Getting Ready for Winter

We got up early this morning, Jazz seems to think that 3am is the time for her to shake herself all over and come to bed with us. Then she proceeds to try and push both of us out of the king size bed--she sure takes up a lot of room for such a small dog.

The weather man is predicting historical, record breaking snowfall for tonight and into the weekend and as I write this, a light misty snow is falling. One to two feet of snow is predicted for our area and the weather people are warning that because we still have leaves on the trees, extensive damage may occur to trees and power lines.

Oh, and it was 22 degrees this morning. With all this weather talk in mind, I decided today might be the day to get some outside things done. The summer flowers bit the dust, they were very droopy this morning as cold as it was, so in the compost heap they went. I stored the deck furniture under the eaves of the house, blew the water out of all the water hoses and stored them and mulched some plants. We should be ready for old man winter.

And, as I have quilted everyday this week all day, I decided the house needed some attention so I vacuumed and did all that wonderful stuff that just somehow needs to get done--certainly not my favorite thing to do!

We are nice and warm, tucked in by the fireplace--life is good.
