My Paradise Moon Wishes Everyone a Happy Holiday

On Sunday evening I watched as the snow fell from the sky, the first snow of the season. When I awoke the next day the snow of the season deposited itself all over and caused cars to slid and slip including the plow. It was beautiful and new and even the dog found it fun to play in.

And as I get ready for the holiday I look out at

the snow, and recall so many fun things I did as a child.
I didn’t care how cold it was out; I rode my sleigh up
and down a hill of white cold snow.

I would go home and take off my wet gloves and boots and my fingers and feet burned as they thawed out. The next day I put on the gloves that dried near the stove and shoved my feet with my shoes into my goulashes

and went out again.

There are many memories in my mind as I sit here, the glass wax that my mother added color to and decorated the windows, the small round silver, green and red foil wreaths with the orange lighted candles in the middle that she put in each window.

The large colored Christmas lights that was wrapped through the branches that had so much space between them that the light radiated out of the tree which the balls and tinsel reflected the colors.

My heart is full of memories and good wishes for all to enjoy their holiday.

4 Weeks to Christmas

Now that Thanksgiving is over, this is where time seems to fly. With Christmas being less then 4 weeks away, I suggest getting any online shopping done ASAP. I worry that items that I order won’t come on time.

Most of the
shopping that I do on the handmade shops seems to get here very quickly, but with the shipping it is not always in the hands of the seller. I myself mailed things early enough to reach the destination, and somehow it vanished into limbo, causing much anxiety and panic.

Although I insure any thing that I mail, thinking this will guarantee me delivery I am always reminded there are no guarantees in life. I chew my fingernails and pace the floor until I hear it finally has arrived, and I can begin to breathe again.

As I give a sigh of relief after hearing the last of my packages were delivered and arrived intact I very quickly forget all the anxiety I had just been through as I am told they love what they received. Yes I will again go through this year after year as I pack up the last of my gifts and run off to mail them.

"I wonder if people really see the true gifts in life...?"

The Colors of Fall in Late Afternoon

I just wanted to share some of pictures I took with my little camera.

These were taken not to far away from where I live in the late afternoon. I didn't have to travel far from home to get these wonderful shots...
