Good morning!

Thanks Sidney :-) That's a very festive photo :-) Glad your plants made it through the frosty spell!

It's raining and its windy . Im starting to sound like a broken record. lol Its 46F, 20 mph gusting to 31 mph from the south, just a light breeze compared to the past week. lol

Thanks Sharon, Marylyn, Adina and marsue.

Marsue the divinity sounds divine . yes, please, if you ever track down the recipe ;-)

Marylyn those littlest pet shop pets are just about the only thing they can think of these days. Selma doesnt want anything else for Christmas! lol Theyre cute but Id have thought shed be too old for them . seems its the latest craze in her class. Are your girls hooked too?

Kiska no actually hes never woken us up . seems hes always been very well behaved at our house ;-) lol. Very cool pic of the vaporized hot water :-)

Kelli thats the best time to get rain . Ive often wished it could be like that here ;-) lol Very beautiful photo. The hills look so naked, its hard to believe the grass will ever turn green, it looks dead. Is it an annual type of grass?

Dyson wonderful news! :-)

Nr. 8 is Skyrgmur.

Unlike Askasleikir wholl eat anything, hes very particular. He likes skyr,(an Icelandic dairy product) and thats about all hell eat. If he finds a skyr container, hell break it open with his fist and gobble it up until its finished or he cant eat anymore. After that he wont be going anywhere in a hurry because hell be unable to move and just whine and grunt and feel very sorry for himself. Hes a real hog ;-) lol

He brought the girls nail polish and lip gloss.

A note about skyr (pron. skir, i like in). Its a very thick yogurt type of product thats practically fat free and rich in protein. If youre ever in New York City and would like to try it, there are a few specialty cheese stores that stock skyr thats produced locally by an Icelander that lives there. The product is called Siggis Skyr.

Now I think Ill go and bake something ;-)

Hope you all have a great day!

Sidney Great start picture!
Deb Thanks! Is the elephant ear going to make it?
Kelli Thats funny! Here I was thinking you finally received a lot of rain and, well you did, but you didnt really. Any rain is good at this point. Interesting picture. I amazes me at how dry it is there. I do see some green though. Will the hills be green in the summer?
Ric Our weather changes daily too. They are saying well be in the low seventies heading into Christmas. Im hoping they are wrong!
Rann I had to look up littlest pet shop pets. They are so cute! Do you ever leave a container or ladle lying around for the girls to find when they wake up? Oh look Skyrgmur was here! LOL! Skyr sounds delicious and healthy! Yes, Im going to have to order some Skyr and have it sent to Florida! Ive already started looking it up! LOL!

Sylvester was "helping" me wrap presents last night.

Love that beginning photo, Sydney!
Deb--that EE is so cold it turned blue! LOL
Dyson, I am happy that you have been cleared to go back to work after the first of the year. Enjoy the rest of your "vacation".
Sharon, cats are so nosy! That is such a cute photo!
Rann, my sister has out-of-town company until after Christmas but once things are settled down around her house I will ask her to find the divinity recipe for me. I seem to have misplaced some of my more treasured recipes when we moved last year. I thought I had them on diskettes but couldn't find them when I looked.
I know the little girls are enjoying the nail polish and lip gloss from the latest of the trolls. My g'daughters always have a great time polishing their nails!
Sharon, you are complaining about 70* weather?
Pepper, do you still have snow and ice on the streets up there in KC?
BTW, I couldn't figure out how to send a photo from my email over to this thread. I wanted to show you all the photos from the ice storm that DH's cousin sent us. Can anybody help me with this?

Isabella, MO(Zone 6b)

Adina, I love the lights at your park--so pretty! Your friend's cactus is beautiful and at least your cactus is trying to make a bloom in time for Christmas! My cactus has about 2 dozen buds on it but none fully opened yet.
Kiska, just think--only a couple more days and you can start adding minutes to your day instead of taking away. Right?
Sidney, I tried saving the photo but it didn't work. Guess I need to try again. Thanks for the input.
Dee, I think Dyson and Deb would just love to have some of your rain. I am going to try to send them some of mine, too, as we have more rain predicted for tonight and tomorrow.

