Good Morning to all of you here in Blog land. We are at 47 degrees this cloudy morning with the possibilities of rain this afternoon and during the weekend. Just what we want going into the weekend, but as the saying goes you take what you get.
I feel for those on the West Coast. Mother Nature hasn't cared where she caused problems for people this year with all of the storms, floods, and etc. Sometimes I think that we take everything for granite that it is not going to happen to us in our area. You just never know.
I know now what it is like to lose my independence and have to rely on other ways of transportation to get around until I can find another car to replace the one that was totaled. I hated to see it go because it was equipped the way I like it. Oh well I didn't have any broken bones still sore and was told it would be a while because it takes longer for it heal. I still know when I move the wrong way it hurts. Coughing and sneezing is really noticeable.
My Ho Ho Ho Santa tea towel that I made this year. I have several in my etsy shop and I thought I would also show you the center of a table cloth that I embroidered. I was going to keep it for myself, but instead it will be sold. The hands have been keeping busy right now also a lot of time spent on the phone with the insurance company. I just wish everything was done and over with.
The boys have started counting days until their uncle will be home. The best Christmas present you can have is the time spent with family and enjoy watching the grandchildren in whatever they are involved in right now.
I can remember walking on top of snowdrifts to make it home for Christmas. The things that we done when we were growing up, we get looked up like we were nuts. The stockings always had an orange and Christmas candy in them. I wish that I could find some of the Christmas candy that we had when we were growing up. How many remember snow ice cream? We couldn't wait for that first snow for that. The snowball fights, building forts, and of course, coasting. Lots of fun.
Hopefully everyone is getting their Christmas shopping done, baking, and making Christmas candy. Divinity, Taffy, and fudge. Remember making home made taffy when I was a child. How we would pull it and mom would cut it after it reached a certain point. Did you ever string popcorn for your Christmas Tree.
Well need to go finish some more paper work . Take care.
