blessings of the frigid sort

at our place, forty-six degrees means:

-plum-colored mums shivering on the front porch

-thick hot chocolate, plumed with whipped cream and a dusting of cocoa

-lots of sibling togetherness (which basically means that Zee has to dole out more quarters than usual for harassing his younger brother)

-the commencement of Christmas carols (hey, only 61 days, 10 hours, 9 minutes and counting)

-trains snaking along wooden tracks

-the wearing of fleeced hoodies and striped knee-socks

-creamy soups and warm waffles

-coldish noses

-board games and snuggly book time.

Here's hoping your Wednesday involves fuzzy socks. :) Be warm, friends.

I am glad to hear you are also in the Christmas mood. I pulled out the hot chocolate for myself and my girls yesterday! I was able to stop myself from playing holiday tunes, but I was humming them!

I'm not the only one who's counting down to Christmas!! YEAH! You just made my day! Everyone else thinks I'm crazy... it's hard to really feel Christmas-y down here. It's supposed to be in the upper 80's today. I miss the crisp cool fall weather. I want a little snow. Does that make me crazy or what?

Oh, and Christmas... LOVE IT! I will be singing carols with ya! Virtually, of course. ;) OH! You just gave me an idea........
