On a similar note, Husband did 2 amusing things today. As a bit of a disclaimer, Husband and I have most of the same tastes, and he is not being mean if he tells me something does not look good. Most of the time I agree in the end. I was trying on the clothes and he was giving me his opinion. I put on this black button up shirt, that only had 2 buttons in the middle, and it was a bit big. He wasn't paying attention to me at the moment, and when I asked him, "Does this look stupid on me?" He turned and glanced for a second before saying "yes." Haha. For some reason it struck me as hilarious. This is not abnormal behavior from him, and I never take offense at that from him, but I was thinking about how other women would probably be hurt or offended by that remark. I, on the other hand, laugh and agree.
Amusing moment number 2. Referring to my moment a week or 2 ago, and my Christmas obsession, while we did the dishes tonight, I conversationally brought up when I could start decorating, and kiddingly asked if I could start now. Totally seriously, he replied "yes." I stopped talking and just sat there, "oh...". Husband started laughing and was like, "You didn't expect that, did you? I took the wind right out of you!" It threw me off so much, especially when he said that he likes to decorate a bit early for it. Husband doesn't care about Christmas. It doesn't excite him or anything. Where on earth did this come from?? Anyway, so I might start a bit early, in November, so we don't get so sick of it all, but it was nice to know that he doesn't care...unlike some families who insist on after Thanksgiving.
I love decorating before then. I don't see the point in only having the decorations up for a month.
Anyway, here are some pictures.
This was a couple weeks ago. I think the contrast between snow on the hill and not on the trees is fascinating.
