WHOOPIE! I got SNOW!

Pull up a chair and grab a cup of Java for a cozy chat about what's on your mind and what's happening in your neck of the woods. This is a strictly for fun non-gardening topics.

Hah!
So now your entrance hall will be looking like mine, Liz.

A huge pile of rags to wipe feet and underbellies with, a dry mop to chase soggy footprints around the house, another rag to wipe down appliances after a shake-off, and the washer and dryer running non-stop to clean stinky, soggy poochie bedding. The only season I like better, is mud season. laf!

I'll be keeping an eye out for your post of snow angels, Missy!

Such lovely dogs, Liz!...great pics, they cheer me up. So....is the daily snow 'walkies' a good antidote for this S.A.D. I'm now in the throes of, do you think? I haven't been able to venture out of my driveway, not sure why.....loglegs might have something to do with it. And hubby won't let me have a dog, just 3 cats, and they won't go far in the snow.... :roll:

Keep those lovely snow pics coming, plz!

Yes, a daily walk would be good. Get hubby to walk with you, walking by oneself ALL the time isn't any fun. Go out when the sun is still in the sky. Vitamin D is good for a person and we don't get enough of it in the northern hemisphere. We need to take advantage of all we can get.

Miss Molly the Mop, you look gawjus©sue and as for you, little man Cordy, you're sensational as ever. And this observation has nothing to do with Cordy's mirror image of Jack, due to his being wheat-coloured and Jack is salt and pepper. Your patio chairs' fun gem colours decked out in Snow are just so YOU!!

I expect Christmas spirit to hit sometime Monday. Nuttin' to do with the weather. laffs Chuckling heartily at our Inge's response. Does she know dogs or what?

Abundances of love to dearest Tante on Earth,

Update:

Two dogs in pics were Cordy and KILEY, not Molly...Molly is now only dog who will willingly go outdoors. Cordy says he doesn't "have to" and Kiley says "Dog made wee wee pads, I am NOT going out."

Trailblaze, I am beginning to think that NOTHING is good for SAD, except the arrival of afternoon. Discovered last night that Welbutrin is a no no for me, bad reaction to Zyban years ago. But yes, that daily walk is a lifesaver. I understand loglegs.

Walkies by MYSELF are wonderfully cheering and uplifting, Eeyore, and good for what ails me!

Inge, aha, now you admit it! You love mudseason! I don't mind the snowpups actually, fresh clean snow does melt, just NOT in my bed, please. And yes, towels at the doors...but MY bed will not fit in dryer, demmit!!!

Earwig/Testing, you may hereby have any more snow that I'm supposed to get. Minus 8 here, lovely sunshine, those blue skies, and fresh white snow...beautiful...but hard on the hummingbirds.

Smitty...HELLO! and thank you!

Shikea, me too, me too! they always make me laugh.

Hugest of hugs to you DEAR NIECE...keep your pecker up, sweet thang!

Pansy, a picture for you!

Dear Pansy,

What makes you think that I could get up, even with help?
