So much to do...

and for some reason this year I feel a little pressured for time. There is baking to be done, more candy to be made, gifts to be wrapped. I'm very anxious for our Christmas break which will begin next Thursday. That's still a week away, and doesn't leave much time before Christmas.

I feel a little misled by our weather. Tuesday, it was a balmy 75 F! A cold front was supposed to be on its way, but this morning the thermometer shows that the weather man was wrong, at least in his timing, as it's 64 F. This does not feel like the Christmas season to a native Pennsylvanian. Anyone have some snow that they'd like to send my way?

We've had snow about every other day for a week or two in southern Wisconsin! I am looking forward to a having a White Christmas, but after that, you can have it!

I will be happy to send some snow. Would you like what is already on the ground or would you like some fresh-fallen that should be coming this weekend? Just let me know.

I actually like the snow, but I don't like when my hubs has to drive to work when the roads are icy. This last storm made for some tough driving conditions!

The weather right now is nutty! We are near Atlanta and have been in the mid-upper 70s all week. Even with all of the windows wide open, the temp inside reached 79 degrees one day this week. Running the A/C while looking at a Christmas tree does not seem right!

Good luck with your baking :o)

So much to do, so little time! I am just pretending that there is nothing to do until we come up with a day to do it:)
I second someone sending snow our way for Christmas. I am already praying for it!!!!

Persuaded said...

Oh, my! Yes I *do* happen to have some snow that I would very much like to send your way... it is coming down from the sky furiously and I think we have quite enough on the ground- thank-you-very-much!

Just tell me how I can get it to you and we're all set;-)

Beck said...

I have LOTS of snow. Just let me know how much you want.

Lori said...

Sure I'd send some snow and cold weather your way. If you wouldn't mind sending a little warmth this way. It has been so cold here. I'm not a very good winter person. I don't like it. BRRRR!

Sheri said...

Tracy, I would be happy to send some snow your way! And, I understand how you feel regarding Christmas and the weather... when we were stationed in Texas and Arizona, the holiday season just didn't feel the same to this Iowa, girl.

I just decided that what I don't get done is fine, no one will die from lack of fudge in my house : )
My sisters are experiencing a blizzard and we are on a roller coaster of warm to cold in Texas

Stacie said...

I love snow! Sorry, I can't send you any snow...:(

Kelley said...

Hey Tracy! Ü
I am pressed for time right now too!
There are a ton of things to do and I am hoping to get them done next week!
I am hoping that next year I will be better prepared..*sigh*

I wish that I had some snow to send...
You are having warmer weather than me and I am in California!

Have a blessed evening!

I know how that pressure is to get things done. We're just a bit behind here, but yesterday I finished my shopping (I'm usually done by Halloween, oops!). We haven't started our baking - that begins on Monday.

I wish I could send snow - it has been over 80 degrees all this week here. Somehow when you're wearing flip-flops, it doesn't feel like Christmas. I have been wearing all of my Christmas jewelry, though.

Christy said...

I am right there with you!!

Here in MS it is in the mid 50s for our high-but two days ago it got up to 85.

As long as it is COLD Christmas I am happy!

Short Stop said...

Brrrr...it is cold here, and snowy. I'd love to send some your way. Even though the snow is cold, I do love the way it makes it feel like Christmas...so I know what you mean! :):)

BTW, thank you for all of your recent sweet comments. They really, really blessed me, Tracy!
