Only in Maine. The last week has proven to be a meteorologists delight with the weather changing minute by minute. We started out with a snow day which the kiddoes loved, nothing like a day off from school to frolic in the snow. Then we had rain, rain and more rain which took all that beautiful snow away and left in it's wake flooding! I had to go a different route to get to my appointments as numerous roads were flooded here in town. Next we had 50* temperature which was warmer then where my Snow Birds are in Florida! Last night things changed again and we have snow again with more coming down all the time! Yay!
The squirrels were tunneling through the snow to get the peanuts that I throw out for them. I was taking these pictures through the glass so they aren’t really crisp but the squirrels had the cutest snowy faces.
The turkeys were around too, scratching away like a bunch of chickens in a barnyard. I need to make a run to the feed store today to stock up on their grain. I counted 37 this morning. The flock is growing! Daily. Hourly.
I had a fun surprise the other day when a package arrived in the mail from my buddy Needled Mom. It's a Mug Rug and isn't it the cutest thing?! Great for your hot chocolate, tea or coffee with a place to put your gingerbread cookie on the side! Thank you NM, I love it!!!! :o) These little rugs seem to be so popular right now and some even have a little pocket to put the new tea bag in. You can make them any color or for any season, there are lots of patterns on the Internet.
I have hit an all time low. I say this quite regularly these days. I was so excited to be going to a Christmas party at Gillette Stadium last night and had my camera battery charging in hopes of getting some wonderful photos to post. My camera was beside my purse which was on the kitchen counter by the door so that I could grab it on my way out, which I did.
We arrived at the party and were greeted by some of the little cheerleaders (and I mean little!) so I told the Hubs to stand there with them so that I could get a picture. He didn't argue.
I pulled my camera out of my purse and tried to turn it on and it wouldn't budge! I tried again. No luck. You guessed it, the battery was in the charger at home…………Waaaaaaaaaa!
All was not lost as there was a photographer there so she took some pictures for us which will arrive in a few days but I would have taken a lot more……
Had fun meeting some of the players. I like Vince Wilfork and he was there so I got a picture signed. You see these big men on the field being very intense so it's fun to see them in real life, smiling and being so nice. This guy is a great big teddy bear!
I got some other pictures signed, no not Tom Brady, he wasn't there. Sigh……..
I'm still working on decorating the house. I love to decorate so it isn't a chore. Taking everything down, now that's a chore.
Saturday and Sunday nights we had our Christmas program at church. We put up close to 20 trees on Friday! I didn't take any pictures during the program but here are some shots as we put the trees up. The sound board or maybe it's called the light board could change the colors on the trees, make them dim, blink, off and on from the sound room. It was just beautiful and the real meaning of Christmas rang true all evening! The church was packed both nights. :o)
Guess that's it for today. The sewing machine is calling my name as I have a couple projects to finish up. Hope you are all enjoying this holiday season! :o)
