It looks like Christmas out this morning. Snow fell for most of the day yesterday...leaving our part of the world in a blanket of white. As I look out, the sun is trying to come out and I can see sparkles on the snow. No footprints in our yard except the freshly plowed driveway and sidewalk. I'm up early and started doing the kitchen cupboards. After our celebration last Sunday, things were just stashed to get them out of the way. Today they are back in their places. A cup of coffee and a slice of pecan coffee cake helped as I worked away. Maybe I'll go down to the basement to tidy up there later on.
I'm going to put my two cents in on Carrie Underwood's performance in Sound of Music last week. She is so talented and took on something new for her. I was delighted to see her do this, because she seemed to be in a rut of singing songs that talked of two timing men and love gone wrong songs. She was able to show what she could do with her voice...in a new way. I'll have to admit that The Sound of Music is one of my favorite movies.....and my goodness Julie Andrews is tough to compete with. Why should there have to be a comparison? Two different performances....and Carrie did a wonderful job. I enjoyed her performance and really feel badly that so many are so critical. It seems that once a bad review is given so many jump on the band wagon...afraid to give a different opinion.
We'll have leftovers today...Our pot roast will give us one more meal...so I will have a little more free time today. I might just make a few more cookies. Those delicious coconut layer cookies with Eagle Brand milk.Then again...those would really tempt Joe and he's done so well with his diet.
We have been faithful with going to the pool three times a week, but with the roads the way they are this morning...we won't be going today. Each day we have that December 26th surgery looming in the back of our minds. This has been such a long wait. Joe won't be able to have anymore pain meds for two weeks before surgery.
I just saw a little chickadee flying up and down on the feeder...trying to get at the seed under the snow. First little footprints in the snow this morning. He's singing his little chicka dee dee dee song...flying from feeder to tree. I wonder is he trying to tell me something?
Well, that's about it...maybe more later. Have a great day.
