91? You could share some of that warmth! We are lucky to hit 40 these days. And it's so damp! I'm tired of being cold! 

Work is going good. I learned the trick to pulling two carts of linen yesterday. It's not as hard as I thought it would be. Just don't ask me to stop them quick. It's not happening. Not even one at a time stops quick. I was told the tower carts weigh in at 750 pounds a piece when loaded. With that kind of weight, they don't stop quickly when we get rolling. Another reason to start so early in the morning. Very little foot traffic. The mid-shift run on Friday has more foot traffic making it more challenging and slower.

Our weather turned....Yesterday morning it was 5F! This morning we were at 27F, much better. Our highs as suppose to return to the 40s this week. We will see. I know this cold weather is killing my foot! 


Scott, would you like to replace another battery? The one in the Ford is dead... Take care of yourself! 


DH and the girls went Christmas shopping today. I am just about done. Just a few little items left. :) This is the earliest I've ever been this far!

I have Thanksgiving off. The trade off is I work Christmas. Well, the day before. We don't normally work weekends but, we will work Sunday instead of Christmas Monday. It sounds like only four hours. So, by the time most people are getting going for the day, I will have work done and behind me...lol


The weather has been in the upper 30's and low 40's this week. Cloudy, mist/rain, and windy. This weekend will bring a change. Colder... :(

No venison here.

Cold weather? We went from mid to upper 50s on Monday to 17 and windy on Tuesday. Windchills were in the single digits. Now there is enough white stuff to cover things and make it look cold. I think we were to get into the mid 20s today. 

I've been busy today getting Christmas cards done and getting Christmas presents made.
