The One with the Snowflakes

I love the look of the sky when there's snow on the ground.  Sure, it's just the first dusting I've seen (as opposed to the feet fallen in Bula!), but there's something different and beautiful about the sun reflecting off of my favorite flakes that just makes me happy.  I'm looking forward to winter.  I LOVE winter.  I hope to get Kevin to hit the slopes with me something...maybe we could both learn to snowboard. :)  We need to get a shovel asap.  I think a treadmill would be a good investment...since I'm a walking fiend and there's no sidewalks out my way.  Also, I'm already wanting to get the Christmas decorations up.  I've never been this way--the one who rushes past autumn and into the Christmas season.  Maybe we'll be those people who set up their Christmas trees the day after Thanksgiving.  I think that would be fun.  Also, it would mean our families could see our holiday decor since I don't think they would get to another time.

Also, in case you're curious our fishies are doing wonderfully.  I love them.  And they love the lava lamp.


  1. wonderful post Melvin!!! I love the look of snow as well - not always the feel or the knowledge that I have to give myself more time in the morning to scrap the ice off my car.....

  2. I will send some of my melting mess to you. Check your mailbox!

  3. Oh, man. I am so, so jealous of your snow! I haven't seen any (besides a few pathetic flakes) in about 4 years now. I would give anything for a white Christmas!

    PS- We *are* those people who put up their Christmas stuff the day after Thanksgiving. It has become a tradition! :)

  4. Hi! Thanks for putting my blog on your blog roll. :) I'm a Christian too and think that youth ministers are generally very cool people, so it's good to "meet" you!
