...the nephew is doing well - thank you for all of your thoughts and prayers. in the meanwhile, the younger nephew is enjoying unlimited access to rice krispie treats and csi. i left him sleeping this morning but he's now with his other aunt and uncle and probably up to his elbows in a pug, a boston and two girl cousins....a very happy boy i'm sure. hopefully, his older brother will get to leave the hospital this afternoon if the kidney stone finishes passing.
they have forcast that dread thing...snow. while i know a lot of you are thrilled with this southern rarity, i'm not among them. call me the snow grinch if you will - i just dislike the absence of driving common sense during any time a flake dares appear. i am; however, fully prepped with the requisite bread and milk, so no worries. i'm also quite the girl scout in that i planned a menu this week that included three soups and slow cooker barbeque.
it's officially so cold her that my hands have shrunk so that my rings keep spinning around on my fingers - that's too cold people. i cannot wear jewelry that annoys me - part of the whole reason i do not wear earrings (a long history of being on the telephone for work broke me of that habit) or clunky bracelets...and that's sad because i love a bracelet.
my poor roses greeted me this morning with drooping heads and i never thought they were more beautiful. i wish i could be so beautiful in my aging as these - somehow my wrinkles never quite look as lovely...ah me.
hope you're having a wonderful first week. be sure to check out the giveaway on lens.us.together. (as well as cheesy cupid)
