Did you get any of that ice and snow? We got a dusting and nothing more. Tomorrow it's supposed to get to 50 and rain. So, there won't be any snow by tomorrow night. No worries about a white Christmas, though. We are expecting more snow Monday. I hope everyone who lost power in the NE gets turned on again soon!
Simple, but pretty I think. And see how sweet and comfortable my chair by the fire looks! Just begs you to come in, have a cuppa and relax awhile, don't you think? Of course you would have to chase the dog out of the chair first, though she's perfectly willing to share if you are!
Here is our "starter collection" of nutcrackers. I plan to hit some after Christmas sales and get a few more for next year. I had one, a chimney sweep with a top hat and chimney brush, for years and years. One of the babies broke it several years ago by lugging it around all the time....I think a replacement is long overdue! Though that particular one came from the Black Forest and I don't think I'll be running over there anytime soon.
my husband's Christmas vacation so that we can finish the
inside windows...THEN LOOK OUT! I have curtains and
furniture and knick knacks. I can hardly wait to be allowed
to play with it! LOL
I am reading a biography of Elinore and Franklin Roosevelt and there time in the white house. Sorry all you FDR fans, but the TR side of the family was really so much nicer and so much more down to earth. I don't think I would have liked FDR as a person very much and Elinore, well, she had issues, bless her heart and I feel sorry for her. I don't think she was very happy privately, though well loved and well thought of publicly.
Anyway, it's off to Mass for us this evening so all the MALES can sleep in tomorrow. Gillian and I still have CCD, but no matter! It's a lot less rushed getting one kid up, ready and out the door then it is trying to get 5 of 'em!
Hope you're having a great weekend and remember: only 12 more days til Christmas!!! Those elves better kick it into gear if they aren't about ready!!!
