Ground Level Frost

Thought I'd photograph frost at ground level! This picture was taken on Tuesday, the 28th.

A Holly, Jolly Frosty Morn

It was a holly, jolly frosty morn and around 20 degrees F. The frost looked like snow on the hollies in my front yard.

Tuckered Out!

Even cats get tired of all the holiday activity! This kitty practically dove into a basket of clean towels and immediately fell asleep.

Covered Yet? (Camera Critters)

She used to frolic in flurry phenomenons. Now, she just sits amazed as if she is watching every snowflake, and she doesn't seem to mind sporting a little snow on her back.

See more critters that posed for the camera over at Camera Critters HERE.

A White Christmas?

Merry Christmas! Parts of Central Alabama may have an historic white Christmas today, and while our area should get some snowflakes, it's not too likely they will stick. This photo of the snow-sprinkled holly was taken in my yard a few years ago.

Today, we celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Peace on Earth, goodwill to all.

All Snug in their Beds

Tonight's the night, and what children wouldn't be more snug in their beds in these pajamas and gowns?  And in the middle of all the cozy sleepwear, I spy a really cool pair of cowboy boots!

Sweet Divinity

We southerners love our pecans, which add a tasty crunch to sweet divinity candy. I found these sweets at Selma's Holiday House.

Follow the Laser Light!

Some cats just don't see the point in chasing an elusive laser light on the carpet!

Four More Shopping Days

Four more shopping days til Christmas!
Shopping for the holidays this year has been either warm and rainy (above) or cold and windy (on which days I stayed home).

Deck the Halls

Deck the halls with boughs of holly, but please don't use this holly! Savannah  hollies line Selma's downtown, providing perennial Christmas colors. White lights are strung upon the trees for the Christmas season.

Watching You!

"You may think I'm asleep, BUT I've got my eye on you while you decorate for Christmas!"

I Love My Cat Stocking

Yes, Fluffy and Spotty and Princess and Miss Kitty, there IS a Santa Claus! Stockings for pets are big business, it seems.

Jams 'n Jellies

Dear Santa,
 All I want for Christmas is homemade jam 'n jelly from Holiday House, but hurry, 'cause there's only one more day til it closes!  Thanks! 
Love, Rambling Round

Holiday House at the Striplin Performing Arts Centre downtown annually benefits Selma's Old Depot Museum. It's filled with arts, crafts and homemade treats.

Christmas Caroler

While this year's Christmas tree has yet to be decorated, here's a picture of The Christmas Caroler, one of my favorite ornaments from my Tree of Christmas Past.  This one was handed down from my parents, and being a sentimental soul, I treasure it! Do you have your tree up and decorated yet?

Courtyard of The St. James

Before the current extreme cold weather, the courtyard of The St. James Hotel looked almost tropical.

Salvation Army Angel Tree

Christmas will be merrier for hundreds of children in Dallas County after all the Salvation Army Angel Tree tags were picked up to send to Santa!  This Angel Tree waited for Santa at the Selma-Dallas County Public Library.

Morning Sky (Skywatch Friday)

A red sky at morning is usually a warning of a storm on the way, and sure enough, Selma experienced heavy snow showers later this past Monday. The snow even stuck to trees and grass for awhile before melting.

More skies at Skywatch Friday!

Turning the Bridge

I've lived here more than three decades, but today was my first time to see the railroad bridge turn as a barge maneuvered through. The river pilot's expertise attracted a bit of attention from the riverbank as you can see men on the riverwalk (far left) watching below.
