Good Saturday morning, my Christmas friends!

I got a great nights' sleep, and I had a great cup of decaf coffee. Now I'm sitting here with Elizabeth watching Spongebob. It's a beautiful day here in Bellville. It's sunny and 65 degrees with a high of almost 80. I'd love to go fishing!

I think I'll get dressed and take a leisurely stroll through my little town. I walk everyday, but it's usually before daylight. It's pretty cool to see some of the stuff that you miss or overlook day-to-day. I like to ride our golf cart in places we usually drive by in our cars, but much faster. You see all sorts of things at 6 MPH that you missed at 60 MPH.

I hope y'all have a great day!

I agree!!!!

I didn't realise how much till I signed in this morning I felt like I was entering the door to some secret magical place.......well actually it is!

Anyway , things have been rather hectic at my end. My husband has been unwell since the start of the year. So I have not had the time to visit you all as much as I would like. I can't actually believe so many weeks have gone by to be honest! It will soon be christmas again!

I am sorry this is only a short visit. I hope that all of you are well and I will visit again soon and try to catch up with more of the posts.

Take care my christmas angels!
xxxxx Sam
So glad to see you here.

I hope your husband is getting better! I will be praying.

Ha ha! Dork alert here but I am back to watching the Brady Bunch again! They love the word, "groovy"! I have enjoyed that show since I was a little kid and still watching them even though I have seen every episode over and over. It's my "mindless" TV watching and fun. The grandkids watch it with me now too.

I hate nights like this and I have them all the time too.....I hope you get some rest...xo
