To each his own. To me my own.

Winter wonderland

“Baby… it’s white outside”, I woke up to Keith whispering in my ear about 4am this morning. Sure enough, the ground was covered – as much of the south is today. It’s been an unusual winter so far in the south in terms of snowfall. The next few hours were spent pulling up dopplar radars on our phones and contacting the necessary bosses to advise them we weren’t coming in.

As long as Keith and I have been together and through several snows, we’ve never been together during a snow. So instead of packing up and going home yesterday, I went and gathered some extra clothes and opted to stay at his house. Being the sweetie he is, he even took me to the store and bought me some boots to walk in the snow in (it’s tough getting around in the white stuff  in tennis-shoes). We loaded up on the needed goods including another feeder and more sunflower seed for the birds, which they’ve been going nuts over this morning. Camille’s been so enthralled with the birds, that like a little kid she won’t even take a nap. In typical southern fashion, the snow has pretty much crippled the city and surrounding areas.

But it’s soooo pretty. 🙂

Camille scored her a new bed Friday, which would’ve normally taken a few weeks for her to break down and get in. For some unknown reason, she took right to this one! Maybe it’s the color fashion that so closely corresponds with her own.

Or maybe it was the fire.

  1. “Baby… it’s white outside.” I like that line. So cute. It surely is a beautiful view outside the window! Camille does blend in nicely with her new bed. Blessings to you, Bonnie…

      Thanks, dear Carol Ann. It is beautiful to look at but it’s brought nearly everything to a screeching halt, ha!! Blessings to you.

      Thanks, Sweet Dreamer. True it’s pretty to look at for a few days, and also true that us southerners don’t have a clue how to drive in it. With the new addition of .25″ of pure ice last night, cars are ditched everywhere. My car will remain intact though, parked safely in the driveway. 🙂
