This here is a webcam showing the hill " Seebodenalp"above our village (leading to the mountain):

This one is from the mountain itself. The Rigi is our "house" mountain, because my village lays at the bottom of it:

I hope your son will feel better soon.
It is night in your area and cannot see a thing right now, so I will go back and look tomorrow.
Thanks for the links!

My mother went ahead and took my granddaughter home with her around 2 pm so I could get some sleep. I was so tired but was unable to sleep so I just laid in bed all day watching Christmas movies, Miracle on 34th Street, Brady Bunch Christmas, A Christmas Carol (Patrick Stewart), A Christmas Story and A Charlie Brown Christmas.

I feel just okay today but going to try and get some things done around the house.

Have a Merry Day my Christmas Friends!
hope you are feeling better now!

I miss it on here, been thinking of you all and hope you all are ok.

Just stopping by quickly so you all don't forget about me !
Sending prayers for a speedy recovery for your son (((hugs)))

Good evening!
I have been on the run all day and I am finally able to settle down and rest. My husband is doing some work in the house but I am going to ask him to stop soon, I need to go to sleep early. He decided he wanted to do a coffered ceiling in our living room, so that is what he is working on tonight. I didn't even know what it was, he had to show me pictures. Every time I turn around, he's building something else. I can't wait until he starts to paint. He told me we will design the kitchen cabinets when he is finished painting. One of these days.
Not too much else going on here. Just trying to keep up with all of my household chores on the days I have to work. I don't know how women go to work all day and still keep up with everything else. I think they are amazing. I'm pretty sure this is just going to be a seasonal job for me.
I hope everyone is doing well and had a wonderful day. Can't believe tomorrow is Friday already!

Well talk about a fun evening, My aunt got into a car accident on the way home from work. My aunt was stopped at a red light and a girl in a mazda just plowed into her, went up underneath her car, and shoved her sportage into an Esclade that was in front of her. The lady didn't even try to stop. She told my aunt that she remember's hitting her brakes and then she blacked out. Well my aunt's car had the radiator busted so she called me to come get her. I got there about the same time the cop did. While I was walking up it was clear to me what had happened and the cop apparently smelled the same thing I did. He went up to the young girl who was on her cell phone and told her to get off. She didn't listen. So he told her again. She didn't listen again. Then she tried to walk away. So he grabbed the phone out of her hand, turned it off, and threw it on the hood of her car. Then he proceeded to handcuff her and put her in the back of the cop car. He then walked back up to the car and took out her purse and pulled out a little margarine bowl. When he opened it, it was filled with weed. Which didn't shock me because her car reeked of it and I could smell it from 15 feet away. So I'm sure the girl was smoking and not paying attention when she ran into my aunt. There was no skid marks at all so if she tried to stop, it wasn't until she was right up on her. So after all the paper work was filled out, my mom had a wrecker that they use at the dealership she works for come pick it up and tow it there so she could go ahead and get the paperwork started tonight on it. Then I took my aunt home and waited while she called the insurance company to file a claim so I could take all the numbers to mom. Luckily, my aunt wasn't hurt. She is pretty stiff and I expect she will be worse in the morning but nothing that required an ambulance or anything.

As for me, I'm exhausted. I obviously couldn't drive with the boot on so I've been running around without it all night. So my foot is throbbing pretty good now. So I'm going to sign off for the night and put this foot up. I have to take my aunt to get a rental car in the morning and to mom's work to sign some paperwork, so I'll be late checking in.

Goodnight, Everyone!!!!!!

Sorry to hear about your aunt's accident Mark. But glad she's ok!! I'd be furious :/

Maybe she should see a chiropractor at least? He could take X-rays and check it out, in case she had issues later on.

Keeping her in my prayers!

Hope your foot feels better!
