This picture is so old-fashioned looking and just give you the warm fuzzies. Christmas is almost here, friends. I am so frazzled and not ready. I don't think I've ever had such a stressful Christmas. I want everything perfect and it's not going to be by a long shot. I just keep plugging away, though.
Yesterday began my day by making pumpkin spice muffins for breakfast. I had only 2 eggs in the house and used them both so I was so hoping they would turn out. They did and they were so good! I love making muffins for breakfast.
I had to go to Target to get some ink for the printer. While I was there I decided to do the food shopping since it was a short list. I found out, though, that a short list at Target costs as much as a long list at Shop Rite. The food is so much more expensive. But I was there, so I got it.
The Dollar Spot is always my favorite part. There were so many cute things there. I wanted to take a video and show it all to you but... Where did all these people come from? The place was packed. Oh, come on. It was a Wednesday morning. Who packs out a store on a Wednesday morning? Apparently retired people do since most of them were my age or older.
I got the food and the ink and nothing else. I didn't want to leave Joe alone too long. He is so much better, but not completely there yet.
Joe had a doctor's appointment at the VA Hospital yesterday but we couldn't go. Why? He lost his wallet. We have looked all over the house for over 24 hours and have still not found it. We know it is in the house. We know it has not been stolen. But where it is is anyone's guess. We will keep looking. He needs the cards in the wallet to get into the hospital and to see his doctor. Please pray that we find it.
We ended up going to Bible Study last night. Joe was supposed to teach, but wasn't up to it. So Pastor Ralph took over for him. We were late getting there because dinner was late. Oops. We were still looking for that wallet.
When we came out of church the moon was full and beautiful. I tried to take a couple of pictures of it, but it didn't turn out. They were all hazy and blurry. But this morning when I went into the kitchen to make breakfast, there was the moon shining into the windows from the west. Yes! I grabbed my camera and got some great pictures. Notice that the trees are now empty of leaves. Last week they were gorgeous with color. We had a wind storm and now they are bare. I guess winter is here.
Yes, it is dark at 7:00 a.m. But we are almost at the place where we will start having longer days instead of shorter ones.
So now I have to start my day. Debbie and I are going out this morning to finish Christmas shopping. We are headed to Walmart and One DollarZone. If I can finish everything today, I will be one happy person. When I come back I will attack the rest of the living room. Hopefully there will be more pictures for you tomorrow.
Have a good day and stay warm. It's not getting above the 20s here today.
