I’ve been jumping around from climate to climate in the past few weeks, and I’m not sure if I really like it.
Temperatures hit a low at the beginning of the month in the Bay Area, with temperatures as low as thirty or so degrees in Santa Clara. It was cold! We cranked up the furnace and lit fires in the fireplaces… dug out the ol’ down comforters and fuzzy slippers. Fog loomed in our little cul-de-sac for entire days.
Then I went with my Mom, Dad and brother to Puerto Vallarta earlier this month, to be greeted by tropical temperatures (mid sixties at night to mid eighties during the day) and bright sunlight. It was perfect, actually… no rain and low humidity.
Back to the Bay Area to have Christmas with the rest of my family, which went great. I made some yummy Shrimp and Corn Croquettes for Christmas Eve dinner (which, I will add, I am probably going to be producing again for New Year’s Day). Mom produced way too much food once again, and we were eating all night.
More on Christmas later, though…
So, on Christmas Day, I spent the afternoon and evening travelling out to the Twin Cities of Minnesota to spend some time with K’s family. Now I’m in very cold weather, with snowfall happening on the day before I arrived. The temperatures have actually been rising since I arrived, with it now at twenty-six degrees as I type this (thank you, WeatherPop), and expected rises to the 40′s in the next few days. It’s actually supposed to snow again the day after I leave, so I am not going to be able to witness any snowfall here at all.
We’ll always have Tahoe, I guess. ^_^;;
I hope you are having a lovely holiday season. Thank goodness that the craziness of the season is over… this seems like a very lax time of year, when we can breathe a sigh of relief that the madness is done with and we can ring in the new year with a fresh start.
