May Peace be your gift at Christmas and your blessing all year through!

I so wish this for you with all my Inner Heart.

And, it's been a month since Housemate Jim's hip replacement surgery.  He is doing really good now.  He is using a cane and the physical therapists are working him up to walking without it.  His trust in the new hip is gaining.

Because they extended the neck of the device, his right leg is a bit longer then the left so he "limps" about.  The PT is recommending a lift for his left shoe - around a half inch, which she said is quite a bit.  So that will be the next episode - and he doesn't like to wear shoes!  He's a hard-soled slipper man.

We had our first snow Thursday night - ended up with around 1.5 to 2 inches.  Hard to tell, as the winds were blowing pretty hard and created some 1 to 2 foot drifts in our back yard along with a few bare spots.  Weather folks are talking about another snow on Christmas Day.

Son will be arriving on Christmas Eve day and will be able to stay about a week.  This will be the first time have seen him in a year.  Getting excited.  Always great to see the two kids together and watch their interactions with each other.  They are as different as night and day - I know a lot of you can relate to that.

Well, time to get more baking done.  Today I am focusing on my grand-doggy treats for Buster.  He's getting scones, crumpets, banana cookies, corn dogs, muffins, and bar cookies.
 Oh look, he even has Christmas green eyes!
PS. Neighbor's dog, Isabelle will get some too.


  1. What a wonderful Christmas wish.

    So glad to hear that Jim is doing so well. Hope your holidays with family will be a great one to remember!

    And how sweet of you to fix the doggies treats, too. :)

  2. Sally wants to come live with you. Wishing you a wonderful Christmas Holiday with all your kids, both two and four legged.

    1. Sally can come to live with me, but think she had better stay with you guys. I'd spoil her!

  3. Wonderful sentiments.....peace in our hearts!

    Hope your Christmas is a very merry one!
