First Measurable Snowfall
December 5, 2007
This is what it looked like outside today. And no this isn’t a black and white photo. It was so dreary and gray outside that it looked like the color had been sucked right out of the world. My serotonin levels are plummeting along with the temperatures and lack of available sunshine
I had to search the attic for all the winter boots. Why they get put away in random bins with things like Easter decorations and camping gear is beyond me. But it probably has something to do with the fact that I send my children up there to put things away because I am to lazy to walk all the way up there. I justify it by saying they need the exercise. Unlike me. Ahem.
We read some Christmas books from the library, unwrapped our daily Christmas book, fought for prime position in front of the wood burning stove, did our Advent reading by candle light, listened to Handel’s Messiah, and ate home made spice cake. I feel like we have packed an entire seasons worth of fun into a single afternoon.
Now we are huddled in the dark watching the Charlie Brown Christmas Special and giving thanks for tivo.
It is just like my childhood.
Except that I am watching it surrounded by my family on a colored television, not on a 13″ black and white, all alone while eating my tv dinner apple cobbler out of the tin foil tray.
