This is such a beautiful tree, but it looks so cold. Still, I like it and I hope you do too.
First before I forget again, Joe says to thank you for all your prayers on his behalf both for his health and for his missing wallet. He said it touched his heart to know that you cared so much for him. God has His people everywhere. Sometimes we forget that.
We did find Joe's wallet (finally) yesterday morning. It was under the bed with his shoes in front of it. How it ever got there I have no idea. But we are very thankful that it was found. Not to brag but three guesses who found it and it wasn't Joe.
I woke up yesterday morning at 3 a.m. and couldn't go back to sleep so I got up and started my day. However, because I was so tired, I ended up on the computer and watching TV most of the day. It was a lazy day for sure.
I can't find any of my hats. I think we must have a black hole somewhere in this house where all our missing things get sucked into. But I have tons of yarn, so I made myself a hat yesterday. I used a wool/angora blend from Ireland along with a thin variegated yarn. After three false starts, I finally got the gauge right and finished it in one day. I'm glad because it is cold out.
I will post yesterday's temperatures below. It was the coldest night in Philadelphia in 8 years. I mean COLD. The whole house was cold and I couldn't get warm. I wore my heavy sweater all day. I had the fire going too. It just took the chill off. So what to do to get warm? Bake!
I baked some chocolate chip cookies for Joe and me. I would put my hands in front of the oven to try to warm them up while I was working. They were like ice and hurt. Oh the joys of poor circulation! But at least I have hands and I am thankful for that.
After dinner I started cleaning off the coffee table. It is a spot where everything gets dumped. Doesn't everyone have a table like that? I am almost finished. I figure by noon I will have it done and decorated. Then on to picking up the floor. I'm getting there. Everything I do is one less thing to do later. Plus it makes me feel good.
I am so excited about tomorrow. Not only is my former pastor the guest speaker at church, but in the evening we have our Christmas Cafe. It is a gathering we have every Christmas with live music, food, beverages and a great time with our friends. You can see the former years by clicking here
Last Christmas was so sad. We had no pastor. We had no special music. But the Elders carried on. Only a few people showed up and just Bud and I played music and then threw on some CDs. Last year.
This year we have so many guest musicians coming and even a Christmas Carol sing-along planned. It is going to be great. You know I'll have something for you to see.
So now I will get off of here and start my day. Lots to do. More cookies to bake. I am doing more chocolate chip cookies today, but these are to give away.
