If we were having coffee, we would be bundling up. It’s 50, according to one of my weather apps but it feels so much colder than 50. The winter weather advisory for Monday/Tuesday has been modified to Sunday, with a chance that it will come in tonight. Ugh!
Tonight my daughter and I are supposed to get the boys out of the house for a few hours so their dad can set up their Christmas present. My ex and his wife sent them a huge TV for their bedroom and their dad is wall mounting it for them and setting up some bean bag chairs for them and then is planning on having hot chocolate and popcorn with a new movie when we arrive back home. He’s doing it tonight because the box is huge and there is no place to keep it hidden until Christmas so they will have an early Christmas gift. Hopefully the weather won’t interfere with that tonight.
Let’s see, what else can I tell you? Yesterday I had 198 views on this blog! It threw me for a loop because I usually get only less than 20, although I’ve been getting closer to 30-35 each day in the past couple of weeks. I came hope last night to check on the laptop. I have a program that gives me the IP address of the people looking at my blog and which post they viewed and how long they were on each post. It turns out that whoever was looking at my stuff was looking at the pictures of Mt. Hood and a few other scenic pictures I have posted in the past couple of weeks. I’m wondering if my pictures will end up on the internet someplace. They, whoever they is, also clicked on my Creative Commons license on my sidebar. Clearly an indication that they want to use my photos.
I’m going to try to write a few new Christmas memoir pieces for this month. I don’t get to do that enough and when I do, it feels really good to get that done! So I’m crossing my fingers that I will get to do that.
I had amazon credit (well, I still do) during Cyber Monday sales and I could not resist buying myself some Kindle books! I got four ebooks, all best sellers, for $15 when they are each normally about $13. So I am hoping to get to start one of them this weekend! By the way, I have recommended it previously but I will do it again. My new favorite Christmas story (well not really new but as about four years ago) that I like to re-read every Christmas is called O Little Town by Don Reid (formerly of the Statler Brothers). It’s a little story about a little town that gives the reader many warm feelings and a great deal to think about. I highly recommend it. I won’t start reading my copy yet. I’ll wait until closer to Christmas.
Well, I have to run and do a couple of errands up the hill. I was going to do them later but if the weather does what they say it will do, then I had better get up there before the road gets icy. Where I’m going it’s about 10 degrees colder than here so I should skedaddle!
Have a super week and I will be coming around to read coffee share posts this weekend. I just have to let my eyes rest a bit between reading posts because my sight is getting worse and worse. But, I will come around.
