting lots done. Um, I’m at lunch right now.
We actually buy wood for our wood stove for the few times that we do get cold. Sweet Husband bought half a cord awhile back and we are about a third of the way through that. When the wood was delivered, he was busy stacking and sorting it while I made up some inside the house duty that I had to fulfill. He is so sweet. My perfect Sunday is having a fire, watching the Seahawks lose, while I’m curled up on the couch with a book.
Our cats love a fire, and we now we have to be judicious with our fire wood. What is it with cats and heat? Are they part reptile? Our cats would lay on the metal of the stove if we would let them. But I hate the smell of burnt cat flesh, so off they stay. These goofy girls will get so hot they can’t fully stand up to move and crawl on their fat bellies to a cooler place. But that doesn’t last for long, pretty soon, they are back near the fire, but warming the other side now.
But we’re not the only ones getting the white stuff. Check out the Vegas Princess who knew they could get more snow than us.
Be safe, be warm.
