Somehow we got rid of almost ALL our Christmas stuff
this summer when we donated them to charity. I could
use some of it now to decorate mom’s room up as it
is pretty dull in there. She wanted to come home by Christmas
but I think she knows that won’t happen now. She has a lot
of rehab therapy to go yet to help her.She insisted we NOT
bring anything to her there, but we snuck things in little by little.
Sis searched for a small fiber optic tree here in town.
There was only one left. Now it’s
my turn to try and find tiny ornaments that will actually fit on it.
I haven’t felt much like baking a lot this year..no time really.
If it is fast and easy I will think about it.
I made fudge, but haven’t decorated the house much at all.
Sis and I decided mom’s room will
be our decorated place this year…whether she likes it or not.
It really will be a strange kind of holiday this year, but I am thinking it
will be a white one for us here.
In the news here in town, the school board has closed one of our
beloved middle schools. It was built back in the 20’s for 800
children, but when it got down to 200 there, they just could not keep
it open financially any more. Now the 6th graders will be put back in with the grade
school kids and the 7th thru 9th will be included in the High School
I spent 3 memorable years in that building before going to the new
high school when they opened it. Coming from grade school to that
HUGE building, I got lost more times that I can count. Three floors
and so many rooms it was hard for a newbie to get used to. I sure hope
they can figure something out to use it for something else. It would be
a real shame to let it sit and deteriorate like so many other schools
here in town. Our town has gotten so small that we will only have
2 schools left. It is a sad thing.
WELL HOPE YOU ALL WILL HAVE A GREAT SATURDAY PLANNED..
STAY SAFE AND WARM AND HAPPY!!
