I’ve been taking a few days off~taking time to watch old movies, complete a Christmas puzzle, chase a very busy puppy, bake a Red Velvet Cake with my daughter, cook two very big holiday meals, sleep, and read books I didn’t write!

I hope all of you are finding time to enjoy a day or two off as well!

As always, I count my family, my faith and my readers in my many blessings. Thank you for your many notes, hugs, and smiles!

With Christmas blessings to you,

    Hi Shelley

    I’m glad you have taken some time for yourself and your family. It sounds like you are really enjoying yourself and you deserve to.

    I spent Christmas with my daughter and son-in-law and his brother and sister. And of course their two dogs (minpins) and two cats. 🙂 (Had to take my Benadryl within a half hour of arriving)

    Kostas, iris butter and powder were used for centuries in cosmetics. They would certainly behave differently than a CO2 extraction, as would a resinoid. I regret the original Dior Homme as well!

    I love time travel also. Diana Gabaldon got me started with ‘The Outlander’. Melanie’s book sounds wonderful. Being a Scot myself, I can’t wait to read it.

    We do take so much for granted…good to see you find ways to be thankful when you are dealing with your daughter’s vision loss. I had similar feelings when our son was young and had trouble with his ears…when the doctor put tubes in his ears he was amazed at all he could hear that he hadn’t heard before…even the “snap, crackle, pop” of Rice Krispies!
