Everyone kept saying "At least it'll be warmer" and they might be right. It might be warmer than in Chicago. But noone mentioned that I should have brought my snowboots or that my parents would have more snow than we've had yet this winter in Chicago. I helped my dad clean off his truck and shovel the sidewalk. We've pushed cars out of stuck-ness. I've baked dozens of cookies and wrapped several gifts. Oh, and I saw an elk and took his picture. Actually, I took a few hundred when I went to the mountains with my mom. Longhorns and prairie dogs are fun to photgraph.
It's going better. That is very good. I hesitate to write that worried that I may jinx myself.
Tomorrow brings more cooking and guests to entertain. Oh, and Christmas.
Happy Christmas to you all.
May peace, joy, and love be yours this Christmas and in the New Year.
