My precept to all who build, is,
that the owner should be an ornament to the house,
and not the house to the owner.
Another Random 5 Friday and lucky for us Nancy is back hosting and I for one am very happy about that. Here are my Random 5. Thank you Nancy.
1- It is now officially the holiday season that I knew was coming but it certainly did seem to sneak up on me this year. I have decided if only to keep some sanity in my life that what has not been done will not get done and what is done will have to be good enough. Simple and back to the basics is what I was going for.
2- The beauty of this time of year never disappoints and I take great pleasure in enjoying those things that change day to day and I just have to take notice. As you are reading this I may according to the weatherman be out taking photos of ice from an upcoming freezing rain storm. Oh I do hope he is wrong this time.
3- Like many of you my Christmas traditions will be changing this year and I look forward to seeing just how that change will actually impact my life. I have learned over the years that changes in the way we have had to do things are inevitable especially as we age and we should try to embrace any new traditions that come about because of those changes. It, in my experience, has usually brought unknown joys that I would never have expected.
4- Our girls will be coming home from the big city for the holidays (If the weatherman is wrong) and I cannot wait to feel those hugs I have been missing and hear the familiar giggles and that laughter that will be echoing down the hall when someone is trying to sleep, always bringing a huge smile to my face and stirring memories from long ago.
5- My Hero will be home for a couple of weeks which means the cows will see his handsome face sitting in that tractor seat those early cold mornings instead of mine. I am sure they will not notice and I am positive those two weeks will go quickly.
In keeping with that whole what is done is done and not worry about the what is not done thing, I do hope you enjoy these unusual holiday cards as there will not be any arriving in your mailbox but please know I really do care.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone from my family to yours.
Your friendship and support mean more to me than I could ever express. Thank you and see you soon. Enjoy the holidays for all they are worth.
