How's this for ironic?

I sent this gift package to my brother and it arrived yesterday but he didn't even open the box yet. He can't sample any of it until tomorrow night at the earliest because he's having a colonoscopy tomorrow.

Also baking some breads today. I have a blueberry/orange and a cinnamon streusel to make. Hopefully, I can deliver to my three locations by the end of the week.

Trying to get motivated to do my cards. I'm sending out photo cards to most people. Those that I know appreciate handmade cards will get them, but most will go with just a photo card.
I haven't made a single Christmas card yet. Worse yet: I still have October and November birthday cards to make, and my brother's birthday is Friday. If I make it tonight and mail it tomorrow, he might actually receive it on his birthday. LOL

It's now -3. It's dropped 3 degrees in 2 hours!

Heading down to 12-15 below zero tonight...

Evening. Our high temps for tomorrow are supposed to be in the 20s. Yikes!

I got two of the three breads baked today. Tomorrow I'll do my cinnamon coffee cake. I think I'm going to do it a little differently - just make the usual coffee cake in a bundt pan and slice that. I'll deliver late tomorrow or Friday.

Afternoon. It's cold here today, too. In the 20s. You know I'm rarely cold, but I've been cold, fuzzy, tired and sluggish all day.

Cold here too but not that cold. Wind is making it worse and I have to go to WalMart after I drop Kam off.


Poppa and Kason need food....LOL

Yummo! It will taste good in any shape.

I was going to bake some cookies last night, but need shortening.

Another busy day! I had to take my car back to the shop for one more thing this afternoon (they had to order the part). I stopped at the hardware store for a couple of things and then went downtown to place an anniversary announcement in the paper for my folks. 55 years on January 3! That just blows my mind. I decided to use both photos from September but no names. LOL. Enough people will still recognize them, I'm sure. Mom can pretend to be embarrassed (about the photo where Dad is trying to look down her top) but it's such a cute picture and I know it will make a lot of people smile. Even people who don't know them.

On the way home I stopped at the Czech Museum to do a little shopping. They were having a 20% off sale and I wanted to get a couple new ornaments. They have beautiful Czech glass ornaments.

Remember our neighbor Irma who passed away a few years ago? I ran into her daughter Shannon at the museum. We had a nice chat and agreed to get together after the holidays. I'm looking forward to that.

Now I'm home and will have a bite to eat before meeting Mary at the coffee shop at 7:00. We didn't discuss if we were going to eat dinner there or not, but I've decided to eat at home since I made a big 9x13 pan of pasta last night and have plenty of leftovers. I can get dessert at the coffee shop.

A big pan of pasta sounds delicious to me!

I couldn't get on here at all yesterday. I didn't get warnings, but I couldn't get to the forums. Another friend emailed me that she was having a similar problem. Bill had trouble getting to two other sites for Christmas gifts last night (Barnes & Nobel and Target) - so something must have been up.

He took today off as he technically worked a full day on Saturday. We went to the bank, dropped two checks at Andy's and church, went to breakfast, Target, Pier I (I haven't been there in ages) and Christmas Tree shops. Now he is outside putting up the lights and other outdoor decorations. It is COLD but we are supposed to get another snow and possible ice storm Saturday into Sunday. We'll get the tree later today (the family wants a cut one) and decorate tomorrow when it is snowing outside.

Off to do some more things. I only started Christmas cards - I'm now hoping to get them out sometime before Christmas.

As Miss I says: toodles!

I couldn't access the site last night either. I wondered if they were doing a clean sweep of some kind because of the badware warnings of the past couple of days?

Mary and I had a fun time last night. We each got a dessert and drink at the coffee shop, and just gabbed for an hour or more. Then I suggested that we go to an open house at an art gallery not too far away. She hadn't heard about it so we took off. That was fun. I saw a set of 4 fused glass dessert
or hors d'oeuvre plates that I really liked. They were in one of my favorite color combinations: white, black and red. It's not really practical for me to buy them for myself, since I rarely entertain anymore and we have little room for anything more in the kitchen. But they would make a nice wedding gift for Marylee. I decided to think about that idea for a while.

Today is my brother's birthday (Friday the 13th). I told him he should buy a lottery ticket!

My mom has called me twice today. Today is the day they were going to Prescott, Arizona on the bus trip. Mom told me they were joking about it at the softball party on Wednesday and saying, "This will be our first senior citizen bus trip." And I guess everyone laughed.

As if they're all 20 years old or something. LOL

It's pretty bad when 70 year olds are making fun of "senior citizens."

So she called me before they boarded the bus this afternoon. Then she called me once they reached their destination. She says, "Guess who won the first raffle drawing on the bus?" I guessed her. Nope, Mr. Wig! He won a bottle of champagne. Neither of them drink wine or champagne. But maybe they could take it to their Christmas party--their friends Jim and Kathy want to have it at their new park model. I told mom they could use it to "christen" their new home.

I need to buy a lottery ticket and win, so I can spend the winter in Arizona.

