why no gas, no heating, etc.....? winter storm? forgot to pay your bills?

Sending warm wishes your way.

I made two Christmas fruit loaves this morning, don't know if they'll turn out; trying a new recipe.

Now I'm off to do my once-a-week volunteer visiting at a nursing home, I was assigned to two elderly women (82 yr old Italian ,84 yr old German) six months ago. They don't understand each other 's accents, so I divide my time between them, to give each one some much-needed individual attention.

Not happy places, nursing homes.... but volunteers try to add some cheer.

Oh, no, Aunt Bea, that will be swimming around my head for the next week! We had a communications company do an ad campaign with a hippo. So the December ad was based on that song! I love it, but it won't go away!

Was wrapping some Christmas gifts when the old back started to give out. So I thought I would take a break and see what was going on at DC. :) Lucked out this morning ,I was looking all over town for the Wii Just Dancing3, everyone was out of it. When I went into Target and they had just 2 left. I heard the lady ahead of me asking for the same thing, thank goodness she only wanted one. And I couldn't believe it , they were also on sale for $10.00 off the regular price!!!

Furnace guy was in, everything SHOULD be ticketyboo now. I'm feeling lazy after this hectic work week so I'm trying to decide if I have enough energy to go out Christmas shopping. If you see me posting more the answer was NO!

I'm waiting for UPS to arrive.
Everything I ordered from Amazon last Thurs or Fri arrived USPS yesterday, except the two items they shipped UPS. One is a present, but I need the other one to re-hook my TVs up differently. And tracking says they should be delivered today, but they are usually here by now... so I'm waiting.

And waiting...I hate UPS. I have more horror stories about them than I care to relate.

Canada Post has pulled up its socks lately and I've seen a really amazing amount of service lately. I suspect they hired more folks for the Christmas rush. Good thing!
