Sunday early evening/late afternoon

I did a great entry earlier but lost it.  Seems it's happening to everyone these days.  Ok what did I say ?   Well, I was taking a break from ironing, now it's turned into a very long break.  Oh well, at least I have something to wear to work tomorrow. 

I've talked to my son and he's feeling a little better today but still not 100%.  He states the swelling on the right side of his face has gone down since yesterday.  He also told me that my brother and sis in law brought him their pick up truck this after noon, so now he'll have wheels under him again.  The insurance adjuster is supposed to go out and check out his car either Monday or Tuesday, but it's hard to say how long the whole process will take.  And who knows when he'll be able to get another vehicle.  I'm still so thankful he wasn't hurt worse and whenever I think about it, it brings tears to my eyes.  God is good !!

I did do a little decorating today (I was a little intimidated by Robin..her house looks beautiful.)   Bob brought my 4 foot, permanently decorated fake (but green) Christmas tree in from my storage shed before he left for California. I keep it wrapped in plastic and in the shed all year except during the holidays.  All I need to do is set it on the table (actually 2 large cardboard boxes, on top of each other, covered in a white sheet) plug it in and straighten out a few branches and untangle some of the ornaments.  I also put the holiday wreath on the front door and brought out the silk poinsettias.  I'll do more but that's a good start since we are still in November.

The weather was very strange here today.  I woke up to about 36 degrees and rain.  I kept checking for snow but instead the temperature went up into the low 40's. Then about 2pm today the wind suddenly came up.  I mean it was really kicking up !!!  It was coming from the west and for awhile I was concerned about that big cedar tree in my front yard but at least with the wind out of the west, it would have gone down in the street and not over my house.

Well, I must get back to either my ironing or my Christmas cards.   At least I have themall addressed, the stamps purchased and some have notes written in them and are actually sealed ready to be mailed.  I'm having writers block when it comes to my Christmas letter that goes out to family and close friends living far from here, however.  Hopefully, that will pass and I can get that task completed by the end of next weekend. 

Hope you all had a good weekend and that this coming week will be good for you too.   Until next time, Linda

Thanks to my former co-worker Debra for sharing it.

P.S. I just heard on the local news that our neighbors to the north in Bellingham got 14 inches of snow in the last 24 hours.  And they are predicting another 6 inches during the night.   I bet there'll be no school up there tomorrow.  If you look on a map of Washington, Bellingham is very near the British Columbia/Washington border.    We on the other hand have had 15 inches of rain this last month.

I know what you mean about the wreck, something like that can really wake you up and realize what's really important.  Glad he is doing better.  We have snow and probably for sure will have ice in the morn.  My 18 year old grandson mentioned he wanted to see that movie so I was interested in what you thought.  Joni

I heard about the snow in Bellingham, my neice and her husband were up there for the weekend.  I think they left this morning for home.  I won't know for sure until I see her at work tomorrow.  Haven't thought about decorating yet, or the cards - I'm usually slow with that.  ::sigh::
