NOVEMBER NINETEEN – No Snow November

Seriously… I don’t know who took Idaho’s “normal” cold n’ snowy weather but I gotta’ say. Heading into the end of November with temps in the 50’s n’ 60’s is pretty cool. Even cooler? Driving around town, windows down, beautiful sunny day listening to Christmas music! The Grinch song is killer, especially when you pull up to the light and the car next to you, a whole stinkin’ family, mom, dad, and kids ALL sing along with you! That was fun.

I do love my snow but I sure could get used to this warm fall weather year-round!
If any of you remember in my last post a million years ago I mentioned sharing some recipes and horror stories about family get-togethers. Well… I don’t have a horror story but I do have a Thanksgiving prank I pulled on my brother-in-law.

We were all in the kitchen getting dinner and snacks made up and my brother-in-law had just poured himself a cup of hot coffee, black with sugar, no cream..
THEN he went out to get some firewood and FOOLISHLY left his fresh, steamy, hot cup of coffee unattended.

Soooooo. Wonderful sister-in-law that I am I dumped half of his coffee out and replaced it with black olive juice. The look on his face when he took that first drink was PRICELESS! You’d of thought I put acid in his mug! Omgosh. Still makes me laugh and still one of my favorite holiday pranks.
I know I’ve been away but I’ve been working on things, things that I cannot share here because they are gifts but it takes time to make things and eventually I will share all of the things!

I have a dr. appt. today and then it’s back home and back to all things holidays. I seriously cannot believe our beautiful weather. I used to put my Christmas tree up on the first snow of Boise OR if we didn’t get snow it went up the day after Thanksgiving. Looks like it’s going to be a Thanksgiving tree this year.

Parents must not be buying bikes for their kids for Christmas this year. My theory is that when parents don’t buy bikes we have no snow Christmases. If parents buy lots of bikes then we’ll get a ton of snow. That’s the way it usually worked for me. Santa would bring the kids bikes and we’d get hit with a snowstorm so the bikes sat until spring. No bikes and it’s dry as a bone outside.
I hope you’re all having a wonderful start to your week. Raise your hand if you’re done with your Christmas shopping and are ready for the holidays. Not me but I vow to be every year so it’s another epic fail year for me. So, my yearly vow will roll into next year but if I don’t do it then either I’m just going to be Jewish! Jewish people go on cruises at Christmas.
MIMI’S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY –
