Sunday service was well attended eventhough the weather was very treacherous. The winds were howling through our town with gusts over 50 mph. The wet roads turned icy and the cold air was back with a vengeance. The chimes played well and we were happy to have a friend of Mary's worship with us. After church, Sarah, Grandma and I made Chocolate Mint Surprise cookies and then made over 75 korean potstickers. We all enjoyed our Korean meal. Bulkoogi and Rice with Yakimondue (the triangle things).
Monday was going to the mall day. We left in the afternoon and got everything accomplished except for finding a furniture store. More on that later. Luckily we found a Red Robin and enjoyed our delicious burgers and bottomless baskets of fries. Matthew won a large white teddy bear from the claw machine. We came home with lots of great things. I especially was happy to get a M*A*S*H* DVD and the book "Multiple Blessings". We were looking for a Wii, but they are no where to be found. It is probably for the best.
Today I had my doctor appointment and received a good report. That in itself makes me feel better. Great to know things are healing as expected. Now to the furniture store. We have been meaning to get a new sofa to replace an old futon that is in our den. It is being sentenced to the basement. We found a sleeper sofa that will match our rocker and is comfortable. It will be delivered on Tuesday of next week. We don't need any new furniture delivered while my mom is here. She has a very bad allergy to formaldehyde. Hopefully, by her next visit it will be all "aired" out. Mary has her friends over for the night and we had a pizza dinner. Wal-Mart was our next adventure. Snow began to fall as we left. We spent over a hour shopping for food, meds and a few household items. Matthew has been saving up for an iPod and finally purchased an iPod Touch. He is very happy with it. Coming out of Wal-Mart we found an inch of snow on the ground and now have at least 3 inches.
Tomorrow I hope to get some sewing done, play scrabble and get ready for new years. Mary will be at a friends and we will have a few friends over. I suppose we will bake a few more cookies to replace the ones we ate.
Guess I don't have to tell you we are ready for bed.
