'Tis the season, I guess, but wow am I a busy girl this week! I've played in snow (pitiful amount though it may have been), frozen but behind off (it's 23 degrees right now), I've gotten older (jury is still out on the "wiser" part...), been taken to lunch (twice!), gone shopping and worked at the Christmas Shoppe at Kelton's school. All this and it's only Tuesday night!
Rumor (and the Weather Channel) has it that another snow front will be arriving around 7AM tomorrow. It will turn to freezing rain by mid-day and then back to snow. We have the potential of getting up to 6" of snow though honestly, I would be thrilled to have a solid 3" which would be perfect for building snow people. :) (And yes, I know for many people this doesn't sound like a big deal weather wise but for this area, it's huge. And honestly, I would much rather live in an area where snow (and for that matter clear blue skies *grin*) are special events worth savoring and enjoying. I love that the busy lives we all lead slow down and we take time out from the same ol' same ol' sameness of life. Call us weather wimps if you must - I call us lucky. Lucky it isn't commonplace. Lucky because we get so have life come to a halt for a few hours or days while we enjoy the snow. )
The down side to that is the whole "I've been working at the Christmas Shoppe at Kelton's school" part. Tomorrow is supposed to be the big shopping day for the students. We secured gifts for everyone who had money today in anticipation of the storm but many of the kids are planning on shopping tomorrow (or Thursday). I would love to be able to get them taken care of before the snow falls and school close for the holiday break but it doesn't look likely. Time will tell.
In the meantime, while I am running around like a chicken with her head cut off (and can I just say "GROSS!"), here are a couple pictures to oogle over. :)
