Our weather for this Christmas Eve in no way reflects the season. The news is reporting that it's the second warmest December in history.
~In front of me on the way to lunch today~
Even though it doesn't feel like Christmas, it certainly hasn't been stopped from coming. Time has not been on my side, because I ran out of it, and never did get my baking started. But I have high hopes to get the final package out to a good friend for their New Years.
Its been a busy week with my youngest brother who arrived on Sunday. The dogs adore him, and its been great fun to have him here. We think its been more than 20 years since we were together for Christmas. Today we celebrated by having lunch at my favorite restaurant. Afterwards my brother and Carl were off to see Star Wars.

This evening, as I wait for them to come home, I want to take a moment to say Merry Christmas to all of you, my friends and readers! I can’t thank you enough for coming by to visit us and keeping me and this blog going with your kind comments and support. I will be honest and say that I have struggled with continuing to blog this year. But what has kept me going is knowing how much I would miss the glimpses into your lives and your friendship, which I never take for granted. Despite my being erratic in posting this year, you have stuck with us, always taking a moment to stop by and leave your thoughts; it really does mean so much, and I cannot thank you enough for that.
From all us at Golden Pines, we hope you all have an amazingly wonderful Christmas! I hope you spend it surrounded with love, laughter, warmth, good food, and great memories.
