Here it is December and I'm enjoying driving around watching everyone hassle for Christmas shopping. I'll start my next year shopping around March and be done by the first of October. I do 90% of it online and the rest for real just because I like Rural King Farm Supply and Lowe's.

We've had highs of 20 for the last three days and should get up to 50 tomorrow. That means that folk here will be out in shorts and T shirts because of sunshine and no wind. Adele is wanting to get the Christmas tree down this afternoon so I'll help her with that.

Hope everyone is doing well.

Our Christmas highlight was on Monday when we got to help our daughter and our grandkids decorate their tree, with our other daughter there too and of course our son-in-law. It was just wonderful, especially because it was on the evening of the day that we got to have the youngest over all day.
They will all be out of town for the actual Christmas holiday, so we'll probably all celebrate together sometime in January.
Bob took some great pictures, I'm going to see if I can figure out how to get one on here.
The youngest is wearing his Halloween outfit (it's NOT called a costume after Halloween) of one of the power rangers...I think mystic force. What made him decide to put on the santa hat I don't know...but maybe because he was SO caught up in the excitement.
I hope everyone is having a great holiday season.

Oh, I am so sorry things are going so rough for you. You know, it is through our suffering that we are brought closer to Christ. Hold on tight to Him for He will lead you through this. You are in my prayers.

Well, it happened this weekend. Folks were out Christmas shopping in shorts and t shirts. We had a 65 Saturday and 67 sunday. I don't think my furnace has ran all week so if that's global warming then bring it on. A bit more to the season now with 50s all this week. On Christmas day I'll be taking Adele to the airport for her flight to the east coast. She will come home New Years day. I didn't want to drive out there this soon again so she is going alone this time. It will give her some time with her three daughters and son. Anyway I'll be going along next June to Ithica for the youngest daughter's wedding.

Other news. I saw the EP today and the results of my every two year echo was in. My EF is still at 60% thanks in part to the coreg and ongoing regimen. I can also thank all the wonderful people here that I have known for the past few years for their support and information shared. Thank you all.

Glad your echo came back good. I have had good results with the coreg as well. I hope everyone has a great holiday.

We had quite a storm here in Seattle last Thursday and Friday. Trees are down all over the place. Apparently someone in the city government had a brainstorm about 20 years ago to plant trees along the sidewalks that had shallow roots so the sidewalks wouldn't get hurt from the roots growing underneath them.
Well, the sidewalks weathered the storm very well, but the streets, powerlines, houses, cars and fences didn't do too well. It's a mess, with trees down all over the place...at least one or two every block in our part of the city.
We were without power for almost 24 hours, from early Thursday evening until Friday evening. Lost everything in our apartment fridge (not that great of insulation I guess) but salvaged the stuff in our freezer because we hauled it over to the house of the one daughter who didn't lose her power (she was out of town so we could have camped out there if we'd needed to).
We didn't get our cable back until this evening, so no TV or computer...which was not fun except we were so thankful to have electricity. I guess over a million people in the area lost power, and the last I heard on the radio there were still some places with no power. Meanwhile the temperatures are in the 30s and even 20s.
Our air quality is horrid because of the cloud cover and everyone burning to keep warm. The stores are all wiped out of their batteries, flashlights and candles. We did have some from my preparedness supplies I bought right after 9/11 but we need to stock up on more after things level out and the stores get resupplied.
I hope everyone is doing well, and Gilbert congratulations on your great results. You work hard to keep yourself fit and in good shape and it is paying off.

Denise, I had thoughts of you sitting in the dark after I heard about the storms on TV. It proved right with you not being on here for a couple days but I knew you would let us know how things were going the first chance you got. Glad to hear that loss of power and some food was the worse it got for you. Thanks for the update and glad you're back.

I want to wish everyone a very merry Christmas Eve. I probably won't have a chance to be back on till Tuesday or Wednesday now.

We went to see Adele's mom Friday night and came back last night. Today my kids will be coming through for an early Christmas start and we will all be together again at my mom's tonight for dinner and gifts. Tomorrow I'll be taking Adele to the airport around noon and then I'll get back to mom's for our usual Christmas Day dinner also with the rest of the family there. Mom is 89 and still does all the cooking.

A very merry Christmas to everyone.

I FINALLY changed my Avatar! I know it's too tiny to see much, but that's okay since I was squinting in the photo anyway. :)
It became a week long quest for me...a challenge with the photoshop, Internet Security and this site's requirements but I'm so proud that I was able to do it that I'm leaving it on even though it doesn't show the grandkids as good as the last one. I'm hoping that the pics from Christmas are closerups (is that a word?) and that I can get a better one on here.

Well, the kids are cute as always, Denise, but, even expanded, the picture is smallish and grainy LOL! We appreciate your sharing anyway and will look for more. All the best to you and to all the HB-ers (I like that---kind of like snowboarders LOL) in 2007...

Happy New Year, everyone!!
