Happy New Year to all! I am feeling better tonight. The sinus congestion has decreased and I am not coughing as much. I have tomorrow off thankfully. I didn't make any plans for tonight (usually don't) but the city is humming with activity because of all of the people camping out and driving the parade route. At midnight the noise level will increase for a while and then subside some for a few hours. Then early tomorrow morning people will start parking in my neighborhood and walk to the parade route. The problem is they aren't quiet as they proceed towards that route. Oh well, it only happens once a year.

JANET, I WISH IT WAS WET AND WINDY HERE, BUT IT'S ONLY COLD AND WINDY, AS FOR DEBBIE, I DO WONDER IF SHE IS IN A SHELTER OR OUTSIDE, EITHER WAY I CAN'T DO ANYTHING FOR HER I KNOW THE LORD IS DEALING WITH HER, IT TRULY IS OUT OF MY HANDS.

Ann I know every single one of those caps are appreciated by their new owner.
Oh dear, sounds like your work place is after every pound of flesh these days!! Oh well, it's a job I suppose!!

Very wet and windy weather here again today...I quickly went out to my class weigh in and home again in the warm! Have a doctor's appointment tomorrow morning but the weather looks set for the next 5 days they say!

Sadie---I think it was a good idea to block Debbie's facebook account. Viewing it would probably only cause you emotional problems. You don't need that. Debbie will just have to take care of herself now. You have done what you could and it wasn't appreciated. Let the Lord take care of her.

The director gave me the day off yesterday and several others also or they only worked half a day. We had so few kids in the school we only needed about 4 adults to supervise them all. On Thursday we only had 4 babies but 5 staff members came to work. Three were sent home. I didn't lose any pay for the time off but the director says I owe her an hour since everyone else only got 4 hours off and I got 5. I normally work 5. It seems a bit petty to ask me to work one hour when it was the director who decided to give me the day off. Oh well, I will just work that hour and keep quiet.

I have another cold. It seems I just get over one and along comes another one. I have felt sleepy all day and have been sneezing a lot. I wanted to get some yard work done today but just didn't have the energy to do it. It will still be there whenever I get to it. Thankfully this time of the year the grass doesn't grow very fast but there are lots of leaves on the front yard that need to be raked up. When the leaves stay on the lawn too long it starts to kill the grass so I will have to get them picked up soon.

I don't think I mentioned that I donated 30 knit caps to a local homeless shelter on Christmas Eve. Whenever I take knit caps there the people are always happy to see them. It feels good to know I have done something to give a little bit of comfort to those who don't have much.

Sorry I left you two chatting...the days seem to have flown by.

Ann, that was lovely to read that all was resolved and no ill feelings for the day. Your food sounded very nice and how blessed you are with those lovely presents. I'm glad all is well again.

SADIE...POOR YOU AND JANET LYNN. PRAYING THAT DEBBIE GETS SOME ACCOMMODATION AND ALL SETTLES DOWN AGAIN. I THINK AS MOMS WE ALWAYS CARE ABOUT OUR CHILDREN BUT SOMETIMES WE NEED TO BE DETACHED BECAUSE THEIR BEHAVIOUR IS UNACCEPTABLE...LIKE DEBBIE'S. I KNOW THAT IS UNLIKELY TO CHANGE THOUGH.
I'D TRY AND RESIST LOOKING AT HER FACEBOOK PAGE BECAUSE IT WILL JUST HURT YOU AND YOU KNOW THAT PEOPLE WHO KNOW YOU AND HER KNOW WHAT'S GOING ON. emoticon

My day was lovely...we went to Sarah's and enjoyed the fun and laughs with my grandsons. There were 10 of us there. The food was good and I managed to curb any excesses!!

Sadie---It's time to let Debbie suffer the consequences of what she has done whatever they are. She has put herself in the position she is in. You or your family should not feel that you have to do anything for her anymore. As for the lies she is telling about you, those that know you won't pay any attention to them. Leave the rest to the Lord.

