Hiya! It is me Chance, it is finally my turn! Far Side says they named the freaking snowstorm Cleon..what kind of a name is that anyway? I can think of a different C word to suggest CHANCE!
It has been a stormy week. I only leave the yard to walk to the mail box with Far Guy. Far Side has been real busy ..not sure what she is doing but she has been busy upstairs. I think it involves cleaning and organizing and cussing. Cussing because of a glitch with her eBay account funneling her funds to a son in laws account because once upon a time he used her email address. I am not sure if they will ever get it straightened out.
She did play ball outside with me… as a reward after I walked her to the sauna to see if the little bird was still sleeping there. There is a little Finch that decided to sleep under the eave of the sauna. He or she has been there cuddled up in a sheltered area behind one of the posts. It wasn’t there..we have to go back and check at night…but the snow is way over her snow boots now..so she will have to shovel a path or find taller boots.
She shoveled for a long time yesterday..the patio…and it kept snowing all day. She will have to go out there for more glorious exercise again today.
The snow stick measured about 9 inches at 10 AM yesterday…and it kept on snowing. I tracked lots of snowballs in the house. The clean snow melts in puddles on the floor. Far Sides socks get wet and then she goes “EWWW..Chancey.”
We watched a bug out the window. Not sure what kinda bug it was..maybe it is a snow bug.
A very cold bug who we watched for a long time until he disappeared into a crevice. ( one of my tracks) So much for the afternoons excitement.
Far Guy worked real hard on the Christmas letter and Far Side says she will sleep on it…but it sounds pretty good to her…she only had a few edits. They are discussing a photo for the Christmas Card.
I am supposed to relay the countdown:
Gift count: two. Gifts wrapped: none. Cookies made : none. Cards written: none. Home made ornaments: Complete! Homemade gifts: in progress. Decorations…none except the snow outside. 20 days and counting.
