And Santa brought me my gift.
I love snow. Love, love, love it. I love how it covers all the landscapes imperfections, blanketing everything in a soft white cover. The air is so crisp, the sounds muted, and it epitomizes the feeling of the season.
Honestly, it's all I wanted for Christmas. And, yes, Christmas is still 5 days away, but I'm hopeful it'll stick. The weather is supposed to stay cold, so no melting. I don't need snow to fall on Christmas - actually I'd prefer if it didn't since we go to my mom's house Christmas afternoon, but I like having it on the ground.
And so do my dogs. They keep begging to be let out. So, we indulge. Vixen is the red one, Raven the black. I gave Vixen to the kids for Christmas six years ago, and Raven came to us the following February for my birthday. We love our girls. Poor Pagan wants to go out, but with all the feral cats right next to the house, it's really not an option. But she loves looking out the window, as you can tell.
So, I'm all set for the holidays. My shopping is done, my book signings are done, and I've already gotten my present.
All I have to do is finish editing I Dream of Genies to get it to Deb by the 31st.
Next contract (God, Deb and Dominique willing), no more end of year deadlines. LOL.
Merry Christmas and happy holidays!
