It certainly is a craptastic day to have the furnace be down! It's raining/snowing/icing...ICK. We had a delivery to do around noon over your way Susan and the roads surely aren't great...passable but not great.

Susan, do you have alternative heat? A fireplace? Woodstove or electric heater maybe? Kerosene heater? Electric blanket?

Crappy weather like this means we are in for the rest of the day. Jeremiah and I just finished putting together a giant floor puzzle with all kinds of vehicles. I have a pork roast with sauerkraut in the crock pot and just made a large pan of hard boiled eggs to peel and keep handy for on the go snacks for an upcoming busy week. I still have dishes to do (they are never ending) and the second load of laundry is going. I did spend some time (a few hours) in my sewing room either yesterday or the day before...felt wonderful and I made some serious progress. One of my classmates recently had a baby boy and I am passing along lot of Jeremiah's baby toys that he clearly has outgrown. When it was yard sale time last summer, he would occasionally still play with some of those toys and I just couldn't bring myself to get rid of them. The things that have been well loved and a little past their prime are going to the Salvation Army in 2 more days....we have started a large pile of goodies to GO GO GO!

I love having Pete home for his extended Christmas break...I think Jeremiah and I are going to miss him quite a bit when schedules go back to normal.

The Christmas tree is still up and decorated as is the nativity....both are going to stay up for a while longer as we all love them so much. :)

I think the coffee is done brewing...time for another cup and a good book. :)

Have a great day everybody!
