I Love Thursday #10 – It’s December
The first week of December is almost over. The next couple of holidays are quickly approaching. It is easier and easier to come up with things that I love for the week. LeeAnna blogs at Not Afraid of Color and shares her ‘likes’ every Thursday. Several of our friends also share on a weekly basis, and it is rather addictive looking for all the positives once you get started. You are welcome to join us anytime!

I love spending time with my older sister and her family. My sister, Carol and brother-in-law, Tom only live about an hour away from me but it isn’t a trip I make that often. Definitely not often enough! We were able to spend some time this past weekend together, having lunch at the ‘Club’ which was all decorated for Christmas. I didn’t spend too much time enjoying the decorations or even the golfers out on a 50+ degree day. I spent my time laughing and chatting with family. It is wonderful.
I love this new rocking chair that I just purchased on sale on Black Friday. It is called a Sante Fe Rocker, and it is deceivingly comfortable. Hmm, it doesn’t rock all that well on carpeting but I may solve that with one of those small office chair mats. I have always loved to rock, and I know Dominic loves to rock as well. We’re a match made in heaven. ~smile~
Christmas decorations, whether my own or others – I love them! This year we skipped putting two single village houses up as that allowed us to condense them into two areas. We have a whole town in front of the fireplace with a train circling all the store fronts and then a skating rink in the outskirts. The second area is a really small village behind the couch. I also love driving around and seeing all the outside decorations. Just a beautiful, happy time of year for me.
Friday because that usually means Dominic is coming over for a visit. Last Friday was no exception. Here he is in his new ‘grandpa’ hat, being a trouper and staying awake just for us. He’s now 12 weeks old.
This was the 19th year that the Canadian Pacific Christmas Holiday Train rolled through our village this past weekend, and it is really cool! A box car containing carolers, Santa and a food collection for local food banks are highlights of the train’s visit. We are fortunate to be able to see the train pass by from our backyard and patio.
That’s it for this week! I hope your week is filled with many blessings.
