Winter, won't you stay a while?

I just think y’all need to know that I am so utterly confused. I have Christmas music playing on the TV, (satellite radio on the TV, that in and of itself messes with my little mind) Christmas sugar cookies baking in the oven and the flour and red and green sprinkles all over the kitchen to prove they are from scratch. The Christmas tree is decorated and sparkling in the corner of the living room, and it looks cold outside.

BUT IT IS NOT AND I AM SWEATING! It is in the upper 70’s with somewhere around 175% humidity. Having the oven on made it so hot in here I had to turn on the AC!

Two days ago it was in the 80’s. Yesterday it was in the upper 30’s, tomorrow it is supposed to be in the mid 40’s, but today it is in the upper 70’s.

I can’t take it! MAKE UP YOUR MIND TEXAS! IS IT WINTER OR NOT!??!

Okay, I know this seems a little extreme to be shouting IN ALL CAPS about weather, but I so look forward to the very few cool, low humidity days that winter affords us, all year. I feel like I am being cheated out of my winter.

I wonder if D’s company has any offices that need a branch manager in Idaho or Montana.

We moved to Colorado from East Texas just for that reason and a few more.

I saw your comment on BooMama's site. I, too, love "O Come, o come Immanuel." My very favorite!

Your potato soup recipe looks yummy! I will have to try it soon.
God Bless,
Holly

I so want to move to CO Holly! We visited this summer, camping in Muller State Park. It was so beautiful I did not want to come home.

I cracked up at my comment on BooMama's site, I was quick-typing and did not check before I hit submit.

I totally spelled Immanuel wrong! Of course once you hid submit there is no going back. I almost posted again to say, "I know how to spell it!" but somehow that just makes it worse. :o)

I feel for you. I guess I will not complain about not getting any lasting snow, because it is at least chilly round these parts some days. Hoping you get a cold snap for the holidays!
