It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas

The weather has been milder than normal for this time of the year, but all that may change tomorrow as whispers of snow are in the forecast.
The Christmas decorating is slowly getting finished, I seem to do less each year.
Hope you are all plodding along nicely.
 
 
 


 
Christmas is coming, the geese are getting fat
Please put a penny in the old man's hat
If you haven't got a penny, a ha'penny will do
If you haven't got a ha'penny, then God bless you!

My great aunts used to recite that rhyme to us when we were little. Your decorations are so beautiful.

You may be doing less decorating each year, but it seems to me what you do is more beautiful each year.

Your decorations are beautiful. That teapot is stunning! I remember hearing that little poem from my younger days. You have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.

How lovely!

Did someone in your family happen to attend Baptist Hospital School of Nursing in Memphis? The beautiful young woman in one of your framed pictures is wearing a cap that looks very much like mine - and I went to nursing school there (but long ago).

There are whispers of snow in our Thursday forecast, too.

Hugs!
