- egg nog for my coffee

- getting closer to being done my Christmas shopping

- ice cream (even though I am freezing most of the time)  lol

- laughter

- sweat pants (I wear them to sleep with my flannel night gowns & sweater)

- so ditto on the warm clothes Val - but since I always USED to be warm I have very little warm clothing so I just try to put on anything that will keep me warm - even G's sweat pants!  LOL

- Sandra's last quote - thanks!

Sandra - glad your leg is a bit better - it is a pain when difficult to walk - I have now learned that for the rest of my life - and you know how much I used to walk! 

Pat - never thought of eggnog in coffee - might try that -actually at night I wear summer pj's and all we have is a comforter and sheet on - not even down and I am sweating -

Suppose grateful right now for turlenecks - haven't warn since lived in Oregon and had a very cold house and only a wood stov that took hours to warm but trying to keep from getting really sick though believe this is viral.

In each waking day, you will find scores of blessings and opportunities for positive change. Do not let your TODAY be stolen by the unchangeable past or the indefinite future! Today is a new day!”

Glad you have time to listen to those - I usually don't unfortunately

Think I have finally fixed the other laptop - now to keep it that way!!!    My ex-son-in-law shared a paid anti-virus program he likes - used to work for the Geek Squad at Best Buy-- wish it luck!  Found a great program to uninstall all the little gremlins that get left behind!  Busy with hopeful last minute sales and getting ready for my daughter and kids - pray all are well.