Georgetown, SC(Zone 8a)

Sydney: Love those froggy lights! Very cute.
Dyson: Hoping you get some measurable wet stuff.
Sharon: No, my EE won't be back til spring now. The 3-nights freeze did it in (along with my big old Musa). I didn't think it would be possible to wrap presents with a cat in the room! LOL. Hope you get the Christmas temps you want. (Just keep that cold air down there, thank you!)
Marsue: I love that version of White Christmas. I have it on an album somewhere. One of the old Motown groups if I remember. Cute animation - love the 4th reindeer!
Dee: OH yeah! Send it! Start dancin. :)
Adina: The park lights are nice. I love the dangling lights in the trees.
Rann: I thihnk Skyrgamur needs some Pepto! LOL.

Currently 60F and clear...again, but no freeze tonight. Low of 36F predicted.
High on Christmas is expected to be high 60s, but first I'm celebrating the SOLSTICE in only 2 more days!! And even better, we have a 50% chance of rain the same day. Hope springs eternal!'

Lovely sky this morning,
Deb

We got some more rain yesterday evening and overnight. Over the two days we got almost an inch of rain.

We went to the Arboretum today. Some people were filming there (movie, t.v. show, or commercial) and they had a live lion.


Rann, you asked about the grass. The grasslands out here consist mainly of wild oats and mustard, which are both non-native annuals. There is also a smattering of other native and non-native annuals. They all die out in the summer. In general, if there has been a decent amount of rain, the grasslands turn green in January and stay fairly green into June. Last year was one of the driest years on record so we didn't have much extensive green. Here is a fairly good representative picture taken probably around 1990. This area is a mile or two south of where I was the other day. That box canyon that we walked into is probably just on the other side of the ridge in the background.

Marsue, we still have ice and snow here though it turns into slush during the day and freezes again at night. The main roads are clear and most back roads are somewhat clear. Mine still has icy spots due to heavy shade but only a few. Our parking area at work is still icy and a coworker can't keep his car in place there anymore due to the ice. It slides down a bunch everyday. lol. I told him he needs to learn to park. lol

(Zone 3b)

minus 2*F; supposed to get colder tonight.
marsue~~the coming longer days are indeed very near. A turning point and is considered the middle of winter.
rann~~love the photo, showed my DH and he liked it, too. When he asked a few days ago where I want to go for next year's anniversary, I said "Iceland"...kinda took him by surprise, I think:))
Kelli~~what a pretty location; the photo is beautiful; glad you had some rain.
ric~~what a change in the forecast; perhaps they're still wrong and you'll have a white Christmas after all.
Deb~~I too, hope for rain for you and that area~~the sky is gorgeous.
adina~~looks so pretty there at the park; at least your cactus is trying.
pepper23~~wow~~still a mess and more winter to come....
Snowdrifts on a nearby lake today.

Yep, more weather to come and possibly a white Christmas!

Lebanon, OR

TRust me I wish I could send our rain to all the areas that have drought...we would gladly. We are about 10" over normal to date since 10-1 this year...so you know we have received alot.

Love the Alaska pictures!

I will try to get out if not raining and post a picture of something out there

Hang in there guys.

Deb, Love those Clouds! and such a blue sky! :) Hope you get some rain!
Dyson, What was your total amount the other day? We got 1" & the rain-o-meter is now frozen!
Marsue, Thanks for the really neat Christmas wish! :D
Rann...I'm Lovin' The Trolls! :D
D, Please send some of the rain to Deb! But I'm hopin' that Dyson will get some of the snow, since he will "be home for Christmas!" :D

Well, The tree that Garrett got for us wouldn't stand up! I think the base was a little small for the stand. We tried tying it down w/ no luck, so we went to Lowe's (who was having a sale) & purchased a "fake" tree. It's the first one we have ever had! We consider it "going green".

The current...back to normal.

Yesterdays intermittent sleet / freezing rain did not add to the contents of the rain gauge, it is still at 2.4 inches. It was just enough to put a light coating of ice on the porch for a couple of hours. And it made working on the car miserable.

Hi everyone :-)

It's cloudy, a bit breezy but not raining at the moment, 48F. Wind from the south at 22 mph, gusting to 33 mph.

Kelli - thanks for answering my question. That's a beautiful photo. What a difference! It's hard to believe it's the same area.

