Over the River and Through the Woods...

...and the canyon, the mountains, the desert or the sea! Wherever you are, my friends, I send you wishes for a very Happy Christmas and a Blessed New Year. May they be filled with Love, Joy, Peace and Health!

Pull yourself up by your bootstraps, Girl!

my boots

It's time to get busy. Yep, I've been a little "homesick" for the old folks, but now it's time to "get the blues out" with some work around the homestead. Boxes and sorting will go back in the garage until later, some holiday decorations will come out, and seed will soon be planted on the plateau to fend off erosion from the coming winter rains - I just ordered them, so next weekend they go in. I won't have any time to mope - that's for sure!

And when the work is done, it's time to do a little socializin' with the neighbors in "town." First it's potluck at the Library for all of us who work there, then Saturday a Christmas dinner and awards ceremony at the brand new Fire House (I've been kindly invited by a retired firefighter) and Sunday is pot luck again at church - say, I think that means Monday I'd better start hiking in earnest!!

December 7, 1941 - Pearl Harbor, Hawaii

Today I'm remembering with gratitude all those known and unknown who gave their lives in death or in service on the battle fronts and home fronts and thanking them for my freedom today.

Ever have one of "those" days?

I bet you have. Me too. In fact I'm having one today - you know, hair won't cooperate, food doesn't come out right, the dress I'm sewing is just not working with me, things just didn't come out the way I had hoped when I got up. I'm all thumbs and scraped knees...

I think I'm officially giving up for the rest of the day. Time to bust out some old movies and ice cream. Well, maybe not the not ice cream - veggie sticks, anyone?

At least I don't have it as rough as this gal! And I hope your day is going better than mine. And if not, at least Miss Frontier and I can sympathise. So chin up! Tomorrow is another day...
