Why is it that even though we spend a day doing a multitude of tasks, sometimes at the end of it we feel like we've gotten nothing accomplished? This feeling is plain hogwash because, of course, we have gotten a lot done. I think this sense of unease is because (as a fellow blogger recently said) the things we got done weren't the things we WANTED to get done. Aha! Now there's something for you to put in your pipe and smoke on.
Yep, for me today was a "gotten nothing accomplished" day. I went steadily all day long but never did get to those boxes of Christmas decorations that have been crammed into corners of our small livingroom or the Christmas tree that we got last weekend but is still leaning forlornly in the garage.
Our weather has given us temperatures in the single digits for the past several days. Just plain cold! However, now we're told to expect a 40% chance of snow overnight, 80% all day tomorrow and then 60% tomorrow night. Oh, gollygeewhiz, I do hope we get a bunch of the white stuff.
The snow we've had left on the ground after the rains came a while ago has seemed to be evaporating into the air, and we truly don't have much of a covering now. I'm so green with envy over the wonderfully beautiful snowfalls other parts of the country are getting. Sue at Garden Notes 1010 in northern Michigan just got her first snow, and it looks so gorgeous in her blog pictures that I begged to come live with her for a while. (Regardless of what arrangement we gals might come to, I have a strong suspicion our husbands might not vote the same way.) Guess I'll just have to keep my fingers crossed for my own beautiful snowfall. Tomorrow? Huh-huh? Puuuleeeze??
Regardless of snowfall or not, I just know tomorrow will be a day that generates better vibes on this here (undecorated) homestead. And if we DO get the predicted snow, I'll finally have some pretty pictures to post!
