HAPPY CHRISTMAS SEASON TO ONE AND ALL!!



Good Morning.
Welcome to Christmas Season 2013.

Yes, it's no longer far away.
No longer getting closer.
No longer almost arrived.
IT - IS - HERE!

(Which explains the shorter count - we are down a segment!)

Days to Thanksgiving: 15 (Two weeks from tomorrow!)
Days to Christmas Day: 42 (Six weeks from today!)


Wow!
Winter arrived with a bang yesterday afternoon.
The temps fell like a rock, the wind picked up and we even had some sleet in the late afternoon.
Oh, well -- it's Seasonal!
We have started at a shivery 31 degrees here this morning.

Have a Wonderful Wednesday and a truly Vivacious Visit to the special 'Pines open house this evening to honor the arrival of the Season!



Some thoughts:

Well, what a fantastic Special Post Series it has been.
Seems like it just keeps getting better by the year. What talented
writers we have!
And what a wonderful run-up to the Season we had last night.

In recent years, we have heard alot about the value of "diversity".
Diversity does indeed have its place but it seems to me it's the primary cause of conflicts.

By contrast, what I have noticed on this site over the years is the value of non-diversity. It is our COMMONNESS of feelings, interests and beliefs that has united us into a wonderful close-knit community that has been remarkably conflict-free.
(Just look at other sites, especially political ones, if you truly want to see a contrast in tone.)

Here. One place. One santuary.
One location where everyone feels at home and comfortable with each other.

Enjoy the 50-day Christmas Season to the fullest, fellow Christmas Comrades in arms.
And feel as one and at peace.

Merry Christmas, Everyone!

- Crown

I just noticed a neighbor across the street has their outdoor Christmas lights up!!!

It's 29 degrees this morning. LOVING IT!!! I told Wayne, "pinch me, am I dreaming"? I still have the horrid memories of summer heat on my mind. Ha ha! This is the weather I am loving! I still have not turned on my central heat, just bundled up enjoying the chilly air in the house. Yep, I am crazy! I just now saw our 7 day forecast and it will be 80 degrees this weekend! What?!

I am way behind on here and have missed the Special Post. The only one I have read is Made's (which was wonderful!). I will have to "dig" through here to find them all but will do that soon! I have been busy busy but with all good stuff!

Have a Merry Day my Christmas Friends!

Very true, Crown! I am a member of several other forums as a lurker ONLY! I had to become a member to view pictures, etc. A couple of them are travel forums that I do get a lot of info from to help me out on travel plans. These forums should be a "happy place" but all they do is fight, name calling and more, it's insane! You could start a thread with a picture of a cute kitty and by the 3rd post it breaks out in an argument. Yes, it's that bad! Ha ha! I have to weed through the garbage to get the info I need. I absolutely will not post on those forums. This is the only one where I feel at home and everyone respects one another.

Like I told my daughter one day that people are really nice on MMC and she replied, "It's because everyone is so Jolly"!

back home now....had to pick up my uncle Georg from the hospital and drove by a bakery and a butcher´s so he can get some stuff to eat (he doesn´t have a car)....tomorrow I will drive him around so he can buy some beer and some groceries.

After that I went to the grocery store with Kandice to get some needed things.....like tissues for her running nose....we were out of tissues....which is not cool when someone is sneezing like crazy!!!

Good morning, friends!!

Happy Pines Day!!

It is a chilly 21 degrees here, with light flurries ❄️ So pretty!!

I work the rest of the week, and have the weekend off =] Very excited about that.
Decorating the trees then! Yay!!! 🎄
And then, getting the rest of the decorations out.
We will do the village last, it is quite the undertaking!!

When are you guys decorating?

It was so nice to welcome the season with you all last night- talk about Christmas magic.

Hope you all have a blessed day!!

xx
