Greetings Sweet Friends,
Hope this finds you well and happy and
recuperating from all the Christmas
Season Celebrations and looking forward
to New Years! Been a fairly quiet week here
since Christmas day, so we have just been
taking it easy and enjoying our still decorated
for Christmas home, we are not ones for
taking our things down till after the New
Year or after 3 Kings day (which is Jan.
the 6th) or some call it Ephiphany, that
is a celebration of when the wise men
went to visit baby Jesus. (Just in case you
never hear of it..... I had never heard of that
until I started blogging and found that some
of our Catholic friends celebrate that, and I
thought that was really neat, and then thought
maybe that's why I never like to take my decor
down early. Instinctive maybe!! lol
Pictures today are of our Christmas table 202l.
Do you see my Oops in the background?? lol
Thankful for a really lovely Christmas, it was about as
perfect as it could get this side of heaven, and with
part of the family missing.......since our daughter and
Son-in-love couldn't come this year, but we did
get to talk, with them of course. We got to enjoy it
with our Son, lil darling and my Sister-in law
Susan, on Christmas Eve due to schedules.........
Thankful for a nice breakfast on Christmas day with
all the same people as on Christmas Eve. So we
had a nice morning and we were tired out after
Christmas eve anyway, so it turned out to be
a restful day, which was just fine.....
Thankful for all the lovely cards and gifts we
received from our family and others.
Thankful we were able to be back in church
this Sunday. Pastor gave a great message
that was probably quite helpful to a lot of
people, I would think......was a nice reminder
for this girl.............
#5 and 6
Thankful for a nice lunch out at Olive Garden
just hubby and I.....and it was quite delicious.
Our friends couldn't go cause they weren't here
as they were traveling back from South Florida.
So we missed seeing them, but looking forward
to when we can get together again.
Also Thankful for the warm, polite, respectful
young man who was our server, he was just so nice
and really stands out in a crowd and was as cute as
could be, and he sent us both home with a bowl
of soup for lunch the next day. Needless to say
he got a good tip............lol
Thankful that we might get to see our long time
friends this week. (She is the one who broke both legs)
and they are supposed to be in the Orlando area this
week, so hopefully we can connect.
That would be great!
Note: unfortunately that didn't happen, as
she wound up not feeling well, her legs were
hurting her a lot, probably overdid it a bit
as they went away to her Sons for Christmas.
We are gonna try again maybe the end of
January, so thankful for that.
Thankful I was inspired to do a New Years
card today, to send to family and friends.
I have never done that before, but since
I didn't send some Christmas cards, I thought
this would be a nice unexpected greeting.
Thankful that our Son and lil darling got to
leave for a camping trip today (Monday)
since he is off work all this week, and she is
still out of school. Looks like a very nice
camp ground too! Hope they have an
Note: They return today after 3 days
of camping....can't wait to hear about it.
Thankful that we got to have a long time friend
over for breakfast on Tuesday. It was a really a
Sweet time of fellowship and lovely time of
catching up in each others lives.
