“Some old-fashioned things like fresh air and sunshine are hard to beat. In our mad rush for progress and modern improvements let's be sure we take along with us all the old-fashioned things worth while.” Laura Ingalls Wilder

Post Christmas Greetings

The Mac family really raised the roof .. er 'ruff/meow' this Christmas. There were nine of us (people) for Christmas Eve dinner at home followed by a candle light service at our church. Our guest suite was occupied by our daughter, Elizabeth, and her family .. plus their two dogs. The newly acquired kitty (that showed up at my back door during a snow storm 12/21) took refuge in the laundry room for two days.
Hold still Miss Kitty
Today is a day of recuperation. Cleaning. Getting creative with leftovers. Being thankful. Purging some of the old to make room for the new. Staying in jammies til noon.

The new year holds much promise with the upcoming birth of our newest grandson early April.
Snow fell Christmas Eve to blanket the area in a winter wonderland. Christmas Day was mostly sunny.
