The greeting cards have all be sent

the decorations, gift gathering, and planning are done.
As the days towards Christmas start winding down, 
so do the days that mark the end of another year.
While I did not get as much as I had hoped accomplished in this one year,
I can say I am happy with what I did accomplish and with what I have learned on what I do want to accomplish in the year to come. I am not one for resolutions....but I do have plans and hopes of what could be possible.
How about you?
The outside grounds are just now starting to die down for a long winters nap.  As much as I would like to stay inside and stitch by the fire during these days, these cold days allow me the opportunity to clear new garden spaces and to get" hard to manage" projects out of the way.  Simply because there is not 100 degree heat to try to tolerate and the rattlesnakes are a little less aggressive.  I feel a little bit safer working on a chilly day and I can get much more accomplished
I have the  reward of my needle waiting when I am through.
As the last days of this year pass one by one, 
here's wishing you joy, peace and contentment.
Have yourself a Merry Christmas!

So remember while December
Brings the only Christmas Day
In the year let there be Christmas
In the things we do and say
Wouldn't life be worth the living
Wouldn't dreams be coming true
If we kept the Christmas spirit
All the whole year through.
