Nice week ahead!

Ok, so I am always talking about the weather, only shows what an old lady I am. Young people do not care about weather, lol. So we are going to have a week in the 60s, yea!!!!

My daughter Phyllis is in Denver so that her daughter will have company in the event her baby arrives! Better to be there than to be sorry, lol.

Still recovering from all the goodies at Christmas and received another box of candy this morning, SEEs Candy from California, a yum!

Every day since the 24th has seemed like Sunday and this next week will be the same with all the closures, etc. Gosh, I look forward to January 2nd.

Hope everyone is enjoying their holiday season. Talk with you later.

January is near!

We had a lovely Christmas, just us and son Stewart. Had lots of good food and enjoyed visiting. Many thanks to all our family for the many gifts and goodies, we appreciated them all.

We had a very nice weather day today, 62F and sunny with very little wind. Floyd and Stewart enjoyed a couple of beers on our front porch as it was warm and comfortable out there.

We sincerely hope that everyone had such a nice day, and can you believe that January is just next week?? WOW!

That time of year!

Toy trains have always fascinated me. I wish I had one large room for electric train sets. I remember when I was a child in St. Louis and the old Famous-Barr store had a large window display of electric trains in a wonderful set with tunnels and bridges and mountains. It seems as if I could have looked at them all day.

I really haven't done my shopping this year. I will probably wait till Christmas eve. I just don't enjoy shopping, not since my children were young.

Normally, this time of year I am up to my elbows in cookies. This year I just can't get into it so Floyd passed out some little house plants to our neighbors with a card, pitiful. Some of my friends are a little under the weather and told Floyd not to expect Tamales this year. I understand completely. I know where to buy some good ones, lol.

The cookie baking will also be delayed, probably in a day or so when I can muster the NRG, lol. I love making cookies, but this year it hasn't seemed like fun. I think I am worried about my little granddaughter who is very pregnant. She lives in Denver with her guy, but no family around. I know her mom and dad will get there when the time comes, but I think she is anxious.

Two great grandbabies this year. Two boys, Austin and Owen. Life just keeps going on.:)

Had a post all ready and then - poof!! I'm not sure what happened. I received an email from one of my classmates in Missouri and it was cold and snowy there with a temp of 13F, eek!

Watching the weather news on TV and it seems that everywhere from the Sierras to Albuquerque have snow and then the midwest too. We have no snow, 63F here, should reach 65F. Because of our elevation, 4335', it does get very cold at night. Just watching the videos of cars skidding off the roads on the ice, it just looks so scary. I can remember those days!

Floyd has been outside most of the day, listening to his radio and visiting with neighbors. He just loves being outdoors.

Not much new. I have leftovers for dinner tonight, so no cooking for me, lol. Need to get to the library tomorrow and return some books. Also, need to get to Walmart and do a little shopping.

Take care all. talk with you later.

Winter nights and cool days! Oh well, it is that time of year. I like the Christmas decorations, they brighten my mood. I still haven't had to wear more than a sweater over my clothes. December is our coldest month. Lots of snow on our local mountains and also in the ski area to the north.

Floyd's Birthday

Tomorrow is my sweet hubby's birthday. He will be 80 years old. He looks great and is in good shape. We went to the market today and he picked out a cake that he liked. It is a pretty white torte cake with fresh strawberries and pineapple on top. It really looks yummy.

Cold weather has moved in. I think it only reached 57F today before a really strong wind brought a little rain and more cold weather. The northern part of NM has snow and will have more tomorrow. Of course, the skiers and snowboarders love it. Tomorrow should only reach 50F which is about as cold as it ever gets around here for a high. Lows in the 20s, brrrr.

I've been doing Christmas Cards. Still have a few to go, need addresses!

Hope everyone out there is staying warm. I try to stay inside and warm for most of the time. I don't like being cold.

Walmart sale!

I don't believe it, Walmart has our tv on sale for $498. Also, a 50"plazma for $798. They're practically giving them away. I want my money back so I can buy two of them, lol. Well, nobody else can compete with that. Our tv is a 42" Sanyo LCD and we love it, so I shouldn't complain. Never buy tvs any place else. Of course, I am a champion of Walmart, no matter who says what. If GM had run their business like Walmart, they wouldn't be in the mess they are today.

Sunny, cool day here. Our Christmas Light parade is tomorrow evening, and starts at the park down the street, so no excuse not to go. They have the usual bands, etc. and 28 floats, all lit up!

Guess I will have a spiral ham for Christmas, now for the sides, gotta work on that one. Hope all is well out there.

Beautiful Day!

It was 73F today, with lots of sunshine. I understand the next week will be upper 60s with sunshine - a little coolish, but not bad. I went to the library today and got some mysteries, Mrs. Murphys mysteries (Mrs. Murphy is a cat). She talks with other cats and a dog. Well, why not and there are humans in these books also by Rita Mae Brown.

Also, I went to the MVD to get my driver's licensed renewed. I had to wait 2 hours.

What else?? Not much, guess we will go shopping tomorrow. Talk with you all later.
