Christopher recently called from his office, asking for me to text him updates since he had planned to work late tonight. Yes, I'm the one in the family who is the weather
The house is decorated, although I didn't use everything this year. But it looks nice. The tree is especially beautiful. I will take pictures when the sun comes out again. I haven't seen it for a few days. I know it is there somewhere behind the clouds.
I was going to do a Q&A post but there hasn't been time. I will do one specifically for the pantry on Saturday and then a general one next week. God willing and we don't lose power with the ice and all. There have been so many questions in Comments and a few e-mails.
Sorry if you wrote an e-mail and have not heard from me. It has been challenging to get computer time but I DO hope to answer all of them waiting. Although it may require blowing the dust off a few, they have been there awhile. But I do love receiving your e-mails.
Thank you again to everyone who has entered Amazon through clicking on the Widget here on the blog. It all adds up! As I've said, if you don't enter through mine and your best friend has a widget on her blog... that's fine! It just doesn't cost either of us anything and Amazon is (for the most part) the only thing I promote at the moment. I love Amazon. Perhaps because I love brown paper packages wrapped up in... packing tape? :)
Your entering Amazon through the widget allows me to do a little shopping with credit. (((HUGS)))
So... with the winter weather moving in, I plan to spend some time in the kitchen whipping up some comfort food. Hubby noticed a package of sausage in the frig this morning, he loves it and we rarely buy sausage or bacon (we hardly buy meat at all!). Well, he bought Grade B maple syrup earlier this week so I have to make pancakes tomorrow and one really needs sausage with their pancakes. Everyone knows that. Unless they are vegan.
By the way, I know a few people have said they plan to read Winter Solstice by Rosamunde Pilcher since I mentioned it. Love the book! I told my daughter that I almost cried when it was over.
But Heather (who recommended it to me) had warned me it takes awhile to get into and I was glad she did. For Pilcher takes time introducing each of the main characters but when they finally all come together... it is beautiful. It will be reread many times.
These characters are a little different from Goudge's for they are more... flawed, or at least a few are. I found it interesting to see the way they view God for it is much like many people I know. He is always "there" but not the center of their world. As I said... very interesting and lovely.
Now to check the first evening newscast so I can text the progress of the storm. I know someone who needs to know if he should leave the office now or work late.
