Just in time, it is snowing. On Sunday we are to be having a toboggan party at a friends place down the road, been a little worried how we were going to accomplish that with no SNOW. But if I don't have a tall dark and handsome man come to the door I may not be able to go any way,Fuzzy might have to do ,well his hair isn't as dark as it used to be and he is not that tall but taller than I am so I guess in a pinch he'll do. So I imagine you are wondering what she's going on about. It is tradition from Scotland. Ya canna leave the house on New Years Day until a tall dark haired man comes through the door or you won't have a good year or something like that.Oh but life is good,it is snowing! OK so I know what everybody is thinking, give her a month and she'll be grumbling about the stuff and you are likely right but it just wouldn't be right without some, not as much as last year, just enough to make it post card pretty, cover up the brown stuff , make it all look clean.Now maybe I can get the snowshoes out and go give them a try, make a snow angel or tractor tracks, shovel and get rid of the Christmas 5 more or less. Darn I am almost giddy, doesn't take much to make me happy.
I have started on a few organising jobs that needed to be done, part of the kitchen cupboards are as they should be and I am slowly but surely getting the crap room (craft room) back in order after Santa's helper(me) was messing with it. The laundry room towel cupboard is done it looks so neat, hope it lasts. Need to have the house some what respectable before the first footin.
I have been hearing that some people are already been taking down their Christmas decorations and are glad to be done with it all, this makes me a little sad, and my own Mom was talking of it the other night on the phone, that she was thinking of doing it. I jumped up on my imaginary soap box and told her that it was to soon, that the wise men had not even got to Bethlehem yet, for goodness sake they where on camels and had to stop and tell King Herod on the way. We all get in such a hurry to put Christmas up that we seem to want it all to be over on the 26th,I know I should not lump everyone into that category that there are people out there who do enjoy it longer and make it last, so I will now step of my soapbox.But please think about it tell me your thoughts.
In my last post I mentioned what Fuzzy gave me for Christmas this year, I have a picture to show you. I love it and it works great. This year the girls and boys decided that we should not buy each other gifts, but everybody buy one gift for about $20 and we make a game of it. That we would only buy or make things for the grandkids. Well um I was doing alright with this till about a week before Christmas and I could not help myself, I made the girls each a gift and bought them PJs and got the guys something too. It just did not feel good until I did. The game was great and I ended up with some really cool baking things. It was so much fun watching them trying to steal the stuff from each other but in the end I think everybody got what they wanted and had a lot of good fun.
