This is probably not my annual bah-humbug post

milkweedI’m not quite there yet. I’m not exactly sure what I’m feeling right now. I *want* to be looking forward to the holidays but I am not really. I want packages under the tree Christmas morning. Oh, not for me. I don’t need anything. For others. But nobody else needs anything either. Is an Eggs Benny breakfast and a Duck Dinner enough? I hope so.

The gift thing for successful grown children is difficult. What do they need? Nothing! Like me… Well, we do have a list from one of them. The other? I actually came up with an idea today but it’s not something I can actually put into a package. But we’ll see. The Commander somehow always came up with a small box of beautiful gifts for me well into my adulthood. I’m sure she did that for my brother too. I never gave her a list. Not sure I’ll be able to make that kind of xmas for my adult kids but we’ll see… But they will be here if the weather permits and, gifts or not, I love them so much!

I’m not sure where this link will take you but, I have heard this sound a lot this week taking walks by the ponds near Cubeland and it fascinates me way more than it should! Because I have been throwing rocks out there to determine whether there is ice on the pond or not. It’s not always easy to tell.

    For people who don’t need anything, there are always donations in their name to a favorite charity or two. 🙂 I may do that for one of Ashley’s presents. She would open a card from me that told her that X amount of money was donated to X charity.

    Wait what’s this idea you have?
