The frost on whatever there is once the pumpkin isn't available for poetic commentary. Popped out with the dogs this morning to see how the yard looks. Shiny and glittery. Should melt soon, I see the neighbors roof is no longer white.
Although it's kidstuff to all of you facing the wintery storms elsewhere, its been record cold here in the sunshiney state of CA. Last night the news warned of treacherous road conditions today, black ice.

I'll be taking Frankie home today. I think this is the longest she's stayed home in a couple of years and it's been a treat, even if we were sick. Last night was the Christmas dinner at the complex Grammie lives at, and they have a standing date. But today she's got to get back.

We're planning a little lunch at Toasties and maybe even a trip to Back Porch Fabrics, then I'll try and beat the rain home.

Have a glittery day my sweet peoples. xo

It's crazy out! Took forever to get the frost off my car this morning. I think they make something for that--some sort of scraper? I'll have to look into that. My car says it was 27 out. TWENTY SEVEN, PAM!! And it shows a snowflake symbol. I called Eric to ask what that means and he says "that it's really cold". THAT'S what German engineering gets you, my friend!

Where is Al Gore when we need him? We got a few more inches of snow last night and more to come! I hope you don't have too far to go with Frankie - that black ice is awful stuff! And a trip to the fabric store is the best medicine of all! P.S. You might pick up an ice scraper for Elizabeth while you're out - LOL!

The pictures are pretty, however you are correct... we are going to get about 12 inches, yes 12 inches of snow tomorrow. They are forecasting about 1 - 2 inches per hour. Hubby has decided to work from home rather than trying to battle the roads. Good plan!! I wish it was only the lovely frost you have. Oh well! Be safe on the roads.

Drive safe! I have been checking out the winter photos on blogs....the ice and snow is amazing isn't it.....oh and the frost of course....I think we are looking at 28C for Christmas Day (I think that is about 82F) which is going to be very pleasant! Better than 100F!

We have snow, but not as bad the the east. Seattle got bombarded and pretty much shut down. It is 26 here too. But, I have been playing with fabric and taxes (sigh).

Isn't it fun to see all the places that are getting the frost & snow. . . where it rarely goes?! Makes for a fun Christmas season!. . . (well except for the block ice stuff. . . that's just not fun anywhere. . . any time!) It's been so chilly here. . . I had to get Bailey a sweater! Stay warm PKM! xo. Bren

Trade ya! I don't know how much snow we got yesterday because I don't want to know. It's a load. At least 10 inches. I am in denial. I am sure the denial will end momentarily as I head out to work. And find out that, indeed, my windshield wipers are broken. Safety first!

It is as if fairies dusted your garden.
Hope you are feeling better. I have had the cold too, and the worst of it is the lingering cough. Hack hack hack.

I want to be you!! Not for the weather, we have plenty of that here, but for the darling stuff you have been working on!!

You guys do the greatest things! How inspiring. Maybe someday....

Have a wonderful Christmas, Kiddo--

Your frost pictures are so pretty! I think it's great when California gets cold because it helps get you into the seasonal spirit.

Except I hope it didn't ruin your pretty lettuces!
