In the Spirit

I'm finally feeling the Christmas spirit. I usually get into the swing of things when I get the gifts wrapped up. Mission accomplished, I say. Shopping is not one of my interests and I'm so relieved that I did very little of it this year. The few times I did have to go shopping, I planned so that I would avoid the crowds and take advantage of the specials.

The Toot is great during all the commotion of decorating, shopping and wrapping. She did cause herself to get a nose bleed from picking her nose too hard. One of the hazards of wrapping with my back to her while she patiently waited for me to be done. She's okay, I've just got to get that nose pickin' reasonably restrained. Everyday is another lesson to teach and learn.

These cloudy days are fantastic! I enjoy a drive on days like this. We were out earlier and had the chance to see a helicopter take off from the top of a building and into the clouds towards a small opening of light. It was amazing. The Toot was fascinated by the whole thing. When I look up to a cloudy sky I feel overwhelmed with happiness and I thank nature for all its beauty!

Life is full of wonders!

Here's a little something to give you a chuckle. He's a real cutie! It makes me laugh every time I look at it.


  1. Ah, yes, the ol' dry-air syndrome of nose pickin'! We can put a man on the moon, why can't we develop a gel for dry nostrils?

    Happy season.

  2. She looks like she is doing the Popeye.
