Good morning. Sounds like everyone is having pretty cold weather. We have a storm blowing in and we did get some snow last night, but it isn't too bad yet. Maybe -10, but that isn't bad for this time of year.
DH might get the skating rink in after all.
Ruth - Get that heat on, quick. You must be freezing with the temps getting so low. Hopefully the wood stove kept things from getting too cold, though. I don't envy you having to get firewood, though. Doesn't sound like much fun. Did you get the results back from Hersh? Hope she is doing better.
ellis - You are having terrible weather. We had -44 temps for a couple of weeks last winther and they were horrid. Is there any change in the temp forecasted?
Mamacita - A sock exchange sounds like a great idea. I will need to keep that in mind for the office. We are always looking for something different to do.
anchor - Congrats on getting through yesterday. You did a great job in staying OP through a stressful time. WTG. You can do through Christmas, too.
Me - It has been a hectic weekend. DH and I finished the hardwood flooring on Friday night...well just about finished. DH put the last row in on Saturday while I went grocery shopping. Then he spent the entire day washing walls, putting tools away and generally cleaning and loading the room. BUT, he lost the screws to hold the bed frame together.
It was another night sleeping on the floor. He did find all the screws yesterday, so we were able to move back into the bedroom last night.
I spent the entire day Saturday doing my Christmas baking. I was really, really good, to. Just sampled a few edge pieces on the squares. DS was wondering why the edge pieces on the square pans were missing. Sooooo, I had to explain to him that you can't serve edge pieced. His reply...Not very cost efficient, is it?
I think he is working just waaaayyy tooooo much.
I was sitting in the family room knitting on Saturday night (have some scarves that I want to make before Wed.), and DS came downstairs with a friend (but didn't see me sitting there). As he was inspecting the baking, I overheard the conversation about, these are my favourites. Go ahead and have one, mom will never miss it. So, as they were stuffing their faces, I asked them if they were getting into the baking...
Yesterday was to church - DH and I had to do the advent reading yesterday, so couldn't skip out. Spent all afternoon still cleaning up the mess in the house and then had to go to a Christmas concert last night. Would have skipped out on that, too, but we were singing at it.
We thought we would leave early and get home again, but we ended up sitting on the stage for the entire thing.
Consequently, we didn't get home until after 11:00 and we are both bagged this morning.
I thought I might skip out of work this afternoon for a while, but we will see, I guess. I have a few things left to buy, but thought I would leave until I am finished work on Wed. I am so thankful that we get the extra days before Christmas. I always seems to be running behind schedule.
I also wasn't very careful with eating on the weekend...ate right most of the time, but did sample some sweets. Yes, I did control myself and was surprised that the scale was down 2 pounds this morning. WOOHOO!
Well, gotta go. Time to get some work done here.
