Scarping ice of the windshield early to get g-son to school this morning I thought how glad I will be for the coming days of above freezing temperatures at night.
After dropping him off I ran to Ingles for some Boars Head sandwich meat before coming home to do the chores in the cold morning.
After breakfast I started a load of laundry before doing my exercise tape. Sis-in-law called and said the bank where her sis-in-law is getting the loan to buy hubbie's parents old house needed some more info and our estate handler at the lawyers office is out with the flu. I called the lawyer who is a friend of mine and he is going to get the info to the bank.
It is slow to warm up on this cloudy morning so I didn't go outside for a walk today as I have a lot of housework to do today and need to get started.
I got everything cleaned dusted and re-arranged before I went after g-son. The sunroom January table is dressed in snowflakes and pinecones.

D-in-love gave me this set of placemats for Christmas and they fit in perfectly with the snowman theme I imagined for January on the main dining table.
These bottles were an after Christmas sale purchase from a store uptown.
I saw them when daughter and I went shopping before Christmas and I loved them but couldn't afford them, but at 50% off after Christmas they were mine.  Although Faith,Hope and Love are 3 of the advent celebrations these vases aren't really to Christmas-y decorated so they will be used at other times at my house because these three words should be used all year.
After chores tonight hubbie and I relaxed for the evening. We watched a Duke/Clemson b-ball game on TV which Duke ran away with.
The sun finally broke through late this afternoon and the temperature hit 50 for a high,tonight's low is predicted to be in the upper 30's so yea, no frosty windows in the morning.
God is good all the time,all the time God is good !
Good Night and God Bless.
