I hope this season will be everything you need it to be.
However you spend this holiday season it is a time to share, to love, to review.
Preparation for Christmas is easy-going in my house. The lilies bloom in my garden and we have the hose on our heavily laden fruit trees and the cottage garden on this warm summer day.
The only decorations I do are the garden, my paintings, and new toys for the studio assistant cats. I do recall the Christmas rush of our youth, the excitement of the end of year art exhibition, carols by candlelight in the park, and how Reg and I I loved the excitement of creating a special time for our children.
In my senior years, I now love creating the peaceful life with Reg, and visits from my youngest daughter and her family.
