Frosty Friday

Finally a frosty Friday in Texas.   I like that sheen across the fields as I drive to work.

Been a super busy week at Omega. I know I promised reviews, but I have not sat down to write them. I come home from work at night and watch Netflix.  What can I say?

But I have been trying to keep the glow of Thanksgiving alive (being grateful, giving thanks, and appreciating all).  So as the Christmas season heats up, let's continue some of the courtesies we need.

Smile more, talk less (love that line from Hamilton)

Use patience in lines as new clerks try to use the register.

Caution on the roads and in parking lots.  Yes, that person is nuts - just let them get out of your way.

And deep breaths - no it can't all get done in a day. Scale back expectations. Stop for a hot cocoa
and be of good cheer!  

Happy Friday and weekend. Hope you like my Christmas tablescape.

  3. Cool here in Phoenix :) So true about letting the nutty driver out of our way. I rather let them get in front of me so I can keep a better eye on them. Enjoy the weekend!

  5. Good tips. I'm shocked by frost in Texas though - it never occurred to me :-)

    1. it doesn't last long. Often it's due to a bit of chill and folks run their sprinkler systems. Makes the grass shiny

  7. Your Christmas table is beautiful! We have crossed over from chilly to downright cold, but I really can't complain. We've only had one small snowfall which didn't stick around long. Also Fall was with us for a good long while this year. :)

    1. Plus you live in OH, it's what you expect, and you are prepared to deal with it. We don't own a snow shovel!
