Summing it Up...

Now, that I'm way on the wrong side of sixty, I feel that being true to self is important. "I yam, what I yam." Kindness and smiles are to be given away. Women are strong. Men are more vulnerable than we believe. Husbands may come and go...but one thing I know for sure is that I will NEVAH live without a corgi or coffee in my life if I can prevent it. Come piles of dog fur or hot water!

Blustery day...

Jim's stuck at a truckstop outside of Grand Rapids, waiting out the storm. I'm entertaining myself by making up this ridiculous photo of him, altering his good looks to an early 60's scary guy...Jim, I'm thinking of you! Classy Chassy should go over there with a nice batch of warm cookies, as she lives near that area...hint, hint!

It's so blustery outside...I lost some of my Christmas decor off the front porch last night. It's probably miles away! The rooftops and ground are nearly white, making it more seasonal. The birdfeeders are swinging and shaking. One little wet sparrow has his back to the wind and is hanging on, finding some protection. There is chicken and veggies in the oven, and carols on the radio. Earlier, I mailed a big box of Christmas off to North Carolina. Lil' Emmy has some Santa surprises coming~



This weather makes you want to burrow in, hunker down, bake something, and light candles. Poor Jim, has a bad chest cold and is waiting it out in the back of a semi tractor cab...not nearly as comfortable and cozy as the corgi kids and I are.
Maybe some chocolate will help shake some of this guilt off...what do you think?

If I knew where he was, I'd gladly bring him some goodies! Fresh baked Corgi-shaped Sugar Cookies and hot cocoa...mmmmmm! Tell him to get off at the Cedar Springs exit, and I will pick him up at a parking lot near by - he can have venison chili and spend the night eating popcorn with Mr. Wonderful and the Corgis!!!

Ah, the life of an over-the-road trucker! AT least they know where all the places to eat are, huh?

Angela said...

Yes, you should have some chocolate! I just seen ClassyChassy's post with all of the snow in her yard. No wonder your husband is stuck in all of that. Hope he stays warm!

We were flooded in this morning and couldn't get out so the kids didn't go to school and my husband didn't make it to work. Then our electric went off for a few hours but we have a generator so we were fine. I'm just glad that it did come back on because it is supposed to get into the teens tonight. Brrrrr!

That is bad news about Jim being sick and on the road. Just no good. That poor thing. Truckers anywhere but the far southwest have a hell of a time. I hope the weather lets up and he can get home soon.

Your photo is so funny! I have to wonder, what "look" will sum up the 2000's?

Sounds like you had BAD wind there...

Sarah said...

Hope your DH stays warm and gets over that cold. Sounds like he is the one that needs the hot chocolate!

Your photo alteration is so funny! I can only imagine what your husband will say...hmm...what will he say! I hope he feels better soon and gets back home in a healthy happy way! Hugs to you both! Coralie

Jan Mader said...

I have Tango's warmest blanket on...we've got the wind and cold but not the snow! Stay warm.....

I didn't spell right in my last comment either. 'President'.

Hey cute picture of Jim there. At least your missing him - that's good. It looks cold and snowy in Michigan. I hope he got home safe and that his chest cold gets better.

Buttercup said...

Hope Jim is feeling much better. Thanks to him and his colleagues for keeping us all fed. I try to say a little prayer for the truckers in NYC. It's so tough getting through the traffice and without them it would be a disaster for all of us living on this island.

My hubby drove truck for 32 years and I know how you feel. Sometimes it's quite worrisome when they are sick and stuck "out there" in nasty weather. I will be praying for him, and for peace for you, too!

Your photoshopped pic looks a lot like one of our classmates... LOL

Chatty Crone said...

I love the little picture of Emmy on your blog cooking cookies. I know you'll miss her this Christmas. Wish you could see her. When will you see her next?
