Strange Christmas Weather

I awoke this morning to SILENCE! I jumped out of bed and went to take care of the bird feeders.  Boy they must be hungry... The wind had finally stopped howling and the rain had ceased pelting!  All I can say is I'm glad I didn't have to shovel it!  The rain and winds have been here for a week....all I could think about was the poor birds.  I saw one wind battered  Blue Jay beat his way to the feeder and grab one peanut and the poor little Juncos would brave the wind and rain to feed on the seed that I had put on the ground.  But this morning no wind and the blue sky is starting to break through and lo and behold the six Mourning Doves showed up for breakfast along with four Blue Jays, a few Juncos and of course the Crows......

Have been doing mostly crochet since the holidays began doll blankets, throws and Christmas Scarves....today I get back to the hooking....I have one unfinished project that is on my radar....and a few designs in my head.

Here is my latest completed piece...  Sleigh Bells Ring--

Hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday and best wishes for the new year!


  1. Beautiful, Paula....We have had those high winds and rain as well....seems more like Easter than Christmas..Enjoy your hooking...don't know when I will get started...

  2. Beautiful mat. On the west coast, we finally have abit of snow on the ground but only just today and yesterday; before, like you, wind and rain. Happy New Year Paula!


Love hearing from you!