Christmas went well with my son and dil. I was concerned that there might be some stress after the disagreement but I didn't sense any. Our meal went well; we had the turkey ham and scalloped potatoes. I brought some sauteed vegetables, a salad and a chocolate cream pie. All of us felt stuffed after dinner so desert waited a couple of hours. We looked at some old pictures that my brother-in-law had put onto discs and then watched a movie. When the gift from my son and dil was given to me I have to admit I felt a bit guilty. My oven hasn't worked for a couple of years so they bought me a convection oven. I can now bake again. I have been making do with a little toaster oven. Being able to bake normally once again will be nice. They also bought tickets to take me to Huntington Gardens sometime in the next couple of months. It's my choice as to when we will go. I am thinking sometime in March when the flowers are beginning to bloom.

Sadie---I am so sorry to hear about the difficulties you have had with Debbie lately. Why would she call the police on you? I can thoroughly understand why you don't want her back in your house again. It seems that every time she comes around she makes bigger problems for you. She should have been grateful that you picked her up and brought her to your house since she had no other place to go. Praying for peace for you and for the Lord to open Debbie's eyes.

Janet---I well know about those gale force winds. That's what happened here 2 years ago. Will be praying that the next storm doesn't cause any damage and that you and Joseph are safe. Will you be spending Christmas with your family?

I heard from both my son and dil. We have resolved our differences and will be having dinner together tomorrow. They decided to go with turkey ham and scalloped potatoes but just a short while ago I heard from my dil who said they hadn't gone to the store to get the ham yet. Sigh...I told her that she may not be able to find one this late but if she can't to just get some chicken breasts. The chicken can bake while the potatoes are baking. At this point I am not going to be fussy! I will be taking a salad, some veggies and a desert (chocolate cream pie!). Next year I hope we can plan things better.

Hope all of you are having a peaceful, love-filled Christmas.

Wishing everyone a very happy Christmas and an even better and healthier new year!

Just a quick update...
We had hurricane gale force winds last night...pretty scary and I didn't get much sleep during the night. We found a damaged fence panel but thankfully nothing else. There is much flooding in the country with no trains or planes moving. This of course affects people's travel arrangement for the season. Joseph's sister wasn't able to come for lunch today because she couldn't get a train. The storms are due back again on Friday!!

Judi, I'm praying for you and your sisters...you all need better health quickly and our God is ABLE!!

SADIE...OH DEAR, I KNOW HOW DIFFICULT IT IS FOR YOU TO HAVE DEBBIE. PRAYING YOU CAN FIND HER ACCOMMODATION VERY SOON. WHY IS SHE IN A WHEELCHAIR NOW, I THINK THAT IS NEW? PRAYING FOR YOU...

Oh Ann, what a difficult situation. Is it possible they could come to your house...short notice now I know. I think we all want to be feel included in these family times and I hope your son and dil can do that for you.

I am sorry, my friend. I will be praying for you. I, too, will be alone this year. But not really, the Lord will be here with me. My son and his wife have other plans. The rest of my immediate family are all deceased except cousins, so there is no one.. If there is any way you can be with your son I hope that happens for you. Just try to remember that there are many people who will be "alone" this Christmas without the Lord. HE WILL be with you. God bless you. Judi emoticon

It looks like I will be spending Christmas alone this year. This is because of a difference of opinion over what food we (myself, son and dil) might have for Christmas dinner. Yesterday my dil emailed me that she was going to have chicken salad sandwiches for our meal and wanted me to bring a salad or desert. I told her I had no problem with bringing the salad and a desert but did we really have to have sandwiches? She then replied that she had decided to make tuna casserole. To me that seemed worse than sandwiches. I explained to her that to me tuna casserole was something served when you were low on money and there wasn't any other option. I also asked why we couldn't have something like a turkey ham or possibly chicken breasts (she doesn't eat beef or pork), something that seemed a little more special. I offered to make scalloped potatoes or some kind of rice dish to go with it plus the salad and desert. That would mean that all she would have to do would be the meat. Then my son got into the middle of it and said that Christine was feeling a bit stressed lately and that they both were a bit burned out with the holidays because they had hosted a lot of people at their house lately so wanted to keep things simple. He also said that each time we got together for something like this it was always at their place which made it hard for them. I reminded him that we only get together at their place for 3 holidays, Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas and that I wasn't aware that they found it a hardship to have me over for dinner. I then said something I shouldn't have but did. I said that if I was causing them so much stress and if it was so difficult for them to have me over then I would stay home. I did not get a reply to this so I tried calling my son. He didn't answer so I left a message. Half an hour later he still hadn't called back so I called again but once again I had to leave a message asking him to please call me. I waited an hour but still didn't get a call so tried again. This time I apologized for what I had said and for any problem or stress I may have caused for him and my dil. I again asked him to call me but it has been nearly 2 hours and he hasn't called.

