Snow was in the forecast for Christmas day so my daughter and son in law invited us to stay overnight Christmas eve. We are an hour from them on mostly back roads so we were happy to stay.
We got to hear the night before christmas read before bed. We hadn't heard that since my daughter was living home. And the best part is we got to see sweet B on Christmas morning!
As you can see behind husband the snow is coming down pretty hard( we got 9 inches on top of what we had). He is modeling his new wooden sunglasses. The frames are all beautiful stained woods.
I took a couple of extra days off from work to relax and enjoy
I am so glad I did.
We have been below zero most nights for about 4-5 days and the days only gets to low single numbers..the wind is brutal so we haven't gotten out a lot. We had snow squalls come through yesterday. David has kept the wood stove humming in the basement to help the furnace. We tried to get out to dinner with friends they made it but had to leave in a hurry for furnace and frozen pipe issues. I am sure many are dealing with the same thing. Our highest mountain broke records with the cold and hurricane force winds. I think they were -34 with the wind chill of -89 not fit for man nor beast
This is much colder than we are use to in December so maybe a short winter????PLEASE
We are trying to avoid sickness it hits David so hard. I have pretty much lost my voice but I am not sick, no sore throat, etc. I think the dryness of the cold air has done me in. I could use a vat of lotion to jump in! I swear husband will wake up one morning to find a pile of dust where I use to be! My skin is so dry. Hell getting old.!
Happy New Year to my sweet blog friends
Do you made resolutions? Or just say a prayer of thanks for getting through another year? It was a hard one for us. We lost a very long time friend. I miss her so much. And husband had more health issues but hopefully he is going to have a very healthy year!
Happy New Year!!
