Post by: Sapphire on December 30, 2014, 11:20:31 am
Just wondering what you all have planned for New Year?
I have my Brother, his Wife and my friend, Sheila coming! I am going to do a buffet and lay it out on the table. I will take some pics for you all to see  :thumb:

I will be at work. I'm at work now. I'm just hoping for a quiet place like a tower where I don't have to get out in the weather or deal with anyone.  :okay:

I dont have any family to come by. I don't mind working  holidays. That gives folks with kids or out of town  family  a chance to take off to be with them. You folks I have met and care for on these forums are my family.  I spend more time visiting  with ya'll  than I ever do with my son or sister that's left.  :hugu: :grouphug: :loveuk:

It is cold down here in the great "hot"state of Texas. Our temps are in the Los 30sF but the wind chill is making it a breezy  +14F right now. I'm blessed that I am not working  in it tonight.  :handshappy: :bananarama:

We have stayed in as we have the last ten years or so. Watching TV, Graham Norton (chat show host) is on after the news, then Queen singing their hits, sadly without Freddie x

The BBC are showing firework displays in London and around the world I think, then that will be it. Will sort out my calendars for the New Year tomorrow. I have one with Jasper photos on it for every month  :woohoo:

Oh goodness Sondra. Hope you don't have to go to work tonight. You need the time off and get some rest.  :hugu:

Well I brought in the New Year 2015 up here in 1 tower all by myself in blissful peace.  :hugu: It is cold again this morning  but not as cold as yesterday morning.  Today the temps are staying in the low 20s with a chill of 16F instead of a -5F with 25 mph wind gusts of yesterdsy!  :Oh:

Took me an hour and half to drive home yesterday morning  due to the slick roads with a thin sheet of ice. The poor birds were not pleased with me cause I didn't have time to let them out. I had to feed them quickly just to get in bed by 9:30am and I was ack up for work by 1:45pm.  :faint: At least this morning  the wind is calm and very little snow or sleet has fallen. Will be slick again but looks like this bad boy front is on the way out~~Toodles I say to that!!  :lol1:
