Friday Funnies: Winter is Coming!

Hello My Happy People,

I hope you have had a great week and have even better things planned for the weekend. P.R. and I are trying to stay in for the most part. We leave for the UK on Wednesday and will be doing a lot of things out and about while there, so the next few days we plan to just be fairly quite and spend time relaxing at home.

I know in the states many places are already seeing some snow and I have to say I am a bit jealous. We often get cold, wet weather here in Düsseldorf, but it rarely get cold enough for snow. When it does snow, it usually only lasts a day or two. I miss a good snow that lasts a while ... a week would be nice.

We are almost ready to go on our trip and when we get home we will be in high gear getting ready for the holidays. I am not usually big on Christmas. For me the holiday usually just means stress, but this year I am really looking forward to it. My bonus daughter Mary agreed to come spend Christmas and New Years with us. I am beyond thrilled!

My other bonus daughter, Connie, has come and spent the holidays with us before, but Mary never has. We have all kinds of things planned for her visit: going to the Christmas markets, getting Glühwein (mulled wine), making Christmas ornaments, baking cookies for the neighbors (and us of course), and just spending the time together. We have a few surprises for her and I can't wait until we get to reveal it all to her. It is going to be an amazing two weeks.

I hope your holiday preparations are going well no matter what holidays you celebrate (or don't celebrate for that matter) and this time of year brings you nothing but peace and joy.

Have a great weekend, people!
