Cold Weather

The cold weather has arrived. We haven't had any bad weather yet and I am hoping that we don't for a little while longer.  I had to chuckle to myself tonight, my youngest grandson wanted to know why my laundry was at his house. I told him mommy did it because my dryer is broke. I had been drying some things  on a dryer rack in the bathroom.
I wasn't really ready to start with winter clothes. I was getting spoiled with the warmer weather, but it is December. The Christmas shopping is done and my daughter even helped to wrap it for me. It was really fun having someone to shop with and she did the driving. I just rode and enjoyed every minute of it. I went up and saw my other half tonight. He would be talking and the next minute  he would be sleeping in his wheelchair.  They were going to come and put him to bed when I left.  He is a little discourage because of it being the holidays and he knows he won't be able to go out for Christmas. I told him his grandsons already have it planned how they are going to help him celebrate Christmas. They won't tell me it is a surprise. 
I am baby sitting this Saturday Evening with my older two grandsons. We are going to go see hubby at the nursing home, then out for supper, just my two boys and me. I don't know where we will go for supper, but I am sure they will pick some place good. 
My oldest made a gift box with his scroll saw and I can't wait to see the finished box. His top looked like a gift with the ribbon design he made. I got to see that part and it was awesome. He was also helping make Christmas ornaments for teachers and some others. One was an old-fashioned sleigh with Santa saying Merry Christmas underneath the sleigh. It was really neat. He is very good in woodworking. 
We want to  wish all of you Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. I will be stopping by as often as I can. Your friendship means the world to me and is helping get through our trying times. Progress is very slow.
