I have to admit that I'm beginning to yearn for the arrival of winter. Really. I may be shunned for saying this, but I WANT snow. Yup. I'm not kidding. All of this warm weather has been great, but seriously, shouldn't we need a winter jacket by now? Don't get me wrong, I don't love the cold weather - unless I'm complaining about it :) -- but this weather makes it so difficult to get my Christmas mojo going! The Christmas tree has been up for over a week now. Lights? Check. Garland? Nope. Not one single ornament hangs from its fragrant branches. Quite a radical change from my annual obsessive Christmas decoration frenzy. Usually, I'm in a crazed state the entire weekend after Thanksgiving trying to get the whole house done. So, yeah, I need snow. Like NOW, please!
Until then, I'm trying to self-motivate. I imagine sitting by the wood stove, a crackling wood fire blazing, as I sip from a steaming cup of tea watching fat silent snowflakes swirl slowly dancing to the frozen ground.
Or, I could just go on Pinterest!
Okay, so this little girl is the cutest ever!
