Bad Weather Coming????

    Is the weatherman right? Are we going to get some more?. I did a few errands today just in case  the weather turns bad. They have been talking about it all day and makes you really wonder if it is going to happen. We still have snow on the ground, but they are saying we are going to start with rain, sleet, and snow. I am not going to worry because if they actually are right I will just stay home. 
   My cell phone battery went completely dead today. First time, I have done that, but my son called today and we talked for almost a hour. It was good to hear his voice. He won't be home for Christmas and doesn't know when he is going to come home. He will fly if and when he does because of the unpredictable weather. He might get stranded at the airport so I don't even know if that would be a good idea. He was going to bed after he got through talking because he had to be at work at 3:30 A.M. He had worked almost a 12 hour day yesterday.
     One more custom order to complete then I think I will go back to working on other things. I need to get my Christmas shopping done. We just basically buy for the boys. I usually make the girls something or take it out of my unsold stash as my grandson calls it. 
     They were having a book sale at the nursing home today. I looked, but I thought he was a little high priced on what he had. I know you need to make money, but most of the people don't have money. They got new finches and fish this week. They have several different types of finches and the residents like to go set and watch them. We do that quite often when I go up so that he can get out of his room. 
     We got the results back from his labs. Some things were as expected and they want to redo in a month. They know there is a problem, but not sure as to exactly what we are dealing with. We just take every day that we get and pray for another one. I still say prayers is what has gotten us this far since he first got sick. 
     I have been setting here watching the temperature drop from the time that I got home. It has dropped 12 degrees in roughly three hours. Doing some reading and trying to finish Christmas cards. Hubby keeps asking if I am through. He thinks I have a lot more time then I do. Of course, I don't set an alarm clock anymore. If I want to sleep late, I do. 
      With the unpredictable weather, please be safe and stay warm. Take care.

I love the finches at the nursing homes. That must be "the thing" nowadays. I have been to two different places that have them also.
Have a super day Shirley.

One day at a time is the most that we can hope for.

We are in line for bad weather too!

Hope you are staying safe and warm, Shirley. The weather here in mid-MO started out this morning with freezing rain, then changed into just rain after it warmed up a bit. It's supposed to snow later. I'll be glad when I know my family is home after work all safe and sound. I have most of my shopping done and the couple things I still need to pick up can wait until next week. Take care and I'll say a prayer for your hubby. And, you, too!

Sweet Shirley...you are such a faithful friend. Thank you for your kind words.

My hubby has found a wonderful position and we are so grateful. Just waiting on the final paperwork/background check to be finalized. God is good and always on time.

Stay warm during the bad weather. We are hunkering down in Oklahoma, too!

Merry Christmas with love.
