The lime green would be perfect with Grinch-like ornaments, and I may do that yet. I think a Whoville tree top star would be cool.
So, we went to the Artwalk in Alpine the weekend before Thanksgiving, and got snowed in. Well, not really so much snow, but tons of ice. The little cabin we stayed in was cozy and warm, but the walk was pretty miserable, though we got to see some really wonderful artists, and I ate fried pickles...which is one of my favorites! We stayed in Ft Davis the first night and skipped the receptions that I really wanted to go to. But that was even nice. We stopped at the Mercado and got a couple of hens and a bottle of wine, and made dinner which was wonderful and I enjoyed the wine.
The next morning, my son made breakfast for us... which was really wonderful! He is really getting to be good at making things, he even made toast on the griddle... which is my favorite! Ended up the road on to Alpine wasn't as bad as we thought it would be. There had been a car go off the road just North of Ft Davis, on the road to Balmorhea, and we drove about 30 all the way, but from Ft Davis on to about 4 miles out of Alpine the road was actually clear. go figure.
We ended up cooking dinner instead of going out, and we played out with the dog, taking turns freezing with her. She didn't want to come inside, She absolutely loves the snow and ice. My son skated around and spent a lot of time on his bottom! But he loved every minute of it. When we finally went home, the roads had cleared a lot, only making us drive really slow a couple of times, just in case. Everything was melting but the further North we got, the more the
clouds were building, It looked bad, but ended up not being bad at all. Our electricity had been off while we were gone, I don't know how long, but there had been power outages all over town. The house was cold but it was good to be home. '
Mom stayed over for a couple of nights, and we had Thanksgiving with my sister's family, My daughter and grandson were here as well, but seems like we didn't get to visit at all.
We had another cold spell this past weekend, a lot of ice and school was called off on Friday, which makes it bad for my son, he has his GT on Friday, and I don't think they will be able to make it up...
So, between being sick, holiday and company, getting the chance to snuggle...and the ever growing pile of laundry, and projects, I haven't got anything done!
