Remember how I said the weather was holding nicely? Well, that changed this weekend. We had several inches of snow and a blizzard warning yesterday. This morning it is 11 below. The high today will be nine above. No school today.
In some ways it is a relief to have the snow. Now we can settle in without wondering when it’s going to come. Now we can be real Minnesotans. Truth be told I don’t really mind the snow until March when it seems like it will never leave.
I never love the below zero cold.
Yesterday I was so cranky. The rest of the world lit their advent candles named “love,” but for some reason the materials we are using lit the “peace” candle. I sat there and fumed. I did not feel peaceful, but what could I do? “I’m sorry children. I know we are supposed to discuss the Prince of Peace right now but mother is too crabby. This Advent Sunday is postponed!”
Can’t do that because no matter how I feel, the truth of the Prince of Peace is still the truth.
This morning I feel better. I had a bath and watched Christmas in Connecticut on my tablet. How great is technology that you can watch a movie in the bathtub?! How can a girl be cross when we live in such a marvelous time. Our blood will adjust to the colder temperatures. My mood will adjust to the colder temperatures. Soon it will be the solstice and I can dance around the solstice fire.
