This is the sight that greeted me as I stood on my front porch this morning. It couldn’t wait 24 hours? I’m all for a white Christmas, but only on the grass. Not the roads. It is pretty, though, isn’t it.
I’m pretty sure Santa will show up, snow or no snow…
Julie’s and Tessa’s kids enjoy seeing the picture ornaments from long ago school days.
A bottle of glue and access to his dad’s workshop for a few hours resulted in Greg creating this treasured sled.
Ornaments from family no longer with us are hung with care.
Earlier this week, our friends (Patti from Osage Bluff Quilter and The Blacksmith, who we met through blog land, visited. We had a wonderful afternoon as we snacked on holiday goodies and drank a little wine. The Blacksmith was good enough to deliver some key chains I was giving as Christmas presents. Check out his blog for a large selection of iron beautiful and unique iron work.
For the first time is 38 years, I did not get a single Christmas card mailed. I feel so guilty as I open card after card from blog friends. I so appreciate your good wishes. You’ll never know when the odd card will turn up in your mail boxes. Thank you for all the good wishes. I hope you know they are sent back out to you from my heart.One of my best friends, Rita B. had gall bladder surgery on Wednesday. She has been having problems forever and kept insisting it was her gall bladder. All of the tests came back negative, but she finally got a surgeon to listen to her. The gall bladder is gone and so are the attacks. It is kind of a bummer to be recovering from surgery this time of year, but I’m pretty sure the relief of no more pain is worth it. Hope you are doing good Rita. And stay off those stairs!
