We Had A White Christmas For Sure!!

Poor neighbor missed the one spot he could have gotten through. Along the fence behind we have 6 foot pines that are drifted in.

Church was cancelled for today since this is a farming community and we are all in the same drift.

Sure was beautiful to watch it swirling around. While you prayed for the electricity to stay on. It did, thank you Lord.

Just an update on our neck of the woods, Bless You all. Marj

Oh the possibilities are endless. Can't wait to speak with my daughter and see what goodies we can cook up together before April or May.
The Lord decides when and we are just thrilled.
Congratulations to all of the family of man.

Aspirin and a Stiff Shot of Jack

ought to fix this back. Unfortunately for me, fortunate for all I'd encounter, I do not drink. So I took the aspirin.
My hubby decided to play "good egg" today and help me with a few things. I was thankful for the help.
No present wrapping yet since I forgot a homemade item for them all, easy to do, just a bit time consuming. Teach me to brag I'm all done.

I really enjoy the Christmas season. The church cookie exchanges, programs, etc. What makes Christmas special for you?

Hey Kids, What Time Is It?

It's time for Christmas Shopping. (Don't hate me because I am all done)
I still have to wrap umpteen gifts and I have been finished for, hmmmmmm, about a month. Mercy, the postman in our small town of 250 people is going to be so disgusted with me. Nothing like waiting till the last minute to mail.
I hope you all have a fantastic week-end, find bargains galore then hurry and beat me to the mail box. lolol
Toodles for today.

Hello My Two Followers

I have missed you. lol

I would much rather do gourds, painting, beading, and just general Christmas gift making than that nasty four letter word called work.

Houses need cleaned, food needs cooked, floors need scrubbed, (yes, I still do that.) We won't say how, but it gets done. So when I am absent it is with good reason.

I have also not felt well. So forgive me until I return, and I must now find out why this Save Now button is automatically doing an autosave. GRR. Catch ya later

Quite the switch up round here

We had a gorgeous day of sunshine today. I loved it!! It sure beat yesterday, when I awoke to no electricity. (Naturally our heat out here in the boonies needs electricity to kick on) Perfect excuse for sitting in a chair bundled up with my 2 poodles on my lap. Believe you me, that is just what I did. Stick a hand out and read the Bible or a magazine for awhile then shove it under again for warmth. That got old by 4 p. m. Had to call hubby's work and they brought me (us) out a generator and heater to use.
So, do you think they deserve a plate of cookies or some fudge? I sure do. Even though the electicity was on half an hour after they got me fixed is such a blessing to know they are kind and caring people.
Enough of this woman's country rambling........later.
