|Chip, the old cement horse jockey, greets guests at the front door.|
Still no snow to mention
so far this winter at the PH,
but it is chilly
so Chip is bundled up a wee bit.

We were hoping for a dreamy
White Christmas this past week
but other than two slight
"dustings" in November
we've had no snow accumulation.
The chicken nesting bins at the back side door
got a little decked out
for the season --
now a bit of a fire-making station.
They are calling for possible snow
south of the city this week
but I don't think it will reach us here in
the far northern 'burbs.

Had thought about bringing Chip in
for the winter to hold guest towels in
the powder room, but he is so
unbelievably HEAVY and is
chipping so badly (thus the name)
that I decided to let him stay put.
Better get back to my post-holiday cleaning
and thank you note writing.
May have to have a little chocolate
or two (or four?)
with my coffee to keep me
for the tasks at hand.
Enjoy your day!
I have a New Year's Giveaway
planned for next week. Stop back soon
and check it out!
