If You Just Believe

All is well at Woodhaven and just checking in as it may be a few days before she post and hopefully has some new images to share.

She was up in the dark - hey that is nothing unusual - she is always up in the dark at this time of year. Just think that little by little our days will become lighter. It is like a new beginning.

She has a sour cream pound cake in the oven, ingredients for a family favorite of over 40 years - fudge cake. Which family would rather have then candy. She has been cleaning veggies for tray and making sure turkey breast will be thawed out. A simple noon meal on Christmas Eve and she will make a mushroom quiche and spinach with artichokes .

Callie is doing great and is sleeping in the utility room with a gate at the door and IS NOT CHEWING.

Yesterday some workers came and continued cleaning on the woods as you approach her cottage. Huge brush piles that will be burnt when it is very wet or snow is falling. Do not want to set the woods on fire. Things are beginning to look presentable.

Wanted to share my daughter's recent post If You Just Believe.

This song speaks to the heart.

My little one has hair almost to her waist and I ask Miss J - why did you not pull it in front in this picture - since grandma thinks her hair is so pretty - she answered that she puts it in a pony tail for daycare and this picture was taken at a daycare function. Guess, grandma is fussy and always is arranging everything.

Special Blessings sent to you from One Woman.

Hi Ernesting, Glad to hear things are well at Woodhaven and Callie is doing good, too. Your cakes sound great. I wish you and your family a wonderful Christmas and New Year. I am leaving in the morning for the girl's farm for Christmas. Love and hugs, Judy

Many blessings to you, as well, Ernestine.
I couldn't help but laugh when I read your post about Callie chewing. Oh, don't you wish animals could tell us why?? On the other hand, maybe we don't want to know.

Sounds like you will have a lovely Christmas and I am so happy that you are so comfortably settled in to Wood Haven.
Love and Peace to you, Marcia

Everything is on track in your neck of the woods, I can tell. Sounds like you got some snow as well. I can almost smell those delicious cakes. I am off now to bake cookies.

Lonely Rivers, Thank you so much for the encouragment. Guess from here on it is just me, Miss Callie, and whatever I can plant and find in the woods!! Have a great visit with your mother.
