There's nothing like the threat of not being able to be on the internet
to get a wayward blogger back into action!
After numerous odd December days of warm temperatures,
we're in for some winter weather today.
Icy rain began to fall shortly after we awoke this AM;
it's steadily drifting down and in the last hour has begun changing from pellets to flakes.
And that means the satellite dish might soon fill up and cut our link with HughesNet!
So here I am trying furiously to decide what to write about
after a lapse in blogging of almost a month!
I'm still enjoying the job at the kitchen shop.
It was a shock one day last month
when a shopper passing through town introduced herself
and knew me from the blog!
I was so surprised that I'm afraid I hardly knew what to say
(something rare for me these days!).
Despite the holiday schedule,
I'm sticking to my goal of not being "too tired" after work
to cancel any planned activities.
But I admit there have been a few evenings
when I've been thrilled to put my feet up after getting home
and have Joe hand me a glass of wine!
We've seen several musical and dance performances at W&L
and a colorful Fall too beautiful for my meagre descriptive words to do it justice.
We've shared dinners with friends, lots of bridge games,
walks in the woods, a few rides with the horses,
work on our trails, experiments in the kitchen
and generally a peaceful month of quiet "normal" days.
Is there a song or poem about "frost on the pumpkin"?
Because it's definitely here!
Despite being under the covered porch, the snow has blown in on our glass table….
My plans for today are to stay inside and start a pot of soup,
feed the fireplace wood as needed,
play Christmas carols, take away the pumpkins and decorate for Christmas.
And of course marvel at the snow falling outside…..
still a thrill to this former Louisianan!
I'd better hit publish before the snowflakes in the satellite dish hit critical mass!
It's nice to be blogging again!
