it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

I was driving home last night and all the Christmas lights on most houses were lit up and reflecting in the freshly falling snow... it was beautiful. I am surprised how every year I feel the same goofy, happy excitement flow through me, and it's never less than the year before.


Then I heard that the weather people say this is going to be one of the coldest winters yet. And if that's true, I know all I will remember this time next year is not my cold toes or harsh winds, or frozen locks, but my warm house with pretty lights, the wonderful scent of pine throughout the my house, full bellies, kind words, beautiful carols sung by my family and chocolate..... mmm Christmas chocolate is the best.

so with all that said, there are only 12 days left until I am free to indulge myself in all the above, and I hope it's not too long for the rest of you too...

Happy early Christmas everyone!

when do you do your big eggnog consumption-thing?

well that is 'nogs eve, nov 31 at midnight (dec 1, i guess...)
but I can't do that anymore because I'm lactose intolerant, so it'd probably kill me, or just about kill me anyway...

Oh, Kim! I hadn't even thought of eggnog! How will you survive? I'm surprised you're even in a Christmassy mood!
