Good Evening everyone..
A stormy Sunday here in Eastern Canada..
We have snow and ice and more ice but thank the Lord we still have hydro..
So many people do not have it and may not have it even by Christmas Day..
We are to have this going on all night yet so who knows how much the hydro lines can take..
So blessed though to have wood heat...
I made a nice big turkey soup and keep refilling my big thermos jugs with boiling water..
If I can have a hot cup of tea then all is well.. smile..
The washer is filled with water in case of outages for the flush and Terry braved the roads and went out and stocked up with gas for the snow blower and such..
Not much more we can do..
What preps do you make if you know a storm is on it's way..
Last week we made a couple of trips to St. John as Terry needed to have some tests done..
We live on a bit of a higher plain... grin..
Not that high actually but some of the pics look that way, eh?
After his tests which have been good so far we went shopping again..
So many people shopping..
My goodness it makes a person wonder where all the money is coming from..
Afterwards we dropped by Shonda's to pick up a couple of parcels..
She was preparing for a dinner that she and Dave and her boys were putting on for the ministers from their church..
The tables were decorated beautifully..
She made all of the centrepieces..
Aren't they lovely?
The tables were all set up in the downstairs of their house..
Another tree is decorated down there in the family room..
The gathering was last night and she said it went well..
Some wonderful young people worked very hard at serving their elders..
Bless their hearts..
I have been busy today trying to get the homespun Christmas presents made for you know who..
I will show you some of the finished product later..
I don't want her to see anything yet..
We don't open our family gifts until they are all here on Boxing Day..
Sure hope she will like them..
This has been a very fun project, actually..
I have enjoyed the challenge ..
I was not expecting Shonda to change her style half way through the year but I think I have a handle on it..
Tomorrow I hope to get some baking and wrapping finished..
Are you ladies all ready?
I am never really all ready.. It just happens and I stop.. grin..
Church services all over the province have been cancelled today..
Seems funny not to go to church today but that is Winter..
Take care my dears and keep warm and safe..
Love and Prayers
