An evening post

Spooky sky - a storm is moving in for the next few days - 

I'm looking forward to it. 

And that will mean rain in the valley and snow in the mountains. The Mt Shasta Ski resort is opening in a few days. It's been a long time since that happened. 

We won't go up there until after the New Year. 

I wanted to show you all the cutest T-shirt I bought for Navy - 

I am officially done with my shopping - now I'm just waiting for them to be delivered. I had to tell my husband about one of his gifts - because it was big and will be heavy and I have no place to hide it. But I did tell him, he can only help me with the box - so I can wrap it. 

I bought him an electric lawn mower. Our gas mower bit the dust and he's been using the old push mower. We have eliminated more than half of our lawn area in the last 2 years and will again this Spring, take out a bit more grass.  Meanwhile, I thought I would treat him. It's small and will be just right for our smaller lawn areas. 

I enjoyed the day by washing my bed sheets - doing laundry and using the rest of those green tomatoes for a marinara sauce that was slow-cooked all day.  I froze 2 containers and kept one in the refrigerator. Trying to finish up with the decorating in some spots. Spray painted something I may or may not use...All in all, it was a beautiful sunny day. 

 Well, it's time for me to get my jammies on - I usually don't post this late at night - my husband was on call and he agreed to take it. He won't work past 10-15 hours a week. This will be it for him. 

Good Nite...


  1. Dearest Debby,
    No doubt you are sound asleep—especially during such type of weather!
    LOVE your t–shirt for Navy, what a find.
    You have been busy and got some nice things coming towards you for the gift giving.
    Big hugs,

  2. I hope the storm is not too bad. The moisture will be nice though I bet. Love the t-shirt.

    God bless.

  3. The sky looks more like a Halloween sky. :)
    We are done shopping too, though we don't do much at all!!

  4. Nice to have some moisture. The t-shirt is very nice!
    I've an electric mower and I like it a lot. No fiddling with gas motors and spark plugs and oil and the like. Plug it in and it goes.
    Have a great weekend!

  5. Nice sky shot! I hope the storm wasn't too bad.
    I love the shirt!
    The new mower will be a hit.

  6. I love the picture of the night sky. I think it is beautiful. I hope the weather was not severe but pleasant. How wonderful that you have completed your shopping! I haven't even begun. I am a procrastinator when it comes to shopping and I have a difficult time with it every year. I always vow to do better but it never happens. You are an inspiration to me! The lawn mower sounds like a wonderful idea! And the t-shirt is really cute. Enjoy your Christmas season days. Blessings to you and yours.

  7. Gosh you must be a great skier. I love that T-shirt!

  8. It is snowing as I write this looking out my window, and supposed to snow through the weekend. What a nice gift you got for your husband for Christmas. I'm glad to hear you enjoyed the first part of your day washing sheets. Great attitude, as that's one of my least favorite things to do. ; )

    Have a cozy weekend, Debby.


  9. Love the t-shirt! The picture of the sky is beautiful!
