Oh the weather outside is frightful....

...but I think it's so delightful.

Almost the entire province of Alberta has been slammed with the first blizzard of the season. And I couldn't be happier. Excuse me while I go into hiding to avoiding being pummelled to death by my fellow Albertans. 'Tis true though, I love winter. The snow falling is beautiful, the cold temperatures mean sweaters, mittens, and bundling up like a big puffy snowman. Hot chocolate, blankets, cuddly kittens. Sigh. Prepare yourself for the big shocker...I even enjoy shovelling the sidewalk (Big Brother is especially grateful for that little bit of weirdness on my part). I'm sure though that if I had to drive around in this weather, I probably wouldn't be so excited. So, while I'm bouncing around and frolicking in the snow, I feel bad for those of you out there who spent two hours commuting to work yesterday when it normally takes you 1/2 an hour. It wasn't too bad though, at least in my office: the big boss man let just about everyone go around 3:15 because of the weather.

Now that it's finally december and, yikes, there's less than three weeks until the fat man slides down your chimneys, its time to decorate. That really doesn't mean much for our little household - a wreath on the door and a small Christmas tree. However, its enough for the two of us. I'm very excited to pull out the ornaments and start shooing the kittehs away from trying to chew on the strings of lights.

I'm heading out to the library and drug store today so I'll get some pics of the beautiful white blanket that's descended on our city and I'll post some shots of our attempt at decorating as well later this afternoon.

What are you doing to get into the holiday spirit?

My dilaptated tree is up and my garland is up and it was flurrying yesterday. No real snow as of yet here. But it will sooner than we want it.. So enjoy the snow..

Good for you for having the right attitude. I find now that I don't have to drive across town, I enjoy a blizzard as well. Perfect conditions for getting my Christmas cards done.

However, the people I know who were stranded away from home for the night, or who took 4 hours to make a 40 minute trip are less than thrilled.

Rain rain and more rain in London. Thank feck however just now I can see a ray of sunshine through the rain drops!

Sun! Light! I need you!

No festive decorations in MY house, as we won't even be here for long. Probably a little bit of tinsle on the horns of the Devil mask in the living room, like this:
