Ahhhh....you just must love Texas!
We were in flip-flops on Christmas Eve and
then the tornado's blew in across nearby cities,
creating horrible devastation.
The darling has a coworker who lives in Rowlett, just North
of our city, whose home was destroyed on Saturday night.
She lost her entire belongings and her beloved cat.
Where would you begin to start over?
The above picture is Ms. Elizabeth's ranch.
We awoke to big fat snowflakes and freezing temps
on Monday morning.
Now.....December weather begins just when the month is ending.
We have cleared away the Santa's and the Snowmen.
The tree is still up and continues to softly light the entryway.
Perhaps we will wait until New Year's Day to take it down.
This New Year's Eve will be just the darling and me.
I remember when we were young and would
often celebrate the evening out in New Orleans...
all dressed up and ready to party!
Now....we love quiet evenings at home
with champagne, a good movie and a few appetizers.
I have seafood stuffed mushrooms on the menu.
Miss Abbie is hosting a formal New Year's Eve dinner
for her friends.....
Lasagna is being served......
I just love this....she is our girl....our only granddaughter!
I do hope the year brings us joy and happiness
continued good health.
I wish that for us all!
