I am sitting here looking out the window at ........... no snow.  At least hardly any.  The entire mid-Atlantic and northeastern area of the country is seeing blizzard conditions, but here along the coast in southeastern Delaware, nothing.  It did start out with some snow during the night, high winds, then rain.  There is a dusting of snow out there, but that is it.  A few miles north and a few miles west of my house -- plenty of snow.  It will ice up tonight which should make driving treacherous.

Christmas is around the corner.  Decorating: done.  Shopping: done.  Wrapping: not done.  Baking:  not done and may not be done.  I hate to bake even though I love to cook.  I will have to make a pie for Christmas and I may make a batch of Tollhouse cookies (no chocolate chips for my husband --- yes, really).

My daughter and her husband and my grandsons will be arriving from Massachusetts on Tuesday and can stay until Christmas Day at which time they will fly out to Texas to be with his family.  Meanwhile, I will be babysitting my granddog.

Update:  We got a little more snow at dinnertime, but nothing to compare with other areas.  I found this photo in my saved photos from a few years ago.  I see I had long hair and Beau looked younger so it was probably three years ago.  Obviously, we had a decent snowfall then!

NOTE:  I have unfortunately had to utilize Comment Moderation on my blog.  I have had several weird messages left and want to edit them before they appear.  I see now that the comment moderation is not working.  Always something.

I'm sorry you're getting all the weird comments. A friend had that happen recently. Someone hijacked a person's blog commenting ability and started sending nasty comments to others including my friend. Sad huh?

I hope you stay safe on the icy roads. We would get freezing rain in Oregon--really treacherous.

Merry Christmas!

Too bad that some people think something like that is funny. I would be happy to send you some of our snow. Hope your day was happy, so nice you got to spend time with family.
