Weather

I have been staying in the last couple of days because of the weather. Cold, not just cold but bitterly cold. I guess that true for everyone in the middle of the country. We are preparing for more snow. O K it is winter.
As far as Christmas preparations: Done some shopping and some wrapping. I decorated the new mantle. I found the stocking holders but not the stockings. Our stockings were knitted by John's aunt Bessie. She gave them to us the first year of our marriage. After the birth of each child she gave them a stocking. Bessie has past away so the stockings mean a lot, but I am not sure of where we packed them. The three moves mean we still have boxes not found. We stayed with my daughter when we first moved here so they may be at her place and she has not had time to begin decorating.
Now I must go get Maggie.

Stay warm Betty, it is bitterly cold across the Northern Part of this world. Hope you find your Aunt Bessie's stockings.

Stay comfy and warm. I have a soft spot for Christmas stockings. When my kids were little I made each of them one and then when the grandkids came along I made them ones too. Come to think of it I believe all those stockings are in a box in storage. Sigh.

I am so glad NOT to be in Neenah this time of year! Light a fire, and STAY WAAAAAARM!!! I sure do hope those stockings turn up soon...

You know of course, if you'd have put those stockings in the dryer, you would only find one of them now.

Here's to hoping they turn up soon.
