No!!!! It’s too Early!


We have a busy weekend ahead of us. My daughter is dancing in two Feis (Irish dance competitions) this weekend in Chicago. My son has all day musical rehearsal for “The Wizard of Oz” at his high school. And the two of us have tons of work to get done before Monday. So, we do what we have to and one takes one child and one takes the other. This weekend we switched it up so that I am staying home!

I was thrilled until I went out this morning and was hit with a super cold blast of icy rain. The above picture is what my car looked like this morning. No! It is far too soon for this. I know we typically get a good snow dusting right around Halloween but I was hoping for a bit milder winter this year. Looks like I am not getting my wish.

I drove by the beach just to see how it looked over the lake. They have the winter fencing up and it looks so dreary. I think once I pick my son up later this afternoon we are staying inside and watching movies. Maybe some hot cocoa and popcorn later.

But for now it is time to get the slow cooker going and put on a pan of water, orange peels, and whole cloves to simmer on the stove top. Love how it makes the whole house smell like the holidays AND it warms up the house a bit with the warm steam.

Hope you all have a cozy, fun weekend!

                      Adding to the basket does no harm until you look at the total then you empty the cart. Or at least that’s the way I shop on-line. Lol.

    Couldn’t sleep this evening so I’m going back and looking at posts I didn’t get to read recently…I had two thoughts when I read this one of yours: 1) how did the Irish dancing competition go and 2)mmm oranges and cloves…the holidays are coming! Happy Halloween.
