A Belated Merry Christmas,...

A belated merry Christmas to all, and a Happy New Year!

Christmas was quiet, but very nice. One daughter was sick, and just recuperating, the heat upstairs wasn't working, and the dryer stopped too. But, hanging clothing is about to end, as the parts are due by today or they are free. One daughter wishes them to be a day late. Hahaha.

The heat was just a worn wire, and blown fuse. Hallelujah, 'and then there was HEAT!' My cats are now happy as two of them caught colds. The snow is on the ground and the roads are fine, but not so on Christmas Eve as it took 2 1/2-3 hours to drive home from a Costco half an hour away from here- getting over two mountains very slowly and carefully. I took the small car and it was great in the snow and on the ice. Others swerved this way and that, but I hardly did. Just kept steering the right way when necessary and all was well- just my nerves a little frayed.

We missed going out to my niece's, yet maybe the quiet day movie watching was what the doctor ordered, as my middle one being sick would've been miserable driving four hours total.

Why the butterfly? Because they signify new beginnings, and we are about to start a new year.

Thank God for the easy fix with the heat. We had to wait a while , but then it inspired me to fix a few other things around here, as the weight was lifted. (I was worried about a huge bill.)

God Bless, and keep your spirits light, trust and have faith that good will prevail, because that is what is promised to us:)

Hi dear Lydia! Im glad you have heat again, and I hope that everyone including the kitties are feeling better. I think sometimes God puts some blocks in our path to cause us to slow down (stay home) and relax. dont you?
I hope you had a blessed christmas regardless.
and, Im glad to see you here!
Happy New Year.. old friend!

Thank you both. Yes, and I have been enjoying relaxing, although I always feel I should be doing something:)
