Okay, what’s your score?
I got a 9, but I live in Michigan and somethings are just not up here. Like satsumas (we have tangerines), no mistletoe, oysters run about $1.50 each (though I have shucked them when we come down for the winter, I LOVE OYSTERS!!!), no pecans. But, today as I put up my Christmas tree and the fireplace burning I was sooo hot, putting on shorts would have been great.
I am jealous of the weather. We started out in the 50s Monday, Today we were in the 70s and by friday 30s with winter mix. I will need to remind myself this weekend I still live in the south.
I would be embarrassed to tell you how high my score was. Certainly enjoyed every minute of it tho.
How sad I only got three points! 🙂
But I’m sure they were three really good points!
