BRRR is all I can say about our weather here. I live in Southern California so I expect it to be warm all the time, but not this week. BRRRR there goes the gas bill.

So yesterday Amber ended up with three bottles of pill's. I wrote the street name on all the bottles, so she would know what she had. Then I started reading all the side effects. Amber took her pills and placed then on the counter. She said "the side effects are worse then what I have!" Oh yes my dear.

This morning woke up a few minutes before the alarm clock went off. The alarm finally went off and Rusty beat the clock up trying to turn it off. I said "Well good morning sexiest man alive".
Rusty just grunted and went to the bathroom. He came back and crawled into my half of the bed. He put his arms around me and said "You really should put your glasses on."
Then both of the dogs jumped in bed with us.
I asked Rusty if need me to wash an of his cold weather stuff since he will be outside working all next week.
Rusty said "I was watching the weather channel last night and they said that we are getting snow as low as 1000 feet."
I said "So it will be snowing in 29 palm while you are there?"
Rusty replied "Yes, and we need to move, I hate snow"
I quickly said "well I can pack a bag, lets move back to Hawaii"
Rusty just glared at me. He loved Hawaii while we were there, but he said that there are way to many people there.

It looks like I might be heading out to Palm Springs on Friday. There is a very young marine we know who is getting stationed at 29 palms and he will be flying in. This poor kid does not have a clue about the marine corp yet.

Today I am going to go deliver all my quilts. I have 4 going to the Wounded warrior center and 10 going to the animal shelter. Man I have been busier then I thought. But there is no rest for the wicked. I did go buy some blue material and I will get another quilt done before Christmas. It is going to simple squares, but it will be a quilt and it will get done.

While I am down at base I am going to look for some more last minute gifts. I still need to find one or two small things for Ryan, and I have not bought Rusty anything yet. Why are guy's so hard to shop for?

Well, I have a few things to get done before I head out for the day.

Thanks for visiting and comments. Yes, you should be able to grow Holly in S.Calif. It's a shrub and very hardy. You have to buy two (male & female). I will be writing more about it in spring (a good time to plant). You can subscribe to my feed in Google Reader. Send me an e-mail and thanks.

Good luck on the shopping. Our weather has been up and down like 20s one day and the next 61 what the heck and I wonder why I'm getting sick. I know those who receive your quilts will be so happy. They are lovely.
Take care and stay warm, Chrissie

it is cold!! but it is supposed to be warm tomorrow so just soak it all in!!

Palm Springs sounds nice! that is kind of you to be there for that new marine!

good for you with all those quilts you made; you know they will be put to good use

so when it was all said and done, what was up with Amber that she needed so much meds? Mr. Cadillac was on antibiotics last week for swollen lymph nodes in his neck and a bad cold; tis the season

enjoy the day ahead

I am just wondering if all active Marine families are so close knit and caring as you are. Are you the 'exception to the rule?' What a fine, selfless, gentle, hardworking lady you are!!
My wife goes in the hospital for a 2 days and nights study procedure this evening.
God Bless You!

I am having a hard time finding the extra gifts for Dirk after I've bought the big gift. Nothing right now is speaking to me. I am so sorry about Amber having three meds right now with all those side affects too. Yuck! That is so precious about Rusty coming in and getting in on your side of the bed. You know you could write romance novels if you didn't love sewing more than writing. Every morning my hubby wakes me up with GOOD MORNING BEAUTIFUL. I think with every year his eyes are just getting bad. May he forever stay delusional. AHHH!
