In all that is going on, we are getting some decorations in place. My wife and I talked about the nostalgia for the old house with its bay window and fancy fireplace. We are married now 33 years and we are starting all new traditions. I did assure my wife that if we were to return to the old house and feel the breezes coming through the bay window and see the fireplace smoking up the whole house that she would feel better about the "new" adventure. Getting the manger scene up during a commercial on television was a breeze.
I am glad we are moving along with the decorating. Sometime it is hard though as we put up ornaments that are holding memories of people we have lost. It seems that we have too many of them. I did discover a former teacher friend had died while digging on the internet, from whom I knew 40 years ago. She had made Andy a soft ornament in the shape of an elephant. He had been just born that December. Little did I know that the ornament has such a long distant memory of a person I only knew for four years in my youth.
I wish everyone to have a good day today regardless as to wether your are too cold or even too hot. Thanks for stopping by today.
