Ten Days til Chrismas

Well, last night when I went to bed I noticed it was snowing again. It looks so pretty out there. I am anxious to see what it looks like in the daylight. It's pretty cold out there and even inside it is pretty chilly. I have the thermostat set to 60 for night time and it doesn't usually come on until around 7am. So I am sitting under a quilt with Chloe laying under it and up against my leg. She is toasty warm. Our church program ended last night and it was mighty cold out there. We had the heater in the motorhome going so we could go in there to warm up from time to time. On Friday night it snowed a little and it was enough to collapse our screen room. Many of the poles that held it up were bent when we picked it up. Don't know if we can get replacements but we'll try. We had approximately 550 cars come by to see the program. Not bad for a small town. Today I have to finish my Christmas cards. They are done I just need to enclose a few pictures and put stamps on them. I also want to make some chex mix and cookies so I can send them to my grandsons. They won't have their mother with them this Christmas so I'll try to send some love in the form of food. LOL
Hubby is doing really well with his eating and even has stopped drinking his regular sodas. He doesn't like the diet version (yet) so I bought some sugar free Kool Aid for him and he likes that. He doesn't care for iced tea or that would be another option. But he has lost over 10 pounds so far. I am proud of him.
As soon as it becomes light outside I am going to take some pictures. We don't usually get snow here in the western part of the state. Maybe once a year and only a few inches and then it will change to rain and the snow is gone in a day or two. But they are forcasting freezing temperatures for the week so it might stick around a while.

It was close to 50 degrees here yesterday even though it didn't feel like it since it was so windy. Last night it started raining and it is now 5 degrees. What a difference. I hope you have a wonderful week. Hugs

We were warm in the 50's with rain this morning, but the wind is really blowing in colder air and they say 30's by this evening with snow. We have some really up and down days. Glad your hubby is doing so well. I never turn my furnace down so low, but I may have to consider it with the rising heat bills coming. Take care and keep warm. 'On Ya'-ma

We here in Phoenix are settling for rain. How I would love to see snow again.

Glad your hubby is doing so well. We had about 2 inches of snow here last night. I does look so nice. Glad your church function worked out so well!
