I forgot to mention that we had a white Christmas this year much to the delight of everyone else in the lower mainland.
And today? It has snowed non-stop in my neighbourhood. I realize this may not be true for anyone else. I live on the top of a hill, and therefore get more snow than those who live even just 5 miles away from me. Lucky me.
I am not enjoying the beauty of it.
And I feel guilty about that, because, I suppose snow is a gift from God. If I didn't think about driving in it, maybe I'd be able to be in awe of it's whiteness and the stillness it creates.
I had lunch today with a friend I've known since bible school. We started talking at noon, and didn't stop til we left the restaurant at 4 pm. There is nothing as satisfying as good conversation. Well, almost nothing.
I was invited to a friend's place for supper and then to join her and her family watch Lost 3 on their new big screen TV in their newly renovated media room. And I would have gone. Except for this snow thing. It's snowing. And, I'm a weinie. And becoming weinier by the day. Maybe it's because my 4x4 with winter tires is in Sunpeaks and I am here with a tricked out 'toy' truck with summer tires and no weight in the back.
So I stayed home tonight.
And finished up Grey's Academy's third season. (I know. I thought I finished it last night. But when I took the DVD's back to the rental store, I discovered that the season is actually 24 episodes long. So there was one whole disk to watch tonight. And this explains why there seemed to be a lack of continuity between the second and third season... I missed the last 4 episodes of season 2. Blonde. So very blonde.)
Tired of the sobbing that comes with watching dramas, I've rented Notting Hill and Emma to watch sometime in the next 24 hours. I need some fluff ...
Three things I'm thankful for:
1. It's supposed to stop snowing soon.
2. I'm meeting some friends from 'way back' for lunch tomorrow.
3. I am going to Mexico next month. Where there will be sunshine. I am SO thankful for that.
