The Weekend Cometh!

Not that I get more than one day of it, lol!

We survived the ice storm, and the heaviest snow missed us by a few miles, starting about 5 miles south of us and getting heavier the further you went. Where my wife works, they had 4" so some of them went out and made a snowman and the rest took residents to the windows to watch. About 40 miles southeast of us they got 18"!

Though I work tomorrow, all 3 grandkids are spending the night tonight. The tree has been up since Tuesday and Frankie hasn't tried to climb it yet, so when I get up tomorrow we're going to decorate it. Hopefully our curious kitty still leaves it alone! (Dottie's plants that have moved to the basement for the winter aren't faring so well; we're going to have to wrap the plant stands in hardware cloth I think.)

I'm trying very hard not to be depressed by man's treatment of fellow man...Litvinenko, Lebanon, Iraq...if I was smart I would turn off the TV and the radio but somehow I can't!

hmmmm*alan* i suppose i am going to "have words" with you about laying a guilt trip on yourself,,, naughty naughty...we all do the best we can in this world, so try not to be so hard on yourself.

yup, yup yup...sometimes i just have to turn off the radio and t.v. and put on some music, like Felise Navidad, my all time favourite, i suggest you do that RIGHT NOW! and dance, and sing, ...sometimes all we can do is look after our own little 1/2 acre, and re-charge our batteries, so to speak...

...and build Snowmen! and spreak joy where we can...no point living in angst about what we cannot control, and we cannot control Lebanon and Iraq...so...

keep Frankie away from the tinsel, that's all i have to say right now...
