It is so cold here this week, and there are so many disasters galore regarding my husband’s frozen-up pick up on the rez, that it has been a real relief to receive garden seeds in the mail. We will start tomatoes and peppers in the next week or so.
What are your garden dreams? What are your hopes for the next year?

I’m not sure why but the cold weather this week found me yearning for our old Monday morning song by the Sons of the Pioneers. Luckily you can find this kind of thing on the internet.

Our son informed us this week that our 7 month old grandson was pulling himself up to standing on the living room furniture. “He looks so proud when he does it!” son reported. Oh, to be so proud for such a small (but essentially huge), accomplishment.
What small accomplishments are you proud of? When can small be huge?
Nimue, my tabby, cannot stay away from the tree. She’s too tubby to climb it anymore but the ornaments and the beads are simply too much temptation.
Any advice for keeping her happy but the tree intact?
Well, today is December 1. How are your holiday preparations coming along? I was jolted out of complacency by two Christmas cards this week. Time to get busy!