I am feeling very hurt and abandoned right now.

My sisters, I need your prayers. I went to the doctor yesterday and my heart rate was 47. I have what is called a Left Branch Bundle Block in my heart. I have to keep my heart rate in the 50's. No lower and no higher. I take a medicine called Coreg. They decreased it a little. My heart rate has been as low as 44. I have know about this condition for some time but they informed me yesterday that if it got close to 40 to call an ambulance. I do have to go to back to a new cardiologist and go from there. I also have Menieres Disease (an inner ear dizziness disorder) with a Balance Disorder phase and I fall very easily. That also is out of control at this point. I am in physical therapy to make my legs stronger so that I can protect myself better when I lose my balance. (All of this makes fitness exercises very difficult) So, the nest time you speak with our Father, please mention my name. I am so grateful. I am attaching a song link for you. Listen to the lyrics. Beautiful A Capella hymn. Thanks. Judi

Oh Ann, I think I'd be feeling those changes about the meal etc like you...sounds like someone has decided to severely cut back on the budget for what would usually be a joyous occasion...

Well done Judi...your progress is an inspiration to us all. I've known members lose 100lbs but I don't think I've ever met anyone with 200+lbs. Your pic looks stunning too!! I'm sure people who knew you hardly recognise you these days!!

SADIE...YES EAGER LITTLE EYES AND TUMMIES!! I MADE MY CARROT CAKE AND BOY, IT WAS TOO GOOD!! HAVE TO STAY AWAY FROM THAT NOW! I GAVE SOME TO MY MATT AND HE LOVED IT TOO!

At the risk of sounding ungrateful and petty I am going to air my feelings about our staff luncheon today.

In years past we have had a very nice luncheon paid for by the school for the staff the Friday before Christmas. Usually some kind of small bonus or little gift is also given to everyone. The area where the luncheon takes place is usually decorated and Christmas music is normally played. In other words, it is normally festive and a nice time of fellowship. Today it was anything but that.

The school did provide food for the luncheon but there was no music and no decorations. By the time I went to get some food there was very little left and the atmosphere was not festive. Very little conversation went on and the director and assistant director were not present for most of the time. Usually both spend the entire time (about 2 hours) with the staff. There was no pressing reason for either of them to be absent. Many of us just got our food, ate and had some small talk with those sitting nearby. Usually there is lots of conversation and lots of laughter. What was noticeably missing was the yearly bonus/gift and no explanation. The school is not suffering financially. We have full enrollment and a wait list for all classrooms. The food was good but skimpy. This luncheon is supposedly given to show the school's appreciation for the hard work we do every day. I honestly felt less than appreciated today.

I know this sounds ungrateful and I ask you to forgive me. Just needed to get it off my chest.

Judi---Wow! That's a great weight loss! Congratulations! Merry Christmas to you also.

Janet---The director knows about the concerns several of us have about the younger workers. She is going to try to have a meeting on Friday will all of the nursery staff. There is a lot going on that day so I am not very confident that the meeting will happen. She has spoken with the young lady about the incident but not the young man. He hasn't been at work since it happened. I don't know why.

