These candles are the extent of my holiday decorations... and even they are half gone now. Headless mother and father Christmas.
Today was a breather day as far as the weather goes. Although our weather is no where near as bad as the rest of the country, its still cold today, but it almost got to 30 degrees and the sun was out and melted a lot of the ice-snow mix. One of the weather guys was stressing that if we needed any supplies from the store we had better get in there today. A big bunch of snow (a technical weather term) is expected tomorrow morning. Twice as much as we just got... or maybe three times as much. By Sunday we should warm up a bit.
I got Candace to come over and replace the battery in the smoke alarm. It went off last night just after midnight and again at 2:30am. I was afraid if I didn't get it changed out today, by Friday it might be going off contineously. (If I was a neighbor and had to listen to it, I'd be really ticked off.) I couldn't reach the ceiling, even standing on the top step of the ladder (a large step stool with three steps), which I found quite handy as an excuse to get my daughter to deal with it.
This not-being-able-to-get-out-safely is playing havoc with Christmas shopping.
