I think Blogger is being a bugger ( as my British friends would say). I am sitting here at work, waiting for the big "I want to buy a million dollar house" call and trying tp read blogs and all of a sudden no one has any pictures. No headers, no picturs just text on everyone's blogs. So much for oohing and ahing over the glorious Christmas decor.
It snowed here a bit last night and then we had some freezing rain and probably some sleet thrown in for good measure. While all that was going on I was asleep and not aware of what I refer to as the Pre-Christmas Miracle. I think I have mentioned, probably more than once because my middle name is redundant or is it verbose, I forget and digress, that I like to decorate for the holidays with natural things. Saves money, easy cleanup and I just like bringing the outside in for the holidays. This is where the Pre-Christmas Miracle comes into play. Every year sometime before Christmas we are "blessed" with heavy, wet snow or a wind storm that knocks down a limb from one of our aging white pines. Sure enough I looked out the window this morning to see slush in the yard and a big limb. This one is probably only about 12 feet long, but it took out a couple of small hemlock branches as well. I don't like to do the mantel until about a week ahead of time because the greens dry up too quickly, but there are many other spots that will benefit from some nice fresh pine.
Got to go and look Realtorish as the boss is just pulling up....although she would be the last to criticize.
