Winter Wonderland!

Oh dear readers, it finally came! Snow. Right here in the South.

And nobody was more excited yesterday about this magical event then Ms. Jeannie.  Well except for the birds – they seemed positively thrilled with this wintertime treat too:) The bird feeder was aflutter with activity all day long.

As the snow snow started to accumulate and the sky grew darker – the cardinals came for a visit and decorated one of the crepe myrtles just like it was a christmas trees and they were the ornaments.

Nothing brings out of every detail in the yard like a little bit of snow…

The total accumulation was one inch, which is pretty paltry compared to our northern neighbors,  but when it only snows  once every 3 or 4 years here that seems like a blizzard 🙂

Ms. Jeannie believes that this was BoyO’s first introduction to snow.

Frankly – he didn’t quite seem to care for it so much –  preferring, instead, to dream about the snow here…

As you can see he has flawlessly worked his way from being a summer stray (okay stay but outdoor only, please!)  to  being an indoor kitty that now occasionally visits the great outdoors. How clever of him!  At least he has wonderful house manners:)

Ms. Jeannie hopes that everyone is having a wonderful start to the New Year. It’s been quiet on the blog all month as Ms. Jeannie has been especially busy this month working on her vintage book of the month club which now has close to 80 members. Goodness gracious. It’s fun to know so many new readers:)

In the next post – you’ll see that another of Ms. Jeannie’s wishes (in addition to a good snowfall!) came true this past Christmas thanks to the lovely and talented Mr. Jeannie. Stay tuned…
