Looking for some holiday hope and inspiration?

Check out my latest post and review! 🙂

VEGGIES, YARNS & TAILS

Check out my new review for this eBook: Christmas Miracles, especially if you are in need of some hope and inspiration.

I really enjoyed the holiday-themed stories in this eBook

In a world that often seems to have gone mad (just watch the news!!) it’s so easy to give up on goodwill, hope and miracles, big and small. But the world ISfilled with all kinds of good people and wonderful things, we just need to be open to seeing and believing that’s true. 

I wish you all… a magical and memorable holiday season!!

10 Under $20: Holiday Gift Suggestion List 2015 :-)

A holiday poem AND my 2015 gift suggestion list! 🙂

How the time is flying…

Happy Shopping and Holidays 🙂

VEGGIES, YARNS & TAILS

The
first of
December
brought thoughts
of Christmas magic.
The Day, so soon to arrive.
Our expectations ran high.
Through snow days and blizzards.
Making a list and checking it twice.
Santa’s letter printed and ready to mail.
Christmas baking: heady, wonderful aromas.
Pageants at school, with costumes of many colors.
The tall lush evergreen, centerpiece of the season.
We decorated so carefully; each bough lovingly adorned.
With some old, some new, every one used and none forgotten.
The long days of dark December. Finally, homework complete.
Sitting in the darkened living room; time alone to drift away.
Marvelling at the masterpiece of lights and shining ornaments.
Gazing far beyond to the bliss to follow. Hurry, hurry, hurry!
Christmas eve: midnight mass and carolling.Treats aplenty!
Then the long awaited, special treasures.
The secrets of shining boxes and ribbons.
Finally revealed and always worth the wait.
Off to sleep…

Light a Candle, Say a Prayer, Make a Wish…

How well I remember this lovely ritual from my childhood; visiting our small, neighbourhood church.

Now, I send out this wish to my blog friends:

That you will find the true wonder and magic of this beautiful season.

And may all your wishes for the new year come true.

PS: I am taking a short blog break.

Will be around to visit at your blogs and then, see you next year! 😉

Holiday Haiku!

Christmas lights twinkle.

The Skater’s Waltz. A Swan Dive.

Snow softly falling.

Christmas Eve, midnight.

The choir singing far above.

Soon, gifts and giggles!

***

A new year begins.

Fresh palette, possibilities.

Raise a glass of cheer!
