life, snow and other stuff

Well I am looking out at a winter wonderland and loving it.  I think the snow is a perk of living up here.  I don't know if it was because I was snow deprived as a child or what, but when I see the white stuff I get excited.  I know that it is only October, and I feel sorry for the trick-or-treaters, but I still love it.  It means that Christmas is coming, ski season will start soon and the world of brown will go away for a while.  Up here there is a very short autumn, the colours of the trees are mostly the same yellow and then the leaves fall quickly, leaving bareness and brown everywhere.  The snow comes and makes it beautiful again.  Not that I love the road conditions or the freezing temperatures that will come soon, but the snow makes it bearable. 
This weekend has been a wonderful break.  I was able to catchup with two friends on Friday night and had one over for Korean last night.  It's nice to be able to do that.  I haven't been able to see any one since my birthday (well over a month ago) for anything not work related.  We all have busy lives that get in the way.  I also managed to get my Halloween banner finished and put up; I'm not sure if I like it or not, but it's done.  I used Recollections paper with various pieces of grunge board that I painted.  I also used Making Memories chipboard letters that I had hanging around for a few years.  Overall, the only thing I spent money on for this project was the paper.  Everything else was in my stash already.  Now I have to clean up my room and get on with the next project.  My room has become a little lonely lately, as I usually work in the evenings.  I have decided that I will devote only an hour (unless under extreme circumstances) of time in the evenings to work.  We usually stay until 4 or 4:30 most days so that should be enough.  Then this way I can devote some of my time to scrapbooking.  Of course best laid plans....
C was nice enough to go and get some bird seed for me, so I am going to brave the elements this afternoon and go feed the birdies.  I was happy to see some birds checking out the birdy condo that Dad made for us this summer.  Maybe I'll get lucky and have some tenants in there.  I just hope it is far enough off the ground that London and Cairo don't end up with a snack bar. 
Have a happy rest of your weekend and a wonderful week!
