***** CHRISTMAS SEASON DAY 34 *****



Good Morning, new week Friends.

Now hold on to your Santa hat and any stub of a pipe you may have, because it is my duty as countmeister to warn you that this is the LAST - yes - the FINAL full week before Christmas Day 2013.
(Better rush those plans to conclusion post haste!)

Days to Christmas Day: 9 (SINGLE DIGITS!!!)

Coolish but dry yesterday. Really not too bad for mid December.
Should be clear again today with a high in the 50's.
We stand just under 32 degrees here in the capital city at this hour to start the new week.

Have a Marvelous Monday, Folks!
And may the power of the Season be with you.

Good Morning MMC!!!!!! It's going to be another cold day here in central Indy with a high in the mid 20's. We got about another inch and a half of snow last night. Which normally wouldn't be a big deal but apparently the city didn't send the full fleet of plows out and the roads were terrible this morning. In fact, my aunt got rear ended again by a teenage girl. Luckily it wasn't as bad as it was a couple of months ago but she is going to need another rear bumper cover. The snow has stopped now though so it's time for me to get out there and shovel. I also need to spend the day cleaning the apartment. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!

My teeth and body are chattering and shivering so much it is making me mess up more than I usually do with my typing!! no really is it!!! I guess I slept with the heater too low cause this 4F temps are getting to me this morning! I hope everyone has a great morning, I just can't believe next week is the big week this year it has gone by too fast...it's just amazing!

Hope you have warmed up by now Dawg!!!!!

Good Morning to all! Just sitting here listening to beautiful Christmas music and planning out the week. I had knee surgery Friday and it's still sore but getting better. I still have some gifts to paint so I'd better get busy on it. I hope you all have a great week!

Thankfully it didn't take too long for the owner to find us. The woman said he gets out from under the fence. Well then maybe it would be a good idea to do something about that! Grrrr. Anyway, I'm happy they were reunited and he was safe and sound. He was a sweet adorable dog.

we had neighbor once that had an escape artist of a dog, did not matter what they did he found a way around, under or over. Everyone in the neighborhood knew about it and helped bring him home when he got out. He did wear a collar and tags though.

At least he wasn't hurt and didn't hit anyone else. So after i checked the car out, it was off to the funeral home. It was good to see some old friends but that's not how I wanted to do it. Then it was off to lunch with my sister and niece's and then off to the train. It was a lot of fun. Santa was really good and took time to visit with each kid and then sat down for photo's. He even led everyone in a bunch of Christmas songs. (note to self, we need to listen to frosty more often) Mrs. Claus though, well she must have been tired after baking everyone cookies because she just kind of walked through the train and didn't really do anything. The kids didn't care though. They were all hyped up and going crazy. After the train ride we stopped and did some shopping and then went to dinner. Then it was home to do some wrapping while listening to the greasy skillet and watching White Christmas.
Glad your BIL wasn't hurt! Sounds like a great evening on the train!! Glad you enjoyed it.
