Once again the weather has turned ugly here but while the reports say snow and sleet I have yet to see any. And that is the part that makes me sad. I don’t mind the cold but if it is going to be this cold I want snow darn it! And of course my beloved Nashville got some this past weekend and probably getting some more as I type.
So while I curl up on the couch with a blanket, Chandler and Wookie I realized that I had yet to watch Emmit Otter’s Jug Band Christmas. So we are currently watching it while I daydream about waking up tomorrow to a snowy scene.
The last time I visited DC I finally hit the Smithsonian’s Natural History Museum and American History Museum. Besides getting to look at some really cool dinosaurs; I also got to see Emmit and his Ma live and in person. They were on exhibit as well as several other characters from the Muppets. While Sonia hates puppets and went to check out other exhibits, I wandered through remembering my excitement when I was little. I also teared up a bit because meeting The Chef, Kermit and the rest of the gang meant quite a bit to me.
I also got to see Julia’s kitchen and dreamed of the day that I would have my own kitchen where I could really spread out all of my gadgets. Of course what I wouldn’t give for her spread!
And now, back to Emmit Otter and the hope for some snow.
