They predicted around four inches of snow for Saturday night. The wind was pounding against the building and gusting so that whatever amount of this dry, fine snow we did get...
...mostly blew around into tiny drifts.
The wind was coming our direction this time, though, so we got some snow on the porch. It was seven degrees Sunday morning. The snow crunched and squeaked under Karma's feet. Too cold to stay out long, so she scooted in before I could get her picture out there.
I worked on the Christmas cards in small batches over the weekend and got them all finished up by late last night. Saturday I was still working on the half with the Stickles.
Karma kept me company...but she would have rather I was paying more attention to her, of course.
Yesterday I worked on the glazing.
Got them all drying by late morning...
...so that in the afternoon I could get out my trusty bone folder and then stamp the insides with a sentiment...
...and leave them to dry well.
I was up late to finish them...and then had a strange bad dream and couldn't get back to sleep this morning so I'm here early. :) The sky is beginning to orange up. I can't chat long because I can feel it already in my back. I probably shouldn't have done that last session on the cards last night--LOL! Oh, but...Christmas music and a little bit of snow...I lost my head. ;)
It's eight below zero right now. I am glad I don't have to go any place. I haven't read but a handful of blogs for days, so I guess I'll do some reading and whatever sessions my body can manage today for addressing envelopes--whoohoo! Love Christmas!! Maybe I'll stick in my favorite movie--It's A Wonderful Life. It really is, you know. ;)
