Thursday Thoughts

Last weekend felt like Christmas, cold, windy, almost snowy.  The weather guys are saying our Christmas Day the temps will be in the mid-70's.  Ugh.  I know, for those of you who are facing freezing temps I must sound crazy.  But, I love winter...the cold, the snow, the clothes, the food, the bare trees.  Not even as a child, was I much of a fan of hot weather.  When you have pink skin and blue eyes, the heat, a tan, even the clothing is not very flattering.   Let's face it, rosy cheeks glow in the winter.  :)

I wrapped a few gifts tonight, will finish the rest tomorrow.  Jordan is spending tomorrow afternoon with us and we will bake a few cookies I am sure.  On Christmas Eve we will have breakfast with my brother Ricky and his family (Jordan's grandparents).  This will be the first Christmas in the 42 years we have been married that I have not cooked a turkey, some years I cooked 2 or 3, giving them to families that had no food.

I am glad Rick is feeling stronger, still unable to chew, but looking much healthier.  Things change, sometimes for the better, sometimes not.  This Christmas is different and that is ok.  I am grateful for what it is.

I hope that you all are able to relax and enjoy the season.  It will be over with all too soon.
Since we are always later with our decorating, we will keep the tree up until New Years.  Even then, I will be sad to take everything down, it is all so beautiful.

Goodnight, Sweet dreams


  1. Like you I like cold weather and it would seem more like Christmas if it was colder. Snow would be nice, but I don't think it will get down in our parts of the country. Maybe once every ten years. Ha.

  2. Today is very mild outside and there's a fresh fallen snow on the ground. Everything looks so Christmassy. It's a nice break from the extreme cold.

    Merry Christmas.
