Day 2 of Snowmageddon 2019

I love all this snow! I know most people love summer but I love winter, as long as it doesn't get under 30 degrees. Then I don't like it. We woke up to a wonderful 15 inches today and it is still coming down. I made paths for my dogs to be able to go the bathroom. This is one of the biggest snowfalls we have had in a while and I absolutely love it! And please remember to feed the birds! I love watching them at the feeders!

January 2019

So far, January has been a roller coaster of temperatures! January 7th was almost 70 degrees! Today is in the low 30s and snow. A lot of snow and in a short time too! It is supposed to snow all night and then a couple more inches tomorrow too! I love snow! It is so beautiful and my husband started the fireplace. It has been a lovely day, for me! Not the dogs. They had their annual checkup and shots. Poor Jake has panic attacks at the vet. But I am happy to report, a large bump on Dudley's side is only a fatty benign growth. We love that grumpy old dog! Fatty growths, bad breath and all!

Christmas 2018

Yesterday, we took my brother to the train and today I took my sister back to St Louis. Below are photos from Christmas as well as earlier in December. But I made it through another Christmas and after tomorrow, I've made it through 2018! I had a lot of wonderful things happen this year! I got a job I loved, I got to see my brother twice this year, (normally it is only at Christmas), I visited my sister in Maryland. (I had never been to Maryland before) and I got to go on my first, ladies only, camping trip. All in all, it was a good year! Hope yours has been good too!

Holts Summit Christmas Parade 2018

It was a chilly 34 degrees but sunny day for the Christmas parade.  This year there were 3 marching bands.. I admit, I'm like a little kid on Christmas morning, when it comes to marching bands. I love the energy of the bands! The grandson made a haul on candy! Great parade & we finished it off with hot chocolate to warm us.
