I love you El Nino

I love shopping on line. It takes a lot of stress out of Christmas shopping. What fun it is simply to wait for the postman. It is fun to go to the various on line stores and shop drinking a nice cup of java or hot chocolate. (snow soup as Ben and Sam call it) Hot chocolate helps put me in the Christmas mood. I can put my feet up. I don't have to worry about sore feet or sore hips. I can play my own Christmas music. I can sing along and not bother anybody.

The weather outside is delightful
The fire is not so frightful
Since we have no place to go
Don't let it snow, don't let it snow, I said no to snow.....

Hee hee...see...not bothering a soul.

Next week I am going to decorate the yard snow or no snow. Truthfully, I am hoping for the no snow. I am loving this weather. It was fun going out with Ben and Sam and the puppy and running through the leaves. I shall put up the tree as well. Bah...who needs snow! I love the no snow thing. Chris does not have to shovel! Yes! I love it. No to wet dog feet tracking into the house and no to winter boots blocking the doorway. No to getting stuck in the back alley and no to having to sweep the car off with my bare hands because I forgot to bring my gloves along.

It may look strange out there but I think I can get past that. Most probably, there will be snow. It is a rare thing not to have snow. I am thinking it will snow before Christmas. Sigh....

This evening, we are going to cook hot dogs outside and barbecue chicken. That wood smoke is going to smell fantastic. Like I said, I love this weather! With that said, I am heading out to enjoy some more sunshine. I am going to pour a cup of coffee and sip at that and read my book and listen to the neighborhood children play hockey on the street. You don't need snow for that. Floor hockey is fun. See! A no snow winter would be just fine.

Hmmm...not my best written composition. Oh well...to nice out to worry about that. Bye, going outside and am wearing only my sweater and again, loving it.

This post made me smile the whole way through. I like your little edited song. :D I sang it in my head. I'm glad you're enjoying the weather! I wish it would snow here, at least it wouldn't be rain!

And I'm probably the only person in BC saying this.

I'm happy for the rain and warmer temperatures that we are having this year! It's nice. Last winter was the longest winter ever.
I totally agree with the shopping online thing. I don't do ALL my shopping there, but thinking about it for next year. I could start in January like I used to do when the kids were all home.

I'm envious of your no snow. We have some on the ground. And it's COLD, too. Roasting wienies and barbecuing chicken sounds like fun.