Judi...happy you're chatting along and with y'alls too...we are free here and love to hear from all our members.
Wow...almost down 220lbs...that is an incredible weight loss! How long has that taken you? emoticon emoticon emoticon
Glad your friend is treating you to all those treats!! I'm from England so you may notice a difference in my English to yours!! lol
I was the one talking about the walnuts that I needed to make a carrot cake. I actually made it last night and it is very good!! Have to keep my hands off it too.

SADIE...YOUR WORKERS MUST HAVE BEEN LICKING THEIR LIPS!! THANKS, I KNOW YOU WOULD HAVE GIVEN ME THE WALNUTS.

Ann, indeed that was a scary situation...and PTL He intervened. Can you speak to the director about your concerns...I know everyone has to learn but that scenario could have had a very different ending...

Yes ma'am! But guess what. A friend of mine from high school brought my lunch today and she had made me some peanut butter fudge, along with some other candies. OH MY! One piece a day, well, maybe two. I thanked her, of course, but I gotta be careful with that. Lol. Have a great day and evening,Sadie, my friend. Judi emoticon emoticon emoticon

There was a very scary incident at work yesterday afternoon after I left. We have a 10 month old boy who seems to have a very bad temper. When he doesn't like what is going on he screams. Often we have no idea what is causing him to be upset. Yesterday, one of the young girls was trying to feed him and for some reason he started screaming. The girl wasn't really paying attention to the baby but she gave him some cheerios to eat. At the time she was focused more on the conversation with the young man who started working in the nursery a couple of months ago. All of a sudden she saw the baby shaking but not making any sound. He apparently was shaking as if he were having a seizure. She asked another staff person (older and more experienced) why he was doing that. When that person looked at the baby he was turning blue. He apparently was choking on a cheerio. The older person picked him up, put him tummy down on her arm a whacked him on the back. He began to vomit and then started screaming. He vomited a few more times but seemed to be alright otherwise. Meanwhile the two younger workers just stood there in shock not knowing what to do. The older person wasn't even supposed to be there at that time but she said she just didn't feel right leaving because the only people left to care for the babies were all very young and tend to not focus on the babies. I personally feel it was the Lord prompting her to stay. Had she not been there that baby could well have died. After the crisis was over the younger ones were still in shock and were not able to take care of the other babies who by this time were all crying. I have been very concerned about the younger staff the director has hired and felt that something like this might happen. My biggest concern is when all of the older staff leave for the day and only the younger staff are left until the school closes knowing that they don't really do what is needed without being told to. I thank God that the older person decided to stay yesterday.

emoticon Judi...I do believe I've been to your page already. Glad to see you posting here and wish you a happy Christmas too down there in the south. I'm in the south but over the pond in England!!
Hope to see you posting here often.

Ann, I'd think the fayre was a big success but I haven't heard the grand total of money raised yet. Sarah said they do that on Monday. The large cake was sold on the cake stall and the muffins were with me on the teas & cakes stall. I would be bragging to say they were sold first...but it's true!! lol Seems everyone loves all things chocolate!
Are you noticing the stores getting busy over there...I'm sure people are doing food shopping already here!!
We have plenty of falling leaves here too...thankfully the gardener sweeps around and keeps the place tidy.

SADIE, I HAD TO SHOP FOR MORE SUGAR, FLOUR AND BUTTER YESTERDAY. I WAS GOING TO MAKE THE CARROT CAKE AND THEN FOUND I DIDN'T GET MORE WALNUTS!! OH WELL, ANOTHER DAY!

Sadie---How is the baking and fudge making doing? I should have done some today but ended up doing lots of other things instead.

Janet---Did the fair go well? You cake and muffins sound so good!

Busy day for me today. First I went to the library to pick up a book I had requested about a month ago. Then went to pick up some more Tylenol and fish oil supplements and drop off some mail at the post office. Next was the grocery shopping. The place I usually go to didn't have a good selection of produce so ended up going to another store for them. This afternoon I raked some more leaves off my lawn ( an endless process this time of the year). Only half of what I raked up fit into the trash container so the rest is piled up at the side of my house. Wish this were the last of the leaves to be raked up but the tree in my front yard is really big and still is about half full of leaves. After the leaves I did some laundry and then went online to pay some bills. This evening I finished the 26th hat for the homeless. Next weekend I will take them to a homeless shelter to donate them.

