Most probably know about the storm that slammed New Jersey and the eastern coast this week. Well, I don’t like the damage that comes with a big storm, but I sure do love the snow I received from it :). I awoke to the most beautiful ridge view I have seen yet. We ended up with some thick snow in areas, more than forecasted. I was so excited to hear we had some coming, but didn’t have my hopes too high as we tend to get good snows when it isn’t forecasted.
To my surprise I awoke Tuesday morning with a gorgeous white blanket. I grabbed the camera and shot a pic from every window and door I could access. Terry’s cousin Paul and wife Anita happened to be in town overnight and witnessed my silliness that stemmed from the excitement of the white stuff. Paul just rolls his eyes and grins…shakes his head a little and lets it go. Anita hates the cold, the snow, the ice…everything winter is. She wasn’t as forgiving as Paul when it come to my eagerness to make sure I could see snow from every window.
Every year I ask for snow on my birthday. It rarely happens. Most of the time the first snow comes a week to two later. My birthday is today. Not only did I get some snow close to my birthday, but it was an excellent first snow that I could enjoy all day.
Carey’s school cancelled…. a snow day already, in October…anyway, Carey got the day off and slept in. Later he joined with his neighborhood buddies and they built a snowman. It lasted about two days before the boys’ destructive side tore Frosty to the ground. I love this time of year!!!
Since we are now officially in November, I’m starting my Christmas decorating planning. I hope I can find everything…since the move. I wish I had some sort of inventory list to help me out…lol…maybe this year I can make one. This will be our first Christmas in this house and it is going to be wonderful!!! I believe I’m going to start on my Christmas letter this week and have it ready for the mail when we get just a little closer. Thanksgiving is the target…Terry prefers to at least get Thanksgiving out of the way before bringing down Christmas…I reckon I don’t blame him…we need some holiday separation.
Right now, I’ll just continue enjoying my fall…after all, it is my favorite season. It was awesome to get a glimpse of the upcoming winter though.
