Anyway, not much has been going in Aberdeen recently, except a whole bunch of random things. So here's to a pretty random blog post:
1.) Its. Been. Cold. Pretty much every morning the weather has "felt like" 15 degrees and it hasn't gone above 36 degrees. We have had snow on the ground since Tuesday night, and in some parts of Aberdeen, Saturday night. Unfortunately, since we live in the city, it doesn't stick as much as in the country. I did my first drive in the snow, and I am still deciding if it is easier or harder than driving in the rain. I am still so nervous to drive after my issue last week, so I have been walking to the gym. The sidewalks are very icy, but I have yet to slip on my behind.
Cupcakes!3.) The darkness is really difficult but we only have about 13 more days until the daylight begins to increase. Come on Decemeber 21st!!

a.) Union Street has lights above the street that are only on when it is dark - well that is for 17 hours of the day, I guess.
Like I said, not much has been going on but walking in the cold which ends up being sweating in the cold from walking so fast and up small hills. The winter has only started, and we have been told that we are expecting a bad winter. Im not sure if that means icy or snowy or windy or all of the above. Good luck to us!
A 100-bulb strand of Christmas lights costs $50, and you cannot connect them. Eeeekkkk!!!
P.S. I was too lazy to proofread this blog, so I apologize for any mistakes!
