I love this bench!

Life goes on and so do the blizzards! January has given us our share of snow and winter! Lots of school closings so that means days will be made up the end of May. I am hoping that Punxatawney Phil will NOT see his shadow on Tuesday. We still haven't gotten together for our "Christmas" due to all the icky weather! My daughter-in-law did make it back safely.

My brain is tired so this is all you're going to get tonight. Maybe tomorrow my mind will be more receptive to blogging!

Here it is 2010! I am going to try to keep this blog sort of up to date. I'm not going to promise anything but to just to really try! We had a snowy Christmas and our kids didn't make it home so we had a quiet Christmas in the midst of a blizzard! But no worries - we were safe and warm! We are planning on MKL weekend to celebrate Christmas with the kids. Hopefully they can both get here, no more blizzards! This is short because of the late hour so will do my best to keep this up!

It's Getting Closer to Christmas!

We have had a terrific summer! Our son's in-laws made their first trip to the USA. They are from England and had some reservations about visiting but before the trip had ended, they were talking about coming back next summer! We made a trek to the Black Hills and did ALL the tourist things including WALL DRUG! There was even time for a trip to Wyoming and Devils Tower! We did some house renovations in preparation for their visit so I hope if they come again next summer we can renovate the bathroom! It really needs a big face-lift!

School has started and I'm working 4 days a week. I have Fridays off and I really look forward to sleeping in! It also gives me an extra day to do planning.

Global warming - our summer has been VERY cool and this winter is predicted to be VERY cold, so I don't know that I can believe in global warming. My husband was hoping for a very hot and humid summer for the corn to ripen and he's still waiting!

Tomorrow is the 8th anniversary of 9-11. Keep all the families that lost loved ones in your prayers. Fly your flag and be proud of our wonderful United States of America. The Star Spangled Banner still flies high and mighty over the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave!

Ready For Christmas

Thanksgiving is over and our son and daughter-in-law are back in Iowa. We're going to North Dakota for Christmas with our daughter so I'm not putting up all the Christmas decor that I usually do. My mother-in-law made me a ceramic Christmas tree that lights up so I will put that out and a few other favorite decorations.
We had snow today but not a lot, just enough to make things messy. Hopefully it won't get cold enough to freeze tonight. I have to make my trek out to the country tomorrow morning for my Mon-Wed family and I like nice dry roads!
Let's remember that Christ is a big part of Christmas and Jesus is the reason for every Christmas season!!!

Let's All Keep Praying

Considering the outcome of our presidential election, we still need to keep praying! Pray that our new president will allow our God in Heaven to guide and direct him.

Today is Veteran's Day and we need to remember all our military heroes that gave their lives for our safety and freedom. Also keep praying for all our active military who are also keeping us safe and free.

Precious Lord, take my hand...
