Friday we put Summer down for her morning nap while Dawn and I packed the car to visit her parents for the Christmas weekend. When Summer woke up she found out that Santa made an early stop by the house. Good thing we let him know that we were going away for a couple days. Summer got a few books and each book was read cover to cover before opening the next present. It was a great afternoon with the three of us.
Christmas Eve morning I had a little bit of a sore throat and no cough drops so I went for a four mile run in the drizzle and ice to pick up some Fisherman's Friend lozenges. I LOVE them! I found a GREAT deal on a Garmin running watch a few weeks ago, so Dawn gave that to me for Christmas. It was very freeing to run without a phone tracking how far I ran.
We did a lot of relaxing on Christmas Eve and went to the later mass since the Browns were winning.
I went for a 2.5 mile Christmas morning... since it was the 25th of the month. There was a LITTLE bit of snow still in Strongsville. Not too bad on the sidewalks, but just a few spots of ice. It was a great holiday season with lots of family. As I get older, family time at the holidays means more and more. I've
been blessed to see so much family the last few weeks and more next
weekend with a cousin's wedding. For all my extended family of "friends"
on here, I hope you all had a great holiday and cherished the
unpurchased gifts of love this holiday.
Columbus is warmer than about 75% of the country right now! Big changes coming soon though...
A windy & warm start to the final Monday of 2016. The record high for today is 62... so we may break that pretty easily. The 7AM temp is 54 already! Cloudy skies
today with rain likely this evening with even a few rumbles of thunder.
Best chance of rain will be between 6PM and midnight. Temps falling fast
tonight with cooler weather for Tuesday and Wednesday with the skies
giving way to some sunshine. A few rounds of wintry mix on the way for
the end of the week and next weekend. Have a good one!
