A wonderful "Christmas" evening

Written by
After work on Wednesday, I went over to my mom's for my "big" family get-together for Christmas. In attendance were my brother who lives locally, my sister and two older nieces who also live locally. Also there was my brother and sister-in-law from California with my younger niece and nephew. We had a delicious dinner prepared by my mom and then desserts that included Angel Food cake OR Chocolate Chip cookies baked by my sister's…

This is possibly the weirdest week of the year

Written by
We are into that week between Christmas and New Year's. This is NOT what the roads look like with people going to work this week. Coming into work this morning, I could count the number of cars on the road! This is just a strange time of year. Kids are out of school. Some people have to work. Some don't (LUCKY!!!) HAHA. If you have gifts to exchange...good luck in THAT traffic.

It's all uphill from here!!!

Written by
With today being the Winter Solstice, that means it is the shortest day of the year!!! Rejoice, because for the next six months we will see more daylight every day. I love the longer days when it stays light until 9:00 and is nice and warm in the summer. As you travel around town the next several days, you may just see me jumping for joy like the two people in the if only…

He's not gonna last much longer!

Written by
On my way into work today, I saw a great looking snowman. A classic! The tree branches for arms, a scarf, a hat, eyes and a nose. He looked awesome! He was a little on the smaller side though. Not sure if he was made that way or if today's sunshine sped up the aging process a bit. Either way, temperatures are supposed to be sticking around the 40s through the weekend and right now,…

A great thing to see

Written by
I don't know about you...but I think the past couple of days have been awesome! Of course we don't see much sunshine around here this time of year, which leads to some depression in some people..myself sometimes included. That, and with how early it gets dark, it gets bad. That's why I have been so happy this week with how much sunshine we've been seeing. Nevermind if it's chilly...the sun still helps your mood. It…
