what a holiday!
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas.
My husband, who is a police officer worked Christmas Eve and Christmas,
so we had our family dinner on the 28th.
It was wonderful!
All of our children and grandchildren under one roof again.
My daughters and I cooked all day, and of course we had
more than we could eat. Much more!
The leftovers are always the best part of the holidays for me.
As you can see from the picture below, we got a wee bit of snow this week.
The wind blew for two days and we finally dug ourselves out yesterday.
There has been such severe Winter weather in so much of the country this week,
and I hope that you all are safe and keeping warm where you live.
I am 'snug as a bug in a rug' tonight, even though the temperature is a -10 degrees
Tomorrow I will spend the day packing away all the holiday decor for another year.
All the greens are crispy, and the candles spent...
but miraculously all the Christmas balls survived the 2 and 3 year olds!
It doesn't seem possible that we are welcoming a new year already.
I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that it is 2011.
I don't usually make resolutions. I have lived long enough to know that I just want
the same things from the new year that I wanted from the past one...
The list goes on from here...but these four are the biggies to me.
This is Jackson. He is my granddaughter Maddie's cat.
Maddie and her family moved, and Jackson couldn't go, so he lives here now.
He spends his days in the house and his night's in the studio.
I'm going to be spending a fair amount of time here with Jackson soon.
Christmas night my gallbladder decided to start misbehaving,
and I do mean misbehaving!
( the attacks hurt like heck)
The doc said I won't be keeping this piece of me.
So now I have to have it yanked. (as I like to call it)
Bad, bad gallbladder.
I think my warranty was up at fifty!
I would have liked to leave with all the parts I came with,
but I guess that's not gonna happen.
So I will be away from my blog for a while starting Monday.
I do hope to get around to all my friends before that. If I miss you,
I will definitely be around when I get back!
I can't wait to share a gorgeous gift I received for Christmas.
I will do it when I come back, because it has been a little too gloomy here to photograph it well.
Wishing you all a Happy New Year!
Love to you all!
