Good afternoon, everyone! Hope this finds you all well! I'm just trying to keep warm. It's been snowing off and on this am and DH and EA have been having fun in the snow. I on the hand have caught a cold and felt worse this morning, so I am trying to just feel and am spending sometime with DS and getting caught up on here.

It's lunch time here in Pa, so we're making a pizza and DH just got some homemade chicken noodle soup on the stove a little while ago for dinner.

Nothing new to really report. I hope you're all having a wonderful day! To all of you who headed back to work today, hope it's going well!

Thinking about you Stacey!

I've been off since Dec 23rd too! I'm hating life a little bit today because of being back at work but trying to stay positive. I couldn't go to sleep for anything last night. If I wasn't half-awake I was dreaming about work. Uuugh.

On the other hand...we did get some flurries, which I loved, so that was awesome. It doesn't snow here much and flurries are perfect because the roads don't get bad. We don't know how to drive in the snow around here.

I need to get into proactive/productive mode but I'm just not sure if today is the day...maybe tomorrow? hah hah.

Just wanted you to know I just ordered the Time-Life book and I can't wait to get my hands on it!

Speaking of, The Time Life Book of Christmas, I just went online with my local library and put in a request for it since it's at another location in my city. It will probably take a couple of days to arrive at the library near me. I'm looking forward to getting it!

Thanks for the info!!!

I had a 4x4 Cherokee up until the hail storm this summer so I was completely fine when it snowed. Now...I'm kind of dreading any icy conditions!

We had some snow flurries about an hour ago. Very pretty-looked like being inside a snow globe. It is also very cold and windy. Just right for January!

Good afternoon!

snowflake:my thoughts and prayers are with you! ((((hugs))))

MerryCarey: I just ordered Bigelow's vanilla chai - I had some last year - yummy and it smells so good!

iliam: good to see you on the Countdown!

Still very chilly out. Somebody brought me takeout for lunch - finally had the Whopper I have been wanting for a few days now. Work has picked up, so the music is off so I can concentrate when I head back to it in a few minutes.

Stay safe and warm, everyone!

If you get the 1987 edition, I bet you'll all LOVE it. It's one of my favorite just-leaf-through-it-at-random Christmas books. When you get it, let me know what you think!

Must give that a try to tide me over until next year's Holiday Chai---I like vanilla. Thanks for the suggestion! (Like I need another box of flavored tea bags! Well, I'll keep the vanilla chai at the office!)
