Good morning. It's going to be warm, windy and wet today. The weatherman promises temps in the 40's F. I have to share something amazing. Yesterday I made a quick trip to the post office. It was sunny and not very cold. As I was coming out of the post office, I noticed what looked and felt like rain. Sure enough, we were having a sunshiney rain shower. I have never seen this (that I remember) happen before in the winter. It was really pretty.
Did you know that at this moment it is 48 degrees BELOW zero in Anchorage, Alaska??? My goodness, how can anyone live with those temps? It makes me feel ashamed for complaining about our cold temps. I guess we sometimes don't realize how lucky we are with what we have.
For Nani, I must confess that after your comment I opened my box of goodies. I only took out what I thought was perishable and left the rest in the box. My daughter Deanne saw your comment yesterday, and sent me an email telling me very sternly that I was not to open any more presents. I told you she checks up on me.
I did tell Deanne that you said it was okay for me to share some of the goodies with her but she said she could not be bribed. lol. I will take photos of my goodies and post them tomorrow. The ones that I did taste (eat!) were delicious yummy. I must say that I am really enjoying this Christmas.
This morning, let me share a photo of what Audrey has been making lately. Someone told her about "Sparkle Balls" and she made a couple of them. Wow, they are really beautiful. They are made from little plastic cups and a string of mini Christmas lights. Have a look here. Isn't this pretty?
If you would like to try making one of these, you can find lots of places with directions on Google. Some even contain videos showing you how it is done.
A few days ago, I took a photo of some of the last of the Mrs' grapes. They sort of look a bit petrified. I thought they were quite interesting, though, and worth photographing. Their stems sort of look like tiny reindeer antlers.
It's five o'clock now and time for me to start getting ready for work. I have a few busy shifts coming up starting today through Christmas. Then I should be off for a few days. My friend at work has a daughter at home so I swap shifts so that she can be at home with her family for the holiday. That's all my news for this morning, so till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
