Christmas Gnomes

 

Good, good morning!

The weather has been a tad crazy here. We have
had freezing rain several times this winter season.
Wednesday was no exception...the roads were
like looking into a mirror.
You know it is bad when semi-truck after semi-truck is stopped
on the side of the road or only going 20km.
Let's pray that it doesn't rain again today.
An early morning appointment that is a must to get too.
Our son Tristan has been dealing with so much
his truck was stolen while he was away working on a 24 days on shift. 
So many frustrations dealing it and so much other stuff stolen from it.
Not to mention the damage to the outside and inside.
It is totally disgusting inside and heart breaking for him.
It makes  me so disappointment in people.
He worked so hard for his truck and looks after his
stuff. 
I pray this week is a better one for everyone in the world.

Today, we have a fantastic new challenge up
