But I confess, that dang paper fireplace was so delightful.
Yesterday it snowed--snow globe snow, all fluffy and swirling--and the sun shone, melting the snow to water. Ten minutes later the clouds came in and the temperature dropped from 33 degrees to 29. All the melted snow froze into a solid sheen of ice. I drove the Momvan to pick up Mr. G and stepped up the curb onto the sidewalk where both my feet flew up in the air and I landed smack on my back on the hard concrete sidewalk. Thank God I tucked my head when I was mid-air or I'd have a concussion for certain. (If I've learned anything in karate, it's how to fall without banging my head.)
Embarrassed, I shuffled into the day care like an old woman and heard the children singing Christmas carols at top volume--shrieking with glee because it was snowing. November has never felt like such a long month. I drove Mr. G home--he begged to play outside in the snow the entire 2 miles--by the time we reached our house, there was nary a flake for him to touch. Mother Nature can be a real jerk sometimes.
I spend last night laying on a heating pad last night, popping ibuprofen and watching my secret gay boyfriend extol the virtues of Woooo! girls.
Today I am stiff and sore, but have no headache and a good range of motion so I'll count my blessings--and read everyone's blog posts for today.

Days 10 & 11 of my 29-Day Giving Challenge: Bought extra bag of groceries for our local food pantry while at store, made HUGE supper of scalloped ham & potatoes and will take a portion over to neighbors so they can have a break.
