A little surprise


For the past few days, our local weatherman has been telling us snow was heading our way on Tuesday night/Wednesday morning. 


But we generally don't get snow before Thanksgiving around here. I thought it would be festive to be able to look out the window and see a little flurry of activity.


But I didn't really expect it this early. Although I did see the "signs" when I stopped at the store Tuesday morning.


I was delighted when I woke up this morning and saw my back deck. 


It's not much but when you don't usually have any before Thanksgiving, this was exciting to see.


The world outside my backdoor is a contrast of seasons. I still have some beautiful fall leaves on the trees and Santa's van next door had a light dusting of snow. (yes, I live beside Santa Clause)


Even my apple tree out front had a little on the branches.


I fixed my favorite ... a cup of hot chocolate, marshmallows and peppermint candy cane and settled down to work on my Christmas list for Black Friday. 


Now just to try to stay warm today.
