Ramble On!

I'm finding myself a bit on the lonely side with my friend moving away. Even when I was doing homework she would call and take my mind off of it for a few. Now it's just me doing my work with no one giving me that break.

I almost have my major project done for my sign class and I have been working long and hard on that. It's a presentation board about Helen Keller. Once I'm finished I will try and get pictures to share with you on what it looks like. I must say I think it will be "A" material........LOL

We got our first snow fall a couple days ago, if you really want to call it that. Less than an inch, but just enough to make the side roads a bit slick.

I have gotten 3 books now from blog giveaways over at Alexis blog. I'm happy every time the UPS man pulls up in my driveway. I know it will be the next book I have won. So far I have won and received A Hint of Wicked, How to tame a modern Rouge, and Julie and Julia. I'm looking forward to getting my school work all done so I can read something besides a text book. Geesh!

In 32 days my son and I will be flying off to Portland for the holidays and we are very excited! I can't wait to see family and friends. Oh and those 2 grand babies I have never met yet. My son is taking his lap top so hopefully I will be able to sneak in a few times to see how everyone is doing and give you an update. I know we will be busy but I want to share our trip with you. I just might get to meet a blogger friend while I'm there too. I pray that it works out and we get to meet in person.

I've started thinking about winter comfort foods for dinners now. Share with me what your winter comfort food might be. I'm always looking for new idea's. But I must admit that a good pot of chili and cornbread works for me.

Well off to do more homework, but what's new!

Wow, I can't even imagine snow right now. Well, at least where I live. My kids would love it!

Have fun on your trips, and I hope you get to meet up with the blogger friend! That would be awesome!

As far as comfort food, I love beef stew, but now you have me craving for chili & cornbread!

Sorry about your friend moving Robyn. Chili and cornbread would be my first choice comfort food, but anything that goes with crispy buttermilk biscuits or fresh from the oven crusty bread, like soup, spaghetti or a pan of roasted mixed vegetables!

I hear you on missing a friend. It is so hard when they move away. Stacey@mccrakensx4 moved away from me. It was sad.
corn bread and chili sounds awesome.
