We only got a few inches, but the body shops for miles around are doing a "bang-up" business. I got around all right, but canceled an appointment that I had for today. Got enough food in the house to make enough soup to hold me until I get a chance to do some grocery shopping. I heard weird things are happening in Texas. When I was there, people didn't even own coats, but when I left, it was snowing, so forget global warming. Not every family gets to use The Enlarging Machine at Christmas. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=En-fNJEZb0Y
Thanks for the vid. I like the direction she is going. Some of her first solo efforts was kind of slow for me. Here's a vid by Leaves Eyes of one of my favorite songs by them back from a theme CD they did in 2009. Liv has an amazing soprano. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b15yaPYNDRU Got all the cookie packed up. I mail to 9 people so tht took care of almost half of the cookies. Was a very good, well played and close game and fun to watch. We lost it in the last two minutes. How old is Ted? Stil vry old and will stay that way for a couple more days. MIL s so funny - she cn't understand why it shuld be so cold when the sun is shining :) Gads, I aw a blip of that game also during halftime - it eas a blizzard. Whichever teams were playing that one - it iwas a matter of surviving it :) Yesterday we went into town cuz we had a bit of cabin fever and I needed a few things for dinner that night. We had son and his girlfriend over without any kids so was a nice adult evening. I think u have a thing or OG :) Did you find any good bargains? Were you shopping for Christmas presents? Have a not too busy Mon at work.
I missed Nightwish 3 times in Seattle. Once I had bought the tickets and they had to cancel because of visa problem to enter the US from Canda. Once I was in the hospital - had bought tickets and gave them to my niece and in 2012 we were on vaction . Rats :) I just read they have a new live CD and DVD coming out Dec 10 and they have changed female vocalist, again, to Floor Jansen who went on part of their last big tour with them. I'll likely get it as I would like to see the DVD. While I was cruising that I saw that Leaves Eyes has a new CD out also. Have been so busy this past year I have not kept up with a lot of bands I like. Geez, 17 different kinds of cookies and candies. I am burned out on baking :) This is pretty much the only time of the year I do bake except the occasionl dessert or pie. Last year we only put some bows on the tree because Wee Willie was so tiny and still getting healthy so we did not want to take any chance on him chewing something and getting sick. After an initial flurry of interest by everyone, they have pretty much left the tree alone now. It snowed here all day starting early morning and we got about 4 inches and will say very cold next few days. I was wondering if you got any of the wind, ice and snow stuff sweeping across the plains. The Sun game against the 49rs willbe interesting. I know the 49rs do not want to get beat by us again and it is on their turf so I expect it to be close. Have a good day tomorrow.
Too cool! Love it and thanks for passing that on. I have a lot of older Within Temptation and happy they are coming out with a new album in Jan. I have always been a big fan of Tarja's voice from when she was the female vocal for Nightwish. They had an artistic difference several years ago and she left and they got a new singer who doesn't have the depth of Tarja's voice but is pretty good. I'm almost done with Christmas cookie and candy making frenzy. Been spending a lot of time on that and tucking them into the freezer. Adds up to usually around 2,000 :) I mail and give them to a lot of friends and family. this year will be mailing up to WA rather than down to OR. Will give son a teaser box for him and the kids this weekend :) We decorated the house inside and out the past few days too. We're really in the Christmas spirit this yer with the new house. With all that I haven't been on here that much. I am sorry to hear that you ddn't feel well for Thanksgiving abd hope you are feeling better now. Unfortunately holidays sometimes do cause friction and that likely wasn't much fun for you. But at least you won't have to deal with that Christmas. Glad you're getting some down time. Hard when you work as much as you do and then to have to do a bunch of other stuff too. Have you started decorating yet? I am so glad that a few years ago all of us adults decided not to exchange presents anymore - takes away a lot of stress trying to find presents. We won big time Sunday over the Saints! Seahawks rock and rule :) Not only wa the 12th man loud, they actually registered on seismic equipment at the University during the game!
How was Thanksgiving? Ours was great - lots of good food and family time. I just cannot understand how people can just move and leave their pets behind. Make me furious! Likely once they have moved they wind up getting more pets and they sure don't deserve them. How nice of your uncle to feed them - poor kittehs. yesterday was spent cleaning up the holiday aftermath and today we took 2 loads of years worth of dried up pine needles to the dump. Bryan had spent several days raking them into big pile. Son dropped off his utility trailer for us to use and it took 2 loads - about 8 cubic yards. Enjoy your day off tomorrow.
