Florida Snowman

E-mail from my sister, Lisa in Tampa:
Florida is the only warm spot!! In the 70's today and I've got the AC on just to keep the Christmas Tree alive for Christmas. Thinking about going to Disney, they have snow but it's soap suds that look like snow at a distance. Sad..Huh??
I asked Lisa to send me a photo of herself for this post - she sends me this! Ha-ha-ha! Love and miss you sis!

Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow!

In my corner of the world we are having a delightful winter storm. 17 inches of fluffy powder snow fell in 24 hours. Virtually everything is shut down - schools and businesses are closed. It is peaceful and quiet outside. I like a snowstorm because it halts my hectic daily pace. I'm at the mercy of mother nature and she just ordered me to slow down and enjoy the season.
That's real as it gets!

Oh Gee - Thanks Sister

Lisa:"Just finished up my Christmas shopping, put the tree up and now ready to enjoy the season... I'll start baking, baking and baking."
Me: "WHAT?!?!?!?! Are you insane? From another planet? Lying?"
The "other sister", Lisa is extremely organized. Always has been. In high school she was the kind of teenager who would iron her school clothes the night before, get up super early to style her hair and was always in a sweet mood.
I on the other hand.........always running late with bed head and wrinkled clothes.
Love you inspire me to at least start a Christmas list.

5 Reasons to Get a Pedicure

1. The Massage Chairs....Pedicures are a total relaxation experience when you sit back in the automatic massage chair. Ooo-la-la!
2. Slinky Sandals....look much better at holiday parties when your toes are painted a pretty color.
3. It's Safer Than A Hair Cut......If you hate it, you can just wipe it off with a bit of acetone - need I say more?

4. A Wide Array of Nail Polish.....choose from a rainbow of shades. My nails are always french manicure but my toes can be bright orange with flower decals. It's just good fun!

This stuff is so good...Harry and David Moose Munch. Last night I went to Costco to buy veggies and coffee......or so I said as I left my house. I knew all along I would buy a box of Moose Munch and open it impatiently on the drive home. "Only at Christmas time," I remind myself as I reach in the bag and pop the chocolate/caramel/cashew popcorn into my mouth. I could live on this stuff....and quickly gain 20 pounds or so. I tried to corrupt my sister this morning at the office. I pulled out the Moose Munch and she said "Oh no, not that. I am not going to get started on it so soon." Tis the season to indulge. That's real!
