Good morning! It's 5 degrees and we got another thin layer of snow.
These dustings have added up to just enough depth to encourage children's footsteps.
The mystery building across the way is now three stories high. I feel badly for the people who have been out working on it when it's been below zero out there and windy!
This has already been a Christmas season filled with gratitude. I'm especially, especially grateful that angels were watching over Dagan and Leah and their three other young passengers Sunday night as they were traveling cross country from Dagan's Dad's to see a movie...
and hit a deer.
Leah said their Versa did just what it was supposed to--the front end crumbled and kept them all safe from harm.
They had the car towed to Fergus Falls.
I don't think they are going to see it for a while.
But they were all safe and no one was hurt--except the deer and the car, of course. So Dagan and Leah had quite an exciting Christmas that they won't forget any time soon!
Karma and I, on the other hand, had our quiet Christmas. I watched my two favorite movies I have on DVD that I watch every year--It's a Wonderful Life and A Christmas Story. And Christmas Eve night I opened the presents from Tori in England for Karma and me. Tori has lost both her eyes from glaucoma and yet she knit this mouse (I bet it's her own invented pattern, too) and sewed the parts together. She made the tea light candle, too. I also got an angel bookmark...
...and Karma got two packages of treats! Tori even makes her own cards. :)
Thanks, Tori! (She doesn't blog anymore, but I'll thank her anyways.)
Karma has been sleeping with the red mouse.
I kind of took my own vacation for several days from the McLap. I was a lazy bum this week--just contentedly watching movies, reading, writing letters, and just hanging out with my moody fur-buddy. Caroline came on Wednesday. Yesterday I spent the whole day quickly catching up online. Today...probably time to get something creative started. ;)
Just been a sweet week. A week to be thankful in so many ways. Bless you!! Be safe. Be happy. May your life be filled with joy! A new year is upon us! :)
