Some chit chat.

So, here we are again! Another Sunday and Christmas is right around the corner! I’m so ready for the holiday break from work. LOL

My blog has been busy this week. Reviews and lots of events. Make sure you check my other post links at the bottom so you can enter some awesome giveaways!

So, let’s see. What’s new? Not much!

What to talk about? How about a white Christmas?

I live on the Gulf Coast and we don’t get snow. Not often. If it does get truly cold, we might gets tiny ice pellets. I only recall snow once or twice and it didn’t last long.

I was born in Michigan and snow was in abundance during the winter. I loved to go sledding and snowmobiling, hit the frozen ponds for some ice skating and the slopes and trails for the snow skiing.

That was when I was younger. Now I’d probably freeze to death. I’m not kidding. I used to go back home in the winter to enjoy the fresh powder and could never get warm. Your blood thins in the tropical climates and all I did was shiver. LOL

Down here, it’s warm, in the 70s, and everything is growing. My lawn needs to be mowed, the flower beds need to be weeded. Christmas decorations look strange without snow. I’ll never get used to that. But, I don’t miss the frigid weather either.

So, my question to you is, does it feel less like Christmas for you without the snow?

I thought I’d share with you some ornaments on my Christmas tree. They have a southern flavor to them.

A Christmas Octopus.
