After we had 50 degrees yesterday, today barely got to 32 and it was very windy. I shouldn't even have tried to do anything with my hair today as it got messed up as soon as I went outside this afternoon. They put that chemical on the streets so it is going to either rain or snow. I'll have to keep a blanket on my knees-they get so stiff in the winter.
I did some errands-put poinsettia silk flowers on Mom's grave, shredded some papers, took my recycling to the site, and walked around inside Wal-mart. I splurged & bought a cheap $3 bear with a purple hat & scarf & velcroed it to the grille of my Jeep. I always like it when other people put stuff on their cars, like wreaths or grinches, etc, so I did it too. It just makes me smile every time I see it.
I found this roll of green velcro this year & used that to put up my garlands on the porch. It was so easy & it took way less time than in past years with me trying to use skinny wire. Yeah for velcro! I also used the velcro to wind up some long cords-they look great.
I actually turned off the tv, because now that I've blogged-I like it! I may volunteer with the Salvation Army tomorrow, they have expressed a need to have people hand out gifts to adopted families. It's for 3 hours in the morning, 9-12, and I think that I can handle that Ok. I like to be needed, and since I haven't worked for 11 months now, I don't feel that way too often. I've picked a child's name off a tree for several years but with my limited income now, I didn't this year. This will be my way of helping someone this year. I'll find something red & green to wear, how fun, maybe I'll put a jingle bell on one shoe too, just for fun.
