Getting in the Christmas spirit

It is cold and crisp here - our high was in the 40s today - which just doesn''t happen here. Like, ever. It's strange, but every time I step outside, I take a deep breath and enjoy the cold on my skin. I can see my breath in the air and briskly head to my next destination. And the whole while? I'm humming a carol under my breath. 'Tis the season, indeed.

The weather is just helping the fact that everything else about Christmas seems to have snuck up on me. I've been seriously caught off guard this year. Maybe because Thanksgiving was so late? I don't know, but MAN, I'm leaving for home this Friday and I am just running fast and furious until then. But I can't wait. Yay!

Christmas has been sneaky this year for me as well.

Believe it or don't... I saw snow in San Ramon the last year I was in SFO... but it melted as quickly as it arrived. Then again, the WX IS different in the East Bay, once you cross over the foothills.

Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
I have so enjoyed your blog even though you probably didn't know I have been keeping up with you. We do miss all our "family" in SF. Curtis and KIm
