jerry garcia, my favorite ornament

always makes Christmas happy

something old, very old
this angel has been a part of Christmas
since forever ago
thanks for grounding me with rich traditions, mom

something new, sweet children's book
The Nativity by Julie Vivas
LOVE those slippers

the taste of Christmas morning
since we were 3 grownups this year,
i did it up grown up style
mmmmmmmm. . .

Steinbeck's The Pearl, my favorite book of all time
"If this story is a parable, perhaps everyone take his own meaning from it and reads his own life into it."
This edition was printed in 1947

i am so looking forward to this. lucky me!

a red beauty. LOVE that wooden snowflake tag.

my stock replenished. comfort.

i've been wishing and waiting for this.
i think i may have surprised some folks with O Susannah today.

i'm going to put on some happy concert clothes,
stick the matching DVD in and rock and roll with Paul Mac.
anyone want to come along?
looks like a good date to me.

Merry Christmas
