We had snow flurries here on Monday. It started out softly with a few flakes falling. I went outside and took a few pictures. A leaf in the grass with tiny snowflakes caught my eye.
Soon the flakes were coming down larger and faster and I snapped this shot of the Hawthorne tree across the way from our house.
Just an update on the telephone service. - A man came out on Monday to look at the lines. He fiddled around for about 20 minutes and came inside to check our phones. Said he thought the problem was in the "main line" and would have to go back to his office and have other repair people come back on Tuesday to correct the problem. Good Grief, we already knew the problem was in the "main line" back on Friday of last week when we called.
Oh well....I ended up calling back on Tuesday after bowling and telling the lady who waited on me that someone had better be out to fix the line or I would call back the next day and would be "less happy" then I was when I called. About an hour later they showed up and fixed the problem.
I did get photos of the first guy on Monday working on the line (he really didn't do anything to fix them though.) I just like the pictures.
Through the window of our front door.
I opened the door for this shot. As you can see the sky was clear after that morning snow storm passed by.
I went for a quick walk around the block this morning and snapped a few shots to share.
Out back before I left on the walk this little fellow was a chattering away.
He decided to come down the tree a little closer....
Good thing I left peanuts out for him.
Saw this lovely red holly bush with the sun shining on it. It looked cheerful. If you look carefully you'll see bits of frost on the leaves.
It's been (bone chilling) cold here though the last couple of days.
How about the creek nearby....
Inside however it's nice and warm and our "ginger" cats, Harley and Captain Cuddles enjoyed a nice little snooze on the couch.
All is well in their world. - Again I want to wish everyone who visits a very HAPPY NEW YEAR and thank you all again for being a special part of my life with your wonderful blogs and friendship.
Off to buy goodies for tonight....see you all next year!
