Frost Had Bit the Ground Below

Well, whatdya know? It snowed some here this evening. Stinky had to celebrate it by, what else? Taking photos of herself in it

It's kind of weird writing around the holidays when you know very few people are going to read it. In some ways it's kind of freeing. Who knows? Maybe on an evening when I'm not so tired, I might just get a little philosophical or something. Tonight though, I'm wiped out. My getting philosophical would probably sound something like this: Derrrrr. Uh, duh....What was I going to say?

My goal for tomorrow, (because a girl always has to have a goal) is to bring my deflector shield to my aunt's to try and protect myself from the guilt that will surely get thrown at me. Over the phone, my aunt already told me that she wasn't going to make too many sides, because it's not like me and the girls will ever stay for very long. I was really good and didn't bite. Instead, I just said, "You're right. We probably won't need a lot of extra food." Good of me, huh? We'll see how I hold up tomorrow when I'm in the thick of it.

That's about all I got tonight. I have to sleep so I can get up, go running, shower, make au gratin potatoes and leave town by 11'ish. How much do you want to bet that I leave a little later than I'm supposed to?

We'll have some of that snow today...

What would the holidays be without a healthy serving of guilt, the ultimate holiday side-dish. It used to be that way with our family as well.

Ah I have had a few too many of those Thanksgivings myself. Not to gloat - but I'm about to take the boys to the Bee movie and come home and make a turkey without many sides because I'm lazy and we can only eat soooo much - of course we have two pies
Hope there are lots of Indians at your Turkey day

It's been nothing but 70 or even 80 degrees all fall here in Texas. Then suddenly, today, winter arrived and now it's nearly freezing. And by that I mean maybe in the 40s with a little rain. Anyway, it's a winter wonderland here.

we had a few postcard flurries this morning. A little accumulation in the cracks of the sidewalk. Looks like you go the real deal.

hope you and the girls had a fabulous Thanksgiving. Also, thanks for being around this year.

I woulda just left the aunt a voicemail and said "We've made other plans, we'll stop by in the Spring sometime". and left it at that.