Ric- wow - I thought our weather fluctuations were hard to keep up with! lol Hope you get a white Christmas :-)

Sharon - lol, no I haven't gone through the trouble, but I know some people do ;-) lol The girls have gotten notes from a few though and they save those ;-)

marsue - whenever you have the time to track down the recipe is fine ;-) No worries :-) Yes the girls do love to polish their nails ..... Hildur Eva's so happy to have her own now so she won't have to borrow from Selma. lol

adina - thanks :-) Your friend's Christmas cactus is gorgeous! Such a pretty color. If it makes you feel any better, mine doesn't have any buds so yours is doing better! ;-) lol

Debi - I think you might be right. lol

kiska - thanks. I do hope you get a chance to visit some day :-) That's a beautiful photo :-)

D - seems like we're in the same boat. Combined precipitation(rain) for Sept/Oct/Nov for my area was 17.7 inches and December has been way above average too so we're probably close to 20" by now ........ maybe more ..... We've had enough already! lol

Nr. 9 is Bjgnakrkir and he just LOVES sausages! There's nothing that could get between him and a good piece of sausage. He's quite the gymnast and can climb anything to get what he wants ;-) lol

He also knows how to impress and brought the girls 2 more littlest pet shop pets - they were thrilled :-) lol

The forecast is wet until Sunday - then it looks like we could actually get some snow :-) So there's still hope! lol

Have a great day everybody :-)

Hi Rannveig
We never hear about your weather in OR, love to hear and see the weather in all over the world and land

Not raining this second but suppose to in a bit. Right now it is 37F...and feels colder

Kelli; was that the Arboritum in Arcadia? Used to be the old Lucky Baldwin Estates? I used to live close to them and loved them. Went there many a day but we were on a permnant pass in the good old days, never had to pay to see the lovely estates and go to the sales, but now of course we do and it will always be worth it.

D



Sochi, Russia

Rann! That dude in your last posting remindes memyself right now. Well, I'm just fed up with the city life and I'm going to jump into the train to escape to my Southern estate. With all the nature amenities there.
Your word skir precariously reminds me the russian word [s i (hard sign) r], which means exactly cheese.
Expect more southern weather updates, and pics of the Nature.
Ye'all are just amasing!

Adina The lights at your park are very festive! At least your cactus is trying. Is it getting sunlight?
Kelli Thats a beautiful picture of the canyon.
Ric YAY? Snow!
Pepper Sounds like your roads are awfully slick now. Be careful.

Dyson Is it dark?
Rann- Bjgnakrkir is quite the acrobat! Thats a hysterical picture! I know the girls just LOVE him for the additional littlest pet shop pets.
Juri Thats a lovely picture of the misty mountains! Where was that taken? Cant wait to see your Southerly pics!

We didn't get as much rain as predicted. The system moved in a more Northerly direction. We did get 1/4" of rain over night. I'll take it. It's pretty windy now.

I've had some kind of a virus the last couple of days and haven't felt very well. Headaches, nausea, dizzy...

Good morning!

We had more rain and wind last night, nothing drastic though. Now it's wet and fairly calm, light breeze 6 mph from the south and 41F. Today is winter solstice so tomorrow we'll start gaining some light :-) Today's sunrise will be at 11:22 and sunset at 3:29.

Nr. 10 is Gluggaggir. He's a nosey fellow who peeps through windows looking for something worth having. If he sees something he fancies he'll usually try to get it at a later time. Kind of like window shopping .... ;-)

He brought the girls multi-colored glitter pens and more pets (the trolls bought a value pack of pets so this will be a recurring theme until Christmas ;-)) lol

Unfortunately both the girls came down with a fever yesterday, so they're both sick today, their first day of Christmas vacation ...... Hildur Eva's feeling much better already so I hope it'll all be over before Christmas!

Juri - I can't wait to see some photos from the south! :-) Skyr is actually sometimes classified as a kind of cheese ..... it's somewhere between cream cheese and thick yogurt (except it's fat free).

Kelli - nice photo of the gorilla

Debi - LOL that's a good one!

Pepper - wow a heat wave! Will it cool down again before Christmas?

Sharon - sounds like the same things that's been going around here - Selma's been complaining about headaches for most of December and I've lost count on what number cold I'm on now. Had the headaches last week ...... Sure hope you'll feel better soon!

Have a great day everyone!
