As the Christmas holiday draws near, I simply want to extend to all of you:
Hope Santa gets you all exactly what you wish for!
May you have the best holiday season yet!
Thanks for stopping by – have a great day!
Yesterday I personally had a great Christmas that I got to spend with Mom, 1/2 my siblings and their kids; and lots of presents, food and fun!
And today? Well, today is Boxing Day!
That sounds like it requires a lot more exertion than I can muster on the day after Christmas! haha!
Instead, I went a little more low-key than that and enjoyed some exploration in some nearby woods:
(talk about a walk in the park!)
and a quite a bit of this:
What a perfect way to spend the day after a holiday!
(PS: to those of you who celebrate Boxing Day, please don’t write and explain to me that it’s not about the sport of boxing… I promise I know that already… I’m just doing some wordplay. I know you’re surprised to read that!)
Enjoy the rest of the day ~ it’s almost the weekend!
After I dug out of the 6.5 inches of snow we got, Louden ventured out.
He did much better with the snow than last time ~ he actually romped around in it:
And gave it his stamp of approval:
(stamp ~ get it?! hehe!!)
But when the brutally cold wind whipped up and blew a little snow at him, he turned to me and voiced his displeasure:
I can’t blame him. I didn’t care for it at all, either. At the time the air temp was 3 degrees with a windchill of -17 degrees.
Yes, that’s MINUS 17!
…as in 17 degrees below zero!
…as in who wants to be outside in that anyway?!
Santa! That’s who!
One more shopping day until Christmas!
I looked back on the last week or so of posts and realized that they’ve mostly been of snow.
Add to that the current dreary, cloudy, rain/freezing-rain, waiting-for-six-to-12-inches-of-snowfall kind of day.
Then add to that a few family members and a friend who live in Florida that have called and asked “How’s the weather?” (snicker-guffaw) and “Is it sunny and 85 there today, too?” (did I mention snicker-guffaw?!)
And it makes a gal wax nostalgic for a short 6 months ago when I was lounging in the warmth of the Florida sunshine.
Again I want to make clear that I am not complaining about the current weather here (ok, maybe I am a little bit… I mean snow is ok but icy roads? that’s crap!) but even the photos of the blue ocean and sky and the sunshine are warming me up and putting a smile on my face.
Hope you all have a warm and happy Friday!
