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...
