1983 circa snow suits

Winter has arrived in proper fashion. It was announced yesterday on the weather channel that Canada is completely covered in snow.

Snow falls on the west coast of Canada are usually followed by rain falls .. .and slop.

We've had a week of temperatures below freezing.

We will be having a white Christmas if the weather forecast proves correct.

I love the idea of a White Christmas . . .

(I pray that I never say otherwise. . . )

My beloved and I are having a very special short little snow retreat tonight. . .
(pictures just might follow .. .no promises)
My groceries for Christmas Day are stashed and the gifts are tucked under the tree. . .
there is nothing left to do but Celebrate.
My heart is ready. . . .
I'll be back on Christmas Eve to wish you a Merry Christmas.
All for now, with love . . .

    One more trip to the grocery and a bit of cleaning, and I'll be all ready for Christmas, too.

    Have a wonderful week and a blessed Christmas!

  5. Those snowsuits are great and if I could fit into the yellow one, I'd wear it today with pride. I love yellow and I love being warm. Have just come in from shoveling the end of the drive, which was packed with several feet of snow. (The truck has a flat tire...ackkk!)

    I love that your "heart is ready." I am praying for the moment when I can say the same...soon, I hope, very sooooon.

    Enjoy your mini-retreat!

  6. That yellow - I remember when it, along with turquoise and fuschia, was everywhere.....we survived the 80's!
    I hope you enjoy your snow retreat! Good for you for having all your preparations made - I hope to be able to say the same thing by the end of the day

  9. I guess you don't have that suit anymore? =) I love the snow falling on your screen! I also love the excuse the snow gives us to stay inside. My h went grocery shopping with me yesterday (something we never do together and I'd never do on Sundays), but it feels good to have my stash ready too now. Looking forward to good family times with those we have with us!

  13. Jill, that was the neigbors house across the street.
    Funny about the snowman face missing. . .maybe he was looking at the neigbors or for the traffic going by. . .we should have taken it the other direction with our house in the background. . .I've gotten a little better at fashion and photography. . .woo hoo.

  14. Oh, I remember that yellow suit. What fun. I remember the boys just that way too. Any snow and there had to be a snowman. Isn't it fun to look at old photos. Enjoy your retreat:) Kathy OS love the now on the screen....how clever

    That is always my one constant wish each Christmas - snow! I'd like a few feet actually. :)
    Hope you have a wonderfully blessed Christmas.

  16. Did you know that yellow is the most noticeable color? That's why many fire engines and paramedic trucks are yellow...

    Enjoy your short retreat!

    Merry Christmas!

  17. That's a great suit - I had one very similar for skiing. Only it was pink :)

    Snow from coast to coast - the first time in 37 years I heard!

    Enjoy your retreat!

  20. Island Sparrow's comment about it being the first time there has been snow coast to coast in 37 years.

    Does Al Gore know about this? Does he find this to be "An Inconvenient Truth"?
