The Downside of Snow



THE DOWNSIDE OF SNOW

(Well, that would be almost everything. I still can't understand how anyone could like to snow ski or board. How can it possibly be fun to slide down a slippery hill in cold weather?)

Our Christmas decorations are still up. The boxes for them are in the detached garage WAY in the back of the yard and it has been too sloppy and wet to retrieve them. Not that I mind. I'm kind of enjoying it after missing so much of the pre-Christmas season around here. But, it seems it really SHOULD come down before the end of January! We've never been this late.

The pics are not of our decorations. They were taken over there where I was during the pre-Christmas season. They were in front of a flower shop. I almost didn't post them because the guy in the shop very rudely wouldn't let me take any photos of inside the store-which was even cuter than the outside. After I came all the way back with my camera too! No free advertising for him. I won't even say where it was.

Strange. I wonder why he wouldn't let you take pictures. Does he think you're going sell them? Well, the decorations look nice anyway. BTW, our little tree is still up, too.

Those are pretty decorations. Maybe he thought you were going to copy them and then sell them. His loss, it would have been good advertizing for him.

I still have the lights on outside-it has been too cold to take them down, but everything else is down. My neighbors still have their halloween lights up- that's really bad. :)

We had an unseasonably warm spell and the OC, bless him, took our outdoor lights down just before a big snowstorm blew in!
