I have 4 gas cans and one 30lb propane tank to fill today and they are all in the back seat of my Neon. On the way to work I discovered I hadn't taken the matches out of my pocket from lighting the water heater... so if I get stopped tonight on the way home... they're going to think I some sort of terrorist or pyromaniac. YIKES.
Now for some pictures. I haven't taken too many, but thought you'd like a few of snow and a couple of Christmas and maybe a few random shots.
Here's Mr. D with his "Christmas Tree". Of course we have no room in our camper for a tree, so he grabbed the flyswatter and stuck an ornament on it and proclaimed it to be our tree.
Thankfully Esther, a friend from church, came to our rescue and loaned us a very small tree... so here he is with the real tree.
On December 27th was Joanna's birthday and we decided to go do something together. That day we got the first big snow and so we were delayed getting together, but we did get to a thrift store and KMart and a latte. Here is her little camper in the woods when she got home...
Driving on all the back roads made for a fun night. We have lots more snow now. I'm sure her little camper is now well insulated.
This was the cross stitch I made for Mr. D. I found this pattern of his favorite hymn and knew it needed to be done. I will hang this in his office when we get into our home.
On Christmas Day we called Heather and Dexter. We also talked for a little while to Brandon. In some small way we are all together... Joanna, Doug and I talking on the phone to Heather.
Here's little Esther one of our neices, wrapped up in a blanket from Aunt Jean and Uncle Peter. Perfect! We had a wonderful weekend in Maine January 1&2.
Well, this post has officially come to an end. I must return to my duties and have been having issues adding each picture today for some reason.
Hope you are all staying warm. Keep thinking about spring... it's just around the corner. Break out the seed catalogs and a hot cup of tea and sit before a roaring fire dreaming about summer gardens. Except the "roaring fire", I'll be doing the same.
