He's requested chicken soup, so I'll simmer some carrots and diced potatoes in chicken broth before he comes home. That's my quickie boxes-and-cans version of chicken soup.

I love it and honored to have this job! The kids love being here too, we have a lot of fun! I also have my part time job too at the feed store. The hours are perfect in both areas!
That is so sweet CAH!

No plans for the day. We're nearly finished our Christmas decorating in the apartment. We just need to make a few purchased. I think this morning will be spent with a little bit of shopping.

At least all this shopping will give me the opportunity to take some photos of Christmas decorations in the mall. I haven't been in more than a month, so it will be very exciting to see!

Well, time to get ready and head out in a bit. Have a great Thursday, everyone. It's the Christmas Season. Let's continue to enjoy it to the fullest!

Merry Christmas!
I hope you enjoy your visit with your dad!

But can I tell you, I was shocked at how many 20-somethings were there for having shoplifted useless items from places like CVS and Rite-Aid. Don't these young people understand that this goes on their record, and when they apply for a job they will be obligated to state that they have been arrested? Honest to goodness, you would think that with everything else the schools teach these days, they would have the kindness to have someone tell the kids "Hey, don't shoplift...you'll have to tell your future employers for the rest of your lives that you got caught." I know that ideally parents should do this, but obviously a lot of them are falling down on the job. I could understand stealing food....times are bad right now. But the junk these young people took? Useless! I was so sorry for them...they couldn't think it through before they did it, and now their lives are messed up for some useless thing that they didn't even need.
That's so sad to hear MerryBells!

I hope you are feeling better!

You don't have to spray that much. I love it!
My mother just told me about this the other day! I have to look for it, thanks for the reminder!

Yesterday I ended up getting a migraine so today I am not very energetic. It is very windy and cold out, too, so it is a good day to stay in and work on projects.

Be MERRY!
Sending up prayers for your nephew.
I hope you are feeling better today!
