‘Cause Christmas Isn’t Crazy Enough

If you celebrate Christmas, Merry Belated Christmas!  I hope it was filled with love and happiness.

And for everyone, everywhere, I hope the last few days were filled with warmth, (as in actual working heat), and power, and running water.  I know that depending on where you live, those may not have been things that you had.  In fact some of the people who didn’t have those things lived all around us.

Ice on the other hand is something that a lot of us have had a plethora of.

My hubby and I were very and amazingly  fortunate that we weren’t one of those people and we were able to help out our friends who weren’t so lucky.  We had an impromptu slumber party when one friend was going on day number two without power and the weather was dropping to -20 C/-4F, we took hot coffee and food over to another friend’s elderly parents since she couldn’t do it and with the rest of our neighbours kept their generator running, we ended up hosting Christmas dinner when that wasn’t the plan…..but it worked out fine.  All in all in was just fine and maybe a little busier than we had thought.  But, we were still surrounded by friends and love and that’s really what it’s all about.

I hope your holidays were great and I’m looking forward to 2013 being over.

    Even though the ice caused quite a bit of problems, it was so pretty! It’s just starting to melt here, now, after almost a week. Insane. Glad you had power and were able to help some other folks out!

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year’s! Even in Alabama we have snow and ice storms. About ten years ago I knew people who were without power for two whole weeks! And they had small children. Hopefully you’ll have a warmer new year’s.
