Merry Christmas

Today was a relaxing day spent at home with my family. After going to midnight mass last night and getting into bed around 3:30 , we had a lazy morning and awoke a little before 11:00. I enjoyed the excitement of everyone opening their Christmas presents. Seems that they were especially good this year. :)
Tomorrow we head out on a road trip to Pennsylvania. We will visit our family in Pittsburgh and stay the week with them. I am looking forward to time with my relatives.
I wish everyone peace and love this coming year. May you see the brightness in your everyday surroundings and the love and compassion in people that walk along your path. Merry Christmas :)

With everyone home from school on Thanksgiving break, we had a contest of making gingerbread houses.  I had only bought 2 of them because I didn't think anyone would be interested in building them.  Well, pulling them out that one day created a surprise for me.  Seems as everyone wanted to do it.  We divided up teams and I told them I wouldn't help either team.  I did concede after Team B added 2 cups instead of 2 tablespoons of water into the powder sugar to make icing!  I will have to say they did come out shining at the end with a nice house.  Although my daughter on team A, announced that it indeed looked like two guys did it.  What she mean by that?  lol

The way you define yourself as a writer is that you write every time you have a free minute. If you didn't behave that way you would never do anything.
     John Irving  

The days past have been hectic to say the least.  I have found myself craving the free time that has been lacking.  It seems as though time is rushing by and I'm left with a feeling of exhaustion and of want. 
I have piled up pictures and entries that need to be posted.  I have missed writing in this particular journal and feel the need to enter again.  Even if only for my own satisfaction of fulfilling my passion of writing.  Lack of time should not be lack of creativity.   
Let's see now, where's those pictures.....
