Share Your World on a Snowy Day – 12-3-19

It started snowing yesterday afternoon and hasn’t stopped yet. Sometimes, the snow has been mixed with rain and other times, it has been the “two inches per hour” blinding snow. It’s supposed to snow all night tonight with a heavy burst in the morning. I so badly wanted a nice cool snow-free winter. Oh well.

What’s your remedy for the Holiday blues?

I don’t have that problem anymore. Not since I stopped spending half my annual salary on gifts for people who didn’t appreciate them!

Your favorite beverage (if it differs) during the holiday season?  If it doesn’t differ, just answer the ‘what’s your favorite beverage” part. 

I used to love eggnog. Homemade. But Garry and I don’t drink anymore and it’s so fattening. And the stuff they sell in the grocery just doesn’t do it for me.

This one has been asked before, but what’s your take on pumpkin spice?

I like some. I don’t think it belongs in absolutely EVERYTHING. I love the smell of it better than the way it tastes.

Is there is a person or god connected with your holiday? 

No. As far as how I feel about other peoples’ holidays, I absolutely do NOT care what you celebrate as long as you aren’t forcing it down my throat. Enjoy your celebration. I might be happy to enjoy it with you. I have nothing against Chrismas, Easter, or Ramadan. Or, for that matter, Hanukah. I love the food and the decorations. I even like church services and hymns.

I say “Happy Holiday” because I don’t always know what holiday someone is celebrating or not celebrating. We don’t wear patches that state our religious beliefs. When we do, we will all be damned.

Share a song that you enjoy during this Winter season (whether it’s Christmas, Hanukkah, The Winter Solstice, Kwanzaa and so forth.

  1. Snow, huh? We’re having gales and heavy rain. I it snows here, it’s generally Feb/March. And if it does snow, I hope it’s heavy and overnight. That way I can phone work, tell them I can’t get in and work from home so I don’t have to drive in it 🙂


  2. That Christmas Cactus is doing you proud!! So beautiful! I’m with you, no shoving of religious or spiritual beliefs during what SHOULD be a fun and magical time without stress or rancor. Blessed Yuletide Ms. Marilyn and to Garry and the ‘kids’ too!

    • I don’t know why people feel the need to turn holidays into such a disaster. It’s like folks who take vacations and never stop complaining about it! They should stay home and the holiday haters should just shut up!

      • We need a little time for a few OLD Christmas songs, covered by the original artists — Crosby, Torme, Belafonte, Garland, etc.

        Also, a few of the OLD Christmas/holiday movies — “The Bishop’s Wife”, “Holiday Inn”, “White Christmas”, “A Christmas Story”, “Remember The Night”, “Meet Me In St. Louis”, etc.

        A wild card — “The Untouchables” weepy Christmas episode — “The Day They Shot Santa Claus”.


  3. What beautiful floral photos you have for us today. Great post Marilyn 😀
