Since Emily is not here to open presents, Mike and I decided to go for a walk in the snow. I wish I had taken my yard stick with me to see how high some of the drifts were. The south and east sides of the house were some of the deepest areas.Someone had been walking in the snow before we got there. Maybe a bunny?
The snow collected on some of the cedar tree branches. The snow and high winds broke off the top of one of our small trees in the front yard.It was so so cold outside this morning. I think the TV news guys said the wind chill was something like 7 degrees. So we did not stay outside for long.
We came inside and warmed up. Not much we can do until Emily gets home so I thought I would write a long, long blog post to take up some time. Ha!This is really not how Christmas was supposed to be. Mike and I had it all planned out. We have some nice surprises for Emily and cannot wait until she opens her presents. Christmas morning without our child is just not right.Yesterday was the same way. It was hard just watching the snow and not knowing how we would be able to get Emily home. I spent most of my day keeping busy – cooking, cleaning, wrapping gifts, and making Christmas cookies.I swore I was not going to make all those cookies by myself, but what else did I have to do? I could not find my Christmas cookie cutters so I made all the cookies round. The decorating was all me. Isn’t it lovely?
I think our Christmas dinner with the family is going to be postponed so I don’t know what we’ll have for Christmas lunch. Probably sandwiches, devilled eggs and sweets. I don’t think I have anything more gourmet than that.I can’t wait until Emily gets home.Merry Christmas everybody! JESUS is the reason for the season.
