I could hear you all yesterday a moaning and a groaning
from all of the turkey, ham and deserts.
Well actually that might have been me making all
of that noise.
I heard all of the physiologists, doctors, nutritionist's, etc.
explaining why or how not to overeat on Thanksgiving or
Christmas. That we should not make it an excuse for over
indulgence. My question was why not? Why shouldn't we
have two days in the year without the guilt of eating the foods
we like and that make us feel good. Why shouldn't we have a
day when the family can all get together and fellowship with
one another. One day to say "diet go stuff yourself ".
In a world that is so body conscious instead of family conscious
where everyone is scattered near and far, what is wrong with it?
I say yes to pigging out for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
What a joy to have a guilt free holiday!
Don't you all feel better now?
I awoke this morning hearing this tinkling against the
window panes and I just knew I was not going to like
what I would see when I looked out the front door.
Looking out and across the road to the field there was
these big white things falling all around.
I moan, " oh, no".
So I slowly venture to the back door to take a look out.
(Like that was going to make a big difference)
Nope, "drat". It was really snowing.
So I open the backdoor to get a better look and the little
stray kitten comes flying through the door as soon as I opened
it thinking it is really going to stay indoors.
"No little fella I am not going to start that, isn't it enough
that I feed you?".
So I run through the house trying to run him down
(these days that is a feat unto itself)
and carry him out onto the back step where it is freezing and
icy. So I know then the snow is not going to be melting as fast up
here on this hill until later this morning.
So alright blogger friends I guess I really have to accept
the fact that this winter thing is really going to happen.
Though some of you have had your big snows already
and that even in the northern part of the state there has been
snow, this is southeastern Ohio's first sticking snow.
I should not complain because we had snow last year on the
18th so we have really been fortunate so far.
So what does a person do but say 'alrighty then' on to
How many of you were shopping at 4 a.m. this morning?
Trust me as an old retired retail lady we do not share your
enthusiasm. Before the morning is up we both will be
shouting at each other ;-)
But this posting is not all about the weather, my lack of
enthusiasm or guilt free overeating.
The amaryllis 'Cocktail' that has been growing so fast has
started to bloom already with beautiful big white blooms.
The only thing wrong with that is that it is suppose to
be white with red variegation's or stripes. Now unless
that green center is going to turn red it may just be that
it was mislabeled for the nursery and I got another
amaryllis besides the 'Cocktail' variety that was ordered.
It is a pretty one but not what I ordered.
Now I am wondering if I should notify the nursery from
where I ordered the bulb from.
I do hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
And of course a guilt free one too.
