My heart just sank since they said just 9 more shopping says until the bid day! Where in the world has the time gone. Honestly the last 4 years my post Christmas blues have been controllable since I became a member here, but for some reason I think this year is going to be horrid maybe because the holidays were so short this year and all the loss I have suffered 2013...I will be here probably starting the PCB thread this year! I usually don't get them until around New Years Eve. oh well have a great days friends!
Thinking of you, friend.

Sending love, prayers, and cheer your way!

((Hugs))

I am TERRIBLE at wrapping presents...does anyone have any tips?! My dad loves to wrap them and offered to do it for me but I feel like that's part of the fun of getting people gifts!

We're having a cozy day inside. We are ordering in for dinner today so no one has to go out in the snow. I plan to make hot chocolate later while we watch Christmas movies. I love days like these!
So happy to hear that your Mom is feeling better! 👍💗
Keeping her in my prayers.

Good luck w/ the wrapping!! I am not that great at it either

Good evening, MMC!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!!! Several inches of snow and it is still falling. I even made some snow cream - I have most of it in the freezer for a treat later in the week.

Busy day here: worked on tasks for the store I could do at home, swept off the porch several times and worked on an afghan. My voice is coming and going so I made a spicy dish for dinner, Thai peanut chicken. Yummy!

Palmer has been hugging the heat registers and as a result keeps getting zapped by things - she has quite the electrifying personality!

The local radio station played their top 10 Christmas songs as voted on by the local listeners: Holly, Jolly Christmas was number one. I'm so bummed - can't get the Greasy Skillet on the radio tonight nor can I get the player to load on my computer. I hate missing the Christmas shows - RJD does such a wonderful job recording them!!!

I have to work tomorrow - not looking forward to it as I am still feeling quite under the weather. An early night is most definitely called for!

Be safe and MERRY dreams!!!

Talk to you guys tomorrow! Enjoy the rest of your evening! God Bless!
Hope you have a good nap & night at work!

Drive safe!!

I just got home from work, and the snow hasn't let up all day ❄️ The roads are slick. But the snowflakes are so big & pretty!!

Good evening,

Another very busy day at work, it is now snowing, which will make it look nice and Christmassy.
Looks like I'll be shovelling out tomorrow, my wife gets the day off since tomorrow is her birthday.

Taking it easy tonight watching Christmas With The Kranks.

Good night, all.

Hank, Rick , John, Bill, me, Rycki with our mom in front . Albert is missing he would be between Bill and me.

We were so surprised when Rick showed up unannounced all the way from British Columbia, I thought mom was going to faint when he walked in.
It has been 10 years since we had Rick here.
It was a wonderful party!
Great photo, CS!!

What a wonderful day you must've had 💚

Today our high was 31F and tonight we are forecast to go to 5F with high of around 25 on Sunday with constant freezing fog and drizzle.

We are about to put dinner on, we have invited a lady from church to eat dinner and visit with us tonight. She lost her husband back in August and her kids are grown and have not come yet for the holidays, she said they were coming next weekend so we did not want her to sit around lonely so we have invited her several times to come over. She loves playing with the boys and her and Brandi have a bond because she is a retired school teacher,one night she spent the night because we all stayed up so late drinking wine and socializing playing games. So anyway she may end up spending the night tonight because of the dense fog,in fact I may just insist. Have a good night I have to go put the Duck on!!! We are almost inside the 10 day window!!! G'night!
Glad shopping went well! And that you guys are home safe.

Enjoy the evening w/ your friend!!
