Misc weather blogging

The heavy snow collapsed part of the red, despicable hedge.
I suppose a bird could sneak under the snow to get into the bluebird house for shelter.
The junco doesn't need snowshoes.

More Friday cat blogging

PuddyTat in her box.
Little One on the cathouse roof which has become Dude's personal space. Dudie doesn't look pleased and LO looks apprehensive.

Great year for ice. Lousy year for roof.

Friday cat blogging

Tom headed for a sniff but Tim discouraged him.
Tom and PuddyTat are watched by Little One.
Little One is getting to be a big boy. He also seems healthy now with fewer fleas for some reason. He seems to have a very feminine head for a boy cat.

More birds


This is the Curves I go to. Not many of us there yesterday when I was. The megaphones along the ceiling on the left represent women who have attended more than 400 sessions. I have one of them. A couple of ladies are beyond 2000, I believe. The wall on the right has news about members.

A New Year Prayer for some of us...

God, grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
The good fortune to run into the ones that I do,
And the eyesight to tell the difference.

More snow photos

I walked up to get the mail and took some photos along the way.
Our road looking toward town.
My neighbors' house. Santa is still on the porch. The pole leaning against the swing blew down in a windstorm a week or so ago. It used to hold a flag.
A dock belonging to the people who were going to build on this lot but bought a house up the road. This lot is now for sale again. Yea.
Snow on lilacs.
Looking up my driveway to the big house.

This was taken earlier. The snow is now to the top of each tread.

And at home

So far the temporary cathouse cover is holding up. Praying it continues to do so. Glad it is channeled plastic rather than the usual shower curtain stuff.
Little One visits Dudie every day. Here he watches the rest of the world from the cathouse roof. He and PuddyTat are the only cats I see out and about. She leaves if anything unusual happens. She is still very antsy from when I took Little One to the vet.

Went to church slowly

It was a little slippery this morning but the roads were navigable with care. The snow wasn't blowing as much as it was New Years Day. 21 others made it to church which surprised and pleased us. The photo, by the way, is a color photo. Certain Christianists would love the whole world to be black and white all the time. I'm happy it isn't even tho I love snow more now that I'm retired.