We don't get the ESPN channel that the Iowa-Iowa State basketball game is on tonight. Guess I won't be able to watch the game for Mr. Wig.

I could listen to it on the radio, but I don't really like to do that. Especially when I can be watching White Christmas on TV.

A very productive day. I have all my cards written. I'm just waiting for the postage stamps to arrive. I hope they come tomorrow. I'll get everything mailed by Monday.

Our town Christmas parade is cancelled for tomorrow. It is supposed to start snowing early in the day and build as the day goes on. We 'could' get 5-8 inches. It depends on how it tracks. What I don't like hearing is that we could get the last of the storm as ice. NOT fun. I'm glad we are in for tomorrow.

We'll sleep in (yay), decorate the tree, make pot roast or stew for dinner and just spend time together. I might try to finish my breads so I can deliver early in the week. Maybe make a batch of cookies.

<------ ONE!

Christmas card.

Finished, that is. (Yes, I'm getting kind of a late start.)

But now that I have my "prototype" done, I can assembly-line the rest and hopefully get them in the mail before too much more time passes. I may have to make a run to Michaels or the scrapbook store for some base cardstock, otherwise I'm pretty set for supplies.

Afternoon! It was a bit quiet at church today due to the roads. Main roads were clear, but side roads were not the best. Several roads closed due to downed trees. Our tree and the neighbor's tree lost some branches. They left for MI yesterday so we'll clean up what dropped. Bill shoveled their sidewalk, too. The sun is shining and it is warmer today so everything is melting. We might get more snow on Tuesday. Oh joy! So many people have said they are already tired of winter. And it isn't even officially winter yet!

Bill and I are heading to a Christmas party in a bit. Just with friends - should be fun.

We had a good time. Although I felt a little out of place as most of their friends are involved with fitness in some way. These girls both got very thin and athletic. You all know that is not me!

Tomorrow the piano is being tuned first thing, Julie has a final mid-morning. I HOPE to get my cards mailed and a few things to the Post Office. I'm thinking I might wait until Tuesday for that tho - OR go after hours when I can use the self-postage machine. It might not be as crowded.

Isn't tomorrow the post office's busiest day? I would be avoiding that place like the plague. LOL

I'm hoping that all of my Christmas cards will take one Forever stamp and thus can be mailed from the house. If I have an entire stack of cards to mail and don't feel like going out, I put them in a plastic bag and hang them on the mailbox to be picked up.

IF I go to the post office today it will only be to drop the letters in the blue boxes outside! But I do have a package to mail that will need to be weighed. I have more than one, but only one REALLY needs to go soon.

Hi! Oh, how good these keys feel under my finger! I've been super lazy today. A bad back night. I knew the guy from Time Warner was coming, so didn't take power drugs. It took him 1 1/2 hours to get all the stuff set up. Mainly that was due to their new way of handling things. He was on hold with them for nearly 25 minutes. He said they used to be able to chat online to get things set up but someone decided it needed to be done over the phone, so it takes them a LONG time to get things set up because they have to wait forever on the phone. Okay, in light of other things, an hour & a half isn't "forever" but in a day of computers, it seems odd that they do it that way. Anyway, then I had to wait for Phil to rig everything up for me. We did get to watch last week's X-Factor on tv. At least the singing episode. The results show wasn't on demand yet. Though, I've already seen who went home. Now we get to catch up on Once Upon a Time and Hallmark Christmas movies! LOL!

I've unpacked some, but not a ton. I'm not sure where I want things to go, which makes it hard. I need to bring some shelves in from the garage, but I need to unpack the boxes onto something to make room for the shelves. Step by step. At least this part CAN take as long as I need. YEA!!!!


Oh, post office: I have to go tomorrow. I went in last week & found out that I have to have a copy of something that shows I own or rent this house to get keys to my mailbox. Too bad we don't just have a normal street mailbox or it wouldn't be this hard. They said once I do that, then I have to put my mail on hold until the keys are ready for me, which is about 10 days. That's nuts! Anyway, if you've sent anything to my new address, which I don't think any of you even have yet------it might not make it to me. I'll message y'all my PO box for now, I guess.


Feeling drained & tired! Good night!

HEY at almost time to say GOOD NIGHT.

Poppa wanted to go the the Waffle House this morning and other than that I did not hit a lick until I went to pick up the kids. Did NOt even make up my bed and I NEVER don't make up my bed.


Then....


I took them to get something to eat
Picked up Karlie(Chad was at a band concert)
Off to WalMart to buy items for Christmas Baskets
Karlie and I needed FOOD!
Headed to Mexican place
Kam and Kason ate chips,salsa and chesse dip
Back to Anissa's to put baskets together
Dropped K&K back off at home
Finally made it in the door around 9:00.

I am cooking for whoever makes it here on Saturday.

I am actually having everyone bring FOOD!


I am buying a smoked ham from Anissa's Church and will make a small regular ham.


I will do pinto beans,green beans and probably that taco bean dip.


May or may not do anything else. I say this and I am already laughing.
