Here's something terrific that happened just this past Saturday. I received an email from the dear lady over at OctoberFarm blog http://octoberfarm.blogspot.com/ that I had won her weekly giveaway!!! Now that was a real pick-me-up!!! Almost as good as penicillin!!! LOL!!! I can not wait for the postal delivery that brings me Joyce's basket of goodies. I will share pictures!
My husband and I have a couple of terrific kids. They prepared Thanksgiving dinner for us, cleaned up the place afterwards. And then over the weekend, went out to a Christmas Tree Farm and selected a beautiful tree and brought it home.

We will enjoy the old traditional pagan custom of setting up our tree (it is a fragrant balsam) and bringing in other greenery such as holly and a variety of evergreens to place around the house. It is a way of connecting with nature during the dark days of this month. Greenery of all kinds help refresh the households' energies as we prepare for the Celebration of Light that we will observe on Yule.
Wishing everyone a Terrific Tuesday.
