It felt nice yet at the same time, a little snow for the lights to bounce off would be nice. So as I stood with the door open, letting the fresh warm air in the house, I realized something. The weather is out of my circle of control, rather than let it be one more let down this Christmas, I'm going to embrace it with a walk or two. How will you modify traditions to fit the bizarre weather?
The thruway attendant at this particular Starbucks let me have a sample to sip and smell. I thought, this could be a new tradition. My understanding is they have a new blend each Christmas. I ground the beans this morning, the house smells lovely and the coffee taste delicious. This might be a new tradition for us, Starbuck's Christmas Blend each year. Of course we'll have to travel to Syracuse or on the thruway to get it, but it's an excuse for a road trip.
