My tree is up. My wooden tree. This is the third year for it. I still love it. A friend made it for me and I painted it and put the gazillion hooks in it!
I bought another string of lights this year! I still think that it needs more lights.
I just wish that I had a blank wall to put it beside. I could even leave it up all year - take all the decorations off and put plants on it or something!!
My long-time online friend wrote the following article and it perfectly puts into words the way I feel about bullies and people who look down on others.
After thinking about the entitled jerk behaviors I witnessed last night at the airport...
Here’s some perspective for all the ridiculous rage monster crazies, AND so we all can avoid *being* them this time of year 😂 because we’re all capable lol:
If you can afford to fly in a plane somewhere, or be picking up a loved one who can afford to fly to *you* for a happier holiday, get over your angries. It’s hectic at airports, stores, and restaurants between now and New Years.
PLAN AHEAD. WAY AHEAD. IT’S THE HOLIDAYS (duh).
It’s a really big pet peeve of mine when people who *don’t* plan ahead make their self-inflicted stress/lateness/rush everyone else’s fault and expect special accommodations *on top* of us all putting up with their ridiculous ragey tantrums. Anyone who has worked in retail/restaurant/customer service/airports literally laughs at and mocks people like this in employee break rooms everywhere. And puts your name on a black list. Because yeah it’s everyone else’s fault and we are all incompetent idiots that you aren’t given special permissions to jump a line, park in ....

In a blast of Halloweens past, here is a photo from 1999: my daughter started the tradition of The Wizard of Oz- inspired costumes!
Colcannon For St. Patrick's Day
My Sweet Daughter on Mother's Day
I got it from my Mommma Matthews 👋🏻👋🏻
I'd like to wish my favourite person a very
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!! 🌺🌹🌷🌸 (Especially
since this is the first year EVER we will not be
together on this day) I wouldn't be the person
I am today if it wasn't for you. So thank you for
everything that you have done for me & the things
you'll probably still do 😂♥️ I'm glad that I didn't
get switched at birth because then we wouldn't
be able to pass as sisters with your wrinkle-free face 😉
💞💞💞I LOVE YOU MOTHER 😘😘
Christmas Tree Project
I wanted a wooden Christmas tree because I needed one that could take up less space. It is flat against the wall so this is what I came up with. One of my brother's friends built it for me. I did all the painting. My daughter and I decorated it. I think it looks great!!
Me? Canadian, writer, RN, crafter, Girl Guide Leader, Red Hatter, 3-dog owner, photographer, geocacher, cool Mom, and all around FUN and FUNNY person!
