|There are a few of my favorite things...|
8 Dec, Nothing on our schedule today, but this poses a problem, now to figure out which pressing computer tasks should be first. It isn’t raining, but 10,000 people in the area are without electric power. While walking, we noticed the lake is very high. Ron’s Trail maintenance is working, the Trail is dryer.
7 Dec, Its a Mir-A-cle! 7 December and the Christmas cards are in the mail. Never mind that we are burning the candle on all four ends. Cynthia wss happy her favorite editor reviewed a Christmas letter to her high school classmates. It is soon ready to mail. There are numerous reasons for being happy today. One of them isn’t the deluge of rain preventing our daily walks. The rain is almost as heavy as from a fireman’s
Hose at times.
6 Dec, At ten-thirty on the nose, plus two minutes, we pulled into the storage unit to load grandson Steven's pickup to take to granddaughter Corrie in her new home. Cynthia is delighted Corrie is interested in the Bible Dictionaries, file hangers and folders. Slowly, but surely, we are emptying out the second storage unit. It is always fun to lunch with Steven! Later, we managed a short walk, but the heavens leaked sprizzles and we turned back. The seriUUS rain begins tomorrow with possible flooding. HOW can two retired people be so crazy busy?
5 Dec, Another trip to Dr. Sim’s office late AM followed by Jason’s Deli for a baked sweet potato and salads got us going early. The Shoe Hospital fixes purses, so that was a really, really critical stop. Wally World for food, and fleurs for Smooch Smooch, rounded out a long day and we were ready for hiking. The crimson and orange sunset was phenomenal.
4 Dec, NO! We did NOT go to a doctor’s office today! We DID go to the storage unit to organize the boxes that are going to Granddaughter Corrie. YAY for us! Ron worked on recycling, the James Lea Book, Christmas letters and more of the same in reverse.
3 Dec, YUP! We had another doctor appointment in the Woodlands; we were at Dr. Sims office by 11:30 right on the money. Our Christmas letter was printed at Office Depot for a huge sum of $5.00. The letter will cost $20.00 to mail. Our friends are well worth the big bucks. We went shopping at the Verizon Store for a new flip phone for Ron. That old faithful flip phone got rained on and ti seemed to be dead. Interestingly, in the Verizon store, the battery booted up a bit with a sign of life but not enough life to get the contacts uploaded to the Cloud. The old phone did not have a SIM card., so all contact numbers are gone. So here's the deal... if you phone Ron, your phone number will be in his new phone.
2 Dec, Rise N Shine! Ya gotta get up, ya gotta get up! We do? Yeah. We do. Sigh! The drive to attend church with Roxanne took an hour. After worship, we had an early Christmas with Paul’s family. How fun to see Fyn and Zoe open their Christmas gifts. Fyn said she wanted soft pink towels because her towels are scratchy. She was delighted to receive very soft pink towels, a robe, slippers, and pajamas that have her name on them. Roxanne prepared a lovely holiday dinner for us at her home. We are mighty full! Thirty days of thanksgiving were duly observed, ending two days ago and I haven't posted how thankful we are for our life together. It goes without posting, but we say it often to each other. Thank God!
1 Dec, Texas is having near record breaking heat after surprising hard freezes early November. Is August catching up to us again?? After morning stretches, exercises and oatmeal, Cynthia cleaned the condo. Ron scrubbed the motorcycle clean. Ron platted properties for the James Lea book, and we walked to the lake. The car is loaded with Christmas gifts to bring to Paul’s tomorrow.
