baby its cold outside!

BRRRRR!!!! what a nasty day outside! I'm so glad I left work early yesterday to go finish up my shopping! Then I left work early again today! Its really a very nasty day.. no one should be outside doing anything! I came home, ran the vacuum, cleaned up and puttered around a bit.. made bread in the bread machine, made homemade meatballs and spagetti for supper.. and now here I am!
Its been very quiet out in computer land.. my yahoo mail box has been pretty much empty all afternoon! Theres been a few things, but not much! Also.. whats up with blogger? I wanted to go visit new postings of my bloglist, but it is not working correctly! Hope that is fixed soon!
Heres some pictures out my kitchen window... brrrr.. cold!
So... yay!! thank GOd for the weekend! As soon as I'm done here I have to finish up an order of memory star santas that needs to be delivered tomorrow morning.. (yeah, well, I doubt I'll be getting out of my drive way very early.. I'm pretty much plowed in!!)
Tomorrow my plan is to bake!!! sugar cookie cut outs, gingerbread cutouts, peanut butter kisses, jam thumbprints and dogturds.. (yes, I did say dogturds.. ) Really they are coconut date balls, I dont eat them.. yukko on the dates!! but my husband loves them.. so I always make them for him. Thats it for the cookies.. and thats more then I'll feel like doing. I'll have to get up really early and get going on them, thats my favorite time of day to bake!
maybe I'll take pictures of all the cookies... isnt it crazy the things we blogger girls take pictures of? "Oh us silly ol girls!!!" (thats a "ol".. not an old.. because we arent old !!!)
I need to hang up all of our christmas cards.. they are just stacked on the table and they keep falling off .. thats cause Jasper keeps jumping where he shouldnt be and knocking them down!!!
ok.. I'm going to see if Im able to go blog hopping yet! Have a sweet weekend!!!
have I told you all how glad I am that you all come to visit me? and that I'm even happier when you leave me you sweet comments? You alway make my day! thank you!!!

I'm trying to read your blog right now and not much is showing up. Hope blogger gets it fixed soon. I'll check back later to see if the pics show up.

It was muggy and very warm here in east Texas today, bummer. I'd give anything for a white Christmas. I'm so jealous of your beautiful snow!
And very happy for you to be a new friend to a newbie in blogland! Merry Christmas!

I will also send out confirmation e-mails later for the swap, so that will be your reminder. Thanks for joining!
