We made it to the store, got our shopping done and back home within 2 hrs. Then Nick decided he needed to mail a package so we got back out and headed to the post office about 4 miles away. Well this trip was a little more challenging. The wind was still blowing and it was now snowing. Drifts were starting to form on the roads and cars were getting stuck.
Once home, we found that our cable/internet was not working. Called the company and said they were experiencing an outage in our area and were working on it. Brrrrr...dedicated technicians. Nick and Jeff watched a DVD. I went to the sewing room. This was the view out of the window in front of my sewing machine.
I checked the cable around 10pm and it was back on so decided to post.
I did some baking again yesterday (Wednesday). Nick wanted to send some cookies to a friend in New York City. Made Mexican wedding cakes, chocolate pecan fudge, spritz cookies and snickerdoodles. Ashlee made some peanut butter fudge also. Never had any before and it sure was good.
Well, the wind is still blowing and it is cold, cold. The heater is working ovetime. We have snowdrifts all around the house. I stepped out the back door and took a picture on the south side of the garage. Impressive for Oklahoma. The other picture was from this afternoon when we got home from the post office.
Well, it is now Christmas day in Oklahoma. Hope everyone has a beautiful Christmas day. I know here in Oklahoma a lot of people did not make it to their destinations for Christmas because of the weather. Today is supposed to be clear, just very, very cold. Hope those that can will be able to have Christmas with their loved ones. Stay warm and safe.
Christmas blessings to all.....patijane
