Odds and Sods
This has got to be the weirdest time of year! The weather can't decide what to do; linger with fall or go full blast into winter. We live exactly half way from the banana belt city and the snow belt area of cottage country so we are affected by both.
An area one hour north of us got hit with a 1 1/2 foot snowfall last Friday but we just barely got a covering. My husband, who is a cross-country skiing fanatic, was down in the dungeon of our house where he was madly waxing his skating skis as soon as he'd confirmed that they'd opened up the ski clubs. He skied 25 km on both Sat. and Sun. and was tired but happy to be able to say he's skied twice already.
Alas, this was short-lived because last night and today were quite nice and sunny and it will be mostly gone. It was just enough to whet a skier's appetite, I suppose.
I, on the other hand, have been nursing a cold since last Wed. and have been just dragging and napping! The last exercise I did was a week ago. It bothers me when I get off track and routine, especially with something so important to my health. Hope I get back on this week. Strangely enough, this is the first time I've been sick with a regular bug in a year. (Heart attacks don't count as regular bugs!) I wasn't at school to catch germs from kids most of last year and I have been going into the school recently to help, hence the cold! I had to cancel a visit with a great old friend and will do it later this month.
My Canvas for Diabetes job needs to be completed so I must hit the street again soon. I don't think I'll get too many as most of the addresses they gave me are stores and restaurants.
Meanwhile, I love the Christmas songs my choir is learning for our upcoming concerts and local "gigs"! I sing second soprano and the parts are very pretty if not tricky!
There's a mish-mash blog if there ever was one! A bit of everything....just add it to the soup I guess some weeks are just like that!
Mother of Invention, stirring the broth!
