Yep, Its Hibernating Time

   I don't go out unless I HAVE to. Except to work, that is. But, after spending 4 hours a day delivering mail in the cold stuff, its no wonder. I don't have a plug in on my truck either, so I go out before bedtime and start her up. Brrrr!
    At least I had the good sense to put together some chili last night. This morning I put it in the crockpot and let it simmer all day while I was at work. The house smells so warm and yummy! I have to run to the store though. I ran out of milk and I need to make some cornbread. While I'm there I'll pick up some hotdogs and buns for chili-dogs tomorrow!
   Next weekend is the start of the Winter Carnival. I'm excited to see the new ice and snow sculptures. Of course, I'll take in the orchid show too. It IS my favorite event. This weekend they change the Conservatory over from the Holiday flower display , to the Winter flower display.
   Hopefully the weather will be a little more seasonable then. I would like to see the fireworks show after the Torchlight parade without freezing my tookus off! Wish I could bring you all with me. I be sipping on the hot chocolate for ya! ; )   Stay warm!

Lazy weekend

I didn't do much in the way of being productive. I got up late, made omelets and french toast for hubby and I.  Played on the puter, took a nap, then made supper. Stuffed chicken breasts and bisquits. I watched a movie called "Up". It was animated and it took me by surprise because it was so touching.  I teared up. The elderly man in the movie resembled my father. His deep love for my mother and his gentle kindness. Well, I just miss them both. Alright, enough of that. Robert DeNiro just won an award on the Golden Globes. Now I can go back to bed. Did I mention that I have tomorrow off work. Martin Luther King Day, thank you very much. Don't be looking for your mail tomorrow. ; )

New Year !?! OK

   Gosh, the holidays seemed slow in getting here, but then (BANG!) they were over. The usual planning and anticipation ensued. Then, the solomn magic of the evening and following day. I really don't have to comment on the amount of snow that fell on us. Most of you got a lot too.
   But, however boring this might be, I have a few resolutions.
   First, I miss blogging! I miss sharing my photos! I resolve to figure this site out and get comfortable with it.I was soo comfortable with Windows Live that I could not get my head around them closing it. Why? It was obviously successful. For our demographic, anyway. It had to be something to do with money. I don't like being forced to change.
    Secondly, Fizz has inspired me to increase my random acts of kindness. I doubt I could reach her level of generousity, but I will try to uplift as many people I can.(with out being annoying).
   Thirdly, and I know this is cliche, but, in the last 5 years, I have put on at least 50 extra pounds. I am ashamed of my self and will try to get to healthier weight before I irreversably damage my good health.
   None of these seem unattainable. I will let know how I'm doing. Hopefully because of the first resolution ; )
