first day of snow

We’re getting our first snowfall of the winter today, with an accumulation of 1-2 inches predicted. I’m home nursing a cold, and I have to say it’s a pretty good day to be inside and look at the pretty snow without having to actually deal with the cold wet stuff.

We lit our menorah last night for the first night of Hanukkah and I’m thinking about making latkes. I got a big package off to Italy at the post office. Hopefully it will arrive in time for Christmas. Pandora is playing a nice interdenominational mix of acoustic-type holiday songs (station based on Hanukkah Blessings by the Barenaked Ladies). Yes, I’m finally getting into the holiday mood…
