Been Here

As you can see, I've been back briefly to update the blog to a wintry theme.  I wanted to do a red, white, and green blog for Christmas, but decided for as much work as it is, I would just do winter with a splash of pink to brighten it up.   If I have time I can always add red and green to the current theme.

I plan to follow-up soon with pictures to catch up with what's been going on--been busy.  Nothing bad has happened while I've been gone, at least nothing major.  There have just been a pile-up of activities that leave little energy for journaling and blogging.

I don't expect that too many of my casual readers have stuck around to see if I'm going to post anytime soon.  But, family will no doubt get a kick when they read this that the one thing consistent about me is my inconsistency.  

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving and I'm praying everyone else did too.  More about that later.  I had to do little preparation or cooking this year.

Now to push forward to Christmas in one month.  Whoever set up the dates for these two holidays didn't put thought into how much preparation must be squeezed into so short a time.  Is it real history, or fickle men, we have to thank?   Maybe someone with more time than I can figure it out.  If memory serves me right, it's  some of both.

Well, since I'm a fairly new follower...I'm still here! This is a busy time of year...getting hearth and home ready for winter alone is daunting sometimes. For Thanksgiving I took shortcuts this year and bought most of the desserts from Costco!

Happy Season to you!

One thing I've always been thankful for at Thanksgiving is that it isn't a British holiday!

I ♥ the line about one thing consistent about you is your inconsistency :)

Seems to me, too, that Christmas comes VERY close to Thanksgiving this year!

Your background is beautiful and you are SMART to think ahead and make work as easy as you can.

Glad to hear you had an enjoyable Thanksgiving...we did, too! Busy days filled with houseguests and happy activities have made the week speed by and the coming days will do the same for ALL of us, I'm sure.

Love the background pictures... makes me wish we'd see a little white stuff this Christmas time. Thanks for checking in with me. Peace and blessing to you as you prepare your heart and home for the arrival of the Christ-child.
