Snow and a Cold

'Twas a dark Thursday morning, when all through the house; nothing was stirring, not even the house.

While me in my flannel, and David in his sweats, we were sleeping soundly with no regrets.

When over the house there arose such a clatter, I got out of bed (too old to "spring" out of bed) to see what was the matter.

When what to my wondering eyes should appear, but thunder and lighting, and a blizzard so near.

Yep, at 5:30 this morning the infamous convergence zone settled over our house and the snow storm hit. It's been a steady snow since then and we now have over 6". It is beautiful and so we might as well stay inside and enjoy it.

David and I decided to put up the Christmas tree (now that the roof, thank God, is done) and put the house in order for Christmas. Edgar helped.
Each year we wrap our ornaments in tissue, so I was piling it on the loveseat not realizing Edgar was napping.
I looked around and asked David where Edgar was and there he was all nice and cozy under tissue. You can't see it in this picture, but the pile of tissue is moving with Edgar's tail.
He finally pulled his head up to look at me and promptly went back to sleep.

The snow is beautiful, and does make everything seem serene and clean.

Last weekend David and I went to Edgar's Acres and moved into our new house. We love it. The dogs love it. It was so good to be back home.
This is the family room. All of the old furniture looks good. Mind you, all of this furniture is hand me downs, cast offs, and finds at a second hand store. When we moved in five years ago, we cleaned out storage units, basements and garages, of all of the "stuff" from Mom, Mother and Marguerite. Amazing how it all came together.
Note Edgar is right at home. His couch is back!
We even put up a little Christmas tree!
The living room will need a few more pieces, but that will come later.
And here is my kitchen. This is an 8 butt kitchen. The kitchen in the old house was a one butt kitchen, and the kitchen in our Bellevue house is a two butt kitchen. I LOVE this kitchen.
It's bright and has lots and lots of counter space.
And the house is warm. None of the snow melted off of the roof on this house.

Well, I'm going to go knit. I can't post what I'm working on right now. Too close to Christmas.
