seekrit santa gifts

This is the amazing gift package I recieved from my Seekrit Santa.
Enthral sent exactly what I had hinted to as my favorite things! Earthy elements of nature. I recieved copper jewelry and a way-cool leather cuff that I only took off for this photo. The hair elastics are going to lilux and she loves them. My hair is too short for them otherwise I'd not let them go. Thanks so much Enthral!

Things I sent to Intentionally Crooked, my seekrit santa recipient. Beeswax tapers, bath salts, my Fine Essentials best seller, "Headache Away" (which I hope she never has to use, but in case she does it's now handy for her to do so), 2 knit/crochet cotton wash cloths, and a big ol' dairymilk chocolate bar to share with her family if she chooses to share. lol And one of our funny family traditions at christmas, is to wrap something unexpected in a prezzie, like a potato, or an onion, and stick it in a pocket or sock or something. So I added a clementine orange to this parcel. Sent a month ago, it ought to be interesting to hear how it looked on christmas morn. Perhaps a lil bit dried up? : )

We've Got S*N*O*W !!!!!

Yes, we have Got Snow!
But the little birds don't seem to mind a whole lot as long as they have seeds to eat.

This one looked up as I took it's picture. What's he trying to tell me???

This is how much snow we woke up to after last night's snowfall.

There was about half this much yesterday.

Then it started snowing again shortly after daybreak.
So much snow is comming down even as I type now at 1:30pm and it's gotten so overcast to the point that the porch lights can be seen. The color blue at the bottom of the porch light is the blue light glowing since it's got quite overcast with the clouds and steady falling snow.
And it's kind of funny,
how it's just as bad looking out the side of the house...
As it is out the front and even out the back of the house looks like a blizzard too!

It's snowing EVERYWHERE, all around us!
; )


And do you think a single cat can be found anywhere???
I had to go find where they curled up to hide till all this snow stops.

I found Henry ...
Next I found Sammy with his paw over his face, and he only looked up for a second to basically give a quick chuckle of contentment since he's inside so there's no worries!

I had to look extra hard to find Keebie's hiding spot, but I finally found her here.

Tough being a CAT!
