Snow Day

Emmy was like a child on Christmas morning when I took her outside.
Just two days ago, the sun was shining, the lake was blue, the water was rippling against the shore. Now, shades of gray, sheets of ice and a thick white blanket of freshly fallen snow are decorating December's canvas.
Ahhhhh, the beauty of Michigan.
Time to go inside . . . I made a pot of Northern Bean soup. Sunday was definitely a hot soup kind of day.
This evening my sisters are coming over - to my nest - for our annual Christmas get-together. My theme is Oprah inspired: "my favorite things." We are each preparing one of our favorite dishes, and in lieu of individually chosen gifts, we are bringing three of the same thing - one of our favorite things - to gift each other. I thought that would be fun; sharing and giving and receiving something we each personally love.
I'll be back to writing and posting regularly in about a week or so, but for now - as a woman, a mother, and a 'gammy' - the holiday season keeps me very busy. I'll keep in touch with these little updates until Time gives me her gift.

Sounds lovely, Lindy. I hope you and yours have a safe and wonderful holiday. Looking forward to "seeing" you when you get back. :)

Lindy,
Have a peaceful time for the holidays and remember whatever you gain in weight you can lose by shoveling all that nasty snow.

Much peace

Take your time getting around, Lindy. Enjoy the snow days, holidays, and of course, your family.

Take care

Happy holidays -- here's to all favorite things. For me, it's sitting on my rear end, drinking, reading, and not worrying. We'll see how it goes!
