I see big, fat snowflakes outside my office window!

It is snowing! Since I spent over 40 years of my life living in southern California, I am in awe every time I see it snow. Now that we live in Oklahoma City, I have had it snow at my house every year. The back yard looks so pretty in the snow!

The fish pond is starting to freeze over. Our goldfish did fine last year, our first winter with the pond, so I am not (as) worried about them as I was last year.

I would have posted a picture of the snow, but it is too cold to go outside! It is 22 degrees F outside. Brr!

It’s supposed to snow today!

We are supposed to get the first snow of this winter today. We had a really hot summer here in Oklahoma City, and I’m ready for winter. Of course, I don’t have to go out and drive in the snow, or I would feel differently. I work at home, so I just have to see it snow out my office window.

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

My parrot has a favorite TV show!

This is true! My parrot, Rufus, has a favorite TV show! It is "America’s Funniest Home Videos". His favorite videos are those with animals. He laughs and laughs. He makes me and my husband laugh out loud. He is such a crack up!

Only other parrot lovers will believe me. The rest of you will just have to trust me!

Happy Thanksgiving!

I love this little prayer:

Thank you God for all that grows,
Thank you for the sky’s rainbows,
Thank you for the stars that shine,
Thank you for these friends of mine,
Thank you for the moon and sun,
Thank you God for all you’ve done!

Happy Thanksgiving everybody!

It is cold, rainy, windy and icky outside.

I am so thankful that I work at home! I’m looking out my office window and it looks really dreary. I’m so happy I don’t have to drive to work any more!

Don’t worry though, I paid my dues first! I drove to work for 30 years before I was given the opportunity to do my work at home. I used to work in an office with the same person who is my boss now. He asked if I would mind working at home. Mind?? Mind?? Heck no! I won’t mind working at home!

My boss works out of his home now, too. We use phone, email and fax to communicate. I draw construction plans with computer aided drafting, and I send my work to him in emails. We’ve been doing it this way for about four years. I like it very much!

Any way, I’m so happy I get to sit in my office and look at the cold, rainy, windy and icky day and I don’t have to drive it it any more!
