It feels like Christmas!

I love nice weather, it doesn't matter if it's snowing or sunny, all the weather is nice. If you can't control it, try to enjoy it. Crisp air that makes your nostrils stick a little, crunchy snow under your feet. Wearing a stocking cap even if your hair looks like you are a teenager who hasn't showered in a week, once you take it off. Passing people on the road who made 2 eye holes in the snow and ice on the windshield; it's not Halloween folks. I think it's like texting and driving, it's not worth my life and a couple minutes won't hurt especially if you plan ahead.

and that damn kettle bell ringing drives me to the brink of insanity.

Yes, the holidays are almost here.

Then of course it's fun to run at night and look at all the holiday lights up around the area. The Broadmoor hotel is real close to the house and they do a lot of lights each year. It causes some major traffic issues this week until new years, but as long as they stay off the sidewalks and I pay attention, it's just traffic. Around the neighborhood there are a lot of million dollar homes that try and outdo each other with lights, but still remain pretty classy in tradition and nothing too gaudy. People with 30 yard spot lights just blind the crap out of me, perhaps they are doing it for security but each one of those houses has a 10+ foot shadow around the house... so much for security, maybe they like a big light bill.

My Christmas cards finally showed up just in time to get them out to a few people who will be surprised I actually did cards for the first time in 15 years. I will get them out in the mail tomorrow so they shouldn't be late, but it's the message not the time. With so much negative and bad stuff I decided to try and put a smile on faces of my best friends and family, I hope it works. My Brother will be surprised to get a gift card for Lowes, something I debated doing, he doesn't like to talk about me and my life. I don't do it to compare but when he asks me what I've been doing, I tell him, and that's the end of that conversation.

Look, more cookies arrived! really.


  1. i like all kinds of weather too - sunny, warm, nice....it's the cold, rainy, windy, snowy that i prefer to enjoy from the window - bahahhaha!

    i am glad that you got your Christmas cards and cookies! enjoy!

    your friend,

  2. Need to have some egg-nog with them cookies.
    And as for the weather, I'm with you. Enjoy, and make the best of it.

  3. I should have ordered more than 8 holiday cards, I'm such a goof sometimes.

    I do love eggnog but I'm not sure it loves me so much. Sort of like eating too many deviled eggs!
