Come on in gang and dry off!
My gosh has our weather been crazy here in Pennsylvania! First it`s cold enough to freeze a ducks breath then it climbs up into the forties and rains bucketfuls. Tonight the weather service is predicting our temperatures are supposed to drop out once more, so all the rain may turn into ice. Glorious days are here again! Feral and her arch-nemesis ice. *Sighs* I have enough trouble keeping my feet under me on a dry summer day. Ah well, such is life here in the Laurel Highlands. Despite the winter troubles I cannot imagine living anywhere else.
Since the weather has been so ugly we`ve been busy doing inside things over the past few days. Yesterday we went out in the cold and found our Christmas tree. We opted to get a short one this year for three reasons.
Reason 1-Feral fell down a couple of months ago (I know, shocking right?) and my left knee hasn`t been the same. Kneeling down to water the tree on the floor sounded downright painful.
Reasons 2 & 3-Lu-Lu and Lucius. Their interest has already been piqued and warnings have been warned numerous times.
Oh sure I know he looks innocent but trust me an imp lurks behind those green eyes.
To keep himself occupied on the long and cold winter nights Mister has been doing a European mount for Miss Yodeling`s buck. He got it finished and I think it looks really good! She has it hanging in her room amid fair ribbons and rock posters.
Today I spent a bit of time on one of my fiction tales then locked myself into the bedroom to wrap presents. Two hours later I emerged with a goofy grin of victory. Everything purchased had been wrapped!! I broke into a goatherder clog dance then recalled I had yet to do my shopping for my mother-in-law and dad. I`ll grab those later though. Too much wrapping makes me slightly loopy or loopier depending on who you ask.
After lunch Mister and I finally got the molding up! Only took us a month since the new floor was put down but this, like wrapping presents, is something a person needs to build mentally for. Mister and I concluded that the job looks darn good considering it was Mr. & Mrs. Slapdash doing the work! As long as our one brother-in-law doesn`t look too closely next time he`s here it`ll all be good. (Tina, when you read this just inform your husband to keep his eyes above molding level.)
Dinner is now done and over and the night has come far too quickly. So here`s hoping that things tomorrow morning aren`t too precarious, ice-skating at six in the morning is NOT on my top ten favorite things!
How`s your weekend been???
