Good morning. Here we are again....I might just get used to this after all. Am up very early (5:10!) for the first xmas program at 1st school, which starts at 8:30. Letting DH sleep a few minutes more. (I love having a quiet house when I first get up).
Marlene, hope you doctor apt was good. Did you find a tree? Do all you ladies do real, or fake trees? We have done fake for years. Bought a nice prelit tree from QVC last year, now a few lights are being stupid. Glad you asked Phyl about those pretty avatars. I tried figuring it out last night, needless to say I couldn't so I put a pic of DH and 2 of our grand children. You get to stay in today, right? (jealous!!)
Phyl, up by 3? Oh boy! Hope you got good sleep last night. Thanks for the directions about avatars...will take some time later today to figure it out.
Boy the joke sure is on us!! Mother Nature is just mean...after giving us such a nice, mild fall, she is slaming us now. As of last night, the weather guys around here were saying we could possibly get 6-10" of snow Friday/Saturday. Yeah....good times! But they did say that late next week we should have moderate temps going into christmas.
We will do the first program today, then come home for awhile, then leave for the other one that is at 1. Will be glad to come crawling home after that one, lol!
Well my coffee cup is empty, need to fix that, then it will be time for a shower. Have a great day.
Time for me to take a break. I cleaned all morning but still have the BR to do. Maybe tomorrow. There were advantages of having the honey wagon come on a certain day.
The stove was delivered about 1:30. They had said between 12:30 & 2:30. So were prompt. DH could have installed it but it was so nice to have them set everything up, check our that it worked & dispose of the packing. Very nice young men(boys). I’m not suppose to use it for a couple hours - let it warm up. It has a warming drawer on it that I didn’t realize I was getting. Might be nice if I ever cook for large group but that’s not on my agenda for any time soon.
DH got the tree in the stand after they left & we have it on the porch. The official trimming can wait till tomorrow. Not sure where I have the decorations. The ones when used when we lived here are for sure in the attic & it will be cold up there. I know what we brought home from of the trailer is in the basement. Maybe that will be enough for this year. I may get carried away with ALL my Christmas decorations if I go in the attic.
Still haven’t had any luck with getting an avatar up. Found some nice Christmas pictures I would like to use but maybe I have to pay for them. I googled Free images but I know that’s not what you always get. They try to hook you with pay ones.
I had a strange phone call this morning. Someone identified as from Canada & I couldn’t understand him real well said they had received messages that my computer was sending “something” I wasn’t really listening by then. I said no, no, no & hung up. If I had thought in time, I would have said, “Russia must be messing around again!” & hung up.
I am feeling really good today. Lower back was a little sore for a short time after I vacuumed. Also slightly now but I helped DH carry a small table up from the basement. Probably not the smartest thing to do but when help is needed I’m on call:) Upper back felt good when I got up & that wasn’t the area the shot was for.
Our friends from TX called today - the ones that visited us last summer. Of course they are interested in our weather - how much snow & how cold. I promised them we’d see eagles if they would come now. Missing friends is the worse part of staying here. DH feels so darn good again - maybe that’s cause he’s not doing heavier work - like those boats.

Marlene, I have google I can use, or IE, but mostly google. In their search window, I just typed what Phyl said, christmas images. Alot comes up and free ones also. I would never pay for those. Click on the pic you want, then it will let you save it, to up load it here. Yay, on your stove! Isn't that something...that we have come to expect the worst! (customer service wise) I would love a warming tray, just thinking about christmas! About the phone call, we always get weird ones, but we don't answer any that we don't know. I love that we have the caller id come up on our TV, the one we really got a laugh over yesterday, was for the name it said PRIVATE, and for the phone # it said PRIVATE!!!! The latest "trick" phone solicitor is, the caller id says unknown, but when our machine goes on, the guy says: Gary? Gary? Hey, Gary...then hangs up!!! (DH name is Gary). For crying out loud...they make it sound like they personally know my DH!! So, since we don't pick up right away, they hang up. I don't know, I guess I should check, maybe our no call list thingy is expired.
Oh my goodness, I am stuffed! I always make a turkey casserole from Thanksgiving leftovers (turkey, potatoes, dressing and gravy...lol, I know, high in points). I pulled out the container I had frozen, to have today, since I knew I would not want to cook after all the running for the xmas programs. I had 1 cup of it, with a dinner roll, and as I said, I am stuffed (get it...turkey/dressing..? Lol!)
