Living … One day at a time.

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday – 12 SLEEPS until CHRISTMAS EVE.

Wow, totally crazy to think and to know that there is less than two weeks until Christmas arrives.

All over the world we celebrate on different days and in many different ways.

We do a mix of Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

When I was a child there was always church on Christmas Eve.

We opened presents on Christmas Day morning.

Our big meal was always Christmas Day supper.

As I grew and made my own way in the world – things changed.

Christmas was spent between families when I was married and in divorce.

For most of my adult life there has been compromise.

It always seems to work out and isn’t that what life is all about a “degree of compromise.”

I do like to spread the Christmas Cheer all throughout the season and throughout the year.

During the Christmas Season I like to visit with as many friends and family members that I am able to.

The Christmas Season for me runs straight through until New Years.

After all ‘Tis the Season.

 

Me and My Sister
Christmas in the little house.

I think this is around 1963.

Real Charlie Brown Christmas Tree.

One of my favorite photos.

 

Me and my sister from a Christmas long ago …. I think about 1960…

Another favourite photo

 

 

Four of the Five of Us.

Before the baby was born making it FIVE.

 

One of my favourite things to do is the wrapping of gifts.

To be surrounded by love and laughter.

tis the season.

Merry Christmas.

 

Well time to head downstairs.

My ride was here almost twenty minutes early.

I told you about the toilet.

It continued to be one of those days.

But I am happy to report that it ended on a great note.

My son-in-law’s brother that had the heart transplant.

Continues to improve and be stronger each and everyday.

So incredibly happy for this family.

Best Christmas present ever.

Best any kind of present ever.

 

Time to go.

Have an awesome Thursday.

 

Always, Carol & Alvin
