Winter Has Arrived
Winter has arrived in St. Louis! My camera is not cooperating so no pictures for awhile. I have been scanning some from various magazines and books lately. We had maybe an inch of snow yesterday morning but it melted by mid day. We awoke to maybe a half inch if that this morning. It is pretty cold out today. I have Maddie here keeping me warm with her hugs and snuggles. She is napping right now, but will wake up soon. Yesterday afternoon we had a nice meal at Katy and Brian's and Bobby and Rebecca came over. We are trying to get our Christmas plans organized as to who is going where and how can we get together. So far it looks like Christmas Day at Katy and Brian's. Maybe one night here. I don't plan on doing very much shopping for gifts. We have kinda gotten out of that habit these past few years. It used to be fun years ago to try and find that something special for someone, but I don't know if it is age or what that has let the air of the fun. At out age, there isn't anything much that Bob or I want or need, so I would just as soon skip the exchange of gifts. Money is always a little tight and I surely don't like to waste money on a gift that someone will not use. If I have time, I may make a handmade something or other. How about your family? Are you big on exchanging gifts?
