I know that it is already December. I see the Salvation Army collection buckets outside of Safeway. Wal-Mart has converted its garden center into a Christmas warehouse. There is a Christmas tree in the lobby of our apartment building and Christmas music is in the air. All the signs that Christmas is just around the corner are all around me, but it still doesn't feel like the holiday season.
Why? It was SUNNY and 63 degrees Fahrenheit today! Haha, not that I'm complaining too much or anything--it just feels weird to think about all this Christmas stuff when I'm comfortably taking walks outside in the beautiful sunshine without a scarf or a hat.
So, just be jealous that the weather has been so nice here the past couple of days. I think there may be some rain later this week...but it's still nothing compared to freezing temperatures and snow! I will have to try harder to get in the Christmas spirit by bombarding myself with Christmas movies and treats. I'm looking forward to two holiday get-togethers later this week, which I think will help with that!
Also, I really need to get started on my Christmas shopping!
