"I'm dreaming of a white Christmas. . . "
In North Carolina, we can dream all we want; almost never are our Christmases white. We've lived here for almost 17 years, and only once during that time did we have snow on Christmas day.
This year, though, we got a little taste of what a white Christmas could be like. No wonder this is the stuff of dreams.
Isn't it lovely?
When we lived in Michigan, a snowstorm meant that we needed to stay home for a few hours, waiting for the plows and salt trucks to clear the streets. In North Carolina, though, a snow like the one we had last week means that we hunker down for days and days.
After all that hunkering, I'm woefully behind on some of the errands I need to run. I've made lists and checked them twice, but a lot of things just haven't gotten done.
Oh well. The snow's all gone now.
Our skies are blue once again.
I'm finally getting the Christmas decorating done.
It really is beginning to look a lot like Christmas.
In the midst of all the holiday bustle, with or without snow, I sure am glad to be home for Christmas.
What are things looking like in your neck of the woods? Are you ready for Christmas?