Janet---There are a few people at work who don't like chocolate so I will probably make some chocolate and some butterscotch or peanut butter.

I hope the Christmas Fair brings in lots of money. Carrot cake isn't difficult, just a bit time consuming. Wish I could attend that fair just to have some of the tea and goodies.

SADIE GLAD THE HOMEMADE GIFTS ARE WORKING OUT GOOD.

Ann...it's a good idea to the fudge as a gift to work colleagues...what flavour will you make?

Sarah has a Christmas Fayre at her day nursery on Saturday so tomorrow I shall be cake baking and may make some mince pies too. I'm going to be serving teas and slices of cake and biscuits and hope the day makes lots of money for this good cause. Joseph has requested a carrot cake...I think I've only made that once before but will have a go.

Sadie---Fudge...yum! I have been thinking about making some for everyone at work. Also thinking about making some cranberry bread. I have the cranberries. I bought them before Thanksgiving and froze them thinking I would make bread. Now I need to get to doing those things instead of just thinking about it...

WELL DONE SADIE FOR GETTING ALL YOUR HOME MADE GIFTS SORTED OUT.
I MAILED OFF SOME CARDS AND A PACKAGE THIS MORNING, GLAD THAT IS ALL DONE.

My grandsons have their tree and house decorated now so there was lots of excitement when I was there this afternoon!! Makes you remember being a child yourself.

Ann your Italian meal sounded lovely...the mushroom risotto would have been my choice for sure.

SADIE...YES THE TYRE STAYED INFLATED ALRIGHT BUT WE'VE CHANGED IT NOW SO ALL IS WELL...TYL.

Today we had our meeting this morning, some lunch and then I set to making some bread rolls and 3 apple turnovers for Joseph. He's enjoyed two of them already!! They smelled so good but...not for me!!! It's called "The art of staying strong!!" lol.
I wrote the cards and wrapped a present for my second cousin, so will get all those mailed off tomorrow, God willing.

My son and dil took me out to dinner tonight. We went to an Italian restaurant not too far from here. I ordered Chicken Marsala. It was so good but way too much food. Half of it ended up in a box to bring home and have for lunch tomorrow. My dil ordered pumpkin ravioli which she said was delicious and my son had a mushroom risotto. We all enjoyed our meal and went for a short walk afterward. After all that we ate we needed that walk!

I had a good day yesterday even though I did go to work. A nice assortment of cookies was brought in to celebrate. The molasses cookies were soft and chewy just the way I like them. I only ate one and a couple of small dark chocolate stars. I didn't do anything else special. Friday I have off and will be going out to dinner with my son and dil.

I agree Ann people don't believe that it's a pagan feast time...well the bible says they will stay ignorant.
Oh yes the younger age group can be much easier to handle...lol. I think Sarah lets them get away with too much but that's mostly because she's so tired when she gets home from work. I do worry about her and Adam, both in high power jobs and it makes for a lot of tension at home. Of course I don't say anything...I hated it when my mum poked her nose into the way I was raising my children so would never do that.

SADIE WE HAVE AUTO COVER TOO BUT THEY WOULD ONLY TAKE US SOMEWHERE TO GET A TYRE AND MAYBE NOT THE MOST ECONOMICAL PLACE. WE ARE JUST SO SHORT OF MONEY THAT WE CAN'T ALWAYS DO EVERYTHING WE KNOW WE SHOULD FOR THE CAR. WE'RE STILL WAITING FOR THE PLACE TO GET ONE IN FOR US, MAYBE TOMORROW? THANKFULLY THE TYRE IS STILL OK.
YES TRUE ABOUT THE SNOW IN ISRAEL BUT MANY PEOPLE THINK OF THAT COUNTRY AS ALWAYS HOT...SPAIN WAS VERY COLD TOO BUT PEOPLE DIDN'T THINK IT COULD EVER BE.

