As you may have heard, we’ve had some snow. It started on Friday at 2pm and didn’t stop until sometime early Sunday morning. Then it started again, turned to heavy rain, then turned back to snow. It’s a real mess out there and today is supposed to be very cold (it’s 13 ° right now!) so there’s not much possibility of melting. Looks like we may indeed have a white Christmas.
This weather hasn’t slowed down Christmas preparations around here, in case you’re wondering. And neither did the stomach plague that Dale and Hannah both caught from me. Hannah started Thursday night and Dale started Friday afternoon but by Saturday they were both feeling better. Or at least better enough to shovel and do some Christmas shopping!
Speaking of Christmas shopping – it’s done. The wrapping is under control, the cooking making is almost finished as I’ve just got the peanut butter balls left to do today, and that only leaves the shopping and cooking for our Christmas Eve buffet. There’s not a lot of time for knitting these days but at least I’m getting all the other stuff done.
Enjoy your Monday!
Oh, what beautiful snow! We had the air conditioner on last week, but it has finally gotten cold enough in the last day to have a fire in the fireplace. I would LOVE a white Christmas!!!!
We were expecting tons more snow and even when I went to bed they said the commute would be bad. Well, it’s windy and melting like crazy! It is crazy! I’d rather have had the snow. Happy Christmas week. You know how to do it right!
Ugh! my brother’s household had the SVoD (stomach virus o’ doom) last week, too – glad everyone’s feeling better!
Sounds like you have things very much under control! Kudos to you. We got at least 2 feet of snow. Fortunately it was a snow event without any change over. We lost power for 2.5 hours at 11 PM. So grateful to have it back. Stay warm!
The snow does look lovely unfortunately I’m heading out to shovel so I suspect my feelings will change. Enjoy your baking. The house is always extra cozy when something tasty is in the oven.
I love peanut butter balls…
Pretty tree. Looks a lot like it does here in Milwaukee!
We got quite a bit down here in the SW corner of CT and it only changed to light rain for a tiny while, whew! Great stuff yesterday for snowshoeing, but not so great today with that windchill! Good day to wrap presents, bake cookies and KNIT! Merry Christmas, Carole!
Sounds you have it under control! Mmmm… peanut butter balls.
The snow sure does look pretty if you don’t have to go out in it.
That tree says “snow storm”! I’ll take your 14 degrees and give you our current -14 degrees! Hope all are on the mend and feeling better by now!
Glad everyone is getting well. We didn’t have nearly what you did, but it was enough. Enjoy your holiday prep!
Wow, sounds like you have everything handled, even the snow! I had the AC on in my car yesterday. 🙁
You’re so organized! I’ve still got so much to do, I don’t know how it will all get done.
Enjoy all of that white stuff.
It’s so pretty! (sigh)
I’m glad to know you’ve got thing under control.
Wish I could say the same….
I’m sitting in my office right now watching an ugly storm blow in from the west. Batten down the hatches!
We *may* have a white Christmas? I know it’s supposed to warm up on Wed, but unless it hits 95 in the shade I think Bing adherents will be quite happy.
As for your Christmas preparations, I hate people like you.
I’m actually happy for a bit of shoveling as it takes away the guilt of all my cookie-eating! Hope everyone is feeling better today!
Your temperatures are downright warm. 😉 I wish we could some snow around here so it would warm up. Congrats on finishing your shopping. I did a mid air heel click when I finished mine last night. It’s a good feeling. 🙂
You’re doing great!!! I’m wrapping up my shopping tonight, even if not exactly “wrapping.”
I am so glad that everyone is feeling better and that you’re home this week. xo
And I’m so glad that everyone in the household is over the awful stomach flu.
Pretty pretty picture! Glad to hear all is well,organized, and recovered.
Oh dear……..I’m sorry to hear that both Dale and Hannah got sick. Hopefully it’s all behind you now and you can enjoy the holidays!
ooh, the weather definitely looks frightful. glad everyone is feeling better!
That’s about what it looks like up here…YEP! Enjoy the week off!
When I worked always tried to arrange some vacation days so I could make good use of the week of Christmas and New Year’s.
Glad you’re all feeling better! :o)
Something tells me we’re getting rain – it’s supposed to be 38 on Wednesday. This sucks…youknowwhat. ;op
It looks pretty from here, but I bet the snow/rain/ice is a real pain.l
You’re definitely up there on the snow meter! Sorry to hear the sickness made its way through the family. My son had it all day Sunday but so far (fingers crossed) the rest of us are O.K. Hope you have a wonderful Christmas!
