The week from you know where

As sit here typing I feel very lucky I donot work week-ends.
The snow is up to my oh you know that special spot you sit on, the snow is still coming down not so hard now but still falling with very high winds.
On wednesday while I was working at home (sometimes I can work from home, I am a jackie of all trades) we had a brown out if you have never had one of these it is awful, the lights dim to about half power the computer shuts down and all else seems to come to a halt.
The worst thing that happened was our hottub went on the fritz because of the brown out.
We have a ceremic heater under the frame inside keeping the pipes from freezing, we have two blankets and a tank heater in the water to keep the water from freezing.
We cannot get a service tech out till monday, I miss my hottub nights with my sweety.
I did manage to put up our tree and some other decorating was done, I will finish decorating outside on monday or tuesday.
We did get stuck in the snow out in the driveway we had two feet of snow we wanted to go to church tonight because the temps will be below zero tomorrow. In church I ushered and counted only 58 people including Father Victor our pastor.
I think when they built St. Ignatius Church back in the 18oos they had more people at mass then we did tonight.
I did get some stitching done this week, I will finish them tomorrow and will post pictures
Oh and we had to replace our printer and
that also turned into a mess, first we ordered a Brother printer fax scanner from Officemax and had to return that because it was black ink only and no way to post pictures you see you can only post if you have a port to put the disc in, this printer did not have one so off to Office Max to return the Brother printer.
Now we have bought a Hp Officejet Pro but this machine has problems so yesterday off to Office Max we go again this was a return and the Office Max people did not even check to see if the thing worked before putting it back on the shelf so we came home with a new HP Officejet and finally today this machine is working what a great machine I love this thing, I am now happy in the office, but still sad about the hot tub.
Now I want to show you pictures of some of my ornaments I did the last 10 years or so, my tree is 85% stitched ornaments.I stitched four ornaments this week and hope to put them on the tree tomorrow.Merry Christmas Catherine