JANET, SORRY YOU HAD A FLAT TIRE, I BELONG TO THE AUTO CLUB [TRIPLE A] IT'S $72 A YEAR FOR ME AND JANET LYNN, IF WE HAVE TROUBLE WITH ANYTHING WE CALL THEM AND THEY COME HELP US, THEY WILL CHANGE THE TIRE IF WE NEED IT, BUT WE DON'T USE THEM THAT MUCH BECAUSE WE KEEP UP THE CAR SO IT'S IN EXCELLENT CONDITION, BUT AT LEAST WE ARE PREPARED, WHEN WE HAD JANET LYNN'S NISSAN SEDAN WE DID CALL THEM FOR HELP AS IT WAS AN OLDER CAR, BUT NOW WE HAVE OUR MINI STATION WAGON AND VERY HAPPY WITH IT, HOPE THE AIR HOLDS IN YOUR TIRE.
AS FOR WHEN JESUS WAS BORN I HAVE NEVER DISCUSSED IT AS IT NEVER HAS COME UP, BUT A GOOD ARGUMENT THE SHEPHERDS WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN WITH THE SHEEP IN THE SNOW END OF DISCUSSION.

Janet---I know how exhausting it can be with kids that age. For 7 months I was a director at an elementary age day care center. The older ones do tend to challenge and don't like it when you are firm expecting them to obey. I much prefer the little ones.

Sorry you had a flat tire this morning. Hope it holds air long enough for you to get it replaced.

I agree that many Christians don't believe that Jesus was born at another time. I have had many discussions (some heated) about this with those who say they are Christians. All they have to do is check the history of Christmas and why it is celebrated at this time of the year. But most people don't want to go to that effort.

Ann, I think the problem with my twin grandsons (8yrs old) is that they really want their mum to be there all the time and not me, or the other grandma or their dad collecting them from school. It seems to be that parents won't be stay at home mums these days so IMO the children suffer. They're quite naughty and really don't like it when I challenge them and expect them to behave in a reasonable way. I think that's what I find tiring...

SADIE, GLAD YOU AND ANN KNOW THE TRUTH...MANY CHRISTIANS DENY IT. I AGREE ANN, MANY PEOPLE DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT JESUS AT THIS TIME OR INDEED ANYTIME OF THE YEAR.

I started out with a flat tyre this morning...thankfully a neighbour put some air in it and tomorrow we shall get a new one. Praying it hasn't gone down again during the night!!

Janet---It can be exhausting being with kids when you aren't used to it but I know you love spending time with the twins as I am sure they love being with you.

As you said, Jesus was not born this time of the year but I still enjoy celebrating that He did come to earth and honoring Him. The world does far too many materialistic things and many don't even think of Jesus but without His coming we would have no hope at all.

It was back to work for me today. After a week away the babies were all off their schedules and not happy about being back in the nursery. That made things a bit chaotic this morning and to add to the chaos we had 3 new babies start today. Thankfully we had all of our staff. With all of the crying and fussiness it made the morning seem extra long. By 1 I was so glad I could go home!

I did a little Christmas decorating this afternoon. A wreath is on the front door and a small tree is in the living room. It has turned cool again so tonight I made a nice fire in my fireplace. I still have some logs from the limbs that blew down 2 years ago in that horrible wind storm. They are nicely dried out and make a great fire. It feels so toasty warm in my house tonight! Tomorrow I may put out some more decorations.

SADIE, THANKFULLY I HAVE NO PAIN FROM THE MINOR SURGERY...SHOULD ALL BE HEALED UP SOON.
I AGREE ABOUT CHRISTMAS, PERSONALLY WE DON'T CELEBRATE THE TIME AS JESUS WASN'T BORN AT THIS TIME OF YEAR. I'VE BEEN TO ISRAEL IN DECEMBER AND BELIEVE ME THERE WOULDN'T HAVE BEEN SHEPHERDS ON THE HILLS IN DEEP SNOW. THE LORD JESUS WAS THE LAMB, BORN IN SPRING TIME. SORRY IF I'VE SAID THIS OTHER YEARS TOO.

