Weather is coming in, ouch

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.

Volunteering is great - so go for it! Especially in red & green with a jingle on your shoe - sounds delightful. Polly


Fantastic.. well done you it is great you want to do something constructive xx


Well done, great to help those less fortunate at Christmas. What chemicals? don't like the sounds of that? Where do you live? what is 50 in centigrade?


It might just be salt, I'm not sure what they put down on the streets. I'm in Lincoln Nebraska, USA. Sorry, but I have no idea how to convert Fahrenheit to celcius.

I didn't end up volunteering today, but I will tomorrow. I'm going to help set up their toy shop for disadvantaged children/parents. I guess that I fit into that category now, but I don't need any toys.
