With the holidays always comes more times of going to Christmas parties and getting together with friends. This past week myself and three friends went to TN to a B&B and ate lunch. Below is a picture of us. We were at Grey Gables in Rugby, TN. It's a lovely place that I stayed at once before. It was decorated lovely for the holidays and we had a delicous meal and a fun trip. It rained all the way there and back but the company I was with are quite the comedians and I was laughing so hard at them that my jaws were hurting!
Here are just a couple of the decorations that I thought were adorable!
We have been getting lots of rain but today it has turned MUCH colder and very windy. Tonight is going down to 9. I guess I'll get out another quilt!

Snow, Ice, and Everything Nice!
I was watching the weather and saw that New Orleans had snow! Now that must be exciting to get snow in places where you hardly ever get any. Like an early Christmas gift! Right now we have the ground covered with the white stuff, with a layer of ice underneath. I'm glad I don't have to be out on the roads tonight or in the morning.
I love the clothes that have no tags on the inside of the neck. They just have the writing on the clothes themselves. T-shirts are like that a lot. Not so much on other clothes. Oh, my underwear is like that too. Hanes. Sometimes the tags on the neck can tickle or poke you and are annoying, so not having them there is nice. What do you think?
I normally hate commercials and hit the mute button until the commercial is over. I do like the singer who does the commercial for Free Credit Report Dot Com. His name is Eric Violette and on his resume page it says he is an actor. I like his singing and don't mind those commercials at all. There's two or three different ones and I like them all just because of his singing!
Today was rainy and nasty. About 7 p.m. or so the rain changed to sleet and then to snow. I made a big pot of beef vegetable soup and made oatmeal cookies. All good too! Love that comfort food on these rainy chilly days.

Parts of My Week and Sunday Sign
Thursday night I went to a dinner here in town. It was actually a recognition/awards night for the volunteers at our hospital. I'm not an official volunteer but I have helped out some, so I was invited. It was all so lovely. The tables were all so elegant and pretty! Beautiful tablecloths and centerpieces with lovely cloth napkins. It was high class all the way! I didn't get a picture of the tables, but here's a picture of part of the dessert area complete with a chocolate fountain.

Goldenrod is the State flower for KY. The golden plumes of this wildflower line Kentucky's roadsides in the fall. Native to all of Kentucky, 30 of nearly 100 species of this herb are found here. They are all perennials with large clusters of small yellow flowers that appear from the end of summer until frost. The leaves of goldenrods are simple, lance or egg shaped and usually have a toothed margin. Most species propagate by a spreading root system in addition to seed. In the fall they are often blamed by allergy sufferers for their allergies, but the real culprit is ragweed, which blooms at the same time. Insects love the goldenrod!
This plant grows over most of North America and is usually seen in pastures and growing beside the roadways. It is also the state flower of Nebraska.
