My week in a nutshell...

OMG it's cold. Wahhhh! I want summer back. I got up to 16 degrees this morning and it has reached a whopping 25 so far. We are actually supposed to reach 40 by this afternoon. That will feel like a heat wave. I didn't want to get out of bed this morning. Yes, I had the heat on but had turned it way down for sleeping, so I ran to the thermostat and hiked it up and ran back to bed until it warmed up some more.

Let's see, I actually did some stuff this week. On Monday my friend came and picked me up and we went and had Chinese and caught up with each other. She is also retired from General Motors and we used to carpool together (the plant is about an hour from home) for several years. I retired about 4 years before she did and was tickled when she retired because I knew we would be seeing each other more.

Oh and BTW, I did not think about my diet that day. I just enjoyed...bad me.

After I got home on Monday and picked my little table top tree up and put it back together (I forgot to lock Gizmo up),
my granddaughter surprised me with supper that she made herself (she's 12). She made chicken and rice with broccoli and it was pretty good. She said she paid attention the last time I made it for her and me. She eats like her Grandma and her Uncle Bruce. Her mother and brother are picky, picky, picky. But the three of us will eat (or at least try) anything.

So Thursday I treated my daughter to a trip to the beauty parlor with me (she never spends money on that kind of thing). I got my hair cut and she got a cut, thinning (very thick hair), a color and some highlights. She looked great and was so pleased with it. I think that may have been the best Christmas present I bought this year. We went by her job so she could show everyone and they all made over her. I enjoyed it as much as she did, I Hey, I'm still a mom even though she's 37.

We went to Walmart after that and I spent way more than I
had planned but I got just about everything I need for our
Christmas Eve gathering. The only thing I'll get at the last
minute is the Hawaiian Bread for the Spinach Dip.

I hope everyone is having a fabulous (and warm) weekend. I know
many of you are snow bound, except you dang Floridian's that
the rest of us are jealous of.

Hugs, Joyce

A little update...

Boy, this has been a really cold week for Tennessee.
As much as I want to see snow this year, I now
remember why I like summer the best of all the seasons.

I got all my wrapping done this week and I'm very happy about that. I'm slow at it so I did a little at a time and wrapped a total of 28 packages and got them put under my daughter's Christmas tree (for our Christmas Eve fun).

Now all I have to do is buy the goodies that are on my list
for our snacking on Christmas Eve. I ordered a spiral sliced, honey baked ham which will be picked up a couple day before. My daughter makes sausage balls and rotelle dip and I will make spinach dip with Hawaiian bread (love it) and onion dip and Christmas cookies. My son is in charge of bringing dip chips and drinks and he loves to dip things into chocolate so he brings those goodies. Man, I'm getting hungry just thinking about

I've had a hard time with psp this week. No mojo. I don't know how many tags I started and then deleted. I guess maybe I just needed a little break. I hope next week is better. I did spend some time putting a lot of tubes on discs this week. I've heard too many stories of folks who've lost everything in a crash. I really think the best thing you can have is an external hard drive...if you crash you don't lose anything.

Enough rambling for this week. Have a great weekend. Stay warm and, for some, out of the snow. Yes, that's me in the tag Hugs,

Black Friday is here!!!!

I didn't really, but I love this frog that did.
You couldn't give me enough money to hit the stores at 4 A.M. and
fight the crowds. People that do this are determined and I might get hurt. lol
I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Mine was terrific.
I love having the whole family (small that it's mine) together for
a meal and a lot of laughs. Good food, loving family...what more could I want.
Have a good day all and if you went to Black Friday,
I hope you got everything you wanted.
Hugs, Joyce

Short note and some tags...

It's hard to believe that 2009 is almost over.
Next week is Thanksgiving week and before you know
it, Christmas and 2010. Where did it go? Slow down time!
It's been a chilly week but today the sun is shining and it's
supposed to get up into the mid 60's. Nice weather. I looked
outside this morning and it dawned on me...the trees have lost
all of their leaves. When did that happen? I need to pay more
I'll have my 8 year old grandson for the weekend starting tonight.
My granddaughter will be with her dad this weekend so it's just me and Brandon and the cartoon channel. He's grounded so he has to stay in. Hmmmmm, now who is the punishment for? lol.
Well, that's about it for this week. Once again my exciting life
has dazzled and amazed you. No need to thank me.
