It's certainly going to be a white Christmas here! We had quail feeding in our carport where the feeder hangs, cleaning up all the fallen seed, plus whatever I throw on the ground for the ground feeders. We've seen them passing through our yard but never feeding. They must be really hungry to hang out for a long while--they left when I went outside to throw more seed on the ground, and then came back!
Wednesday was a momentary break in storms and we went to town. We needed a few things, and I figured it would be our only opportunity. They've done a great job of predicting these storms and were right on again. It snowed Thursday, and yesterday it snowed all day. Dale braved the weather, shoveled a path to the garage (sewing room) and within a couple of hours it filled in. Highways closed again all around us! He walked to the post office, and came home with my order from Keepsake Quilting. Woo-hoo!
This last storm tracked more south, and so I-25 north of us was open and clear even on Raton Pass. Looks like we may be able to get to Colorado! I finished a couple of last minute sewing projects yesterday and baked bread. I blogged about this bread here, and it has become my favorite bread recipe, always consistent. Yesterday I substituted the butternut squash with sweet potato, and it came out just as good. This weather is certainly great for baking! Happy Holidays everyone!
