Christmas is Coming...

I'm not sure about the geese, but with the goodies we've been welcoming into our home, someone's waistline is increasing. Nothing subtle about that, folks. January will be here soon enough and the gym memberships will hit my mailbox daily. Some things are constant, won't you agree? ;)

On Tuesday, the view to the East was this:

By Thursday, it had changed to this:
The fog shot is actually north from my doorstep, as opposed to east from 4 blocks south, but you get the general idea. Clear blue skies have given way to the usual valley fog. Rudolph? We could use your assistance...are you busy?

This morning my husband almost hit a cow in the road. He says it was because it was dark, not because it was foggy. hmmm. As the story goes, the cows planned an escape at 1am, and many were still hiding in the darkness. Silly cows. You shouldn't hide in the middle of the road!!

Christmas vacation means college students coming home, bearing gifts. oh wait. I think that's laundry.

And college students at home plus older brothers times snow in the Sierras means "Let's go snowboarding!" Don't worry boys, Mom will stay here and man (I mean mom) the washer/dryer.

Have a great weekend! I've been taking a few pictures, but am not ready to post them.

Mother always said, "Patience is a virtue."

This is so funny! I'm not sure if I envy you or not. No children coming home for Christmas for me (and no extra laundry either!)
