“I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year. I will live in the Past, the Present, and the Future. The Spirits of all Three shall strive within me.’’ – Ebenezer Scrooge
Well, we certainly aren’t keeping Christmas this year in the way we have grown accustomed to.
I inherited these Christmas decorations from my mother-in-law recently. The tree, Santa and the Dickens carolers, Bob Cratchet and Tiny Tim. The tree and the Santa are newer additions to her collection, the carolers I remember her having as long as I can remember. It is special to have them in our house now.
Just a few snaps from my photo journal this week.
We survived the ice storm, many downed trees, and broken limbs. Widespread power outage, that left us appreciating electricity and running water. The power crews did a good job of restoring our power, after about 9 hours. Many weren’t so lucky.
Mr. Red Dirt took this first photo last night. Our Parks and Rec. Department put on a drive-thru light show two nights in a row. It was sweet and humble and perfect for this stranger than strange year. Sadly the cars behind us wanted to drive faster than we did, no getting out of your car, so it was hard to snap photos while driving in the dark. This is the only photo that turned out half decent. We drove the loop twice and completely enjoyed the simplicity of it all.
We shall nestle down for the holiday with our furry and feathered critters, lots of snuggly blankets, and cups of steaming good cheer topped with dollops of whipped cream and homemade cookies.
Wishing everyone a Merry Everything!
Until next time, Be Safe Be Well.
