Today finished up the wrapping of gifts that I have bought. Some of our gifts were bought together as I have not been able to get out to shop very much. My husband is into gift cards so that is what a lot of our gifts are and that is what most of the girls wanted. Yesterday I made fudge and what an easy recipe it was. (Thinking about making some more) Gave some to the neighbor and she was back today and said it was gone. Tomorrow our one granddaughter arrives from S. Carolina to spend Xmas with her her Dad. She is fourteen. We will get the rest of gifts while she is here and are able to find out what she wants. So far all I have is a small gift card so need something more for her. It is very cold here so I am staying in out of the cold and wind. Tonight we are having an easy but tasty supper (spaghetii). I only have that at home when I can wear my bib as I always end up with it all over me. I have now used the electric wheel chair at the store twice and so far I have not hit anyone or knockned over any displays. Lucky Me. Well I am now on my way to read the paper so ,so long for now. lilly

Well here it is Wednesday again and I am up early,in fact it was really a sleeplesss night. It is 18 degrees here and we had a couple inches of snow last night. The snow is what puts me in the mood for Christmas. It is so pretty before it gets dirty. I only have to get some gift certificates amd then I am ready for the Christmas. My hands seem to be behaving badly this morning. Go to type one letter and the seem to want to do something different. I have finally decided on the dooke I will make. It is a no bake trufflle. It has mini chocolate chips in it and then you put it in the fridge to get firm and then you dip them is melted chocolate and back in the fridge to harden. Almost tastes like a cookie dough. All I know is the don't last very long. Well the man just got up so guess I will go talk with him for awhile. lilly

Well here it is Dec.14th and I am not ready for Christmas. We have been having so much company on weekends that what little cleaning I am capable of doing is not getting done. My furniture has a new finish that is called dust so I tell the grandchildren do not touch or you will have to clean it. This last Saturday our newest great grandaughter came to visit with her parents and one of her Aunts. Hailey Marie was born December 4,2009. So tiny and I actually held her most of the time they were here. Our weather has been very cold and rainy but very little snow. Today one of the daughters is coming to visit this morning and will be here for lunch. I am making turkey salad for sandwiches as that is one thing she really likes. Then when she leaves if the weather stays decent I might go finish my Christmas shopping. Our tree is up and the rest of the decorations are in place so at least I have that much done. Friday I baked cookies and they are all gone so will have to do that all over again. Maybe later this week that will happen. Well I have to get clothes ready to laundery so will leave for now. Have a great day . lilly

I tried writing yesterday but kept getting kicked off so decided to wait until today and try again. We have had a busy week as one day I felt really good so we went to Ithaca, N.Y. Christmas shopping. That is the first time I have used the electric cart to shop. Quite an experiemce. Very helpful. That trip took place pn Thursday. Wednesday our daughter from Binghamton came up to see us and brought our new great grandson with her. For lunch Mr. Bob, her and my self made homemade pizza. Turned out really good. Then on Friday another great granddaughter was born. Her name is Hailey Marie. I sure hope this family growth ends soon as I can't keeep track of them all. It is only 28 degrees here this morning. Yesterday we decorated inside for Christmas. Then I decorated the outside of our apartment door as it is a fire dooe so all my magnets and decorations stuck to it with no probllem. Coffee is ready so guess I will go fill my cup and read the Sunday newspapaer. lilly
