“It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas everywhere you go”…….screeeeeeeeech…………..whoa, wait! Christmas is officially 57 days away. We haven’t even celebrated Thanksgiving yet! Back up the truck (or the calendar pages), we haven’t even hit the month of November.
But the scene which greeted me outside my house this morning enticed me to sing Christmas carols. That’s because it is snowing here at Mama’s Empty Nest! A pristine white overlay cloaks the still green grass in our yard, not a usual occurrence for October here in my area of the state. About an inch or so already accumulates on the maple trees that haven’t dropped their coats of pretty fall colors yet. It’s an odd sight.
The weather forecasters predicted this, but I scoffed when I heard their report. I expected maybe some snowy bits mixed in with rain, but not this.
Not the ground covered with a fluffy white blanket, the outside world wrapped in colorless cotton, and a steady dusting of Suzy Snowflake and all of her friends continuing to descend.
My house looks as if it’s ensconced in an unremitting snow globe, one where the snow never stops and settles.
I’m posting pictures. I know it isn’t Wordless Wednesday, but for me on this 29th page in Chapter 10 of my Opportunity book, I am shocked. Let’s just call this Speechless Saturday.
Oh well… “Oh the weather outside is frightful, but the fire is so delightful and since we’ve no place to go, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!”
