Our weekend of magical thinking

So every December Ken and I put out the Snow Village on our dining room hutch. And I enjoyed it so much this year that we didn't take it down. Every night I've lit it up and thought how very pretty it is.

But on Saturday WHEN WE WOKE UP TO SNOW ON THE FIRST DAY OF MAY Ken went, "Maybe if we take down the Snow Village, it will stop." Yes. That's how we think about things at our house. We can control the weather and possibly the universe by taking down the rest of our Christmas decorations. So we took it down. And today it is not snowing.

You're welcome.

And to think all this time I've been blaming my daughters for playing Christmas carols on the piano last week.

Thank you, now will you put up a sunshine village for my Emily's wedding next Saturday?

Also, I am worried because apparently you have not eaten since April 26th and surely you cannot think clearly by now!

And here I thought it was my fault for putting away my winter clothing. Good to know I can blame someone else.

There are things worse than snow on the first day of May. Chuck-E-Cheese in Utah Valley, for one. But thank you for the sunshine. ;-)

Maybe if I stop taking showers, it will stop raining here in Oregon.

May I tell you today is the day that people in Las Vegas say...this is why we live here. Of course this is only one day and tomorrow the wind will start blowing again...but today my friend we have the most amazing day....in 20 seconds it will be 115, so don't hate me because I am so full of my weather self...
And by the way, every time you write..."your welcome" in your blog or column, I laugh out loud!! I feel indebted to you for all the things you have done for me. From the books you have read so I don't have to, to taking down your snow village thing...I appreciate all you do. Carry on.

I thought the snow was MY fault, 'cause I took the snow tires off my car. Generally, that causes blizzard conditions for weeks and weeks.
