Good morning girls. I know I've been MIA the last couple of days. It's been quite the zoo around here. Not that that's anything new and different. I often tell people if we had one calm moment and things running smoothly around here I would probably have a cardiac.. Not kidding girls. Many of you know I've been dealing with an adjuster who has the personality of a bent fence post since August. For those of you who don't know we had a water pipe burst on August 27Th. And that whole issue still isn't resolved. I pray it will be soon. This is a little bit of what I'm talking about....This past week the phones didn't ring in at all. I probably missed the call of a life time due to that little cliche in our life. The other night I came home to the trash compactor not working properly. And to put the icing on the cake the refrigerator has warm milk instead of cold. We all know this is suppose to be a joyous time of the year. I'm trying girls but the real world keeps getting in our way. So, I ask you. How much more can a gal take?? All I can say is Thank Goodness for my popcorn and coffee. It's my drug of choice, my little awwweee of the day. The one moment I take for myself and let it take me away from my troubles and woes.

OK..enough of all of that.. On the brighter side I wanted to share with you our first snow of the season. A ground covering snow. The snow started on Saturday evening and the ground was covered. It's an old wives tale around here...the first ground snow of the season marks the number of snows you'll have for the year. YIKES!!! That could mean 29 snows total..28 to go!! I sure hope this wives tale falls through the cracks.

It was dusk when I rushed out to shoot this shot. See the snowflakes on the camera? It was so pretty coming down and cold. Girls I rushed to share this with you. Now, that's called being a true blogger right?

You can barely see my little angel in the birdbath. Don't you know her little wings were getting cold? Remember, I'm cold so I'm hurrying here girls !!

I tried to get a little better shot of the snow. Girls... the camera is even acting up. And that just can't happen too... what would a blogger do without her camera?

And last but not least a shot out the patio door. I think the blue spruce needs to be dressed up with some Christmas lights..
I hope you enjoyed our "first snow" of the season. Now, I'm off to work sure hope it's not a "long" one.. There's been quite a few of those in a row.. I miss you all !! hugs lynne
