Better Day Today

While the day dawned very cold (we hit our high of 48 at 6:30am!!), it was much better than yesterday. Even though the winds were fierce, at least there was no rain to go with it all.

Since our Jubilee Pickers' Christmas get together wasn't starting until 10am, I took advantage of the extra hour and got a Curves workout in this morning. It was nice not having to rush out after it this morning. I was able to come home and get a couple of cups of coffee before I had to get ready to leave.

We gathered just next door to the park at Kathy's home, er, ranch. Well, it's a mini-ranch, but it's definitely cowboy/girl territory. Kathy loves horses and her home reflects that. However, the thing you notice even more when you walk into Kathy's home is the peace that pervades it. Kathy is a peaceful person - her countenance, her way of speaking and carrying herself. It is a calming experience to be around her and her home is an extension of that.

Needless to say, we had a great time of playing and singing. Most of our songs were Christmas songs. After a couple hours of playing, we had a potluck dinner. Randy came over for that. I was really glad he did because I so enjoy these folks and I want him to get to know them, too. Plus, I just like having him around! :)

Once home, we got comfy in warm clothes and relaxed for the rest of the day. I finished another cross stitch project this evening! I decided since this one went so quickly I'll do one more. Yeah, a glutton for punishment! But, I do enjoy it.

Nothing on the calendar for tomorrow, but you never know what may come up! Until the next time . . .


  1. Sounds a little chilly in Alabama. Glad you had a great Christmas get together.

    Don't count on a do nothing day until it has come and gone. LOL

    Are you counting the days until your trip?
