Here you will find scattered pictures from my point and shoot camera, random thoughts from my little world, treasured memories of days gone by, hopeful dreams of the days yet to come, and a bunch of ideas - because I've always got ideas!

Seriously. Eight days until Christmas. I still have plenty to do, but the plans are as set as plans can be. From reading this blog you might get the impression that we go really crazy over here for Christmas. We don't. My passion is decorating the house. THGGM and I only spent a few hours shopping for presents. That took us to Walmart and Meijer last Thursday afternoon. There were no crowds. We are also not crazy gift givers. Actually, I don't think I'm very good at choosing gifts for people. I make weird stuff that nobody wants. I used to love baking cookies, but now I fear going into a coma from all the taste-testing required. So over here THGGM and I will sit in front of a fire listening to Christmas music. This is especially nice this year as we gave each other a Bose for Christmas. We'll watch a few Christmas movies while eating our favorite cheese balls. Our week leading up to Christmas used to be insanely crazy-busy. Not any more. And I could not be happier.
I'm the mother of three grown children, and I have a son-in-law and two daughters-in-law who are gifts from God. I've been married to The Husband God Gave Me (THGGM) for 38 years. On January 1, 2006 I became "Beppe" to Jonge, who was quickly followed by Famke, Kado, Feintsje, Hertsje, and Broeder. They have real names, but these are what I call them on this blog. I've always been boring and I doubt that will change anytime soon. Because.., well.., I'm dreadfully GOOD at it!
