I'd rather be in Southern CA...
It's now all of 15 degrees F. here in Parma...with the wind chill it feels like 4!!! Winter snow storm warnings through Wednesday morning...it won't stop snowing & now the winds are blowing in off Lake Erie.
It's 77 today in Corona, CA...headed toward a lovely 85. Sunny, of course. A little warm for December for some, perhaps...but perfect for my liking. The photo here is Sophie the Cat enjoying a little sun on our balcony, which faced West...if you look closely at the railing above her, you'll see it's almost Christmas 1999, as the garland with it's big C9 bulbs is up, complete with red velvet bows. December & Christmas as it should be.
I'm trying to get into the mood to shape & then decorate our Christmas tree here...it sure would be easier there with the windows open, sun shining & warm breezes. We have no sun, of course...it's Clevetown after all. Snow is still falling & blowing around. I'm keeping the curtains closed so I don't even have to look at it.
This is our front porch today...as "decorated" as it's gonna get...I'll bet you can't even see the big candy canes with their red velvet bows from the street today. What a pathetic place to live.
Have I told y'all lately how much Ohio sucks??? Hell has truly frozen over & we live in it.
I've always been an artist...from as far back as I can remember, I loved to create and share my art. My current passions include quilting, altered art, paper arts and making charms for jewelry.
I'm a CA girl at heart, having lived in San Diego & Corona, CA for most of my adult life, but now find myself in NE Ohio & not thrilled with that! You'll hear a LOT of whining about OH here...it's a nasty place to live.
I currently live in the 1954 bungalow that I grew up in with my sweetie & love of my life, Phil, and our very spoiled kitty, Sunny Cat. We miss our dear sweet Sophie Cat, but Sunny has brought new love into our lives. Now we've rescued 3 kittens that were born in our backyard, so Fluffer, Gracie & Peanut are also part of our family...and they're as cute as can be. More cats = more love! We're hanging in here & doing the best we can.
