1. Happy Birthday to Lorah Ann Ropp Zeigler and Phoebe Elizabeth Goff Rice. Two mothers, birthdays on the same day, different years. Phoebe has been gone for about 48 years and Lorah gone for about 1 1/2 years.
2. North Carolina is very cold this December. I don't think it was this cold in the winter when we first moved here. Our dog is in the shed, shielded from the wind. Our bunnys' cage is covered with plastic. I unfroze Sophie's (the bunny) water bottle and she drank from it while I held it.
3. We visited with some friends down the road this evening. I am beginning to enjoy this stage of my life, getting together with people my own age.
