As usual, I can't catch a picture of the huge floaty flakes that I love to watch dancing past my window...
...but this is what I woke up to this afternoon. Right now it is 6 below. We had warnings again last night and today--between 30-45 below wind chills. You'd think it was too cold to snow--hehe! Well, I am sad. Last night the bulb started to flicker on the Holtkotter reading lamp...again. *sigh*
Miss Karma sat right up in her chair to watch the light show.
She knew what would come next. The moving of stuff about to get another lamp over by my chair.
So. It must be the lamp itself. :(
I have had trouble with it ever since I moved here. I wouldn't doubt it might have been caused by the rough handling of the apartment movers who broke or damaged so many of my things on the dreaded move across the river up here. [They tried to charge me almost three times what they estimated--which I didn't have--harassed me on the phone--took me to court--and they lost. I had pictures of all the damages.] ??? Could be the cause, I suppose. Who knows?
Anyways, I'll have to check to see if by chance it has a lifetime warranty--doubtful--even if it is the Cadillac of the lamp world--hehe! But you never know, right? Then whether or not the fancy lighting store knows of a person who does repairs AND whether I can even afford to have it repaired in the first place. There's a reason people like me should stick to the cheap lamps at Target, I guess--hehe!
Miss Karma is not happy with this set up being back again. She normally jumps up onto the arm of my chair from the rear--right here--where it is now blocked by the TV tray, box, and lamp stacking.
Rough life. She has such a rough life. :)
Well, on a lighter note...we've had a kitten rescue in the news and by the news folk up here...
...and It's A Wonderful Life was on last night!! My all time favorite, favorite, favorite Christmas movie!! Now I'll have to watch A Christmas Story. Any Christmas movies after that are just frosting on the cake, but I watch those two--for sure--every year.
I just love, love, love the Christmas season!! :):)
