DON'T LOOK BACK TO WHAT WAS, LETS KEEP MOVING FORWARD
But first let's enjoy this cheerful Summer scene depicting life on the Island...
Hello dear bloggy friends! I trust you all had a pleasant Thanksgiving or if you don't live in the United States I hope you still ate well and feel blessed.
Today I feel thankful for all the people who have subscribed to my blog or put me on their blog reading list. I don't have a lot of followers but I do have a fair amount of subscribers and I feel very blessed indeed for each and every one of you! Thank you from the bottom of my lobster loving heart! 💖 I read all of your blogs, but, like a lot of you I don't always comment. I do make sure I comment regularly to those of you who leave me a comment. No pressure though! I just am grateful that you visit at all!
So, November is just about over. I am trying to stay positive so yesterday I dragged decorations downstairs and put away the summer bits and bobs we have scattered around this old house gathering dust. Believe me when I confess that this house hadn't been dusted the whole 5 months I was gone. Before I left I didn't think about who would be cleaning the house, just that Mom would get her needs taken care of. And she was very well looked after. No complaints there. I will be putting up a little tree and a fiber optic angel and the Christmas Village I bought last year. We don't have a lot of room. We are slightly cluttered with Mom's keepsakes, etc. And I have my sewing center in the midst of all the clutter. No, I am not going to post pictures because I just imagine that you all have spacious, organized and magazine worthy homes and would be shocked to see our clean but cluttered abode! I have never thought of myself as a hoarder, just those around me, but I am beginning to realize how much STUFF I really have and I really need it ALL! 😍
Moving right along...Did you know...yes, I know you know...
"Children are the rainbow 🌈 of life. Grandchildren are the pot of gold. "
We have two grandchildren who have birthdays in December. Our oldest grandchild, Alyssa, and our youngest grandchild, Joshua.
|Alyssa (on the left) will be 22 on December 5th. She is a senior in college.
|Joshua will be 13 on the 10th.
Yes, they do!!!
Although our landscape is looking a bit bleak and bare, there's a few places here and there that are easier on the eyes. We have another storm heading our way tomorrow. My mother hates wind, she's afraid of what it can do. The last storm three fisherman were lost at sea. They have evidence that the boat sank but the men themselves were not found. So sad.
get to 50 miles an hour and stronger!😯
I leave you with one of my favorite illustrations.
On this one I imagine that these little hedgehogs are tucked up by the fire while the rain is hitting the windows and the wind is howling around their little house.
