Time to Live Up to My Name
Christmas is just around the corner. The house is full of the scent of baking cookies, which I might add are being gobbled up before they even have a chance to cool, and I am really just in Christmas fever (or is that joy?). As for the cookies, maybe I should bake more frequently? I am sure if my grandkids has a chance to vote they’d say yes. :)
Really, this is my favorite time of the year, the weather is cozy, the family is close, and everybody just seems to be happy.
Some forty odd years ago when our first was born, things were a little different. We had just gotten married the year before. We bought a house in the mean time and we were getting settled. That was one of the only years I am remember we didn’t get a tree. My husband made it up to me though. When spring came he went out and planted a pine tree in the back yard, which is still standing by the way. You can see it on the side of my site. I took that picture during a snow storm in ‘04 or ‘05 it was around New Year’s day so I can’t really say anymore. That is the thing about getting old. You have so many days to remember and it is just hard sometimes.
Today is a good day for us and I hope it is for you as well. Stay happy, healthy, and safe!
