I’m sitting here on the first day of Winter, 2013 with an outdoor temperature of 75 degrees. Watching some minor bowl game being played in a blowing snow, while tornado warnings scroll across the bottom of the t v screen. Welcome to Winter in the deep South.
It’s hard to believe that it has been nearly a month since my last post. Pretty easy to surmise that not much has been happening since Thanksgiving. Just the everyday events that make up life at home.
We decided back in the Summer that we would like a walk-in shower in our master bath. Found us a contractor which came highly recommended, and made an appointment for a November-December time frame. You can probably guess when he showed up. This past Monday morning. Here we are in the middle of the Christmas season, with all the family coming in tomorrow, and our little house in much dis-array And the carport is covered with demolition junk and construction materials. Go figure.
I’ve been reading the blogs of many folks heading for what they thought would be warmer weather. The Caves left Illinois for Texas, but have been chased by ice, rain, and cold temps. Al and Kelly are having temps in the forty’s in Arizona, but Janna and Mike might possibly think that was a heat wave. Mark is “stuck” in Ouray, waiting on a doctors appointment, and possibly a visit with a surgeon. The list could go on and on, but I’ll spare you. Just saying thanks to all these folks, and many more, which help me through the boring times at home.
Things ARE looking up. Though many of my close friends say I see the glass as half empty, it always looks full when it comes to travel plans. Baring any bad news, the Egg should be posting from some new environs shortly after the New Year.
Lastly, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all our readers. We hope you have a fantastic holiday season. May you be blessed with the presence of family and friends. And, please remember the REAL “reason for the season”…..jc
