Wow, it's already January 25Th..........not many days left in this month. Is it just me because I am getting older, but does time seem to be going faster?

It is cold out today.........high right now of 14ยบ but no wind so we don't have to worry about wind chills. And I keep telling myself with every day that passes 'we are one day closer to spring'. I think that is the only thing getting me through the rest of this winter. Although, one very big and good thing about this winter is that Amber is much closer to us and it is much less time consuming to get her for the weekend.......and a lot less stressful than driving on icy, snowy roads for such a long distance!

She spent this weekend with us. I picked her up Friday morning since she wasn't feeling well and didn't go to school. I'm sure it was just a cold and she is already feeling must be some of that TLC she always knows is available to her here......and good, warm comfort food that makes everyone feel better when they have a cold. Homemade chicken noodle soup, frozen apple juice to cool a sore throat, etc. Good ole' Mema knows all the tricks. Her mother makes her go to her room and stay in bed until she is feeling better. How much worse I would feel if I had to be isolated from everyone!!

I will have to return her back home later today, but for now, I will enjoy her visit and her hugs!

14 degrees! Wow! Homemade chicken noodle soup sounds yummy. Glad that Amber has been around more. I think you both do each other good. Hugs!

My mom always made us get up and get dressed...then she'd make a bed for us on the couch and give us lots of TLC.

I can taste the chicken noodles now....!

Hugs to you both!
