Mr. Grinch

29 Nov

As we get closer to Christmas I will watch my favorite Christmas movies. One of them is How the Grinch Stole Christmas, I watch it every year. It always helps me to remember what is important during the holidays. Just like Cindy Lou Who said “Christmas is not about presents and gifts, it’s about being together with family and friends.” This is just for you, Amanda!!!!!!

 

First Snow!

29 Nov

I picked an appropriate Christmas song yesterday didn’t I? It’s Christmas time pretty baby, and snow is fallin’ on the ground…..

Tuesday Tunes

29 Nov

This is a special Tuesday Tunes, Holiday Edition. The first song is on most lists of greatest Christmas songs, and the second song is my favorite Elvis Christmas song because we all know Santa drives a great big black Cadillac!

Let it Snow!

29 Nov

There are some big flakes of snow coming down now, I still don’t think it will amount to anything. Check out the video….

You can also see the heirloom roses by the door are still blooming. They don’t have really showy blooms, but they are tough and hardy, disease and insect resistant and will make good filler plants on the homestead.

Woodstove

28 Nov

Today is another dreary, rainy day.

You can’t tell from the picture but we are having a combination of rain, sleet and snow. There is no danger of accumulation because the lows are going to be around 35 degrees, but it is still cold and nasty if you are out in it. But I just bought something to take care of that feeling…..

Yeah, that’s right, a new wood burning stove! It will probably be a while before I can get it set up but I already have a supply of green firewood to burn. By this time next winter I will have a good supply of dried wood to burn, I’m really looking forward to it. It should keep me warm and toasty!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

May you have a wonderful day with your family and friends, as each of us pauses to be truly thankful for the many blessings we have. We may not have everything we want or need, but there are many people out there less fortunate than us. So let us give thanks for what we do have and count our many blessings.
