It snowed on Saturday. It started around lunchtime and continued for a couple of hours, then moved northward. They got most of the heavy stuff and we only got a few inches… maybe four or five? Something like that. Enough to make it worthwhile to plow so that we didn’t wind up with a driveway full of ice, but not enough to convince anyone to start digging.
I thought the snow would melt off by today, but the warm weather we were told to expect today hasn’t shown up. Pretty much all the snow from Saturday is sitting in little icy piles wherever it originally landed.
Do you enjoy skiing or ice skating or if it’s warm where you are, hiking or enjoying outdoor sports?
Nope. Never been skiing and HATED ice skating. My mother made me take ice skating lessons, probably because she was an ice-hockey player. I hated the lessons. I hated the ice. Sliding down a mountain on thin strips of wood never appealed to me. But when I love SNOW and I loved tobogganing and sledding.
Do you give to charities or homeless that you might encounter, during this time of year, more than you do otherwise?
I give what little I can manage whenever I can and I don’t wait for a special season. I have so little to give, it’s not like I’m going to be able to deduct it from my taxes or something.
What is the most enjoyable activity you engage in during December? Is it a tradition for you and your family?
Not any more except for sharing a good dinner. We stopped giving presents years ago and usually, I find some extra money for my granddaughter. There year, there IS no money for anyone.
What changes will C-19 bring to your festive celebrations this year?
Not much except that we won’t have any extra guests. But it’s going to be the same cast of characters. Same tree. Same lights. Oh, we did buy presents for the Duke. At three, he’s still a child.
Well wishes for the world?
I wish life would stabilize and give everyone a chance to breathe. And I would really wish our government would spend some money to help us survive this awful year.
