It's cold these days, and we don't think the pellet stove is going to keep us very warm this winter. I hope it does, but I don't think it will.
I'm reading a book of short stories by Stephen King "Everything's Eventual" It's actually very good so far. Not all of them are scary stories. The ones that are a little too much (a short story about the guy in the Dark Tower series- that I don't like) I just skip over. I really enjoy reading short stories. S.K. said in his introduction, that short stories are dying out, and that he writes so many each year just to keep it up. Apparently it's not as easy to write a short story as one would think. And everyone wants books. Not as many magazines left that publish short stories, etc.
So I buy books of short stories, great American short stories, short stories of all kinds, just to keep it alive. I do my part. :)
I'm feeling poetic this time of year. I think I will churn out a few poems here in the next few days. I will share if they are any good. I know I should write even when I don't feel like it, but I enjoy it more when I'm "in the mood" to write.
My friend from P.H. might read this, and if so "Hi Friend" You know who I'm talking to!! :)
I might get to switch computers with my husband, before he kills his. It just doesn't like him, or the other way around. Go figure that he wouldn't have any patients for computers. He has to think about it. Our friend he used to work with will help us switch out.
Okay, you all have a good weekend, and week. Stay warm and I hope it doesn't snow on you. I really hope that if it has to snow somewhere, it's on you and not me!!! I mean that with love. :)

This is a picture of my husband cutting tile in the back yard. He made a face mask by using clothes pins to hold a sock around his mouth and nose.
Just a picture of the stuff we put on our ledge in the living room. The red Fisher Price toy clock is mine.

We have gone out to eat, had sandwiches at the house, broke one pair of flip flops, started the tile work on the kitchen floor, napped on the couch a little, got lost in Springfield, went into some junk stores, and bought a diet Pepsi instead of a real one by mistake. This is the first full day. You have to remember that these things have been done by any of 7 people. For instance, I did the bad on the Pepsi. My eldest daughter broke the flip flop. My dad did the tile work. Ha, ha, ha, ha,ha. Not really. He did the nap work on the couch.
My parents need to get a cell phone. Visit momstheword blog to get the why on that.
The visit is going great. :)

Ok! See the kids.
And my husband.
But they have to see me if they want to see them!! Ha!
Anyhow, we will have the same plans that we always have.
1. Eat at the home-probably cold cuts and chips.
2. Eat a BBQ meal at home, burgers, brats, b.beans, p.salad, etc.
3. Go out somewhere to eat. This gets more expensive each year, but we only go out a couple times each visit.
4. Sit and look at each other while someone (no names mentioned because I don't want anyone to make fun of my dad) sleeps on the couch.
5. Sit and talk about what we can do.
6. Get begged to go to walmart by at least one child.
7. Maybe go to the dollar store.
8. And finally, remember all the cool things I wanted to do only when they are halfway home.
