A tremendous thunderstorm rolled through here this morning ... actually, instead of rolling, it sat on us for about an hour. After it went, the electricity went out for about 15 minutes, but we seem to be okay now. We couldn't do anything while the power was out, so we're just lying around.

No big plans for today. That's okay, because the weather wouldn't cooperate anyway!

I wondered what that wonderful aroma was, Minta. You can't go wrong with any Christmas movie! Have fun!

Was flipping through the channels on tv earlier and came across Christmas with the Kranks. So of course I just had to watch it. Now I am tempted to go watch another Christmas Movie. The big question is which one?

Have a great night!

Hoping something comes along soon!

In the South, at least where I am from, this was also called a "writin' spider." Whenever we saw one, we would cover our mouths to keep the spider from seeing our teeth. According to the "old wives' tale," if this spider saw your teeth, it would write your name in its web, and you would die! If you look at the web, you will notice the zigzag line. Kids thought this was evidence of the spider trying to write names in the web. I am sure we kids looked funny standing around looking at this spider and its web with our mouths covered. Even to this day, I am tempted to cover my mouth when I see one!!!

"Stunt gardener"? There were two movies mentioned. Which one were you referring to? I think I will check them both!