Had the twins today after school until their mum came home from work...one tired grandma! lol

Ann, I hope everything was cut out too. I've just taken the square band aid off and now it will heal up.
We have tidying up work to do in our small garden too but somehow when the weather turns colder and wetter I'm not keen to get out there. We grew a small chili plant (seed from Spain) so have brought it inside to try and keep it going so it produces some nice chillies next year. I'm still using the dried ones I grew in Spain so would be nice to have some more.
I'm slowly making a start on the dress now the alterations are done with!!

SADIE I FIND THE MATERIALISTIC VIEW OF CHRISTMAS FRIGHTENING; ESPECIALLY AMONGST THE CHILDREN!!
THERE IS NOTHING LIKE HOMEMADE, ESPECIALLY FUDGE...SO MUCH BETTER THAN SHOP BOUGHT THAT IS FULL OF ADDITIVES!

Janet---Hope the doctor got all of that growth! Your day viewing the nativity scenes sounds so nice. It's hard to believe December is already here. Like you, I won't be spending much on gifts. Instead I will give mostly home made gifts. Alterations...not my favorite thing either!

Sadie---You are ahead of me in the Christmas decorating. I wanted to put some decorations up today but didn't get to it. Maybe Monday.

We had a very rainy day yesterday and my yard was still very wet this morning so I had to wait a while for the sun to dry things a bit. I have an electric mower so don't take chances when things are wet. Wouldn't want to get a shock! I finally got the lawn done about mid-morning. My big tree is dropping so many leaves right now, so I had to clean the leaves up before mowing. I am glad it was a cool morning though. Working in the yard when it is too warm is not something I like at all. This afternoon it did warm up to the mid 70s and tomorrow will be around 80.

I intended to mail out my Christmas cards today but once I finished the yard work I really didn't want to go anywhere. So that will wait until Monday after work. There is still plenty of time for the cards to get there by Christmas, even the ones I am sending overseas.

Ann, your day sounded very nice, glad you enjoyed yourself.
They seem to have adopted your Black Friday here but have to say that in my small town it looked like business as usual...lol.

SADIE, YOU ARE GETTING ALL FESTIVE THERE!! WE DON'T SPEND MUCH ON PRESENTS EITHER...I DON'T THINK MANY PENSIONERS CAN THESE DAYS. SAVING MONEY FOR ESSENTIALS ARE IMPORTANT...!!

I saw a surgeon today about a 'warty thing' on the side of my jaw, along near my ear. I wanted it frozen off but he doesn't do that, they scrape it off, under anesthetic, and get the root out too he said. All seemed pretty simple so hope that is dealt with.
While in that town we looked in the church at the nativity cribs on show. Sarah's nursery school had one so we had to see that one. They were all very nice. Later on Father Christmas arrived to switch on the street decoration lights but we'd already gone home so didn't see that. I didn't know Sarah and the twins were there waiting for it either.
This morning my sister came to collect her jacket that I'd fitted a new zipper in...do I like alterations? noooo!!! but she's my sister! lol

Well you al have a blessed Lord's Day tomorrow...1st December too!!! Wow!!!

How did you spend your day? Did you join the millions of others shopping the Black Friday deals? Or did you stay home and relax?

Yesterday was a busy day. I went to my son's for dinner but I cooked the turkey so had to transport it. I also baked some mini pumpkin pies for desert. My son and dil had invited 3 of their friends for the meal who also brought some food. As usual, the meal was carb heavy but delicious. I am still recovering from a respiratory bug so felt very tired by the end of the evening.

Today I stayed home...in other words I had a lazy day. But...I did do a little housework and I did get those Christmas cards addressed and ready to mail out tomorrow. That alone feels like a major accomplishment! Other than that I didn't do much. It was a rainy day here so I didn't go out for a walk as I planned. Instead I did some crocheting (working on Christmas gifts), read for a while, and played on the computer. Tomorrow I plan to do some yard work if the weather improves. Then it's off to the post office to mail those cards!
