We made it! We lived through the sleet storm (there ain't no freakin' ice - it's all tiny ice pebbles, which is really neat!). I took some photos, and they'll have to do for my January front/back yard meme. Sorry it took so long, Dlyn!

Yes, it's sideways. I've tried everything to make it not so. But whadda ya think of my wind chimes? They're a gift from my grandmother. I squishy heart them. All of our bedrooms are on the back side of the house, so they sing us all to sleep at night. Here in Oklahoma we get plenty of wind all year. It's a beautiful thing.
And isn't my twirly hummingbird pretty? One of my all time favorite aunts knows that I collect hummingbirds and gave that to me when we moved to Tulsa. The wind catches it and it sends sparkles through my dining room window. I less-than-three AND squishy heart the copper twirly!
Hope you're all staying warm! I had a busy day yesterday. Today promises to be even better, having the kids home all day. Lots of sewing to do.
Until I write again ...
P.S. For an interesting take on a Maya Angelou poem, pop over to MUD's. He's a cranky fellow at times, but I can't help but agree with much of what he says in his response to the poem. You may need to scroll down to find the Maya post. And I love that he has 41 years of wedded bliss to back his argument. Though I can't quite agree with the part about the shoes over $50 ...
Oh, and for my gentler readers, he drop an f-bomb.
