Simmering, Mulling, Shimmering

1. I've made a delicious pot of chili and a pan of corn muffins to leave on the back burner. It's a late night for everyone's dinner and this will sit and wait nicely for us.
2. I'm contemplating 'forgiveness' a lot lately. I come up with more questions than answers. Luckily, I have friends and Steve who will debate and ponder and humor me when I ask all of my, "what if's" and "why's". I might have to write more on this...
3. The daughter who isn't home much and stays shut in her room studying most of the time is super-excited about Christmas. It's not about the gifts, but the preparations and decorations. She says she wants to decorate the house so that when someone walks in, "Bam!", they'll see Christmas. Poor child, this is not how I operate. But I humor her and stay silent while she clears off two bookshelves for the Christmas village. (I was hoping to leave it boxed this year. What a scrooge I am! )


  1. Ah - that will be delightful - having a Christmas just hit you in the face when you walk in the door. Lovely.

  2. oh boy, i like that daughter of yours—the bam! of christmas where you can't miss it! teehee, you are indeed a scrooge, my dear.

  3. children, whatever age and christmas just go together don't they?
