cold,dreary,days..not so much.. well not the dreary part at least
Today was one of those days where you just don't want to get out from under the security and warmth of your blankets and do nothing all day long. But alas, there are things that must be done. Our family had to go to the grocery store this evening as we were low on sustenance for the week. we are gonna have a rough week this week. My husband has a job but they are shutting the plant down for a week for Thanksgiving, without pay. This seems so unjust to me. They are doing this the week of Christmas as well, possibly the week after Christmas too. How are their employees supposed to make it?? I myself am not able to work, and I am in the process of applying for SSI. This makes it even harder. If i could find work doing something from home that I know would pay at least minimum wage and that physically I can handle, I would do it. On a much happier note; I am seriously looking forward to the Holidays with my family. I can't wait. i honestly love the weeks before Christmas and watching all of those Christmas movies on TV. During those weeks especially on the weekend.. we love to make big pots of soup, chili, or beef stew. With biscuits, or big loaves of chewy baguette bread. Then a hearty dessert like Apple walnut crisp, and curl up on the couch with some hot tea, or cocoa and watching a marathon of Christmas movies. We LOVE IT! I look forward to sharing some of these wonderful times with you, and would love to hear from anyone out there in blogger land who has stories to share of Holiday/ winter weather bliss!!
