Tuesday, Laura, Ashley and Anna stopped by for a few hours. No special reason, they just wanted to spend some time with Jim and Linda and see me again. ; )
Then, yesterday, Laura and Lindsey stopped by for a little while. They were heading to the grocery store and just decided to make a slight detour here to the park.
Other than that, there hasn't been much going on here. Jim dumped my tanks, went up to the office and picked up the mail, Linda did some laundry, put away some wrapping paper, cleaned off the desk and read some of her newest book that she received for Christmas.
Tuesday evening they went to Wendy's for dinner and last night they just grabbed some stuff out of the fridge.
Jim and Linda talked to Mike, (who lives up in North Carolina) and Jeff, (who lives out in Oregon). They both seem to be doing well and had very nice Christmases.
The weather has been a big story around here. A cold front came through and now instead of lows in the 60's they're getting down into the low 40's. The highs have been almost 20 degrees cooler than they were also.
But, for New Years Day, they're forecasting highs back up into the upper 70's again. : )
Jim and Linda are getting low on a few items, so they'll probably be heading to the grocery store either today or tomorrow. Jim has a few "hardware" items that he needs to buy, so he may do that, but who knows. Linda also needs to get her prescriptions refilled soon, so I imagine some of the above stuff will get done today.
