Secret Santa @ School

Hey Y'all!  I hope you've had a great weekend and are ready for a busy week!
I am a little ticked off this morning...just so you know.
Last night, after church, I had to stop by the store and get a few things that we needed.  As I was giving Mr. Dollar General my money, a lady came inside and said it was snowing!  I hurried outside and got in the minivan and called Big Daddy and Robbie.  I could hear Robbie running to the back door to catch this year's first glimpse of snow.  He was screaming at the top of his lungs and he was so excited.  He was hoping I wouldn't have to teach school today so that we could stay home and enjoy our day.

Oh well---it was nice to dream a little bit anyway, right?!
Before I forget, and this is off the subject....if you like flavored coffee creamers, go, run to your nearest Wal-Mart and get the Coffee Mate CARAMEL APPLE flavor.

 It may just be my new favorite.  It sat in my fridge for about a week, because I kept thinking I wouldn't like it...but...I love it!  SO there...hee hee
A couple of weeks ago, we drew names here at school for our annual Secret Santa game we play!  Me, Big Daddy, and Robbie went shopping Friday night and bought gifts for mine.  I hope they like them!  I sent one of my students this morning to deliver the gift for my person.  I was so happy to see her coming back in with a gift for me too!  Here's what MY Secret Santa got for me:
You can't tell too well in the picture, but it's the prettiest pale yellow color!  LOVE IT!  I searched for a scarf pattern using only one skein and found this:
I think I may work that out tonight or tomorrow.  I have a huge granny square afghan that I'm working on for my daddy.  I thought I was finished, but it's a little too small.   Hopefully I'll finish that tonight after supper!
Please say a prayer for me.  I went Friday for my "girlie check-up" and my blood pressure was too high.  It was 156/110.  Ever since I had my gall bladder removed, it's been really high.  I'll be 40 in July, so I know it's time for everything to start falling apart--literally.  High blood pressure runs in my family, so hopefully we can get this under control really soon!
Hope y'all have a MARVELOUS Monday!
