No Restraint

I bought lots of candies today (mostly variations containing chocolate) and cookies covered in sugar crystals, and then put them all in my biggest and prettiest crystal containers.

Shine On Christmas Star

It is too bad that at this time when all things should be beautifully decorated and all people be gloriously happy, and music in the air everywhere, with wonderful goodies to share with people who come to tea, and the house have the aroma of cinnamon and spice or fresh evergreen tree, that little...

Starting Early

Very shortly I'm off to a Christmas Luncheon with loved ones who do not have to go off to work every day and can celebrate when and if they will. It is very cold, but the sun is shining and the clothing is warm. On my head is a crocheted hat made by one of my favorite ladies. Not only is it colorful... Sign in to see full entry.

Last Year's Christmas Present

Two days have gone by since I posted in this place. Time just keeps rolling along and doing what it does no matter what we wish it would.

President George W. Bush sat across the table from me today at the Corner Cafe in Riverside. All he ordered was one of their famous buttermilk biscuits, no gravy, just the biscuit, and then he only took two bites. I could see him plain as day, and his entourage, even though his time and mine were... Sign in to see full entry.
