Snow Globe

I have this weird idea that I’m living in a snow globe and someone shook it up today. The view through the window of my work space is gray, cold and dreary. The snow has been falling steadily all day long and it finally feels like Christmastime. Three weeks …

Speaking of Christmas, I decorated my house the other day with my collection of Christmas-themed items. All six of them. Seriously, my lack of holiday flair is a little embarrassing. I apparently don’t have a smidgen of Martha Stewart in me. I think I’ll go buy myself a little tree after work.

This is the first Christmas that my whole family won’t be together. It’s going to be very different and I’m trying hard not to be sad about it. It’s going to feel rather lonely without my two sisters. (And who will play the other part of the Sleigh Ride duet on the piano with me?)

Next Thursday is Compassion’s Christmas Banquet. I found out yesterday that my sister-in-law Valeen and I bought the same dress. (Apparently we both have impeccable taste.) At least we bought different colors. I have a feeling, though, that we’ll still be the Tschamler Twins.

That’s it for today’s update. I leave you with a picture of what I look at all day long …
I never thought I’d like working in a cubicle, but with the snow falling outside, a cup of hot chocolate (second of the day!) and Tony Bennett singing me “Winter Wonderland,” it’s a pretty sweet deal.
