December 20th News

Thankful my grandson is home with family in Florida. Flu like symptoms over the last week and grandma was concerned. A departure in blizzard conditions from Copenhagan, stop in Iceland, New York and then safely home.

My daughter said he wants to prepare a meal for them while he is home. Made me smile as I can remember my son loved to cook. Also a thought that none of my daughters ever made this offer:)

One granddaughter arrived in Florida safely from New York. Another granddaughter with special friend will soon be on the road from Washington D.C.

Those near will visit Woodhaven at noon on Christmas Eve. A country breakfast with ham (new offering of cherry nut bread) presents, pictures taken, and maybe my little one will play a song for grandma on her guitar.

Family busy with going and coming and Grandma after not leaving the woods for 9 days - practiced taking pictures of herself.

Be who you are, and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those that matter don't mind

Yes, we all change and age and cannot stop time. It has been days since I left the least 5. With the cold and the snow I have sent my sous chef out for ingredients for my baking, lazy me.

Beverly said...

Beautiful you....

I was in for 5 days when the cold grabbed me...I was so happy to see another person....

Sharon said...

These are wonderful photos! I have yet to take a decent self-portrait.

Wishing safe travels for all who will be on the road this week.

I think you look great! someday the children will age and look in the mirror and see their mother looking back at them? I have my mother's hands now!!!

Beautiful pictures! Your Christmas Eve gathering sounds lovely, and I am so happy you will have Mum's cherry nut deliciousness as part of your celebration.

Enjoy and do indulge in the hibernation whenever the mood strikes. Natural, I feel.
