"Wait for dawn, and dawn shall come."

There was a chance we'd get snow tonight, but it's been downgraded to something more like sleet. Currently, it's partly sunny and cold, 38˚F, with the windchill at 32˚F. We had one of those weird, weird coastal Rhode Island weather days yesterday. After morning temperatures below freezing, there was an afternoon temperature spike and in one hour (between 16:51 and 17:51) we went from 36˚F to 54˚F. By late morning, before dawn, we were back down to 26˚F. That's Rhode Island. Over the next week, we have some brutal cold inbound.

This morning we were up and out early, to the market for Christmas Eve dinner makings. Spooky's still sick, so I'm doing the cooking. Special Xmas Eve spicy hot spaghetti and meatballs. And I'm gonna bake some gingerbread. I think half of Providence was doing last minute shopping at Eastside Market and Whole Foods. Oh, and I got clementines and madeleines. My teeth can't handle pecan pie, but dammit, I can eat some madeleines.

Last night, we watched Bob Clark's A Christmas Story (1983) and Frank Capra's It's a Wonderful Life (1946). I think a lot of people might fail to appreciate what that It's a Wonderful Life is darkly beautiful film. And if you clip off the ending, it's pretty much a template for half the episodes of The Twilight Zone ever filmed.

Okay, now I gotta wash some dishes.

TTFN,
Aunt Beast

I love "It's a Wonderful Life"! It probably saved me one year. Hope your shopping trip paid off with a nice dinner.
