It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas...?

Better late than never I suppose.

The weather has been beautiful lately. Some rain but other than that it's been in the 50's and I can't even tell you the last time that I had on my winter coat. I usually wear a light SPRING jacket! :) But, it seems that this week I will have to dust off the old Columbia because it is finally snowing! The kids have missed the snow quite a bit since we moved from the U.P. but I haven't - much. I like snow as long as I can ski and snowshoe, but if I can't do those things than I don't have much use for it. I don't like shoveling it and I definitely don't like the cold that it brings. I haven't let the kids go out and play because it's a really wet snow and I would be surprised if it even stays very long - thank goodness!

And it all has to come in January, the time of the year that I start to get spring fever! I have been daydreaming about flowers and gardens and working at the greenhouse again. I guess I will have to just keep on dreaming!

We finally have some snow here. I didn't mind too much except for the fact I have to walk on the treadmill again instead of outside.

Snow...what is that??? Yesterday and the day before were gorgeous and now toady is chilly (in the 30 to low 40s).

We have snow too and bitter cold. It was -4 this morning. Snow isn't so so bad but the bitter cold no thank you! I am definitely daydreaming right along with you.

Hi Risa,

How's it going!? I'm very new to this stuff but Jamie inspired me so I thought I'd give it a shot. Re: the comment on kids...I think your son looks so much like you! I agree that my kids do look like me so I guess some people can see it and some can't, huh?

We've got snow too and cold....yuck! I liked the almost balmy temps we'd been having not too long ago!

I added you to my page too....my lsit grows! =) Take care!
