Oh, Look, It’s Snowing

Not only have we had snow. We’ve had a whole lot of snow!

And now, it’s snowing on this page.

The “Cousins’ Thanksgiving at Cape Cod” was fabulous. Mary Ellen did an outstanding job of putting it all together and keeping it fun for the entire time. We also had a “party room!” Although, at our ages it was more like a conversation room.

Mary Ellen had even prepared a gift basket for each of us with Cape Cod fun stuff, including cranberry wine. I did not know there was such a thing.

We had planned to work until noon on Wednesday and then take our time driving south to Cape Cod, even stopping for a leisurely lunch. Didn’t happen.

The snow forecast had us out the door at 8 after making sure that our driveway snow stakes were properly placed. Picked up a McD’s breakfast sandwich for the car and drove in pouring rain the whole time. All the time saying, “At least it’s not snowing, yet!”

Arrived at the Inn – Enjoyed a fun lunch with my sister, Meg (who flew in from St. Paul, Minnesota) and my cousin, Meg (who brought her husband Robert and they flew in from Las Vegas.)

Our Thanksgiving Dinner with a whole table full of cousins and spouses was great. Food was delicious!

Shopping on Friday? It snowed. But not much! There are real stores – just down the street! Even a Pier 1! (Where I clumsily knocked down several glass things but they were nice about it and didn’t want me to pay for those things that I broke…)
