Our Weekend

It snowed on and off throughout the weekend except for today. It was clear and sunny and felt warmer than the reported high of 19F degree temperature at the airport.

John and I went shopping to get some winter gear. I picked up a couple of snow boots (hard to believe I don't have any going into our third winter in Reno-Tahoe-Sparks). 

These Joan of Article by Sorel and Keen Bern Baby Bern boots. Both waterproof but the former has heavier duty insulation.

Then we went to lunch at Josef's Vienna Café (which also has a nice bakery inside). We tried their sandwiches, soups, and salad - all yummy. I think the freshly baked bread makes it all better...oh and the homemade butter cookie included with the meal.

We also picked up a silver tip Christmas tree from a local Boy Scout lot. We started to decorate the outside of our house after we got home. 

Things are coming along nicely even though we told ourselves that we would not get carried away with the decorations this year.

Now John has the flu so we are waiting for him to get better before putting ornaments on the tree, it is a family tradition that we like to enjoy together while playing Christmas music and drinking egg nog.

This is my last week of the semester with two more class meetings to go. Then I get to come home to our family instead of staying on campus late.

I cannot believe how fast Christmas is approaching. So much to do before then!!
