Oh, the weather outside is... sunny? It's 34 deg. F outside and the wind is forecast to begin blowing soon.. and snow is forecast for tomorrow! Amazing. But for now the sun is illuminating our dining room and it's oh so pleasant inside with the fire burning away in the pellet stove. I just noticed that there are 3 bottles of sparkling cider still on the floor from our Thanksgiving dinner.. lol! We better put them outside to chill. :-) Kristi bought these chair covers last year, aren't they cute?
This is my view from my easy chair in the den.. it sure brightens my mood when I see this sunny room.
I have been hand addressing my Christmas card envelopes.. I am using the same card as I only used half of them last year. I have my printer print them up as he uses glossy paper and they turn out so pretty.. I do the design using one of my own photos.
Kristi's grandmother sent this to her, it's the cutest thing.. it's an emergency preparedness kit - a dozen candles that fit in a canning jar, they screwed on a pvc pipe end cap on the lid which goes down into the jar for storage and when you need light if the power goes out or some more dire emergency, you are set for light for quite a while. Isn't this a neat idea?
I noticed Simba, our feral cat friend, sunning himself on our back door welcome mat..
I put my wooden Nativity carousel on the table.. we lit it for dinner the other night and the boys were fascinated seeing the top twirl around driven by the heat of the candles.
My swimming companions, Gracie and Denise, could not join me today to go to the hot springs to swim.. so.. I twisted Dayle's arm and after much complaining and whining he has agreed to accompany me for lunch at Big T's and then to swim. I hope the weather holds out today! And I also hope the snow does come tomorrow although it's supposed to change over to freezing rain and then to rain.. but a short snow is still fun.. isn't it? What are you up to today?
((hugs)), Teresa :-)
