Good to see you back GG. Sounds like you had a good time.

Not too many people doing anything today... smart. It's brutal out there. Like you said, Taxy, everyone is out today. The occassional white outs didn't help matters when I finally got out of the grocery store.

It's cold! I'm gearing up to make the wreath for the front door. Usually, I do it outside. Today I'll gather up the evergreen trimmings, put 'em on a sheet, and construct the wreath in the sun room.

Thanks for the reminder. I should go out and collect pine cones. We have trees that make little (~5 cm/2") cones. I'll see if I can find some that haven't been chewed up by the lawnmowers.

I have a wreath in the storage room...got it last year, it was made by the residents at the facility. Lovely purple decos and it's perfect on the door.

Cat, what came of your interest in learning to fly a plane? I'm curious to know why that interested you and whether you have thought more about joining the military.

Sally, Bella and I have been in the studio playin' around. Turns out we'll have more Christmas packages to ship than anticipated (folks not being able to be here), so I found boxes for the gifts and packaged them up. Will hit the USPS on the Internet later, pay the shipping and print my labels so they can go out on Monday.

Then, the girls "helped" as I cut out doll clothes for our granddaughters for their American Girl dolls as part of their Christmas.

Glenn's gone to his son's to pick up our granddog, Baxter, because Harley is becoming a pain in the patootee without her best bud. She and Baxter have played since both of them were wee pups and think they should spend every waking hour together. We keep trying to tell Harley that Baxter doesn't live here.

Usually he's here for most of a week then they start getting out of sorts with each other and it's time for Baxter to go back to his house for a while.

I've been on my feet a bit too long today and used my hands more than I should have, so I'm going to put my feet up, kick back and listen to my audio book for a while before Glenn gets home.

Looking out my sliding glass door (right next to my computer desk) watching the snow accumulate on my deck.

Is your SO going with you and it's the only time she can go?
Yes and yes. She wants to go along to make sure I don't screw up. She also makes me stop at two or three places wouldn't go to.

The crowds were not so bad. It was busy but not impossible.
