the first snow!
We got our first snow of the season last night, and woke up to find the backyard a winter wonderland.
I mentioned to Jason this morning how excited I was that we got snow and it’s not even cold here! He said, “Only someone from Minnesota would think that 23 degrees is warm!” I bet a few of you on both ends of the temperature spectrum would agree with that (hello readers in FL or MN!). It’s amazing how 23 degrees does not feel THAT cold after surviving a few -15 degree Minnesota winters.
We also agreed that the snow meant that it is officially almost Christmastime. Because snow is a necessity for Christmas. I’m sure of it.
The dogs were nervous about it last night, but seem to approve today. And my carpets are thanking them for that.
My carpets are also thankful for a little package that I received yesterday. One that I went outside to grab, only to discover that Barley had jumped up on the door, slamming it shut and locking me out. In my pjs. With no cell phone. The Fed Ex man was there, too, and was nice enough to let me borrow his cell to call Jason. But Jason had left his phone in the bedroom when he left for work yesterday morning. So I got all MacGyver on it and ended up breaking into my living room window in slippers and a bathrobe. Thank goodness my neighbors live far enough away that they didn’t have to witness that less-than-glorious sight. Sigh.
Anyways. The package. Black & Decker sent me a vacuum to try out, just in time for some pre-party cleaning. So if you’re looking for me today, I’ll be singing along to Mariah Carey’s “All I want for Christmas” and getting ready for tomorrow’s holiday party! Can’t wait!
