* A Little Christmas Cheer ...

Wendy and Sal came for the evening.  We enjoyed a lovely evening filled with good conversation, Christmas music and a dinner prepared from scratch!  (Not sure what's going on there, but I had the urge, so why fight it?!)

You haven't seen around the house lately, so I thought I'd give you a little Christmas update.

Thanks to all of you who drop by .. and a special thanks for all your wonderful supportive comments.  They are so special.  xxoo  Donna

“Christmas gift suggestions:
To your enemy, forgiveness.
To an opponent, tolerance.
To a friend, your heart.
To a customer, service.
To all, charity.
To every child, a good example.
To yourself, respect.”
 Oren Arnold
