Around These Parts


'Tis the season not only for the holidays but the weather outside to be frightful.

We're in for some exciting weather around these parts this weekend and into the early part of next week.

I know some of you have had a lot worse already. Some would even say we are overdue for the bitter cold.

Part of me is excited. Who doesn't like a little bit of snow? Another part of me wishes it would blow over.

Speaking of blowing, it is currently 39 degrees with lots of rain and the winds are increasing right now. Good times y'all. Good times.

Y'all send the vibes for it to not get too bad ok? The last thing we need is for the power to go out with the temps dropping. But if it does, I'll light some candles, get in my snowsuit, and curl up with the kitties under lots and lots of blankets.

I can handle snow. It is driving in the ice I don't care for. I have plenty of warm weather clothes, including hats, gloves, mittens, scarves, and jackets. We have dressing layers down to a science around these parts too. This is a good thing as where I am going Monday is expected to be even colder than the Seattle area as represented above.

Cue Ren and Stimpy - Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy.

Here's to hoping the weather stays in control as my weekend is scheduled to be full of good times and lots of laughter and love with some of those I hold nearest and dearest to my heart.

Friday: Dinner with Mel at The Rock

Saturday: Brunch with Fiwa and Brad at Brad's

Saturday afternoon: Candle party with Fiwa, Mars, and Drea

Saturday post the party: Sushi at Mars'

Sunday: Visit with T and Snookums

How are things where you are? Cold, warm, wet, dry, windy, humid? I am interested so spill.

Peace and Love Peeps.

Make sure you bring your camera to Brad's. I was going to ask if he got his fixed, but you just don't do that anymore. You don't smack lenses either. You listening Brad? Anyway, stay warm. I hope your power stays on. I hate it when it's dark and cold and you're forced to work around that. Sounds like you've got a lot going on this weekend. Good times!!
