Snow, Blowing Sideways

We have had unusually cold and snowy weather for our area. I live in a desert, and we do sometmies get snow, but it melts right away. This time we have had snow on the ground since Saturday, with a little more added on top each day. It was -3 last night and the high today was about 15.

I happen to love this weather, but I seem to be the only one! I hauled Nate out for a walk in the snow and the last of today's sunshine after work today. Silly kid didn't even wear a coat! Our cheeks and ears were beet read when we came in but the walk felt so good. Until today it's been far too windy for that kind of recreation.

It seemed like a week for comfort food, so we are having, among other things, beef stew, Italian Bean soup, turkey noodle soup, tuna casserole, and crockpot burritos this week.

Tomorrow is Grilled Cheese and Soup day at work and I can hardly wait. I work in one of the coolest places in the world. This week is Castle Building--and we are building them out of sugar cubes! Friday was Chili Day, and there's nothing better than a bowl of hot chili with all the toppings when you have spent your morning with sobbing grandmothers and screaming angry Russians on the phone. Especially when someone else does the cooking and the dishes.

I am behind on my Christmas sewing. This month has gone by far too quickly for me. I can't believe we only have a week left, and here I was planning on being done with a week to spare! I am only working four days next week, which will be a near vacation after the 6-day weeks that I have had lately.

I hope all of you out there in blogland are having a great week and are remembering to keep some rest in this busy season.

We've had snow since Saturday too....weird!

I'm glad you work at a really cool place. Is it permanent?

Hi, ladies!

No, the job is not permanent (she says with a mouthful of grilled cheese sandwich...) but I have been told that if they have room, my prospects look good.

Supposed to snow some more here today!
