Hi there. How have you all been?  This month is simply flying by. It has been Christmas shopping, baking and some shocking moments with extended family. Moments that remind me of this quote a friend sent me... "Time is precious, make sure you spend it with the right people." Be it friends or family,  I hope you're spending this month with the right people for you.  Have a wonderful week. Photo is mine

Hello you. Just thought I'd show my face here and couldn't think of a better place to start. Mainly because I have very little imagination ;-) And that quote. Don't I know it!!! Hope things are well with your extended family.

Hello you . Um, only because you don't have a better imagination then, not because it is a fabulous place to start? Why I never. Yes, I know that quote speaks to you, so very sorry that all our loved ones can't always be with us . My Uncles are back home, now they need to heal, but at least they are back home.

@bluesa Yeah well even if it were a fabulous place to start (which I'm not saying it is!!) I wouldn't tell you that. You know I'm not one for handing out compliments

Hi Catherine! Indeed, it is flying so fast. This is the reason why I've been spending time with people that I love. It is wonderful, to be able to spend time with the right people and be able to serve and make them happy as well.

Well, with you so far away, it surely is gong to be hard to spend my time with the right person this holiday season! So I will just have to be there in spirit with you! Wherever you go, just imagine that I am right there by your side! Well, except for when you use the bathroom. I won't be by your side then. I'll leave you alone to a little privacy when you have to use the bathroom! But otherwise, I'll be right there at your side!

@bluesa Now, with that being said, I am happy to give you the privacy you need to use the bathroom, but I do want to join you when you take a shower or a bath!

I know you've been ultra busy, but it's always great hearing from you! I'm not familiar with that lovely quote, but must admit that I've gotten rid of people baggage and spend time only with those I enjoy. lol Enjoy your week, too, and I love your tree!

Today was a crazy day for me but luckily I haven’t had to many of them lately. I hope the shocking family things aren’t deaths. The ornaments on the tree are ones I haven’t seen in years!

Good days are a bit calmer, aside from this day you had. Near deaths, but thankfully they are home healing. I have had some of these ornaments for years and years.

Hi. Good you've been ok. It must be so strange for you to not have snow this time of the year, I hope you'll get some snow soon. Thank you, I hope you have a good Christmas too!
