This afternoon we're working together to breakup the ice in our driveway and getting ready for another winter blast later on in the week.
The main roads are clear but many people are still trapped in their homes because of ice covered driveways, and there are still many side roads that haven't even been touched by snow plows yet. We're getting a little break in the weather this week with temperatures barely above freezing and tomorrow it's expected to rain making already icy roads and driveways much icier.
I've been baking and freezing what can be frozen for Christmas day when all the kids, grandchildren and great-grandchildren will be here. Today I should have all the Christmas cookies finished and tomorrow I will start on candy making. I make two kinds of fudge, peanut-butter and chocolate, and Jimmy will make his old fashioned fudge, then it will be time to go shopping for our food for Christmas day. I will be making a couple main dishes from scratch, and lots of little tidbits to eat and snack on throughout the day. I can't wait to see everyone again. It's always nice having the kids drop in and out all day long on Christmas day and I'm really looking forward to it. Christmas is my favorite holiday of the year and I hope that I have time to make everything that I want to make. Merry Christmas Everyone.
