first i want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and happy new year!
new jersey has been in the big freeze this last weekend . first a mix of sow and rain that froze last friday. then sat. the temp went down to 16 with 40 -50 mph winds. and althought i did brave going out on sunday i needed my black boots, a green wool skirt, warm cotton blouse and a long black dress coat.
i dislike winter. so much that i can't even enjoy colorfull fall in nj worying about the season of winter coming. Burrrrr. just the thoughts of it make me chilly. LOL
the interesting thing is that once into winter i do winter acctivities like skating. i prefer to do this outside if possable but an indoor rink will do.
then we get to the middle of bland dark january i really miss the sunlight and since i have exema (skin imune system issues) i need a little sunshine. i often think we need to move the holidays further into the mid to end of january. this would give us more time to shop.
the bright holiday lights would remain up and on till later in the winter. that way it would be much more cheerfull in january. can anyone arrange this pleaseeeee? giggle giggle.
on the other had a famialy friend has lived in hawaii for many years and gets island fevor wishing to see the fall colors and snow. (she can have my share of the icy stuff) and don't tell me about germs. so. califorina doesn't have snow and they done't have any more germs than us on the north east area.
another former nj shore friend has the best of both worlds she teaches in so calf in the winter and goes to the nj shore for the summner as believe it or not it is not as rough ocean wise in nj verses the la area.
anyway once again all have a very merry christmas and a happy new year.
