ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
DECEMBER 19th, 2010
If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side
Find your Christmas tree today! Nothing beats the scent of fresh pine in your home during the holiday season. If you can't get a real tree there are plenty of excellent fake trees that look and smell just like the real thing.
To many people, only a fresh cut real tree will do for Christmas. The scent of fresh pine helps to capture the feel of the holidays. Nothing looks more real than a real tree, each one with it's own character and appearance.
By the 19th of December, most people have found and put up their Christmas tree. So if you are still treeless, this special day could be the day to do so.
May the warmth of the Christmas tree fill up your home and heart with glory and joys galore
Every Christmas it’s the same. I always end up playing a shepherd.

It feels good to say I got a lot done Saturday and come Monday I should be able to get my gifts in the mail to my out of town babes and their families.
As always I'll be off to church here a little bit later this morning and then this afternoon I'm going to spend some time in the kitchen making dinner for this evening. It's the 3rd Sunday of the month and when I'm home I always fix plenty in case any of my family wants to come for dinner.
I know that DS#5 and his family are spending today with her parents to do their family Christmas, but I think DD and her hubby are supposed to come.
After that, a little rest and relaxation on are on the menu.
COUNTING THE DAYS
Many merry Christmases, friendships, great accumulation of cheerful recollections, affection on earth, and Heaven at last for all of us.
2 DAYS UNTIL WINTER!
6 DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS
120 DAYS UNTIL CAMPING SEASON BEGINS
Keep looking ON THE BRIGHT SIDE of things.
A little smile, a word of cheer,
