Seasons of a simple spirit

 The good

The amaryllis that I planted at Thanksgiving bloomed just in time for Christmas! 

The fun

We celebrated Christmas the week before Christmas Day on a much smaller scale than we normally do.

My daughter, son-in-law, and grandchildren showed up in style though. 


The random

Christmas Eve was quite warm so I went for a long walk around town.

It was beautiful.

The good, the random, the fun


  1. So glad you got to celebrate Christmas with your daughter and her family. Your amaryllis is beautiful! I didn't do one this year!

  2. Beautiful memories of your celebrations!

  3. The "Delightful".


  4. yes, let's grab every warmish sunny day and take a walk. that just might be our sanity during these long winter months!

    i got my mom an amaryllis and i hear the aides are keeping it going in the nursing home. we haven't seen her in almost a month. but i am grateful for the gentle care she is receiving.

    one day at a time ...

  5. Sounds like you had a lovely time. And I love the joy on your grandchildren's faces!

  6. Sounds like a most perfect time.

  7. Beautiful memories to store in your heart! We had snow Christmas Eve -so we were quite excited! Shalom! ~ Maryleigh
