Last minute gift!

Bessie here.

Just wanted to show you
a last minute gift
I put together yesterday.
It's a small heart-shaped wreath
in red and silver
~ it's for my mother-in-law.

Hope she'll like it.

I wonder what Bea is doing these days ...? Love, Bessie x0x

Christmas is for Sharing

Memories, gifts, our time and our favorite recipes are all things we like to share at this time of year. It doesn't matter if we can't afford the biggest or the best. When we share what we have, and add our talent and a lot of love, Christmas can live in our hearts all year long.

I hope you're enjoying the season and sharing your hearts with those you meet and those near and dear. If you aren't in the Christmas Spirit, go see a child's Christmas production, even if you don't know a child playing a part.

It's good for the soul to see little ones singing their hearts out about the baby Jesus. Better yet, volunteer to get involved and help with the production. It's not too late to print programs or hand them out at the door or shake a strangers hand and wish them a Merry Christmas.

Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.


Only 10 more days till Christmas!

Love, Bea

We love Christmas!

Bessie and Bea are still here folks! I know, I know. We do deserve a swift kick in the behind for being so fainéant in blogging as of late. Sure we have a thousand excuses for not keeping up here, but we know you don't want to hear all the silly little self-justifications.

Now we turn our attention to the Christmas season. It is one of our favourite times of the year. We have some snow in our neck of the woods ~ just enough to make it feel a little more like Christmas, and we are busying ourselves with baking, making homemade gifts and decorating our homes while listening to Bing and Nat on the radio. Bessie is trying to get her Christmas gift together for her dear Bea. Now if only Bea would show up at Bessie's to collect it, everything would be fine.

Here's hoping Bea will post something on here too so that we can get into the grove of talking to our dear faithful readers once again. She has a nice camera, so maybe she will upload some snapshots of the sights around her home. Ta-ta for now and we look forward to your comments over the Christmas holidays!
