Season's Greetings

Well it is that time of year! The time that we are all rushing around trying to figure out what to get or do for our loved ones this holiday season. While I feel happy and am enjoying the carols, lights and decoration, I don't feel that special feeling that usually comes this time of year. I can't quite put my finger on why, or what is missing. As I think about it though, just what does create the feeling? How about you? What creates it for you?

Even if I don't find my inspired holiday feeling, I am happy and grateful to have such a wonderful family and large group of friends!

What ever you celebrate, I hope yours is a happy and festive one!

Gotta Love California Rainy Days

It was raining off and on all day today. I love days like this. It's not to terribly cold (hovered around 60 F) and it gives you that nice cozy feel. It inspired me to do a bit of catching up on things that I could put off for a day like this. So, I caught up on laundry, house cleaning, sorting through clothes, e-mails, Realty News that isn't urgent, and this blog. The best part is when all the catch up is done and you still have a nice rainy evening to relax with the family by a fire, cocoa in hand watching movies like Alice! I hope everyone is having a wonderful rainy day!
