I woke up to snow gently drifting to the ground!
So at 6 a.m. I got dressed, grabbed two sleepy Dachshunds and we went out to enjoy the winter wonderland!
Well, I enjoyed it anyway!
But, alas, now it has stopped leaving a touch of ground cover and wet streets.
Still, it was a beautiful way to begin my December and Advent journey and to start sharing my 31 Days of Christmas Memories
Out to get lab work and then home to coffee and work.
Christmas Memory #1
Tonight we're playing Christmas music, sipping hot chocolate and working on the Christmas cards. I have so many good memories of my mom doing her annual cards. I think she sent out nearly 200 by the time she hit all of my dad's employees and our family. Each card had a handwritten note and the family ones always contained my recent school picture(which I hated because I never could trade pictures with my friends at school because she confiscated them for her Christmas cards!). She set up her office on a tv tray and a piece of wallboard on top of the tray that Dad had taped the sides. She had her pens, her stamps, her Christmas seals, her cards and her Christmas Card Address Book neatly arranged on her improvised desk as well as a place for her coffee cup and her ashtray. I knew to never touch anything on that desk. She would do her housework and then spend the afternoon and evening working on her cards in between fixing supper and taking care of me. She also watched the daily 3:00 movie.
Have a Marvelous Monday!
