Joe's reaction was much like mine as the day progressed and there was no electricity. The Houston area endured high winds last night and today resulting in numerous power outages. So no Christmas dinner at home this year, Dad and I went out to eat but we made sure to bring home doggy bags.
I took my Father and my babies on a road trip to the hills of Arkansas last week. It really kicks my butt. I have a newly discovered respect for people traveling with children.
We left here in rain and it rained for over half the trip. I had to keep telling myself that the area needs rain bad. During the week, the weather was mild and then turned frigid within 12 hours with wind gusts over 45 mph. There was a bit of flying snow but it had been too warm to amount to anything on the ground. Joe was glad to be at his home and have the run of a huge yard. My girls loved the cooler temps. Lucy struggled with all the stairs. Her arthritis is quite evident in these cases. We had a gorgeous day for travel back to Texas yesterday. It's good to be back and have the trip behind us.
It seems like the holidays are over for us now.
It finally turned a bit cooler here this week. I had been wanting to have a fire in my cheap little pit from Lowes that I've only used 3 times in as many years;so tonight I got home from work early enough to get it started. I would welcome many more weeks like this one this winter. I know the pooches would be equally happy too.
