This is our tree a few years ago but I hope to get one tomorrow. I love the smell of a real tree. That is when the house will get the feel and smell of Christmas when the tree gets put up. Do you like to decorate the tree? I like to turn on Christmas Music and have a glass of Christmas Cheer and then start decorating.
The hill has very few decorations but I did put a few things in the hall, dining room and living room. Nothing like usual. I just did not have it in me with all the work I have been doing to get ready for The Show. Three weeks tomorrow and a Sunday afternoon and it will be over.
Now for the topic , is there something that makes a memory come charging back from the closets of your memory?
This morning when the tea pot started whistling, Prince said "That sound always reminds me of Gran Dot."
When I went to the grocery store, last Wednesday, I saw a loaf of cinnamon raisin bread and I grabbed it up and thought of all the times, that Cousin Ann would bring us loaves of this wonderful bread. Of course this bread did not compare with those from the bakery in Florida, but it made me think of her as she would always send or bring these loaves around this time of year. I went home and for the last few days I have eaten pieces and had wonderful thoughts of Ann.
It is like those little round candies made of peppermint and butterscotch, I always recall my wonderful neighbors who took me under their wings. George Cotton was never without one of these candies and he would always offer you one. Ah what glorious memories.
I love to eat oranges at this time of year because my Grandpa Christian, who was the first man I ever loved, would always bring us Babes a sack for Christmas.
Since Mother love to DECORATE for Christmas, I will feel her joy as I trim the tree tomorrow.
The Kitty Justice is those who are now Angels left us with these little triggers so we will remember them.
