The storm missed us so far. My heart goes out to the ones it didn’t miss. My sister in West Virginia got the torrential rains and my brother near St. Louis had some icing. Right here and now in central Illinois it is 16 degrees with a wind chill of 5 degrees. It is cloudy and a typical winter day although winter isn’t officially here yet.
I have given up on Christmas shopping. For some reason the spirit has left me. The fact that the UPS man delivered the wrong package to me a couple of days ago didn’t help. I had to hurry and put on my coat and hat and go chasing the UPS truck 3 blocks to catch him and exchange the package that he gave me for the one that belonged to me. He tried to argue with me and did aggravate me so that I called the main UPS number to complain. If anyone needs that number I have it. LOL!!
To cheer me up I took some pics this morning of the decorations I have here in my little ‘house’.
in front of my living room window.
sitting on top of my printer
my sister Rae gave this to me many years ago. It still lights up Rae.
my ceramic Christmas tree from many years ago. Still has all of its lights.
The light was shining wrong down on the picture of Jim but I like it anyway. I have quite a few more Christmas music boxes other than the ones in this picture.
My kitchen window is still boarded up inside and out so on a cloudy day like today it is very dark in my kitchen. I was promised my new window would be replaced within 2 weeks. The 2 weeks is up on Saturday which is exactly 2 weeks from the time the insurance adjuster was here. When I look out my living room window and see the devastation around me I tell myself to stand straight and thank God that I was one of the lucky ones.
Have a wonderful weekend all of you. Do something nice for someone today. You will feel better and so will they. Stay safe and be happy!!
