My brothers were nostalgic remembering Mom's Gulumpki, and there were a few teary eyed moments remembering Mom and Buscia. It was also sad remembering Monika's Dad who recently passed. It's always hard when someone is missing. So there were plenty of hugs all around,
My Honey and I had our quiet moment when we walk outside to gaze at the luminaries, and thank God for the amazing blessings of our life together.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Enjoy this beautiful day.

Notice my messy boxwood wreath on the door.
I bet she's as old as me at least. (I'm sixty)
Looks like the sun is peeking out after some gloomy rainy days. Some grocery shopping, then comes the baking. Plenty of time...TEN DAYS! Better get started. Thanks so much for dropping by and for your kind comments. Enjoy this beautiful day.

We were taking care of our baby grand from Wednesday through Sunday, and she was sick. Checked out by the doctor, ears, throat etc.all checked out. So she came to Grandma and Grandpa's. On Thursday I hosted our Guild Christmas Party. Eighteen lovely ladies and two little kids. It was a delightful evening and Penny had great fun with her pal Jake. The next few days were a blur of fever and snuggling, tea parties and cat videos. We pushed her bed right next to ours and I watched her and worried about her. It's been a long time since I had a sick child to care for. I guess we did the job well. When we picked up Mom and Dad at the Airport and dropped them off at home, Penny ran back for one more hug for Grandma and Grandpa. Precious time that is still a dream to us.
Some things are done, some things will eventually get done and some things will wait for another year.
The spirit of a household reaches farther
than the front door to the back.
It shines forth from a child's eyes and shows in
the way a man hurries back to his home.
Today I'll take some photos around the house as I make some progress on my Christmas Checklist.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy this beautiful day!
