Well everyone, the holiday is finally here! I am going to make this brief today (YES, Really!) because this little elf is still wrapping and cooking and knee deep in a mess! (Isn’t is FUN though!) The cats are wild because of all the additional activity and the frige and pantry is full of yummy goodies and I got my wish – there is SNOW on the ground and trees which make our little place look simply magical!!!
In reality, our holiday began yesterday. We spent the afternoon and evening in Digby with my ‘Canadian family’ of Bernie and Ellen. Their daughter Cindy was there as well as her two grown children and her granddaughter who lives all the way in Alberta with her new baby, Tucker! It was four generations together for the first time!
The food was wonderful and Tucker was darling and not at all daunted by all the new people and excitement and we had a simply incredible day!
I even saw a very dear friend of mine that I hadn’t seen in several years! We literally bumped into each other when we were making a quick stop at the store and we wound up catching up right there for quite a bit. I love small towns where things like that happen!
Today and tomorrow, we are heading to Keith’s parents house. His brother and his new wife are in town for Christmas and we will have another two days of wonderful company and food! (Rappie pie, Turkey and all sorts of goodies in between!) Too bad the gym is closed! (As IF!) ;)
But I wanted to take a couple of minutes to wish all of my friends from around the world who read here every day a very Merry Christmas! For those of you who aren’t Christian, I wish you all a wonderful Happy Holidays filled with good cheer and friends and family and food and happiness!
Whichever faith you choose to follow – or even if you don’t follow any at all, I wish you all the best that this world has to offer! Be safe. Be happy. And have FUN!
Thank you all for filling each of my days with JOY! :D
Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets. So love the people who treat you right, forget about the ones who don’t and believe that everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance, take it. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said that it’d be easy, they just promised it would be worth it. – Unknown
