I'm sitting up in bed - drinking coffee and reading the paper, which in itself is a little depressing with all of the recent killings. The weather, before last night, had been beautiful - sunny and warm. During the night the weather took a drastic turn and it has been raining since last night. At 10:30 AM it is still night outside the sky is so dark and the rain so heavy. There is a lot of thunder and a little lightning also. Dallas has a little snow forecast for this afternoon. We are too far southeast of Dallas to expect anything but more rain. Our daughter and son-in-law took our 5 year old grandson to England for Christmas with his other set of grand parents. Our son is in Sun Valley with his fiancé and her family. Carol Ann' sister and brother-in-law are in the same boat - all children and grand children celebrating Christmas out of town. They will come over to our house this evening for Christmas dinner. We don't use the front part of our house (too big) so it stays closed off all but a couple of days a year. Last Christmas we put our fake tree up in the living room. After Christmas we just unplugged the lights and closed the door. Today we will open the door and plug the lights back in. After dinner we will sit up there staring at it and probably drink a little too much wine in an attempt to have a merry Christmas. Perhaps I should take an extra dose of my antidepressant medication today! Bah, humbug!
Hope you all are having a very merry Christmas!
This is primarily a travel blog in which I write about traveling in our motorhome. Our travels have
- Robert & Carol Ann Martin
- Nacogdoches, TX, United States
- I began this blog as a vehicle for reporting on a 47-day trip made by my wife and me in our motorhome down to the Yucatan Peninsula and back. I continued writing about our post-Yucatan travels and gradually began including non-travel related topics. I often rant about things that piss me off, such as gun violence, fracking, healthcare, education, and anything else that pushes my button. I have a photography gallery on my Smugmug site (http://rbmartiniv.smugmug.com).
