It snowed! It’s blowing like a banshee out there. Knock on wood, we still have electricity so it’s good.
We enjoyed a wonderful, quiet Christmas. No shopping involved! Our Christmas gift to ourselves was a bus trip to Boston to see (& hear) the Boston Pops Christmas Show. I’ve always, always wanted to go, so when a local bank offered the trip, we purchased tickets. It wasn’t billed as “an old people bus trip,” but most were older than us. We had a ball. Had lunch with two other friends at “Top of the Hub” in the Prudential Center. The Christmas decorations in the Prudential Center and on the streets were simply fabulous. Our small town has wreaths and many trees are wrapped with lights, but the downtown stuff in Boston was beautiful.
We’ve watched everyone else get lots of snow but we did not have a white Christmas. But, the East Coast blizzard arrived last night! We’ve been plowed twice but once the wind gets going, much of the driveway is again covered with snow. We have a new, electric, small snowblower to use to clear the deck. One problem, the long extension cord is over at dad’s house. Used it last week while thawing a pipe for the outdoor water faucet. The other two long cords are being used to light the tree at the top of the driveway. And yeah, we could unplug the tree lights except the cord is under the snow. The deck will be tomorrow’s project, along with a trip to the airport to pick up Chris who’s arriving for a few days visit. The plow guy has been here twice (not cheap, but it’s gotta get done).
PS – If you’ve visited, you’ve seen some of the clocks we’ve received from our good friends (I think…) Gab & Mike. Click below to see this year’s gift!
