I believe winter has arrived. When I left for work this morning, there was frost on my car and the thermometer read at a chilly 27 degrees!
I was off work yesterday waiting for the propane tank to be placed so we could have unlimited heat. Our rig only runs on propane heat, while it comes with 3 20 pound propane tanks, when the heat is constantly running, you go through those tanks pretty quick. For instance, we filled up 4 tanks on Saturday and Monday night we had run thru 2 of them and I woke up at 4 a.m. to freezing cold temp of 54 degrees. But now we are set for the winter! Yea!
I am also decorated for the holiday season. I have our stockings hung (on our electric fireplace) by the chimney with care (wink, wink). I have our little Christmas tree all set up and decorated. So I’m starting to feel more festive as time goes on. I know this doesn’t seem like much to some people but the last 2 or 3 years I’ve dreaded Christmas. I’ve had NO joy in the holiday season. This year I seem to have a little, which is better than the zero I’ve had in the last few years. I even bought Christmas cards this year. I quit doing that several years ago, because I made the effort several years in a row sending out at least 30 Christmas cards. Sadly I would only receive 1 or 2 cards if that in return, it literally broke my heart. So I quit sending them because I didn’t want to get my heart broken that no one cared enough to send me a card. But this year I’m sending them out with only the hope that I cause someone to feel warm and fuzzy. Trying so hard to not want one in return.
So regardless of all the Scrooges out there I’m determined to have a great holiday!
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
