I do hope that everyone had a great Thursday and ready to start a new day. It is 33 degrees here with a windchill of 28 degrees. Yesterday was a very chilly day and when I took the girls to school around 7:30a.m. I thought the Sun was going to shine. It did for a little bit and then it clouded up again and stayed cloudy all day. We are suppose to see the Sun today, but we will see. I know clouds are to be moving in late tonight with a rain/snow mix for tomorrow. I still think we will see mostly rain here in our area with a snowflake mixed in here and there. But you know, weather is constantly changing.
First off this morning, I would like to "THANK" Mary of Mary's Writing Nook for presenting me with a "Beautiful Blogger Award". "THANK YOU SO MUCH MARY". Mary is such a wonderful and caring person. If you have never been to visit Mary, please be sure to go and visit her. She is a great writer and I enjoy reading her writings. Mary lives in Canada and I have only known Mary for a short while, but she has become a great friend to me. "THANK YOU" again Mary for such a Beautiful Award.
Well, today is Show & Tell Friday. I did one a while back. Kelli at There Is No Place Like Home is hosting this week. The time that I did do a Show & Tell Friday I showed a picture. I know it wasn't your normal Show & Tell Friday. Well, this week I am going to do the same, because I feel it is something special to me. This is a picture from last Sunday when we went
Osceola, AR to my Great-Aunt's 98th Birthday Party. It is our girls Great, Great-Aunt. I love the picture because to me, it is something that I will cherish as long as I'm alive. It is also something our girls can look back on when they are older. The man in the back there, is of my Dad. I know, I know, your probably saying that I'm suppose to be showing something other than a picture, but to me this is just no picture. I am a very family-oriented person and I believe that family is very important to not only me, but for everyone else. When I can, I am going to have a copy of this picture made and give it to each of our girls and that way they will have it and can show their kids someday. Anyway, I do hope you enjoyed my Show & Tell Friday. I am proud to say that I still have a Great-Aunt that is still living at the young age of 98 and still has a pretty good mind. I know this is a little late and she doesn't have a computer, but "HAPPY 98th BIRTHDAY AUNT OLA, I LOVE YOU VERY MUCH"!!!!
I have 2 Christmas Parties to go to this afternoon. The girls are having their Christmas Parties at School this afternoon at 2:15p.m. I have to go and get 2 girls gifts for no more than $5.00 and take there also. We have a Dollar General Store here in our town, and they have some really nice stuff there. I will go there and get a couple of girls presents. I think the girls will get out of School for Christmas Break sometime next Wednesday. No note has been sent home yet, but they have told me that is when they will get out. They will also be having all kinds of goodies to eat at their parties as well.
I would also like to mention that Amy at Bunny Rose Cottage is having a Giveaway for doing her 100th Post. "CONGRATULATIONS AMY" on your 100th Post. All you have to do is leave Amy a comment and tell her your favorite Christmas Tradition. You have until Sunday to enter. She will announce the winner on Monday, December 17th. I have a picture of some of the things she will be giving away. She has some beautiful things as you can see below. So, please go over and visit Amy and enter for a chance to win this great Giveaway.The last couple of days I haven't been feeling too well. I have been just chilled to the bone. Usually when I'm here in the house and not going anywhere, I usually wear shorts and a T-Shirt. I am normally a hot-natured person. I had to put on my flannel pajama's and have been wearing them. Yesterday morning I had to put on some socks. I don't usually wear socks unless I go out, but my feet were just cold yesterday. I also have a fan that sits on a table by my bed that I run year round. I had to turn it off the other day and I couldn't run it because I was so cold. I did wake up yesterday morning around 1:45a.m. and went to the bathroom and turned it on when I layed back down. But when I got up at 4:30a.m., I turned it back off. Anyway, I sure hope I'm not coming down with something. Hubby felt this way on Monday. He just couldn't get warm. You may remember me telling yall that he didn't go out on the truck Monday because he was feeling bad. He felt better on Tuesday and was able to go out. I have had my heat up on almost 80 degrees. I know my Gas Bill is going to be high, but one has to do what one has to day to stay warm.
Well, I guess I'll go do a little visiting. I have lots to do today. The girls are staying all night with my Sister tonight. I am hoping hubby will be home later today. My oldest daughter didn't have her regular Basketball practice last night. They are suppose to have a game in Armorel, AR on Saturday. The schedule doesn't say what time. Maybe she will bring home a note from school today letting me know if she will have it or not and what time it will be. I just hope the weather co-operates and the roads doesn't get slick if we have to go to Armorel, AR. Well, yall take care and have a great Friday. May God Bless Each and Everyone of You.
LOVE & HUGS,
