I'm glad she's ok. I watch blood pressure pretty closely these days, too.

And now I am home again.

My book is calling me so I am going upstairs
Good night everyone!!
I never considered that we might have hardened criminals among us here. I guess you alcoholic car thieves love Christmas, too!

Good Thursday morning, my Christmas friends!

It's much warmer this morning than it was yesterday afternoon, close to 60°F. I'd love to get a chance to wear a longsleeve shirt sometime this year.

Speaking of clothes, I'm wearing some new jeans I bought last weekend. They are two sizes smaller than everything else I have, and I think I could have gotten away with another size down! Even my belt is too long now.

I hope y'all have a great day!

love your view! Mine is a very short view, but at least I have some trees! I hope what ever is being built will not block your view of the barn.

Good night everyone!!
That is quite a day!!

Glad your Mom is ok xo

And I'm glad that you got pulled over by a nice & handsome cop! Better that than the alternative, right?

Enjoy your book!

That is the temporary construction yard. Our development is new, and they're still building- in the last phase. Harlowe likes to look out that window and bark at the guys when they go in their connex =)

We do have pine trees outside our bedrooms, which is great! Feels like Christmas all the time!

Good morning! Another bitter day here so doing some more cleaning, rearranging, crafting, cooking, and baking!! Maybe we will venture into the cold to the library. It's only across the street but I dread going out in this cold weather with the kidS!
