It's beginning to look a *little* like Christmas every where we go here at Rabbit Run Cottage! Hello dear friends! I hope all is well with each and every one of you and that you are enjoying the season. I am so sorry I have been off line for a few days! (waving at the sweet friends who emailed to ask how I was!) My computer had a few *issues*...ahem...that it needed to work on. Daniel was able to help it work out it's *issues* so it has decided to behave. For now. I patiently advised the computer that if it's *issues* continued, it was facing the scrap yard. yup. I do believe in tough love for computers. I am thinking of writing a book about it. Or not. Bill has been in Chicago on business (We had planned to go with him but Grace did not want to miss art club or sewing class and we can go the next time!) and Grace and I have been busy decorating! A bow here, a snowman there....a little at a time. Grace and I went to one of the Malls and did a little shopping and looking and being silly girls. She had long wanted a little hair piece and we found this one at a little kiosk! I think she looks just so pretty and sweet...Daddy gulped and said it looked like his little girl was all grown up! Last night my mother and I attended a Christmas gathering for the women's groups at our church. One of the ladies brought in her holiday Hummel collection and had a set at each table. We awoke to 4 inches of snow today! My mom and her dog, Abby, stayed here last night so both she and Kipper were delighted by the white stuff! Snow angels... I hope you are enjoying your week and staying well and safe and warm wherever you are! Enjoy your day....Happy Hanukkah to all who are celebrating.
