Wintery Mix

That's what they call it when they are not sure what the weather is going to do. From my picture you can tell it is simply 'Snow'. So, we are waiting to see how much we get. We had a warm week and the ground is still warm from that so this stuff is not 'sticking'. I doubt that it will amount to much at all.

This does curtail outdoor activities and the Good Mr.'s T is busy decorating for Christmas. Yeah, we are late getting things up but it's just the two of us and the Princess Pompeian and she does not care what the abode looks like, seasonally speaking. Nor do I.

Our original plans for this year was that we would not do much at all in as Mr.'s T and the Daughter were spending the last half of the month in San Diego. Flying there in time for the Homecoming of the 1st Battalion, 5th Marines and especially Charlie Company, and returning in the New Year bringing SN2 home with them. That is all still on and seems to be on track. The "Advanced Party" from the 1/5 showed up this last Wednesday and that means the rest will be following.

I was planning on staying here in the Swamp and holding down the homestead, fending for myself and the Princess Pompeian so no decorations were necessary save the "Welcome Home" for SN2.

So, while the Good Mr.'s T is putting up decorations I am watching the weather.

I was wonderin' about that, what with the news of a big op involving the Marines in Helmand. Good news.

As for decorating: Humbug. I haven't done that sorta thing in ten years, and since it's "just me" there's no real reason to. I get all I want or need of that stuff elsewhere. (I'm tempted to say "more than I need," but ya can carry this Scrooge thing too far, yanno?)

Buck, up to the minute - he called us from Camp Leatherneck so the general plans are on track.

I too am a bit of a Scrooge and would go without any decorations left to me.

I doubt I do any decorations this year, since we are building - that is enough mess for me without adding decorations.

Lou, building - you get the automatic pass on christmas decorations!!
