Merry Christmas

My Christmas card is finished and mailed to everyone on my list, the tree is up, and this year I have colored lights both on the tree and outside on the lamp post. Boxes of ornaments have been taken out of storage, as old friends lovingly wrapped in tissue paper reappear for another holiday season. Handmade ornaments from a craft show, a round frosted ball from a favorite Aunt. Precious memories of family, friends and pets long gone. And each year a few new ornaments find their way onto the tree. A reminder that life goes on, new friends are found, new challenges are met, and we move forward as we enjoy life today.

I will spend this next week or so enjoying my twinkling tree, my early morning coffee and the evening news. In a way it recharges my batteries for whatever lies ahead. Merry Christmas everyone and Happy New Year!

A Home For The Holiday's

The cat that was patiently working his plan with my parents has moved in. He has a favorite chair, mouse toys to play with and he will proudly show you his food dishes. Of course sleeping on the bed is his favorite activity. He looks good, his fur is soft and shiny and he has put on weight! From what they tell me he patrols the yard keeping an eye on everything. I like a happy ending.

My final is next Thursday and than I have a few weeks off till next semester, I did not mean to disappear from my blog but it has been getting harder and this last class just took it out of me. I will be back!!
