Santa has her Ho Ho Ho Back!

Finally, the news I've been waiting for.  The crutches are history.... I'm walking again!  What better Christmas gift could I ask for.  It certainly has been a long eight weeks and my leg is more than a little weak but I'm on the mend and ready to get back to work.  But first a little Christmas fun.

I woke up this morning (December 24) to fluffy white stuff.  I have a hard time getting excited about snow.... except for at Christmas.  It is a beautiful white blanket covering my world.

The pond is lovely blanketed it snow.  The water fall runs all year but during really cold snaps needs a heater to keep it from freezing solid and killing the fish.  So far this year it has been very mild so no extra heat is needed.  Still a lovely place to stop and enjoy.

The presents are wrapped, but there is cooking to do....
Have a Merry, Merry Christmas, I'll be thinking of you! 


  1. Great news about the crutches! I'll be doing a happy dance when I can get rid of this cane. ;)

  2. Fabulous news!! What a perfect holiday gift. I love looking at YOUR snow. ;-))

  3. Glad you're rid of the crutches. Have a very merry and blessed Christmas.

  4. I'm so happy to hear your crutches are history.

    We love backyard waterfalls with ponds. Our last two stix and brix homes had them, complete with fish--koi in one pond and small, colorful goldfish in another.

    Merry Christmas!

  5. That's a great present, for sure! I'm glad you're really on the mend. Your pond must be a nice place to sit and relax when the weather is nice. Merry Christmas,!
