There is something wonderful happening today. Randy, Roxy, Otis and I are cozy and warm inside the 5th-wheel. ‘Our’ Christmas music is playing and it is near blizzard conditions outside. Although, we have gone outside a couple of times to play in the snow.
I took my camera outside, but didn’t take the time to wrap it to protect it from the snowflakes. I hid it underneath my scarf, and found quite by accident that my scarf makes an interesting filter.
Speaking of Christmas music … I have all of ours on a playlist. Well, all of our Christmas tunes with the exception of Charlotte Church. There is not a doubt that Charlotte Church is a great singer. But those high notes … they are hard to take and enjoy. Katherine Jenkins runs a close second to Charlotte, but I have been too lazy to remove her from the playlist. Jackie Evancho maybe on thin ice, too. The Messiah was Penny’s favorite for Christmas music, so I downloaded The Mormon Tabernacle Choir’s version. Let’s just say that Penny and I don’t have the same taste in Christmas music.
Roxy is not only our resident thief, I discovered quite a hoard of treasures hiding in the closet. A blanket, three tennis balls, a couple of dog toys and two bones. Last night, she got up in the middle of the night to steal a bone of Otis’ off the couch. How do I know this, you ask? Because I was awoken by her dropping the bone on the floor when she was trying to sneak it into the closet.
I have to be doing something when I am talking on the phone. Most of the time, I am working on a jigsaw puzzle on my laptop. Yesterday, I moved a couple of puzzle pieces around and they made a heart. Ahhhh ….
Goldfish crackers have been our favorite snack these days. I do have to wonder : why do not all the goldfish crackers have a smile?
We were surprised with a bit of snow on Wednesday. It wasn’t much, just enough to make all the trees look pretty. Roxy, Otis and I had to run to town for a couple of errands and yes, there was some compact snow and ice on the side roads. What I don’t appreciate, though, is the truck telling me this. I can figure the road conditions out all on my own, thank you very much. At least the truck doesn’t verbalize this warning. The OnStar lady once talked to Randy and I and I had to be peeled off the ceiling.
On a sidenote ~ I am very impressed with the improvements that Apple has made to their Photos program. There is a lot more dog hair and dust on the instrument panel of the truck. With the new and improved editing features, I was able to remove some of the dog hair. Just some. because I wanted to make it look believable.
After a couple of plays in the snow, Roxy and Otis have the right idea. A nap.
