WOW, Mother Nature has really done it again! As I open the blinds, I see “one big cotton ball”. People I don’t even see the water. The fog is right up to my door, almost. The boat dock seems to be floating and the trees look like they are out in a big ocean of whipped cream. This proves that old saying, the best things in life are free.
I tried to wake the Hubby up but once again, he slept through the whole thing. He has a good reason for sleeping late, we FINALLY took his fishing boat out of the water and man that was a job.
When we started the project I told him, very nicely, that he was to tell me what he was going to do and I would do it. I would keep my mouth shut and not say a word! If you believe that I will tell you another story. I must say I did pretty well. I slipped up once and he began to shout and I just politely said it in my sweet voice “SHUT UP”! He did and we continued to take that wonderful fishing boat out of the water.
We store it in a neighbors shed and I did take my flash light because Mother Nature has decided to turn the lights off outside at four in the afternoon and the slower we got, the darker it became. I became the “best helper in the world” when I pulled out my flash light.
Guess what, Christmas is coming to the lake! I LOVE IT. I just become a kid again. My tree is up and I light it every morning just to get me in the mood. You see we have this tiny little house and this year I have crammed it full of everything that the Daughter didn’t want in her house and I was having trouble figuring out where to put my tree. The Hubby chimed in with the fact that I could put it in the kitchen or the bathroom. Of course my reply was REALLY! So now I am the only person who has a Christmas tree in her kitchen. I just love it. I can cook and watch the lights twinkle. As I have told you before, “it don’t take too much to make me happy”. You know HAPPINESS is like a light switch, you can turn it “on or off”. Each morning when I turn on the lights I really try to “think happy”! Wouldn’t it be wonderful if everybody did?
Hey, I have a little secret for you. Santa is coming to Wayne’s Place December the 17th. from one to four o’clock in the afternoon. He told me if I was good, he would let me be one of his elves. Maybe he will let me sit on his lap.
I will also tell you another secret, we are having the “Battle of the Christmas Lights” on the lake. Everyone on our street has lights blinking and not only do I have fog in the morning, I have beautiful blinking lights going full blast when I go to bed! I am truly enjoying the moment and I certainly hope you are. Bye now!
