Pride Cometh Before a…..

I am often lecturing my sweet hubby about his balance.  His balance isn’t the best because of past injuries.  Having had one foot broken off on his left leg and a severed quadriceps tendon on his right leg, I repeatably tell him he hasn’t a foot to stand on.   He often takes a tumble andContinue reading “Pride Cometh Before a…..”

Crumbs…

You know that pathetic plate of Christmas cookies that linger on your counter top on the 26th of December?  You know what I mean…  those hard sugar cookies that still look edible, but, you know you could chuck them into the woods and knock out a bear one hundred feet away?  Yes, those cookie crumbs. Continue reading “Crumbs…”

And time marches on….

It’s been two months since I last wrote on my blog.  Truthfully, it doesn’t seem like it has been that long, and I had to check my stats to actually prove to myself that it has been. Two months, eight weeks, sixty some days, more hours than I care to figure out.  It is timeContinue reading “And time marches on….”

Once Upon A Time at Christmas… Pt 2…

Christmas Day is usually a day that I love to cook.  I try to make our meal time special, the table settings, real napkins, and Christmas china and of course, food that is much different from my normal food.  I love to plan for it and I always want it to be special. Throughout myContinue reading “Once Upon A Time at Christmas… Pt 2…”

Once Upon A Time at Christmas…

A week ago, my daughter (Little Miss’ mom) and her family arrived for Christmas.  It was the first time in a decade that we were able to spend Christmas together.  I was so thrilled!  Her sister, obviously my other daughter,  was supposed to join us, but, at the last moment, couldn’t.  We were disappointed, but,Continue reading “Once Upon A Time at Christmas…”

Crumbs from Christmas….

Before I dig into my day I stop and think of what I want to accomplish.  I know I need to clean.  I look where our Christmas tree stood until late yesterday afternoon.  I swept up most of the fallen needles, but there are a few left on the carpet… waiting to be swept upContinue reading “Crumbs from Christmas….”

Lessons Learned…

Today is the 26th of December, Boxing Day as it is celebrated by our neighbors to the north.   It is a day we celebrated with our dear friends in San Diego who lived in Canada for several years. I wake up on the 26th yearning for the buffet that they always had and the eggnogContinue reading “Lessons Learned…”

Treasures…

This morning as hubby was reading the Christmas story from the book of Luke, I heard a phrase that I have often heard, but, for some reason it stood out today. The phrase is, “but Mary kept all these things in her heart and thought about them often.”  (Luke 2:19, New Living Translation). Mary treasuredContinue reading “Treasures…”

Happy Christmas Eve…

Today,  on Christmas Eve, I defer to an author whom I love.  He can describe winter and Christmas so much better than I can.  Hope you have a wonderful Christmas filled with the laughter of family and friends. May there be many memory making moments for you this year, and now, courtesy of Charles Dickens,Continue reading “Happy Christmas Eve…”

Christmas Love Story…

40 years ago hubby went into the navy.  He left the day after Thanksgiving in 1973.  I got up at 4:30 a.m. to ride down with hubby and his father to the recruiting office where a bus met them to drive them to Pittsburgh.  From Pittsburgh he got on his first plane and flew toContinue reading “Christmas Love Story…”
