Hello everyone, it has been a few days since I have been able to post. Life has been so very busy.
We actually thawed out here on Wednesday, it never did get as warm as they said it would but anything was an improvement. I have been on the go every day since. Unfortunately I lost my key chain while cleaning off my car. These included my house, mail box and safety deposit box keys as well as a few others. We searched for hours the past few days but I'm afraid they will not show up until the Spring thaws. It cost a small fortune to have them all replaced but I really had no choice, I now have a new set of keys for everything and finally was able to open my mail box....note to self.......be more careful. Honestly I would rather give something away than loose anything.
Monday will be my last day of shopping, Tuesday I have my course and Wednesday I am hosting my Christmas Tree. It will be so much fun. I have wrapped and filled stockings for all my patients and on Monday I am picking up trays of vegetables, fruit and sweets. I have already got in the wine, cheese, crackers and chocolates. I am so looking forward to sharing my home and decorations this year.
Thursday, Christmas Eve I am going to my nephews. We will all go to Mass then over to friends for a full Christmas Dinner. Christmas Day these same friends will come to my nephew's for another full Christmas Dinner. Christmas night, Monique my nephew's wife, family arrives as well as more friends and it is always lots of fun. I am really looking forward to having this time with the children, they are 12, 4 and 2, just the right age to enjoy Santa Claus.
I come home on the 26th as I have a party to go to in Beaumont on the 27th. I have a good friend visiting from Washington DC who will be at her daughters for Christmas. Her daughter is hosting a party for all her mother's old friends. I am so looking forward to this as I haven't seen her in several years but we have always kept in touch. My only problem is the driving as I have never driven there before and I don't know what the weather nor the highways will be like on that day. Oh well, will just take one day at a time and enjoy the moment.
I will not be posting until the Christmas rush has calmed down though I will still read and comment on all your blogs I promise. I want to take this time to tell you all how much you have added to my life this year. I feel as though you are all family and I have so enjoyed being surrounded by loving, kind and caring "village" people. You know I can't think of another Village in Blogland where I would rather dwell.
I wish all of you and your families a very Merry Christmas....may you only know love, peace and health during this most beautiful time of year.
God Bless.......many, many hugs......:-)
