I'm totally jealous of everyone who lives east of here who is getting snow. Nothing like a holiday week for a snowstorm! And everyone probably has fairly full fridges and lots of new toys to play with.

All we have here is heavy rain...I can't complain too much because it has been fairly dry this week. Yesterday we took the dogs for our traditional Christmas long walk...about three miles...and stayed dry. That was just one part of loveliness on a very lovely day.

The dogs' gift is to sleep in our bed (with us) on Christmas eve; this was Pilot's first year to join us and the first time he has slept outside of his crate. Both dogs did pretty well and stayed with us till about 2am, when Juneau got too hot and jumped down and Pilot, well, let's just say it was time for him to return to his crate.

Christmas morning had presents and phone calls and home made sausages, followed by the aforementioned walk, followed by the playing of new Wii games, followed by dinner prepared by Tim with his new panini maker, followed by me following asleep during an episode of "Inspector Morse". Pretty much a perfect day.

Here is a sock I've been working on, sorry for the horrible picture, it is Sunshine Yarn in the "Lollipop Guild" colorway from the Woolgirl Oz Sock Club. I'll work on it more today, I think: today the celebrations continue with brunch with friends and the Colts game. It is Sunday, right?

I know! It definitely does NOT feel like a Sunday.

Sounds like a great day; so happy for all of you.

Not having the snow was a blessing in disguise for you. The roads were awful and people who wanted to visit really couldn't. Of course, it was nice for those who just wanted to enjoy the people who were already with them.

Wishing you a Happy Rest of the Season!

We had snow in Columbia, SC for the first time that I can remember during December. Two of the nephews stayed with us Christmas night and had a big surprise when they awoke the next day. They had a blast.
