You loved Ferris Wheels more than roller
coasters because life shouldnt be lived at
full speed, but in anticipation and appreciation.

I know, I know...Christmas is over.
But I love the weekends that still feel a little like Christmas...as this last one most certainly did!!
Gift #1 arrived in the mail ...from far off Blessed St George!!
There's nothing better than homemade granola ...blended together by the loving hands of 'grandma' Stephenson. Thank you dear Ethel..my dearest mother-in-law and grandmother to my kids and great grandma to my grands!! Thank you!! (I think I was lucky enough to snag one bowl of the divine concoction before it disappeared. Rationing next year....hiding it under the bed!!!)
Company arrived!! We LOVE company on the weekends...company any time!!
Soup!! But in truth..the word soup is not adequate enough to describe our Sunday meal. Im sure there's a better word...probably in Italian...for the bowls that were placed before us last night. Soup is just to simple a term. For when you think soup you probably think of Campbells or even Top-Ramen, But this 'soup was food fit for the gods...starting with Brazilian gods...for it was a Brazilian dish, tweeked by Mericar. You SHOULD be JEALOUS!!!
Fog is a gift. All weekend it was foggy...pea soup foggy. Fog is so much better than snow and freezing temps. Every mild day in January is a gift. Any day that isnt like lasts years January is a gift. Thank you God!
We had game night...and day!! First bowling...then the kiddies went to bed and we played Phase 10! It was fun!! Why dont we do it more often??!! TV always sucks us in.
Life is good!!
