"The weather outside is frightful" and I wish that Old Man Winter would make up his celestial mind on whether to rain , pour or drop delightful flakes of snow...  Yesterday, I wore my Spring coat, Winter boots and  Summer leggings.( Ha Ha)..I was quite a sight !!!!

No matter, because nothing can daunt the joy of the festive season with it's bright lights and warm ambiance of love..not even the cold moody temperatures BRRRRRRRRRRRRR.

I've decided to leave the works of mother nature   to the Snow  Angels. They're sure to bring the beauty of season round full circle in time for Christmas... because, " I need alittle Christmas..right this very minute".

I've just dropped my hubby off at  the airport heading for Japan  and have been left behind... Air Canada has an animal embargo on animals between November 15 to January 15... So what was to be a family gathering with grandsons will now be a ' me and puppy'  .. because she is only 6 weeks old , I cannot leave her with anyone.... So Dolly and I will  celebrate her first Christmas together... eating puppy cakes and singing doggie carols .."WOOF WOOF"

MERRY CHRISTMAS  TO ALL OF YOU  ......"It's beginning to look alot like Christmas "  as the magic of winter  castes it's spell and we all await the singing of carols and prayers of "Noel" ...

It's a time of musical merriment that I love... especially the carol singing. I attended my first Christmas Concert of the season...It was  Handels' sing-along  Messiah which is my favorite. ... Alas, I am being bad now  because the  " Halleluia Chorus is  now blazing throughout the house as I keep turning up the volume. I'm sure it can be heard all the way to the North Pole.

A present came early this year in the form of something  small and round and fluffy  " Woof Woof" ... Yes ... A puppy. We called her " DOLLY"...  I know three little boys who are going to be very excited, when we arrive in Calgary for Christmas Holidays. They're all sure to keep me very busy  during the festive season.

 If you're looking for an extra special gift  for  an artistic friend or family member  ... My wonderful friend  Monica Zuniga has a new Doll workshop. It's a  whimsical, fabric painting  doll  class that sure to delight your creative imagination for the New Year. So join into the magic of the season by creating a doll of your own. I'll look forward to seeing you there, my friends.
