The Holiday Season

By suggestion...

The holiday season is upon us. You know, Thanksgiving, the solstice, Chanukah, Christmas, and that season that brought us all to Oakland every year, New Year's...

Got plans? Got strong feelings about the season? Tell all!

you seem to have had a very eventful couple of months..or is this normal for you? Whatever the case I am glad at least that your unwelcome break has also led to a welcome one!!! Happy healing!

holidaze with the family

So I drove out to CO from SoCal to be with my hubby and son for Thanksgiving. My poor old pickup truck took a header in Tonopah AZ (not Tonopah NV!) so I got to spend an night with my favorite uncle in Phoenix, which was great. I got to Colorado on Sunday the 11/18 to spend the rest of the week here with my Boys.

I took a header off my front deck the following day, Monday, and broke a bone in my ankle. Surgery is set for 11 December. My mom was just blown away that I was laid up, and since we'd talked about me and my Boys driving back to MD for Christmas but now my foot was all jacked up and I can't drive at all, she ponied up for 3 airline tickets to fly us all back home for Christmas.

My poor boss... I'm working as much as I can from home, and he's been great. Totally supportive and positive. I have plenty of sick leave I can use up, and he's been very cool.

So instead of Thanksgiving week and then Christmas week, I'm getting both and everything in between! oh, and surgery in the middle.

Nightmare Before Christmas

I'm working on a plan to hold Christmas hostage. In the middle of the night, I will emerge from my underground lair and sneak into every home in the world (or at least my hometown) and steal all the presents, ornaments, stockings and even the roast b...
(suddenly the sound of Dr. Evil's henchman, No. 2, clearing his throat interrupts), "Yeah ah, Dr. I'm afraid that there was a fellow that already did that very same thing. He returned all the items and became a hero to the entire season of Christmas.

a peaceful, easy feeling

On these Holidays, especially Thanksgiving and Christmas, when I go outside there is a certain peace vibration that can leave awe in it's wake. The sound of gratefulness for each other. The vibration of Love as people go out of their way to make each other happy. The feelings of positive Lightness. It is like a cosmic harmonic chorus of souls singing with joy!
For those who are negative during this time I urge you to come outside and play, join in the feeling of love for loves sake or just bask in it's peace. Joy to the world, all the boys and girls...........Joy to you and me.....Enjoy!

well well well

you can never tell.

the way we have lived for a long number of years, is EVERYDAY is Christmas, everyday is your birthday, everyday is Thanksgiving, etc. etc. works for us.

there was a guy on NY radio a number of years back, and his line was something like 'everyday is a precious gift to be unwrapped'

love and peace.
