An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger." Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests."

I must have cried a bucket of tears when I put the ornaments on the tree this morning. Everyone of them had a sweet memory, an angel from my niece that I have put on the tree every year for over 30 years. The last ornament Judy sent me.
I cried when I put up Izzie's stocking, she has been such a joy for me, but I still miss old bubba.
I enjoy all the cards from friends and family who are thinking of us.
This cute little guy is from my sister Connie, Iz loves to try to get hold of it.
Jay even suggested I add another string of lights! I almost fell of my chair!!
My little tree, my sister Louise made this angel for me years and years ago, I love her more every year.

Today is J's birthday, we are going to have a happy hour later today. It's chilly here today so I am making some spiked apple cider to warm us up and we will have a fire. The sun is shining bright and if the wind would just die down it would be lovely.
This morning I was in such a fluster I gave J one of his Christmas gifts for his birthday, now I have to come up with some more ideas. His main gift is coming today, I got him at helmet camera, lots of times he see really neat things, like all kinds of animals when he is way up in the mountains but by the time he takes his gloves off and gets the camera out the shot is gone. This is going to pay off for me because I will get to see more of what he sees.

I have been such a Debbie Downer the last month or so, I apologize, I am going to make a real effort to get to the place where I am more comfortable. I have had a lot of crap concerning my health through the years, but it always works it's way out, I know that. Even if I lose a little, I still have a lot compared to some of the other survivors who got a dose of that last polio virus before the vaccine came out. I have a wonderful husband, a sweet little dog, family and friends(old and new, here and in heaven) who would be there for me in a minute, so enough of this doom and gloom. Full speed ahead, figure out what the problem is this time and deal with it. Enough for this matter.
Jay has been bringing back some beautiful pictures from his rides on the motorcycle. He and I both really enjoy having the cameras on our IPhones. Thought I would show you some of his, helps you understand why we love this place so.
I must say he does a pretty good job with composition, although half or more of his pictures have the bike in them, who wants to see a dirty old motorcycle.
Of course I spend a lot of my time running around here taking pictures of Izzie. Getting this little dog has made such a difference in my life, Can you imagine how far I would have sunk without Izzie to pick me up?
I have included pictures of some of here favorite sleeping places, that little girl does love her a nap.
We were driving when I took this one, she likes to stay up front between us when we are on the road, I think she does it so J can't sneak a cookie by her.
This is one of her favorite places when we are parked, makes a nice napping place and if anyone comes by the door, she is right there in a heart beat to check them out.
This morning after we had finished our coffee J was looking for her in all her usual places to take her for a walk before his ride. We couldn't find her anywhere, he went into the bedroom, and there she was. She decided, what the heck, she would just go to bed.
This is one of her all time favorites, she doesn't get to do this often, but at the end of the day, when J settles down, she loves to crawl up and stretch out. Now tell me, isn't that one of the cutest things you have ever seen.
