Count down to Christmas
Well- we are full of cheer around here.
Yesterday was Anna's birthday and today in mine.
She was the best Christmas/birthday present and still is.
My mother told me I should have known better. Having a December birthday is not easy since you do get lost in Christmas.
My mother tried giving me 1/2 birthdays- I got to celebrate with my brother. He was not that fond of sharing his and I use to explain over and over what a 1/2 birthday was.
So for Anna we celebrated her birthday on her birthday.
For a number of years she and I had a Birthday lunch. Just us-
Now she lives 5 hours away and has a slew of friends who treat her to dinner and or brunch or both for her birthday.
Now we are really counting down to Christmas.
We are putting shelves in the redone mix room.
I am baking today.
My sister and her daughter left here about 7:30- they stopped in between Florida and home to see us!
Thanks sis and yes I am sorry you could not get a dolphin in the car to bring back with you.
The bottles above are 3 red bottle from JB Cole Pottery- 1960's some of the first pots I owned.

A new Donna Cravena-2008 and an older Donna Craven-2001
Counting the days.
Keeping the spirit.
Thinking of you all.
