Hello everyone!!

Sorry I haven't written a blog for a while.  Just nothing much to write about.  My days are pretty boring.....going to help out at the school in the mornings and coming home to nap and then the evenings to watch tv or work on some craft. 

I have been working on an afghan for my daughter in Florida for Christmas.  I don't know if she even needs it since it is mostly warm there, but I thought sometimes the air conditioning can get cold when she is lounging on her sofa (maybe she does that) and she could just throw it over herself.

She has invited me to travel to Florida for the Christmas break and I am torn as to what I should do.  I would need to stay for the whole 16 days.  Sometimes after being away for just a while I am ready to go home.  I don't have a lot of money for sight-seeing although I wish I did.  However, if I stay home I will be bored out of my mind.  Nothing to make me get up in the mornings....quietness all day long in my small apartment.....since my friends will be celebrating the season with their families.  So what to do?  Any suggestions?

I haven't even decorated for Christmas....I am just the Christmas scrooge this year.  I did do a tiny amount of gift buying (what my pocket book would allow).  Those gifts are wrapped and in a Santa bag in the corner of the living room.

Today we had a few snowflakes and it brought cheers from all the first graders.....oh to be young and excited like that again!

Hope your holiday season is going well.


  1. If you come down, Ruth, please try to make it to Lakeland!! Would love to see you again!

  2. Have wondered where you were! Glad to see you blogging again. From what you said, I assume you are still working with the kiddies at school, and enjoying that. It would be a hard decision for me to make to leave my home at Christmas time, but if you feel you can do it, I say go.....you wont be alone and you will have some warm sunshine to boost your spirits. Do keep us up to date, and a Merry Christmas to you.
