I am happily holed up in my toasty house with fireplace and furnace going full tilt. But last week that was not the story. With the holidays over, I had to return to work and it was not a treat to step out into -10 degrees with a -17 wind chill. I really envied my hubby on those days. And I really really wanted a snow day! But no luck, because you know why? We are Montanans, that is why. We are made of harder stuff, we have back bone, we have Jeeps, and parkas and all that winter stuff, yeah, yeah, yeah, but still, I wanted a snow day. :( I had to laugh, I am known for always wearing shorts all year through at work. If Kit is wearing shorts it can't be too bad the kids say. Well, last week, I wore pants. I think that is why attendance was down, they took one look at me, and knew it was bad out there....lol
So today I will make a big pot of Bean Soup and some Pumpkin Pie. And watch the playoffs. I have to absorb all the football I can before it is all over for the year. I also have to organize and put away all my Christmas decor. I take it all down to the rec room and then spend a day culling out pieces and boxing up the keepers. Upstairs the house is dressed in all it's browns, and blues, so calm and peaceful. But downstairs it looks like a department store in the throes of Christmas clearance!
Oh, guess what? I got myself another Blow Mold Santa! And I didn't need to spend a dime. Hubby and I were headed out to run some errands the day before New Year's Eve. He was just listening to a message on his phone, when he pointed to a Santa standing next to a garbage can. I made a quick turn and he ran out to fetch it amongst tons of mid day traffic, climbing over snow berms and dodging cars. I swung about and stopped traffic as I picked him up and headed down the street. His phone rang and his friend said, "I just saw two crazy people running about with a Santa and causing grid lock on Russell Street!" Turns out the phone call was from the same person who messaged hubby in the first place to tell him about the Santa. So we scored a good condition Santa for next's year display. Talk about being thrilled! And Santa has a new home.
Well, off I go. Time to get crackin'. Hubby just said it is now 1 degree! Yippee! Always, Kit
