Well I have escaped the farm and the cold and am enjoying the sunshine in Florida. Of course it did get cold here and actually snowed a little bit - just flurries the day after Christmas. But it is now warming up and supposed to be in the 70's by Friday. Yippee!!!
I am spending the holidays with family and my 3 year old grandson. What a wonderful way to see Christmas! This is the first year he really "gets" it and has been singing Jingle Bells -well not the whole song, just the Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells part. He has also been saying "Ho, Ho, Ho Merry Kristas" to everyone. (he is still learning to talk--sometimes none of us can understand him and I wonder if he learned speech from "Nell") But he is really doing well.
I got him the Polar Express DVD for Christmas not sure he would really like it as he is a firm addict to Sponge Bob but he did. In fact I have now seen it about 15 times and it is on again. Soon I will know it word for word.
Today we will go outside and play--maybe to the local playground, and enjoy the weather. Take the dog for a walk with us.
I will enjoy being here for the next several days until I have to go back to the frozen north. But I can count the days before our soldier comes home and I will be free to move on. I forecast warm weather from then on out as the palm trees are calling.
