Summing it Up...

Now, that I'm way on the wrong side of sixty, I feel that being true to self is important. "I yam, what I yam." Kindness and smiles are to be given away. Women are strong. Men are more vulnerable than we believe. Husbands may come and go...but one thing I know for sure is that I will NEVAH live without a corgi or coffee in my life if I can prevent it. Come piles of dog fur or hot water!

Nickel Tour...

Just a quick little peek, it won't take very long.
720 square feet tours are quick as a song.

We always liked Santas, and make them we did.
Winter therapy while the kids went and hid.
April in college, and Josh on his own,
Mama painted each night, home all alone.

Jim made this lit tree, all made out of beads.
Last year's gift for little ol' me.

April made this, our dogs in a frame.
Corgi, oh corgi, what cute little dogs.
Something they do though, is eat like short hogs!

We made this corgi, before we had one.
Who knew we'd have tri's~
one girl and one boy one.

This is our tree, tiny it is.
Small trees for small houses.
A good size for mouses.

Family is everything, a good way to live.
Wallies of pine cones, too sticky to give.

Over the sink, some doodads do be,
cinnamon ornies Josh made;
for Mama, that's me.

My favorite this year, is what's on this shelf.
Pictures of family,
some short and some tall.
We need to remember, always it's true,
that FAMILY makes Christmas, not presents at all!
