It finally snowed! There is a thin blanket of white all over the ground. It came down yesterday in swirls of snowflakes. And it was beautiful. It's not a lot, but it'll do for now. A white Christmas is wonderful.
I think my fatty cats think it's chilly in the house. I've caught them lying on their backs in front of the registers while the hot air is blowing. They get smug little grins on their faces when their wispy fur is being warmed. It's pretty funny.
C and I wrapped presents this weekend and put them under the tree. (Actually, C did most of the wrapping....he's better at it.) But they look so pretty under there. I can't wait to give them to people.
In other news, my new friend Katrina has written a wonderful little children's book and I am competing against some other artists to illustrate it. (I feel a little sheepish admitting that here...what if I jinx it??) But I did some sample pages and a character study for it and am ready to send it off to the publisher. I'm actually a little nervous. I'd love to do a kids book, and I have a wonderful opportunity here. I guess I can do nothing now but hope and try to think about other things.
One of which is that my brother proposed to his girlfriend this weekend. I am so happy for them. She is a sweet girl, and I'm so happy to have her as a sister-in-law. I hear she's bling-bling-in' it around town. (I haven't seen the ring yet.) Congratulations to them!
