Cold enough

I was running around this week delivering packages in this semi-rare cold spell we have been having. I had on a light jacket that was hanging open, no hat, or gloves. I had a heavier coat and gloves in the car but had decided they were unnecessary. One woman came to her door wrapped up tightly in half a dozen layers of thick clothing. She took one look at me and said, "Oh my goodness, you MUST be freezing!" I just smiled and said, "I'm fine. I love this weather." And I do. I am so much happier running around in fresh cold air than I am the hot and humid stuff. Granted, this is eastern NC and highs in the mid 30's is what we consider "COLD". For me, its perfect. Much colder than that and I may not love it quite as much. I feel like I can breathe, and I love the fact that I can go outside without sweat. No bugs, no snakes or other creepy crawly things. Now if we could just get a little snow. Not enough to make the roads bad, but enough to make a snowman in the yard.......

A bit much?

I found this on Fail Blog. And my kids thought I go a little over the top....LOL.

Actually this year, I have scaled way back due to lack of time. My work schedule has been insane, and trying to get the kitchen finished too has left us scrambling to get ready for the holidays. It will be fine, I'm sure. My children won't feel lacking if the house isn't stuffed to claustrophobia with my Christmas toys. Maybe next year......haha.

This is so similar to what is going on at our house that it is uncanny. LOL.
