Squirt Alert! Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs


Squirt has taken to waking up at about 4:30 am. He trots into our room and comes near me and shakes off. You’d have to be deaf not to hear it. Sometimes I think I’d like to ignore it, but I know he rises early for a reason; and I have a pretty good idea I’d regret not getting up to let him outside. It has been so cold the past few days, I haven’t had to worry about him running after trespassers. He goes on his mission and returns to the back door very quickly.

Once Squirt is up, he is up. And then we are up. The Memphis news is on by 5am and one of the first things they report is the anticipated weather. This morning the weatherman said that we may have freezing rain and sleet tomorrow. It snowed early this past Sunday morning. Where am I? This is not West Tennessee weather. By 6:30 or so the sun is beginning to come up and when I saw today’s early morning sky, I could only think “cloudy and a chance of meatballs”. The title of the popular children’s book and movie is appropriate for more than one reason. The clouds look like we really can expect something - and with all the Christmas food we’ll soon be eating.... well, what can I say? Meatballs won’t be falling from the sky, but there will be no shortage of food over the next couple of weeks.

And as for Squirt? Most of his day will be spent taking an extended power nap.

And the Mimi Pearl alert is this - my teaching schedule:
Beth’s Heirloom Sewing in Wetumpka, AL - Jan. 21 and 22
Children’s Corner School - February 4 and 5
Stitchin’ Post in Little Rock, AR - March 11 and 12

You may contact any of the above shops for more details.

I am so happy to see you back! I have missed you and Squirt sooooo much! I would love to go to one of your 'schools'. Just not close enough :(
Merry Christmas, Carole.
