DRIP DRIP DRIP

It's pouring rain. The kind of sullen, grey, relentless rain that keeps you inside no matter how much you have to do. Which means, unless it clears up in the next 3 hours, which is doubtful considering the depth and quality of the mass of clouds above us, we won't be out in the wood finding the perfect Christmas tree to grace our home. :(

And if we don't get our tree today, I don't know when we can get it!! I have 2 concerts tomorrow afternoon, and by the time I get home, it will already be getting dark. I don't want to wait so long to get our Christmas tree up, because I believe they should go up earlier than later and come down within a reasonable time and I want to enjoy my tree for as long as I can.

Last year, this time, there was snow on the ground. The year before that, this time, there was so much snow on the ground we were building snow forts and snow men and snow lamps and cursing the need to shovel yet again. A little snow now would be most welcome. Everyone up north has been having snow for ages...it's not fair!! grump

I slept in like a child-free woman today. Anders got up at 8 to feed the kids and left at 9:15 for hockey. They've been playing quietly since and I couldn't bring myself to get up, so lay and dozed for almost two more hours. What luxury!
