Snow Today!!

Welcome to my latest follower...msucheermom.  How nice of you to start following me on a no news day.  Thanks for signing on in spite of that.  Do you have a blog so I can put in a plug for you?  

Yikes, it snowed today.  That is not ok and nobody cleared it with me...I would have said a resounding NO if I'd been asked.  Fortunately, it was not at my house, in fact, when I reached my house it was perfectly dry.  The temperature is down in the 30s now, too cold for me, and I believe it's coming down from British Columbia.  It's supposed to drop to the 20s overnight for the next 2-3 nights.  Brrrrrrrrrrrr.

I delivered the bowling ball I decorated for my friends 65th birthday.  She was participating in a Christmas bazaar at her church, which is close to my house.  Way closer than where she lives.  She told me that it was snowing at her house when she left this morning.  If snow is in the forecast she'll usually get it because her neighborhood is at a much higher elevation than my house.   Anyway, back to the church bazaar.  She's been ordering and packing a variety of nuts that are sold at the bazaar with the proceeds going to a number of agencies in the area.  I'm so anti-Christmas shopping because of how we're lambasted to shop, shop, shop and buy, buy, buy that I don't buy Christmas presents anymore.  I celebrate birthdays, especially now that my son isn't a little guy any longer.  What I do do though, is buy a variety of the nuts sold at the bazaar and send them to my son and his wife.  

I leave for Tucson two weeks from today!!!  

More sunshine please,



  1. I am so jealous! I love, love, love Tucson. Haven't been in a few years, but heading to AZ first week in April next year. Hope you post here while in Tucson of all the good places to eat and visit. I love hummingbirds and in Michigan we only have one variety, but there are 13 or 14 kinds in AZ! So I was in heaven going to Madeira and Ramsey canyons just to find hummingbirds. Well and camping surrounded by Saguaro cactus, the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, Native American jewelry, Mexican food, and kachina dolls. And a few zillion other things. BTW, I blog for the Great Lakers Chapter of RVing Women at

  2. And I'm so jealous - I love, love, love snow! Isn't it funny how we're all so different?

    I completely agree about Christmas. I wish I could stop buying presents. Every year I tell my kids I'm going small this year, then I overbuy and get a bunch of dumb stuff. They have everything they want already, so this year I'm REALLY going to go small. And since I'm downsizing I've asked them both for one coffee mug with their kids photos on them, to take with me in my RV. Anything else I'll pretty much have to sell, so...
