Good morning and Brrrrr! We are only 9ºF this morning and snow is going to happen. I am going to make sure I have a quilt and other warm stuff in the car before I set out tomorrow. Guess I'll take along some winter boots too and my Yak-Tracks.
Jennifer, 25 pounds of boots would probably keep me from walking, much less chasing a bad guy.
Linda, you have no idea how much I'm looking forward to this vacation. I am so glad we will be at the Farm although I'm looking forward to the family too. Yes, all of them!
Tammy, hoping the snow isn't too bad for your trip. I dunno - your jeans could be considered shabby chic these days. I have a friend who decorated her house in "shabby chic" - it didn't work for me!
Had a great evening with the Girls and Kids last night. The boys were just full of Disney excitement. The thrown-together chicken stew was so easy and everyone loved it. (I also used up a flock of boneless chicken thighs in the freezer.) I served it over biscuits since I was not sure how dumplings would do in the slow cooker. It's such a fun way to entertain - four competent women makes short work of clean-up and they take home the leftovers! The boys watched the Grey Cup and we "girls" (that includes Mckenna who is 14) talked and laughed a lot. Always feels good to laugh and feels even better to wake up to clean kitchen.
Today I'll get myself into fifth gear. I have a ton of laundry but think I'll just do the clothes I want to take to PA. The dogs go to the kennel late afternoon and after that I'll put as much as possible into the car so I can make an early no-panic departure in the morning. I am avoiding going into the Office today unless they have something I need to sign.
Seems like I've not had a holiday since Linda was here for Delta Fair. My daughter's September visit was screwed up by the dumb back and ribs!
OK - time to decide what the heck to wash so I can pack it. No matter how organized I am and how many trips I've taken, I always miss out on something. Once it was underwear!
Hmm - not sure where Jazz is. He's probably rolled up in the comforter on my bed. He does love his comfort.
Have a super Monday whatever you do.
