Merry Christmas!

Wishing a wonderful Christmas to all my bloggy friends!  And, to my RA friends, may this Christmas find you un-swollen, pain-free, well-rested and mobile enough to dance around any tree!  Thank you for all the support this past year.  I hope Santa is good to everyone :)

The Weather Lady Edition

I'd like to think that my blog has not resorted to a weather blog.  I mean, I love the weather, but I don't really want to write about it.  But, sadly, this is not the case.  I am going to write about it.  It's consuming me at the moment!  I have other, more interesting things I could write about.  Like how yesterday was my sweetie's birthday and our dog ate about a quarter of the cake I made for him.  Or how we've started fertility testing.  Or just how much sugar I have been consuming.  But, no folks, I'm going to continue to rant about the weather.

I hate it.  Plain and simple.  Apparently, the other day, it was 7*C here and 4*C in Miami.  Just to give you a better idea of where we are in relation to Miami, have a gander at this:
You can see where Happy Valley - Goose Bay is on the upper right part of North America and where Miami is on the lower right, and just how far away they are from each other.


Having no snow blows.

All I Want For Christmas....

...(aside from a baby, that is) is some freakin' snow.  Even just a light dusting.  I live in northeastern Canada and it was sunny and 10*C yesterday.  Seriously.  December 6th and it was significantly above zero.  Last year we were out on ski-doo getting our christmas tree around this time.  Looks like this year we'll have to borrow my mom's truck to get one.  I'm somewhat getting into the mood of the season, but still get confused seeing all the houses lit up with no snow.  At first glance I think, "why are they decorated so early??"  And then I have to remind myself that it's not early.  Christmas is just around the bend.

I don't want a green christmas, not in Labrador!  If you see someone moving funny and flailing her arms, dont' worry, that's just me doing a snow dance.  Please send all your good snow vibes my way!
