I Hate to Say It...

I need snow. I know. The minute it snows, I'll wish the roads weren't icy and it weren't so cold. I'll wish the kids didn't leave boots, mittens, scarves and coats all over the floor. Despite all that, I wish it would snow...just a little.

This morning I took out all the Christmas decorations and put them up, which I normally don't do until the first of December. We always do a real tree, so that isn't up yet, but I put everything else out to see if I could convince myself it really is coming soon. No such luck. It still feels like spring outside, which in other parts of the world might be normal for this time of year, but it's just weird here. I went to church Sunday without even a light jacket and the last time I talked to my mother, it was warmer here in Canada than where she lives in Arizona.

Last week, I kept thinking about Christmas being only a month away. Usually I have my Christmas shopping done by the end of November or first week of December. I got a few things yesterday, but I really haven't even started yet. To be honest, I don't even know what to get people this year. This is raising my stress level substantially.

My kids have only asked for books and CDs which isn't terrible unless the book or CD won't even be released until after Christmas. I always give each of the kids a book for Christmas but it would be nice to think of something else. (On the other hand, it is nice to have kids who don't ask for a lot and are satisfied with so little. Comes from years of having nothing...but that's another story.)

Anyway, I guess I'll be spending the next several weeks catching up on my sewing, baking, and shopping. And I'll probably sing "White Christmas" enough to drive my husband crazy.

Are you crazy? :-)

Remember when Alberta gets snow we get it for at least half the year.

I say rejoice in no snow. Remember according to the calander it's still autumn and it will be until Dec 20 or 21.

And it's way easier to go Christmas shopping when you don't have to spend half your gas warming up the car and then sliding all over the road.

I need snow too. My lawn is still green. What is up with that? sigh. Let it snow, let it snow . . .

We had a bug grass fire south-west of town today. Still waiting to hear how close it came to my dad's house. Now that wouldn't happen if it would just snow like it is supposed to. :)
