Merry White Christmas

Like most people in the world, I am a creature of habit. My morning routine may seem silly to some but the first thing I do after setting my feet on the floor (beside running to the bathroom) is go to the computer and check my e-mail. The following photo is what greeted me today outside our office window.

Our first white Christmas in recent memory. By the time I got up we already had two inches on the ground with several more predicted. We will be lucky if the cars slipping and sliding on our hill do not take out the rear of our truck (in photo). While all my Christmas shopping is complete I do need to go out for a few forgotten grocery items. Best get them early. I feel for those that waited to the last minute, they may get snowed in.

There is already no rest for the Volunteer Fire Department. The guys have been coming and going on a regular schedule this AM.

Gratefully, we have a quite Christmas Eve planned at home with our daughter's family. And, they live just down the street so they can walk up here for dinner.

Tomorrow however, is a different story. We are scheduled to make the ninety minute trip to spend Christmas with the Old Salt's brother and his family. This will be the first time since childhood that the two brothers have both been in the same area and able to actually spend Christmas day together, so it is an event we do not want to miss because of snow.

It will probably be in the new year before I have time to post again so I am sending all of our best wishes to all of my family, friends and faithful followers for a great week. May your Christmas and New Year bring you rest, cheer, joy of family and friends and spiritual renewal.


  1. Merry Christmas to all! Drive carefully to that wonderful family reunion. Snow looks pretty, but I do not envy you.

  2. Happy Christmas Rita. Thanks for hosting such an interesting and entertaining blog.

  3. Merry Christmas guys. Stay safe and warm. Hope you all are able to get get to Old Salt's brothers location.


Thank you for stopping by my site. Without your visits there would be no incentive to continue posting. So, having you here and reading your comments is the highlight of my day.

I regret that time does not always allow me to return visits to everyone who stops by, but, I will certainly do my best to get to everyone. I will definitely answer any questions you leave me.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
