Good morning, everybody! Hope you enjoyed your Friday night. I'm jealous that we don't have any snow, but I wouldn't want to be without power. I hope you are all ok and don't get too cold.

My agenda for today included doing a little work...maybe a little house cleaning....and going to a hunting show with the in laws and family. Then out to eat for the wifey's birthday....

Have a good one!

xmas365 and all New Englanders, I hope you're warm and safe. Looks like today will be shoveling and movies. Nobody's going anywhere for a while.
So good to hear from you!! Glad you got your power back. Enjoy your movies & time with Mr., and take good care of yourselves. xx

The coverage on the Weather channel are unbelievable with all the snow! We are still praying for those that are dealing with this situation!

Here's hoping you and Wayne feel better soon ! xoxo
