Snowflake on Samsung One UI 1.5

These are the FOTD flowers I posted exactly one year ago, 4/14/19.

They look like white spider mums, and white lilies.

Funny, because I was looking for white flowers because we had some snow overnight!

This is the photo Cee provided:

It looks like a stark, winter scene with bare branched trees, and a snowy road going past.

This is my photo:

Our front yard tree, with bare branches covered in snow and ice, and the road in front of our house, which is snow-packed.

Christmas Memory # 14 – MMMBop & Snow

Christmas Memory # 14 – MMMBop & Snow Click to view

For the days up until Christmas I’ll be sharing some short memories of Christmases past that I remember.

This may be weird, but even on Christmas morning we sometimes listened to music, but not Christmas music. It was usually rock songs, of whatever music album, cassette, or CD that one of us had gotten as a present that year.

On this day, my daughter had gotten the Hanson CD with the song MMMBop as one of the songs. We all like this song, so we put it on while we were opening presents. We put it on repeat, so it played over and over while we were rocking out and singing along. We call this our MMMBop Christmas because of that.

It was pretty cool too, that just as we started with all this, it started snowing heavily. Now that in itself was wonderful and exciting. The snow kept coming all morning with huge saucer shaped flakes, filling up the yards and streets. By the time we had to drive over to my Dad’s house for lunch and the family get together, we could barely see the roads, but we made it.

Definitely not a typical kind of Christmas day, but very memorable.

The day before we had the record snowfall last week, I took the photo of Little Orange Kitty enjoying the sunshine. Then the next day, we had 10 1/2 inches of snow. Looking out back, there was Sister Cat, walking on the fence. She was meowing at me & trying to get brave enough to jump down in all that snow to come to the porch to get something to eat. She finally did, after walking back & forth for awhile.

Dear Diary – January 22 – 31, 1961

For those who haven’t seen my Dear Diary posts before, a little explanation. This is my actual diary I wrote in for a full year, when I was 10 years old. I wrote every day, sometimes a lot, sometimes a little, sometimes funny, sometimes boring, but it was all recorded. Names of relatives are only first initials with relationship in parentheses. I’ve typed the entries just as I wrote them, misspellings and all, but corrected in parentheses. More posts of Dear Diary can be found by using categories, or search box. Hope you enjoy reading my childhood diary! 🙂

Christmas, 2015,we had a blizzard here in our town. It was a mess for weeks. Our flights were delayed and cancelled trying to get back home. Don’t want to do that again!

There was one Christmas, probably 1997, that we had snow on Christmas day. Well, there might have been other times, but this time was a big one, too. Just as we were opening presents that morning, these huge snowflakes started falling, and before long all outside was a winter wonderland. Then we had to drive over to my parent’s house for the get-together with family.

One of the gifts to my daughter was, at the time, a CD of the songs by Hanson, one of which was “MMMBop”. You remember that one? I liked it then, and I still do like that song. Anyway, she put it on to listen to while we continued opening gifts. It was on repeat, so we heard it over and over for quite a while. Now we call it our “MMMBop” Christmas! 🙂

Look! Here it is now!

“MMMBop”, by Hanson, was released as a single from the album, “Middle of Nowhere”, in 1997. It was written by, Isaac Hanson, Taylor Hanson,and Zac Hanson, and is on the Mercury – Polygram label.
