I think this was the coldest morning so far but still pretty mild for the middle of December.
The thermometer in the van on our way to school at 8:00.
When I turned the news on during lunch I heard the dreadful news of another mass shooting spree. This one sadly was in an elementary school in Connecticut. Unbelievably a masked gunman who turned out to be the 24 year old son of one of the teachers walked in and killed 26 people, 20 children. This is so sad and makes me wonder what the world we live in is coming to.
After lunch I iced 6 caramel cakes and went downstairs to package all the last harvest of herbs I've had drying.
Still not feeling quite up to par this afternoon I decided to rest on the couch in the quite house with just me,Bernie and Dolly. It was really nice to listen to the silence and silently pray for the folks in Connecticut who lost their precious children in this mornings senseless shooting spree.
After evening chores I iced more caramel and coconut cakes while listening to daughter's teams basketball game on the radio. Her team won so she will be happy.
I am still in disbelief tonight of the school shooting each time I listen to the news I get chills just thinking about all those families who are burying their children instead of celebrating Christmas with them this year. God help them and be with them in this unimaginable grief.
A sad Good Night and sincere wish that God will Bless these folks with comfort.
