Merry Christmas!



Hi, I hope that you are having a wonderful holiday season.

We have been busy, as usual.  Last week, I changed classrooms at work and will now be teaching the 3's/4's class (with occasional after school kids thrown into the mix).  I have been moving furniture and reorganizing, while still trying to keep the kids constructively busy.  I am very happy about the change, and look forward to getting down to some teaching of the ABC's and 123's, science, and art, as well as how to get along well with others part of life.

Last Friday, we traveled the two hours to Eugene for an early Christmas Eve with my side of the family; returning the next day.  It was so much fun, and I am always grateful for the big hit of love that I return home with.

Last night, we spent Christmas Eve over at Cary's Mom's home and are going back over there today.  It is always nice to spend time with the folks who live near us too, and to observe as the kids grow up into such neat people.

I hope that you are all well and happy, and I will be around to visit you soon.

Hugs,

Kathy M.

Two Super Storms Headed Toward the U.K.:



Severe weather both worries and fascinates me.  Sometimes folks don't even realize that bad storms are heading their way.  I forward weather posts on FB and drive my friends crazy, but I wanted to make sure that my friends in the U.K. are aware of this one.  Here is the link to the story:  http://www.theweatherspace.com/2013/12/22/strongest-jet-stream-ever-recorded-to-bring-two-super-storms-to-united-kingdom-region-this-week-with-possible-tornadoes-in-ireland/

Batten down the hatches, and stay safe!

Hugs,

The Sky Was Very Pretty This Morning:













I have a bunch of stuff to post, but for now I just wanted to show you these pictures.  The lighting was so cool this morning that I just had to go out and take them. 

Hope that you guys are having a great day and that you enjoy your Christmas!

The Cold Snap Continues ...


Now this is cold: -30*.  At 7:30 this morning, I looked at our old metal and glass thermometer and it said -30*.  I thought, oh, this thing must be wrong, and grabbed my car keys to go outside and see what my mirror said.  My poor car didn't want to start, but it did.  Good car, thank you.   The two matched up!

The severe weather alerts are cautioning about frostbite for exposed skin, and hypothermia, if you are not properly dressed for the weather.  I hope that all the homeless were able to find shelter, and that people are taking proper care of their animals.

I took these pictures of our yard yesterday afternoon.  It was so beautiful out:
