Watching our morning show today, the weather guy comes on and says, “your local forecast is, Yikes!”
Ok, so he got my attention, I had never heard of Yikes-weather. He follows that with, its going to get below 0. Guess he was just being funny, below 0 around here is normal. No big deal, dig-out the winter clothes. We have 6 inches of snow already, cold and sunny is nice.
Shop till you drop is what they say. I say, shop local when you can. Better yet, make some art or make a meal for the ones you love.
Becca is getting good grades in college. No kidding, this sweet gal has a brain. At 59 she is carrying a full load of classes. After a year and a-half now, she is feeling as if she might be able to graduate with two degrees. Still a ways to go, she’s just half way. Wish her luck, math-class is hard.
When it comes to decorating for the holidays, we don’t waste any time. The granddaughter was over for Thanksgiving, and as with tradition, we picked out the Christmas tree, and it is up and decorated. After all, this is the merriest time of the year. Don’t let the holidays stress you out. Start early and decide that this year you will celebrate the holiday season in a relaxed and organized way.
I readied my red new bobsled
But put it in back in the shed,
Pulling my cap over my head
I trudged to the house instead.
There is music and magic in the air…
We are sending our Christmas greetings…
To those about whom we care …
We’d already done all the chores, and I couldn’t think of anything else that needed doing, especially not on a night like this. But I knew Pa was not very patient at one dragging one’s feet when he’d told them to do something.
Becca’s Cranberry Chicken Recipe.
Cranberries are only in season for a short time, and there are many recipes to enjoy them.
Thought For Today –
Sometimes you’ll never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory…
Warm by the fire, Steven and Becca
