    hi all well good to see everyone today and happy late b day carol glad you got out sandra and had a good time 😊 well the snow came down and down and down lol did much damage to power lines and trees and at the onset 59 thousand people in omaha were with 0ut power I think the number now has decreased from repairs and crews working non stop to like 56 hundred now still out took out a lot of trees as the snow was wet and heavy and the trees are still or were still leaf laden all that from 3 or 4 inches of snow is not a good omen for the coming winter season for us huh 😟 our lines here are underground so unless something fouls up thsubstation like a lightning strike, out a mile away we dont usually worry about power outages on the norm snow is melting away now and i can see my flower heads again they were all capped with white yesterday lol what a diff a day makes here in ne. huh lol sun is out things are dripping and melting streets never really got slick just wet and all is right in the world again!! sigh😎 i had handy get out his winter shirts this am to see if they were ok for this season he eliminated two saying they were too heavy, hated them blah blah blah, lol still had tags on them but made of heavier almost thick material anyway said he would never wear them 😝so they will go off to sal army next pick up out i might have those christmas scene mugs wrapped up and ready to go by then too lol just was waiting for a box.. too heavy to mail or i would put them on ebay or something lol we have used them exactly once in this house back when i could have a root beer float, lol and daughter said she wouldn't use them either so off they go she might take the stem ware though we'll see lol i also have a box of jar candles for her as she uses them at home and at work and i had few sitting around i just keep a couple, and actually lit one for the first snow yesterday it smelled so good lol 😍 has three aromas in diff layers and the first layer sure smells good lol i always got candles from friends and co workers so that is why i have some to spare 😉 well i guess tomorrows job is to wash and then pack up some mugs and shirts lol and get it ready for pick up in a couple of weeks that will free two shelves in my "glassware cupboard lol yay 😉 well all i guess i got nothin else for now so ill see ya all a bit later take care all ok 🌼
