@Mackenzie Click-Mickelson , what a beautiful snow photo! Dealing with 7 inches of snow wouldn't be fun, but it is definitely pretty. So sorry to hear about your uncle's health but thankful everything seems to be heading in the right direction now. @NFLDERS , your Tim Hortons looks pretty tasty. And I agree with Mackenzie, love that blanket! I, too, think it's sad when all of the Christmas directions are taken down. Our tree, outdoor lights, and most decorations came down after Three Kings Day (or Epiphany), but I just put the last few items away yesterday. It's so dreary and blah without the cheery decor now. I saw an Anthony Bourdain show about the Philippines celebrating 100 days of Christmas. They start mid-Sept and go through Epiphany. I think we should do something similar here. Start Thanksgiving weekend - or maybe the weekend before - and go through Valentine's. By then, we'd have a bit longer daylight hours and the valentine's chocolate would provide a temporary mood boost. If we had a big enough box of chocolates and only ate one a day, it might get us through until spring. Wishing everyone warmth and safety over this weekend. Hope the storm won't be as bad as they think.
