We awoke to the southern version of a snow, a thick coating of frost that covered the grounds, roof tops, and cars, with overnight temperatures reaching thirty degrees. There is a misty fog suspended effortlessly over the creek. It gives off an eerie, yet serene feeling.
Over the weekend I made sure to refill the bird feeders and put out cracked corn for the wildlife in the hopes that we would have no more cold-weather casualties.
We went to Bass Pro shop to try to get a picture with Santa, but had no luck. The crowd was ridiculous and the line was way too long. We arrived at 12:30pm, a mere thirty minutes after Santa arrived on the scene, and the next "appointment" available that the elves were handing passes out for was 4:30pm! Perhaps we will have better luck next year?
Today the girls and I will start our holiday baking with fudge and sugar cookies. I have planned an easy dinner planned - chili and crackers - which will warm and nourish us.
What are your plans for today?
