HappyHolidays


I have many gifts left to buy and even more to wrap.  I have done no Christmas baking as of yet.  That being said, this year I have decided that some things will just not get done.  The holidays will  not be perfectly decorated nor all of the traditional favorites cooked and the rest that comes with the season.  I am good with it though.  Just hope the family will be as right with it as I am: that to be able to gather together once again really is the best part of the season.  Nevertheless, to my oldest and new friends, have the best of days in the year remaining.

My sweet angels are waiting to see if they are getting gifts (anything) or just switches and coal (probably lots).

  2. First of all, how happy I am for Sister and you! That is a great Christmas gift. I too, just couldn't get completely with it this Christmas. I managed a bit of decor in one room, but the lovely little tree I brought home still sits atop a table with only the lights strung on it's boughs. It seems silly to decorate it at this late date, I just don't feel like it. So I won't! First time ever, I did not decorate a real tree.

  4. Donna, I'm so happy to learn your dear pup's surgery was a success - a Christmas blessing indeed :))
    Do yourself a favor and just BE during the holidays, don't DO. That's my motto this year. xoxo
