Sunshine in the Snow

Mom left her day hunting gig early yesterday and got home before it started snowing. She made some bread, and then started working on this yellow Sunshine quilt for Mr Karate. She says between now and New Year's the only sewing she is doing is stuff she wants to do.

We got about 8 inches of snow. That's almost as tall as I am! And we will be getting more tomorrow. One thing is for sure, we will have a White Christymas!

**Update, 3:55 PM Saturday afternoon... We got about 12 inches of snow, and it has been snowing lightly ALL DAY! We are supposed to get about 8 more inches tomorrow and another storm is headed our way for Christymas Eve!

I am no longer dreaming of a White Christmas!

(Because I don't need to dream, that's why!)

Mom made bread yesterday, too! Our Grampy loves fresh bread better than anything!

One of our Aunties works at UNH. She said they closed the campus again for a snow day and told her to stay home yesterday! She was very glad to oblige! Stay warm, Millie!

Hi Millie,

I'm glad you are a indoor kitty now. With the snow almost as high as you are tall and more coming you might get buried in it if you still lived out side.

You would disappear in that snow!
Stay inside where it is cozy and warm.
PS you are on High Five Saturday today, stop by if you have time.

And a Merry Furry Christmas to all of you!

KidBean wanted to know if that was a remote-controlled Millie.

I'm not allowed to say what I was thinking...>:)

We are glad your mum got home before the snow. Being indoors is the best place to be when it is cold and snowy.

Hi Sunshine! We got 12 inches of snow, I am glad I am inside!

I’m passing along to you an award for your ‘attitude’, drop by and pick it up.

Good for your mom! She deserves some time to just do what she wants to do. She has done so much for so many!

We hope you will be safe and warm and that the storm cause you any major problems -- like not electricity.

PS - We like what you-know-who did to the statue's hat. Nice decorating. hehehe.

Hi Millie,
That sound nice, being inside with the smell of fresh baked bread. We love quilts and have one of our own :-) We haven't got snow here, but a storm blowing up from the west. Nice to be inside. Stay warm!

Merry Christmas
Cliff and Olivia

Ohh you girls stay in and keep warm and toasty. Fresh bread sounds lovely and the sunshine quilt is gorgeous.

Big smooches.

Holy - smokes Millie!!

I's sooooo glad that I'm a California kitty. We had lots of nice sunshine today and I took a nice bath/nap in it.

My mom is droolin' on the keyboard over the thought of fresh bread...with butter..all hot and warm and yum!

I, personally, would rather eat a two-day old salmon, but that's just me.

Cat said...

That quilt looks nice and sunny. Something pleasant for such miserable weather.

I can sympathize with you and your mom. We're having a lot of snow here in NJ too and the kitties are starting to demand their heated kitty bed.

DaisyMae Maus said...

Mom didn't make anything ... But our gramma made fresh caramel corn. Yum.

Enjoy your snow, Millie. We're gonna get rain on Monday.


Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

We is in da same boat Millie...snow, more snow and den...more snow and blowing winds and freezy temperchurs! Ack, it's not even da offishul start of winter yet!

Sparky said...

Wow, that's a lot of snow! And to think our mom was complaining b/c we had a few days of heavy rain this week!

We really love the yellow quilt though - it makes us smile.
