The world is white outside my window. Like in snow-white. We got about 2 inches of snow on Saturday night. And it was very, very cold. We had an actual temperature of -9 with a wind chill of -22 degrees. I mean to tell you we don't get this kind of cold, cold temps very often and I don't know how you guys that live in places that do take it!!
AS I PONDER....
I am pondering Christmas! The things I yet need to do. I have groceries to order. A few $10 gifts for a couple of gift exchanges we have coming up! A trip to the bank for some crisp bills to give as gifts. And I am still working on some house cleaning!! Probably all the same things that you guys are doing! Right?
WHAT I'M READING....
I am reading Year of Yes, by Shonda Rimes and I am listening to Small Great Things by Jodi Picoult. I finished Anne of Green Gables and will review it later.
WHAT I'M WATCHING...
It was a sad week as I watched the final episode of Rectify. I really, really liked this show and I didn't want it to end. But all good things will come to an end! The story line came full circle. Daniel Holden was wrongly accused of a rape and murder and spent 19 years on death row, at which time he was released because DNA test results have shown that he was not the person who raped her. While the county is deciding to re-prosecute him, Daniel admits guilt so that neither his family or the family of his young girlfriend will have to go through that again. As part of the plea deal he is banished from his home state of Georgia. Now Daniel needs to learn how to live his life, away from his family, and deal with all the years of prison. A powerful show!! If you haven't seen it, I encourage you to watch it!! Fantastic acting!

A QUOTE I WANT TO SHARE...
A peek into my week...
Darian has a new job. He starts tomorrow at GNC! 8:30 a.m. This will be very different from what he has been doing at Braum's. And I will be the taxi driver. We only own one car and he is NOT driving it! Period. He needs to work on getting his own car if he is not leaving soon for the military. (for those wondering, he is still in the enlistment process. I don't know why it seems to be taking so much longer. They want him to be sure THIS TIME, I guess). And I haven't decided if he is sure yet or not. Harley will only go to school for 2 1/2 days then she is on winter break until January 5. I cannot believe the first semester of her junior year is over!
A final thought...
I wish you all a very Merry Christmas!!
