In the past,
I have been known to look back
over the last year
to see what I wrote about then
as compared to now.
It sounds like a perfect plan and can be very informative at times.
However, it usually is just a ploy
to cover up the fact that
I can't think of anything to write about.
So, this past week,
I have looked back in time and found a post that was written
right around this time last year
and if history can be said to repeat itself,
this is what that looks like.
The post dealt with a promise made (here)
and if you can believe it,
it is a promise that was made and fulfilled
but now is broken again...
...another year, same situation.
It is after Christmas for most of you,
but for us it hasn't happened yet.
I thought I would leave all the decorations up until our time came
but it has been so long now that I finally started putting most things away.
I plan on leaving the tree up and decorated in the parlor
but almost everything else
will be packed up
except those that just happen to fit
the winter scheme.
We have come up
with the date of February 19
so I am hopeful
that will be when it happens.
Poor Santa's head must be spinning,
wondering when this was
all going to take place.
It will be just
that much sweeter when it does.
Sunday morning it started to snow.
It does look pretty
but probably won't last too long.
That is the way it is around here.
It is beautiful looking out the window
but it is very cold so
lighting the fires. the candles and lamps,
seem to make it a more enjoyable situation.
I went back to the eye doctor yesterday
after seven weeks
from my last appointment.
My tests show
such improvement each time
that I now don't
have to go back for ten weeks.
He is hoping that
I can have a laser treatment then
and might not have to have
any more injections.
That would be a good thing!
I am down to only two more rooms of Christmas decorations to be put away
so I think I am right on schedule.
Hope you all are staying warm and cozy
and while you are celebrating
I will be thinking of you!
I might even add a few hearts to the Christmas tree!
Sharing today with:
Oh Judy. My tree is still up and decorated! I have my boxes out and may begin taking the ornaments off. Then pretty red hearts would be nice to put on! I'm loving the lights and hate taking it down. We've had some snow too last weekend and then was 12 degrees one night and the next it was 1 degree, then 12, then 15. I hope this cold front leaves!! The nice thing is that the snow is still here but the roads are clear. Before that, it was springlike at 57 degrees! This time of year sure keeps us guessing. I'm looking forward to some warm breezes, thought not looking forward to yardwork. Glad to hear your eyes are improving! That is wonderful!! Have a good week. xoxoxo MarilynReplyDelete
Thanks so much, Marilyn. Seems like we are in the same boat. I hate taking the trees down but I guess it is time. The parlor tree will remain for awhile but I haven't even been turning the lights on. My dining room table is bogged down with extra stuff from other rooms. I think I will have to re-wash all the dishes before we have our get together. It is very cold here but not snowing now but ice and white stuff remains on the sidewalks and lawn..Happy Tuesday..xxoJudyDelete
So happy to hear about your eye improvement. That is awesome. I think your Christmas celebration will be wonderful. Have a great week. xoxo Kris
Thanks so much, Kris. That is pretty good news and I am looking forward to our get together. I think it will happen soon now..Happy Tuesday..xxooJudyDelete
Oh no. You gave me the inspiration to tidy up my spare room. It was like your room. I always keep my living room lights up until February. Now its time to take them down and my Winter theme decor On to Valentine's Janice PS our bedroom still has Christmas in it.ReplyDelete
Thanks so much, Janice. I am glad I am leaving the main tree up for now. There is always a place for the twinkle lights and we always need them..Happy Tuesday..xxoJudyDelete
Hi Judy! So happy you are having improvement with your eyes - very good news. I know your family Christmas celebration will be worth the wait! JaneReplyDelete
Thanks so much, Jane. It is getting close now and we are excited. Thanks for the remarks about my eyes. I think they are getting better each day..Happy Weekend coming up..xxoJudyDelete
Judy I'm glad to hear that your eyes are improving. Christmas came down for us later than usual this year, and I have to say, I enjoyed the view. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas gathering! xoReplyDelete
Thanks so much, Kim. The time is just around the corner so we are excited. Needless to say my putting away is way over due..Happy Weekend..xxoJudyDelete
Hi Judy, it's always a slow process putting away Christmas decor. Every year, I say, I am going to be more organized! The snow is pretty. We drove up to Grass Valley the other day to have lunch at Tofanellis. Susie is the owner and she used to live in our subdivision. Great news about your eyes. I hope to meet up with you one of these days, maybe with Jain too. I am meeting with Jain tomorrow morning to get manicures. We all live pretty close. Take care. xoxoReplyDelete
Thanks so much, Linda. Tofanellis is a great place to eat. It is so pretty in summer to be able to sit outside in their garden. I wondered what had happened to Jain. Tell her hello for me and enjoy the weekend..xxoJudyDelete
Good to hear your eyes recover…nice to do a late Christmas with your family …and a lot of work to clean up everything after celebrating….have a nice week love from me and Leaf 🍀❤️🐾🍀ReplyDelete
Thanks so much, Ria. We are going to finally celebrate on the 19th. So now we can add Valentines to the celebration also..Enjoy the weekend..xxoJudyDelete
I'm so glad your eyes are improving. That's the best news. I still have two trees up (well, three, but I leave the angel tree in the guest room year round). Our celebrations are over but I need the light and the color and the ornaments aren't so much Christmassy as cute. Add a few snow folk and people wonder if I've done anything in the removal department. (Yes, I have!) So, you're not alone. And you know what? It doesn't matter. Not really, only if it's bugging us! So relax and just enjoy that time with your family coming up.ReplyDelete
Thanks so much, Jeanie. We are finally going to have the celebration on the 19th..I don't regret leaving the tree up so much as how I decorated it, but that is another story for another day..Happy Weekend..xxoJudyDelete
Your home is always decorated so beautiful and lovingly! It is hard to take down the lights after Christmas. I do hope your family has a wonderful time when you get together! And thankful to hear the good report on your eyes! Blessings to you!ReplyDelete
Thanks so much, Marilyn. We are looking so forward to the celebration which will finally come on the 19th. My eyes are doing so much better and I am certainly thankful for that..Enjoy the weekend..xxoJudyDelete
You know how much I enjoy seeing your Kitchen which is my favorite room in your charming cottage.... It looks so inviting and cozy in candlelight!! As I mentioned in the comment on your last post, NO SNOW here in NEPA all Winter except for just a dusting maybe twice!! Temps have been in the 40 and high 50's! I shudder to think about the water restrictions we may be facing come Spring with no melting Snow Pack to replenish the water reserves....So glad to hear that you vision is improving....I had an eye exam last week and was thankful that my cataracts that i have had since my early 50's are still considered very mild and do not need surgery yet....
Take care, my friend!!!!
