Tuesday-10am

T-Tuesday over at Elizabeth's again already.  Where did the week go?  I'm on my last Christmas letter to tuck into a card.  I'll finally be done today!  :)
I've done laundry, baked bread & butterball cookies, and mailed off fifty Christmas cards since we last talked.  That's where the time has gone, I guess--LOL!  ;)

The big plow came to clean up the parking lot yesterday.
See how nice that corner looked when he was done. 
We had a lot of drifting snow. 
But they did clean off that sidewalk that goes to the fire door!  TaDa!!  Very happy about that. 
The big plow was pushing the huge snowpile between the garages as far back as he could.  Makes sense since it is awfully high for this early in the winter. 
He was having to avoid pushing the snow against that little tree you can see there behind and between the garages, but he managed to clean it up quite a bit and made room for more snow. 
I'm having troubles with Blogger this morning (not wanting to load pictures and being slow), so I think I will say goodbye while I'm ahead and hope this posts.

Karma says a comfy hi! 
The quote today is pretty much how I feel about the holiday season.  Just think...if we ALL had this goal...all year round...forever and ever...ahhh!...what we could be!!  How we would shine across the universe!!  :):)

  2. Just stopped by to say, Hi Rita. Snow again for you, glad you're wrapped up snug. I was pleased to see my Christmas cards finished too.
    Only one more week and all that's planned will be past! Thanks for commenting on my blog, I really should be as disciplined as you are about posting LOL.

  6. Blogger does gets its dander up now and then. Sounds like you have been very busy these past few days. Good to write a shorter post now and then, too! :-)

  13. I love the quotation. I've sent one card: The Hurricane's. It was the most important, but I hope to finish the rest this afternoon. And to think I said I would have cards done by the 10th. I should have said the 10th of January, 2014.

    Love,
    Janie

  15. I am rather envious, we have had no snow yet. It is mild here for December!
    I think we may not get any snow this year, though it normally arrives after the holiday!

    You appear to be very happily employed:)))

  16. I've already seen enough snow to last me the Winter! Ah, the smell of fresh baked bread and cookies makes being snowed in worth it! Hi to Karma!

  17. Good job getting your cards done! I am woefully behind. Hope you and Karma have a great T Day!

  18. The card was beautiful thank you! Yes we have that darn white stuff over here too:(

  19. I am late getting around to everyone. I am overwhelmed this year with out of town guests and dinner out almost every evening. Whew.
    That sure is a lot of snow. We have had more than the normal amount for December too. I like snow but when it starts this early I get sick of it pretty quick.

  20. Congratulations on getting so much done--LOVE the quote!!

  21. Glad your cards are finally finished and your baking is done for a few days. Bleubeard says hi to Karma. He's cold, but not snowed in like she is.

    Sorry I'm late. My internet is down and will be for a couple of days, so I'm at Sally's working on her laptop, which is NOT fun. I'm no good with a touchpad because I need a mouse.

    Thanks for joining T today. I had trouble with blogger, too. But I thought mine was all due to my internet problems. Looks like I had more than one problem before I got shut down.

  22. Christmas 356 days a year... goodness the very idea makes me exhausted! But it would be wonderful if even 25% of the "unselfish" 'tude would hang around.

Just a note: I don't pass on awards or do tags, and I no longer comment on blogs that have word verification (see top right hand corner of my blog). So if you haven't heard from me that's probably why. Sorry.

I read and appreciate each and every comment, but it became too overwhelming to personally respond to each one like I used to here in the blog comment section. I will answer questions and communicate via email, though, if you have an email address listed on blogger and I do try to respond to every comment.

Have a really great day! Karma says hi! :) :)
