Ready, get set, SNOW!

Hello everyone!

We got snow!  I suppose by now most of you who get snow has gotten their first snow fall as well.  Ours was on Tuesday and we woke up to a lovely dusting of white.  What a wonderful way to wake up!  Since then we haven't gotten anything significant, just little flakes here and there, but OH MY GOODNESS it's gotten cold here!  This morning it is 19 degrees and windy!

Anyhow...  There hasn't been much in the way of excitement around here.  My friends and I have been trying to get back into an exercise routine.  We go out to the base where there is a HUGE gym, three times a week.  We individually work out doing what ever it is that we like and then the last 15 minutes we do something together.  So far, it's been just stretching, but eventually, we will do things like play a little tennis, or racquetball or do a little competitive rowing.  There are 4 of us and none of us know how to play tennis or racquetball, but it's never too late to learn...right?!  ;-/

The holiday hustle & bustle is gearing up!  This year (or has it always been the case and I've just not noticed..) it seems that the stores have geared up for Christmas in record time!  I was trying to get ready for Halloween and I'm seeing Christmas things everywhere!  What is going on!  Now I'm working on getting ready for Thanksgiving, although, our daughter is hosting our Thanksgiving again this year, I have promised to do a couple of things... dinner rolls and a pie or two.  It's nice not having to do it all and to see things done a little differently by the younger generation!  ;-)  And, this also means we'll have a little more free time to play with Little "M" which is a very good thing!

Well, this is just a short one.  I hope you are all doing well and are enjoying the hustle & bustle of the holiday season!

It’s is 10 AM and we are only at 6°F. We ended up with about 3-4 inches of snow out of the system that gave a a dusting. Our high yesteday was 11.
