* * * * * *At this time of the year I always look forward to seeing my favorite movies on TV... It's a Wonderful Life and The Polar Express are two of them.
In one part, at the North Pole, they're waiting for Santa to appear, and some of the elves are harnessing the reindeer for the sleigh, and I tell you those feisty reindeer are jumping and leaping all over the place! Everybody's singing, the elves are climbing over each other to get a good view, they're playing the trumpets... and when Santa finally appears they go wild!! That's a really kewl scene.
Another scene is when the elves are filling Santa's bag with toys and they discover the main 4 kids in the bag, they tell this know-it-all kid to have a good trip [or "don't slip" or whatever] and boot his tail out. Then they're loading Santa's bag on the sleigh when it gets stuck on the star at the top of this humongous Christrmas tree, then the parachute crew has to use ropes to guide it down. I really like that movie!
Yesterday we were under a winter weather advisory - definitely NOT one of my favorite things! I left the office shortly after 1:00 and got home (usually a 35-40 minute trip) at around 2:45. The roads were so slippery, even at my top speed of 25 mph I skidded a couple times when I stopped at a red light. Scary, I tell ya! Isn't it funny how you don't notice those little hills until they're covered in snow or ice? The good news is, they called off the advisory but now they're saying we may get more this weekend anyway. I know I'm whining, but we're not supposed to get snow until January :o*(
I didn't get any sewing time in yesterday, sometimes you get the bear and sometimes the bear gets you! That's my story and I'm sticking to it!
