It's good to make another entry. I just love this little magical lighted house by Donna at This That and Hockey. She is amazing and I use her animations all the time. Visit her site and you will be amazed at her work. There are many great talents on these AOL journals. I wanted to share a couple of photos of my tree and the tree topper. It is calm here today and some sun is peaking out. Colorado has been hit hard with snow and here in Seattle we are recovering from the damage of the windstorms and flooding. Several people died trying to heat their homes with charcoal grills and generators inside. Most did not speak English very well and just didn't know...our Seattle Times published warnings in the paper in several languages....Spanish, Vietnamese, Thai, Chinese, Russian.... Want to send thanks to North Carolina...a company supporting the cell phone towers here sent trucks with generators all the way to Seattle to keep major cellphone towers operating. A lot of people have only cellphones and no hard lines to the house....we have one hard line coming in...and when the power was out it still worked.... I'm listening to the music of the Russian Transiberian Orchestra and their christmas CD...it's wonderful and seeing them in person a couple years ago was amazing..they are a must see if they come to your town...fantastic music and light show. Ok enough of my rambling...take it easy, be calm, have tolerance, what will be will be and if you just remember that the greatest gift you can give anyone is you and your time you will never dissapoint where it really matters. Just a little thing to remember..:)
So from my tree to you and yours a very Merry, Magical Christmas and a most Bright and Joyous New Years!
