The second one was on my way to the post office at 8:30. That was a solid sheet of ice that was about 2 inches thick. Up and down hills and around curves. I came back to the RV park a different way. This is a school bus route so I thought it would have been kept clearer. Boy, was I surprised! Thankfully, I had no problems and my snow tires worked very well. I have the kind of tires that the colder it gets, the softer the tires get. They become almost like suction cups sticking to the ice. It is very pretty though isn’t it? We are supposed to have temperatures in the 40s later in the week so I’m thinking most of this will go away then.
Stocking number 14. A yummy marshmallow snowman that I’ve already eaten!😍
One of my good friends said she would love to have some Christmas dish cloths. I didn’t have any variegated cotton, but I did have one skein each of green and red so I’m doing this pattern and striping them as I go. I started with green on the second dish cloth and I am surprised at how different it makes it look. I don’t know which I like better. How about you? Do you prefer one over the other?
Since most nights I avoid watching the news because my anxiety doesn’t do well with hearing the stories of how the pandemic is affecting so many people in the world, I was very excited about watching it tonight. Why? Seeing the first people receiving the vaccinations for the virus was exciting to me. It means things are finally starting to move forward. On the other hand, the news about the terrible number of people who are infected with the virus right now is devastating. A correction facility just outside of Spokane has over 700 cases of COVID-19 as of today. I believe they said that is over half of the prison population there. Our hospitals are nearly at capacity. I am so glad that there is an end in sight. Maybe by summer we will actually be able to start living somewhat normal lives again. My heart breaks for all of the people who have lost loved ones during this pandemic.
I am so grateful for a loving God who I can pour my heart out to when I feel like it is breaking for those around me. I am wishing each of you a peaceful night and a good Tuesday. I hope your preparations for Christmas are coming along well. I surprised Dennis tonight when I reminded him that next Friday is Christmas. For some reason he thought we had another week to go!
Blessings and hugs,
